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!

I think this is pretty spot on in terms of restrictions, certainly slows the trolls down!

I am definitely not writing completely useless posts just so that I can move to the grown-up forum!

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).

I'm a little irked I have to wait to jump into the forums, but I guess barriers to entry prevent morons from investing their time in trolling, eh?

ohhhh. i rember those days....

(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...
