I find this to be quite logical.

So what, everyone has to sit here and post 5 times before we can take part in the real discussions?  Ok Tongue

Of course 4 hours can delay some trollers from register new accounts, but it can be also an option for people with good reputation to bypass this restriction.

I can see why the policy is needed, but it's not great if you're someone who likes to make occasional thoughtful posts instead of spouting masses of rubbish.

Oh well, this seems to be the best thread to spam - I give in.

I see where this policy is coming from but it seems to be seriously flawed.

1) the four hour limit just means that people will idle, occasionally switching pages to make sure they're still logged in and logging back in if they get auto-logged out. In essence this limit accomplishes absolutely nothing while annoying legitimate users

2) Personally I think the limit should be higher for links. Even though the average user of these forums is going to be smarter than most people who browse the internet, it's still a high risk, especially when pretty much everyone here has bitcoins to lose.

3) .14 --- Sorry, just had to make a pi joke.

4) If anyone who has the power to do so is reading this, the new user policy needs to be better publicized, most forums to do with a global sticky that stays on top of each section's thread listings. That way new users (like me) won't be stuck scrambling around wondering why they can't post and getting frustrated until they either give up or, like me, find their way here.

Yeah 4 hours seems pretty strict for a newcomer.. maybe 1 hour would be better?

Yeah it does seem kind of strict, but I can definitely see the reasoning behind it. So the slight inconvenience is well worth it in the long run in my opinion.

I was wrong about being able to just idle btw. You don't have to post but it seems that you do have to be doing something even if that just means going from thread to thread.

Yeah I've just been lurking the forums for a while trying to get my time up, 1 hour milestone ha Wink     hey this is kinda off topic but has anyone else been able to get in contact with BitcoinExchange thru email/im/pm? I've been trying to get in touch with him for 3 days now about my order and I haven't received a single email or instant message back, even though his AIM keeps going from online to offline every 7 or 8 hours

Doesn't sound like it. There are some other posts in this forum about this that you might want to look into.
