The restrictions on this forum are sub-par. The part where you have to browse for four hours is kind of reasonable and understandable.

However, having to post 5 times is ridiculous. The reason being is that it encourages spam posts. If you go to the newbies section most of is spam. The reason being is people just spam posts in order to post in the other forums.

This is a terrible idea. Now I have to sit here for four hours before released my project, and I have to make tons of these stupid pointless posts.

Thanks bitcointalk.

Right? Smiley

In all seriousness though, I post on reddit all the time, and I think it's going to continue being that way because of this.

I don't think 5 posts are much, if you have to browse for 4 hours anyway.

It's a shame u don't understand why there are 5 post newb restrictions put in place.  

Long story short, we all had to deal with them for a good reason.  If it were up to me the post count would go up.

I'd personally make it twenty posts, and twenty-four hours.

Back on topic: Yes, most newbies have no idea why that's there, and if they could see, the answer is already in the Newbie section.

Same I think it is way too lenient. People still complain, it's hilarious. I remember just reading some stickies and asking some questions I was curious about. I still do that today actually lol.

I love it!! Grin

It is a bit somewhat silly, but will filter out a lot of nonsense.

I understand the reasoning but it does tend to make a person post needlessly at first.

Also it doesn't work. I see my total time logged in as over four hours and my post count is 5. 6 with this one and I can't talk outside of this subforum...

I'm assuming it's just an anti-spam measure. It's a nominal amount of time and effort for someone new to do this, but it's more of a bitch for a spammer or a bot to do.

As suggested in another post, it might be a good idea if there would be an alternative like donating a tiny bit of bitcoin to a good cause to avoid the 5 posts + 4 hours. Some people won't mind to donate to a good cause as time is not always available :-)

What they don't know is that the Newbie section might be one of the best boards, since there's not a lot of scammers or nonsense.

Problem is... I have to make 5 "meaningless" posts before entering a discussion I really want to participate in.
Anyways... it's not the end of the world.

I understand perfectly. However saying you must post 5 times encourages spam posts. I'd rather just stick with reddit anyway.

Yeah that would help. I'd totally hand over like 0.01 to skip this shit.

Welcome to the newbie prison.

Strange, you show up as Jr. Member which I assumed is what you need to post elsewhere.

Also it doesn't work. I see my total time logged in as over four hours and my post count is 5. 6 with this one and I can't talk outside of this subforum...
