I don't think that the required 5 posts is a good idea.  It just forces to post useless stuff.

The time restriction is fine.  People should read the forum before posting.

I won't be bothering with five posts, I'll just use another forum.

I only joined to answer a question that is directly relevant to me, and this retarded "newbie" system means I'd have to spend potentially hours waiting to do so.

Get your act together and fix this BS; it's unbecoming of a forum associated with such an important technology.

Incidentally, yes. There are Irish users of Bitcoin. You'll find them in your local hacker/makerspaces. But the OP won't know that now, will he? Nice forum.

Ya know, all these people bitching about the 5 post/4 hour limitation cap need to chill. It would probably benefit you all to take a few hours and soak in the information here, listen/read and keep your mouth shut.  Just cuz you're not a newbie to BitCoining, you're still a newbie here.  Take some time to examine the forum and see how it operates. My guess is the owners don't want you here period if you aren't willing to do that.

I think I missed something... where did the OP insult Irish users of bitcoin?

Hello from a fellow Irish resident, though can't say I'm actually.. Irish.. save by descent.

I think a moderation system would generally be better than making everyone do five pointless posts.

If everyone had a bury button, spammy and trolly posts would simply go out of sight.


I agree.  Im more of a lurker and can't really find anything meaningful to post on the Newbie forums.  I've had a 940Mhash/s rig up and running for several weeks now and would love to share my results with the mining forum but can't.  Instead im stuck here looking something to post with little substance i.e. great post, nice app, etc.

I've got an idea:

There should be a faster alternative way of becoming a member (for those who do not want to spend 4 hours and write 5 posts).

For example, a newbie could donate 0.01 btc and automatically become a member.

Or he/she could make a deposit of 0.1 btc (which would automatically returned to her/him after she/he publishes N useful posts and spends M hours online).

I don't think trolls are ready to pay/risk their money.

Although it does tend to make sense to establish some level of restrictions to prohibit abuse I belive that the appropriate measure should be inacted. Perhaps I am incorrect but I get the impression that required posts to groom a new user for more privilages are not nessesarly reviewed for additive content. If this is turely the case then how does this deter someone from hitting the quota through random giberish?

I would think that content would need to be reviewd to ensure the validity of the new user if this method is to be in place. However, the other suggestion of opening an option to placing BTC down would ensure the person has something they really want other to read. This would support the form operator and reduce overhead of validating users that choose this path.
