Thanks, In fact I've being reading the forum for a while. I wanted to post because some people was talking about China/Chinese when they knew almost nothing about us, and I felt obliged to share some information.

I don't see the problem. 5 posts, 4 hours online. Most boards require you to have at least 50 posts - the policy here is lenient (and almost futile, my personal opinion).

^ after running a few boards i agree.

though of course it's only a problem when there is a specific thread you want to get into NOW, but have been lurking forever.  haha Wink

Every post counts as a post. All posts were created equal.

As I see it, the problem is that requiring people to have a minimum number of posts for entry into the forum does nothing except for causing people to spam the "newbie" boards (and what a welcome that board name is).  It doesn't prove a minimum level of understanding of Bitcoins, or require nuanced discussion, or anything else - in fact, nuanced discussion tends to be *discouraged*, because there's better places on the boards for that where the "newbies" can't participate.

Cue a hyperactive board, filled with lots of very quick posts because everyone is trying to get their postcount up so they can participate in real discussions.  People who *don't* pass that barrier don't enter the boards; so in fact minimum post counts to get past the newbie board promote board-spammers over lurkers who might post far less often.

I can see the point behind require a minimum number of hours, but minimum number of posts on a mixed-topic board has to be counter-productive.  It doesn't do anything to promote real discussion or a welcoming community unless moderation is actively enforced.
