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.

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

Yes, but bots won't be able to do anything outside of the newbie forums, and bots posting in the newbie forums are easy to identify and destroy.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Weeeeeell I was going to post some very interesting and adhoc comments in some of the other threads, but was unable to do so.

I understand the reason though, and kudos to the management of this forum... it must be a nightmare now.

I just read those other posts about people awaiting payment also  Shocked     Hopefully he's just having temporary issues and hasn't become a scammer.. it just seems suspicious that he's basically ignoring my attempts at communication.

Yep, just posting so that I can post more, nothing to see here.

This isn't the post you're looking for.

I had over 90 posts before the Mt Gox attack spilled my nether regions all across the hackverse. So I started over. Here in the leper colony!  Actually, I think this is a terrible idea. I was never offended by so-called "trolls" anyway. I found the ancient posters just as annoying as anyone else. In fact, number of posts did not seem to correlate to anything!  Post number 2!

Yeah 4 hours seems pretty strict for a newcomer.. maybe 1 hour would be better?
Actually 4 hours isn't that much, unless you had already lurked for that long and registered just to make a post.

As a just signed up member, I would like to use my first post to say how confusing the implications of this restriction is in so far as there was no clear indication my account was in "newbie-lock" mode and what it takes to get unlocked.

With that said, I eventually found this section (long time lurker, didn't even know this board existed), and agree that this is a very sensible restriction aside from above caveat.

On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays I believe that bitcoins are worthless, because they are not widely used, because they are hated by governments and competitors, and because they have a few little intrinsic problems.

But on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays I believe that bitcoin is actually the best currency in the world, better than all fiat currencies, precious metals, t-bonds, IShares, because they are non-inflationary and easy to move worldwide.

The question is, which view will prevail? Will enough people recognize quickly enough how useful bitcoins can or will soon be? Why?

Of course nobody can know right now, but perhaps you can post your strong opinion.

Hi folks,

I'm Alan and new to this forum (and also new to the Bitcoin mining business).

I have to say that I don't like the "newbie restrictions" since I have an urgent request in a specific thread. A solution would've been a verification email with a code in it or something like that, or a captcha code for these so called "newbies".

Anyway, I guess I have to wait four hours.

Cheers,
Alan

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.

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

Also:
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.
- You need 50 posts to put an image in your signature.

Note that it may take up to 10 minutes for your PM or posting permissions to be granted.
Undecided Undecided Huh Is silk road down? I can't even get to the login page!

We don't take care about silk road. It isn't our business and it isn't connected with bitcoin in any way!
