This is useless. I'm around bitcoins for few days, studying few hours a day and trying to understand is as much as possible. But yesterday was the first time I needed to ask something in the forum, registered and can't find a "reply" link anywhere. After a while I found I need to meet these 5posts and 4 hours to be able to post anywhere. So I'm here for now, waiting to be four hours online.
I think there are many other posibilities to avoid spammers. If you just raise the limit of posts needed to post anywhere, only more worthless posts will be in this section.

Is this helpful? Say thx to 17JgJ4i9ngcxkzpyjooUkY559AegZk5agK  Smiley

A lot of people who may want to use bitcoins will turn away from it if they are unable to freely use the forums Undecided

This.

For an open currency, this is a very closed community.

Five posts is hardly an insurmountable obstacle. Anyone willing to take the time to express themselves in five posts over four hours is welcome. Meanwhile, anyone unwilling to take the time to express themselves in five posts over four hours... well the logical assumption is that they don't want to be part of the community in the first place. As someone who has been reading the forums and learning for a couple of weeks now, I personally prefer this to endless melodramatic/doom and gloom/QQing/troll threads.

Hopefully with this limitation instituted my eyes will get a lot less exercise from all the rolling they had been doing.

P.S. There's 20% of my initiation right there. Grin

.. to be able to post on the forum. Really. I have been browsing this "newbies" section for 2 hours now and can't stop laughing and wondering. Complete morons.

Does the 100 limit also applies to you?  Or do you registered an extra account for this sort of offending spam? In this case an Mod should care of you(r) other account(s) too  Tongue

My sole reason to register was the fact that i thougt i dould contribute some performance numbers for FPGA mining but ... i am not allowed to post.
What should i post about? Especially in this board, as it would be unfriendly to the other members. Posting in the wrong section is some sort of spam i think but thats newbies supposed to do. Or will after one did the 50 Post or whatever it is check for the quality of the postings? I have doubts about that.

I think it would be more clever to ad an spammer button and if the  rate goes over a decent limit the user will have a bann for some time/ forever ...

Sorry, I didn't make that post very clear. I wasn't addressing the 5 posts currently needed. I think thats a fair requirement. I was addressing the proposed 100 post count suggested by akiyama.

Aaaah, feeding the troll. That's where I got confused, sorry about that!

akiyama seems to be amused by simple things, is all. Leave him to his fun and don't take him seriously Tongue

A lot of it is because there is nothing to talk about in this section....we are doing anything we can to get out.

You could always use the limit to post constructive criticisms, help people, or engage in interesting conversation. No one is forcing you to do what you're choosing to do Wink
