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

This is a unique idea for discouraging spammers. I run a couple of forums that could use it. Will have to look into how to implement it there.

Feel like investing in a Miner?:

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.

lol...4 hours seems like a lot at first, but once you start reading everything about the ins and outs of bitcoin, it goes pretty fast

I suppose this makes sense.  Heh, I wish I'd noticed this section of the forums sooner though, I've already spent many hours going through the various parts of the mining section.

All good though, I'll get to know people and such, socialize...

It's arguable either way. It's good to have the rules in place, but it's also very easy to get whitelisted. Just leave your browser open for a few hours, and come here and type five posts right away. Anybody can do it without working hard at all.

While it's mildly annoying, I understand the reasoning.  Still, I'm not sure how much it will deter those who are seriously determined.

I would say at the very least that something about the "newbie" restrictions needs to be added in the user profile area.  I only just recently stumbled across the newbies section further down in the topic list discovering why I wasn't able to message anyone or post anything anywhere else.  At least movie the newbie section to the top of the forum listing.  I've been looking at the forum page for weeks and only just now happened to see the newbie section with its helpful note as to why I've basically been locked out of the forums until now.

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.

5 posts is pretty reasonable..

I think the restrictions are pretty reasonable to prevent spamming, at least make the viagra companies spend some more time coding to post newbie posts.
