The 4 hour online rule is annoying. I ve been here god knows how many times and for how long and it only registered 2h 49mins.
Fuuuuu, it is 5 post and 4 hour rule, not 5 posts or 4 hour! I read this wrong at first time.

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.

Newbie say hi !

Yes I agree the 4 hour post thing is very annoying but I guess it serves a purpose (post #3, 2 to go)

So what options do other forums use to avoid the 4 hour wait?

The five-post rule doesn't make much sense because people will just write these boring comments. But the 4-hour rule makes more sense so you can prove that you were browsing.

Bots can't make coherent, on topic posts, even in the newbie section.  Bots can browse just fine.

"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."

Seems like a good rule to me, but I wish I had realized it earlier when I spent a week reading these boards before I created an account...

You and I both lol

Great restrictions, there are other sites that I wish would do the same

So I'm four hours online, whats wrong?

Four hours as recorded from the perspective of the forum server.  If you are not browsing, you time out and the server won't count the time after that.  If you just browse randomly or too fast, the server might flag you as a bot.  So searching the forums and learning about Bitcoin takes at least four hours of active browsing.

You will also need a few more posts.

Thank you for the fast explanation. I read way more than four hours already on this forum, but I use to show all posts rather than showing pages. That was my fault I guess.

Oh, wow!

I'm delighted to find that I have just one hour and 30 minutes before I become an "established" member!

I feel so fancy.

 Cool

...Well, I will in another 1.5 hours of login time.

Hmm, a little annoying but reasonable.  I just wish I had made an account earlier, I could have met the four hour mark a long time ago.  One post down, four to go  Grin
