Well, like others I finally realized, after numerous clicking, that there are special rules involved as to getting any "reply" button.
Albeit being a bit of an annoyance, I can understand this policy. I've seen board getting messed up big time without such policy.

So - let's roll and get this user account going!

Cheers to you all,
Willy

Newbie here. Good to know that there are some restrictions in place to ensure that people don't spam the boards. Smiley

I don't agree. My coins have been stolen (that's how i feel about it, a better term may be 'taken hostage') by bitcoin-central and i desperately want to add to the discussion how i feel about them. I feel screwed over by them so badly... blegh.

Yeah, the 5 post rule prevents spam (and creates this otherwise useless post)

Maybe you should try the whitelist request topic.

The new rules encourage newbies to:

  • start an autoreload mechanism in their browser over night (to get the 4 hours)
  • post nonsense answers such as "New newbie here!" or "I agree here" (to get the 5 posts)

So I'm afraid those rules make the forum more attractive for trolls than for non-trolls. I wonder whether the trolling really declined since those rules were established. Is there any evidence on that topic, positive or negative? Did that really help?

This.

So I'm here trying to get answers to a straightforward question: why doesn't my wallet show an accepted hash that I (apparently) calculated?

--snip--

So do I have to have generated a block of 25 (50?) hashes to see something in the wallet? I think I might have read that somewhere or maybe it was from pooling or I dunno what. This is more of an experiment than anything else....  Everything else seems to be just fine, so I guess I must be missing this part.

Seems rather off-topic for this thread, but you seem to have misunderstood how mining works. If you are part of a "mining pool" (and I assume you are), you have registered on the pool's site (e.g. btcguild.com). The reward for finding a valid hash for the next block is currently 25 btc, but the odds of finding it alone are tiny. Mining in a pool allows you to get a share of the rewards proportional to the amount of work you put into it.

Accepted hashes in this context is the pool's way of finding out how much work you are doing. Depending on the pool, you currently get around 0.000003 btc (3*10E-6 btc) for each accepted hash (also known as a "share"). This amount is paid to you BY THE POOL, so you need to add a payout address (one you control, generated with your wallet) to you profile on the pool site.

Depending on the pool, you may or may not be able to get really tiny payments transferred to you, so you might have to let your miner run for a (perhaps long) while before getting anything out of it.

does being "online" 4 hours mean just leaving the the forums open in your browser for 4 hours? Assume there's an inactivity timeout?

Due to a mass of trolling, only established posters are able to post in non-newbie sections. You are considered "established" if you have spent 4 hours online and have made 5 posts (new topics or replies).

If you have really good posts, you can post a request for preemptive whitelisting in the appropriate topic.

Also:
- Newbies cannot upload their own avatars.
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.

Note that it may take up to 10 minutes for your PM or posting permissions to be granted. (The system automatically checks every 10 minutes and promotes people as appropriate.)

So to solve the spamming problem you are actually suggestion that we spam your forums with at least 5 empty meaningless posts in a thread nobody reads. And the "white listing" requests doesn't work either!

Brilliant, you are probably not Satoshi...

I am happy with these restrictions; therefore leaving a post to get up to my minimum to be a non-newbie. Thx!
