So what prevents somebody from spamming a massive thread like this 5 times doing:

+1

and then just leaving their account logged in for 4 hours while they sleep or something?

considering i had my pointless posts from last night deleted - i'm guessing a mod does  Sad

Haha me too.  Oops Smiley

The explanations here make sense, but it still doesn't tell me why I've been here for weeks and still don't have the 4 hours required...  I guarantee you that I have more than the 4 hours at this point reading threads and such.  Now time spent posting might be below that, but other than making spammy-ish posts, I really don't have that much to say that I can fill up 4 hours with posting...

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 (new topics or replies).

If you have really good posts, you can post a request for preemptive whitelisting in the appropriate topic.

Also:
- Newbies cannot upload their own avatars.
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.

Note that it may take up to 10 minutes for your PM or posting permissions to be granted. (The system automatically checks every 10 minutes and promotes people as appropriate.)
now I understand

Look in the upper left corner.  It tells you how much time you have spent on the site.  I am up to 2 hours 11 minutes.

I don't think dedicated trolls are going to be stopped by this but at least it will slow them down a little.

newbie restrictions are really annoying. it would be at least be useful to allow posting and mark posts as pending or something for newbies. at least then you don't have to waste time in the newbie forum

It took me a while to realize that I can't post and send PM's. I thought I need to wait for a Mod to get verified to post or something.

Sounds fair enough. Was wondering why my account was still restricted but my total login time is still less than 4 hours.
