It's so frustrating not being able to post or even ask question in certain topics. The whole reason I joined was under the presumption that as a newbie to bitcoin I would be able to ask these so-called veterans about some useful things, instead you end up stuck in a topic just for newbies. Isn't this the exact opposite of what a forum is suppose to be about? Users and members learning from each other? Not just some elitist organization where the senior members get all the perks and newbies, well pretty much just watch them.

Yeah but they do this to prevent noobs or scammers from quickly filling up the other topics with spam.
Plenty of "veterans" still visit the Newbies section to help them out with most anything and to welcome them to the forum.

A single post with 4 hours of online time and you status should change from a newbie to a junior member.

Okey, here it goes. My first post, which should be substantial, whatever that may be (probably not just a few sentences with meaningless words Wink ).
I registered because i would like to trade/buy some LRM bonds, to do that you have to PM, and for that you have to post first (and wait 4 hours). So hopefully this post will get me going.

Although I understand it is necessary to have some sort of restriction for newbies, it is still frustrating Cheesy

If only it was four seconds and not four hours...

I find these restrictions rather silly. One post of significant value? What is significant? Not to mention an additional 4h wait.

Seeing previous restrictions these new ones are lax in comparison, but it was ludicrous then and silly now.

To think you'll stop any spammer by saying "yeah, pump out a few sentences and wait" seems a little naive, don't you think?

Regardless, this is one of the biggest forums for bitcoin and you make posting like pulling teeth. You may stop some spammers, but you won't stop them all. To make it so asinine to post is only hurting the real posters who want nothing more than to increase the quality of the board, but they can't because they have to sit in the newbie section like you're disciplining children.

I think the initial wait + substance of the post is fine. It helps mitigate the people who don't really have anything to contribute. Most people will be turned off by the 4 hour wait, and hopefully those who stick it out will actually consider sticking around and really becoming a part of the community.

Well, I am getting old. Since I hadn't found the forum rules at the usual place, it tooked me 20 minutes to find this very informative thread to hopefully help me out of the sandbox.
Very annoying policy...
