I've been mining for weeks and still haven't gotten rid of this annoying newbie status.

Restrictions like this are great, thanks. I ran a small forum for a while and I can't tell you the amount of spam I got just by looking away for no longer than maybe a day?

Also I'm very talkative so 5 or 10 or whatever posts won't be hard to do.

What else could I say?

this is fair, I first saw the notifications about 50 posts and thought  Shocked that's gonna take a while and it would be hard to not get boring in the newbie forum by that time, hah.

I'm talkative too, but these restrictions are hard to swallow. I don't doubt they reduce spam, but I think it discourages new users, some of whom could be interested merchants wanting to integrate Bitcoin.

You're right about that. There are more effective ways of banning spam than by just enforcing a certain post limit. If spamming is profitable, spammers will pay this price - the average newcomer however is discouraged and may leave before even reaching the "real" board. There are very good forum addons that automatically classify spam and ban/freeze the corresponding user. I think one of these should be installed to reduce the spam problem instead.

Nice thread, now I know that I'm not the only newbie that find this status annoying.  I just wanted to post something informational but I guess that has to wait for some time.
I would find it much better if you would have to solve some sort of logical puzzle or do a bitcoin quiz in order to post, at least as long the newbie status isn't gone.

Interesting. I don't spend a lot of time in forums so I have have never actually run across restrictions like this before. I guess it makes sense...

I fully understand the restrictions concept to avoid spam issue, however posting 5 messages would lead to a long topic of useless stuff (... like the present one).
I did spend alot of time on this forum for documentation prior to mining installation. Now I got a huge problem, I cannot openly ask the community advice to solve it. Should I register sooner ? I certainly would with a clear restriction policy (like in top of forum, sticky annoucement, not only Newbie section).
Yet I find the log time pretty accurate to see if someone stay long enough on a forum to avoid hit'n'run poster.

Gah!  I should have registered when I first started reading the forums.  I'm waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay past that 4 hours online.

I have just joined and understand the restrictions in place for newbies. I am looking forward to being able to participate in the other sections of the forum.  Cool
