Much more reasonable then a 50 post rule, at this way they can weed out most of the crap and not lose their minds over it, either.

I think the rules are okay I know of a lot of forums where they require a lot more hours and posts.

Personally I have spent easily over 10 hours each week over the past 2 months, but I finally joined today as a user so I can buy / sell stuff for bitcoins and realized I can't post until I go through these trials.

Well, I think they're a bit annoying. Four content-free posts in the Newbie section aren't that difficult.

Why don't you allow enabling an account with a Bitcoin transfer? I'd consider 1 Bitcent to be reasonable for purposes of spam blocking.

Because it's a fair assumption that newbies come here to learn about bitcoin, and are unlikely to have any already.

"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."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Good way to weed out spam, and "rule breaking" post. Good Job!

I agree that five posts and four hours sounds pretty reasonable.  I think I can do it.

I wonder if something less rudimentary is better?  For example, paying a 0.01 BC fee to remove noob title?

The time limit is a good idea, but requiring post count I don't see as great, it just encourages people to post useless stuff in the newbie section.  Like this Smiley

I see, this explains a few things about not being able to post Smiley

Think I did something nice?

1 bitcent is a lot for newbies. I've just spent my first 0.03, and had to pay a 0.01 transaction fee, which means my sum total of 0.04 is now down to 0. While I'm all for avoiding spam (and broadly support the policy in this post), I'm not convinced that charging a nominal fee is the way to go; what's nominal for experienced users of this new currency is prohibitively expensive to people who haven't actually got any/much of it.

Jer, thanking the faucet for his entry into btc.

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.

Sad

I understand these restrictions but I just registered to ask a question!
