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

Reminds me of the BBS-days in the mid-1980s where I had to post a message of minimum content before I would be allowed access to the file section for downloading (never a restriction on uploads though).

(Image of accoustic coupler)


Sweet!  Ya I remember those days too, I was FidoNet node 1:207/107 for a while, as well as a WWIV node too.  I did a bit of accoustic coupler calling with a 132 column printing daisywheel TTY that my dad brought home from work.  Was really noisy, had to keep the accoustic coupler away from it or it would pickup the noise and start printing garbage which would make MORE noise and print MORE garbage, kinda like speaker->mic feedback...heh...

Cheers!

I can see how trolling would be a problem. A lot of lazy people are unwilling to put their heads down and plow through all the resources and tutorial and tools available .They'd prefer someone hold their hand.

This is a small price to pay to minimize the trolling.
