It was quite frustrating when I wanted to answer a hardware question, but after staring at the screen for five minutes wondering where the reply button went, I quickly gave up.

There are many ways to prevent spam and trolls, and this is an effective way, maybe not the best, but it does make it difficult for newcomers to contribute. All I got to say now is: Na na na, I got out Tongue

P.S.: The 4 hours limit is kinda ridiculous. I'm not sure the policy makers know how long that can take to accumulate.

I agree, it seems like a good effort to curb the trolling and get truly interested parties to participate in an effective manor. A few days ago there were several users who were bashing the owner of a web page selling - ahem... "less than healthy porn" and that crap went on forever. While I agreed with the points made by some of the people sticking to their ethics/morals, it did distract from the actual topic at hand and the constructive information relating to a big hub in the bitcoin accepting retailers. The admin deleted those troll posts eventually. My point with this is that while this is a measure admin has taken not all will agree with, I COMPLETELY see why they are doing this.

Where you do your mining from.

Is there really any point in joinin a "rig" if you ca just buy bitcoins from an exchange anyway?

I am waiting for my account being verified by Bitmarket.eu??...I have put my eBay username as a CV, hopefully that will get me in as I have over 4000 FB.

If you are only going to use bitcoin short term then yes, makes more sense to just buy. If you want to use bitcoin long term, long enough for earned bitcoin to pay for your rig, power, etc, then mining in a pool is worth it.

5 post requirement just encourages someone to spam here and there to get their 5 posts.

I'd really like to make a post on the deepbit thread asking why I haven't seen the bitcoins I tried to withdraw from my account there even after waiting 4 hours, instead, I am here. . . spamming.

I'm sure you could just ask...I mean, if you've got a valid reason to be in the forums faster than the rules allow, you should discuss with a moderator. I get by all sorts of rules in day to day life by appealing to reason...you just need a good reason.

About four hours and five posts. And the only reason I'm even saying that is so I only have two posts left to make.

My 'time logged in' seems to stop counting while I'm reading posts, so I have to force myself to keep switching pages while I'm on here.  Tongue

You shouldn't feel bad for being stuck here. This is one of the few sections of the forum where people actually talk about bitcoins. Out there is just madness...  Tongue

I think the 4-hour wait is fine but the requirement for posts encourage people to spam - like other members said here.

It is irritating indeed. However, it does protect the rest of the board from illegitimate spam and trolls.

Mods and Admins should be protecting the rest of the board. This is just lazy administration. It doesn't effectively stop spammers because its very easy to circumvent the 4 hour/5 post limit.

I disagree, it takes no effort to write a script or leave a tab open.

I'd rather let the wisdom of the crowd decide, and have running votes with ban thresholds for suspected spam and trolls.

Or maybe a one-time registration fee...

Very true, it would be very easy to write a Javascript script to do precisely this.

So one should come here before he/she has problem on bitcoin.
