I understand the admin of this BBS is only trying to keep the spammers down and for that i congratulate them but these newbie restrictions are a bit much IMHO.

Simple Q&A CAPTCHA can keep out most bots in SMF.

Sure but if someone where paying me money to troll here then a 4 hour 5 post limit wouldent do much to stop me.

All it really does it makes this forum very inconvenient for new users.

aye, I do agree but there are some seriously dumb people that take advantage of the newbie forums. Just to allude that bitcoins is an obsolete option as an alternative currency. We need math, lol.

You will need to have 4 ACTIVE hours logged. Check to the top left to see your logged in time. It is not enough to just let the site sit in the background. You need to actively surf on the site for 4 hours.

EDIT: And as I'm writing it seems you just reached "Jr. Member". You should be able to post elsewhere now.

Hello. I agree that these restrictions are annoying, but if it is good for the site then OK to be inconvenience a little the new users.

Its extremely annoying because the total time logged in never increases. I understand its "active" online time. But frankly the newbie forum is not that active and there isn't anything I can do to be active short of reading threads that I can't even reply to yet.

Yeah, it's SO FRUSTRATING. Gaahhhh just wish I could pariticipate in all those other threads out there, but I'm  stuck in the kiddie pool hoping nobody takes a shit in it.

The worst part is sitting there refreshing the page waiting for someone to at least reply to you so you can actually type out a post.

Exactly, this is pretty much just forcing low-content posts just to get your count up.  What a short-sighted policy.

I think it's a good idea to weed out the trolls and spammers. It's a bit harsh on newbies that are active, but if they're active 4 active hours is nothing.
