Everyday the forum is filled with questions that are already answered and I am sure everyday many newbies are banned for very basic mistakes. These are the posts that you should read:

- Protect your account against hacking:
(Note: Once hacked it takes a very long time to get it back, even if you protected it)

- Before complaining about the merit system, know that many, far too many people have already done so. The system is here to stay.
Example of complaints and answers: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4429728.0

- If you don´t know what merit is, you want to read this post created by the forum manager/owner Theymos. Sooner or later all members become interested in raking up (newbie to Junior, to Member, etc...) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2818350.0

So, to rank up you need to have a certain number of post, being a member for a certain time and also, and that´s possibly the most difficult part, earn merit by doing good posts.

An one of the best compilation of advice and general information:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1689727.0

If you can´t read all of them, read at least the forum rules. It is really easy to get kicked out.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=703657.0

Particularly:
- Avoid spam, that is same or very similar message repeated several times. Avoid posts without content like "I like it", "Thanks", "Me too"...
- Don´t PM members or admins without a very good reason, better ask in public.

...
In addition, it is important to emphasize the golden rule:
- NEVER PLAGIARIZE. Copy/pasted stuff is sadly common here in the forum and has become the first reason to get banned.
- NEVER COPY/PASTE the same all over the forum.

So keep that in mind: everything you write should be ORIGINAL and it can be posted once (at least you translate it into some other language).
If you copy/paste, no matter if it is your own text or somebody else`s one, probably you will get a permaban.

Also, try to be helpful. See what knowledge you have to contribute and if you are able to help answer other user questions. Know this forum has a great deal of members and try to behave in a way that doesn’t need moderation. This means keeping track of your passwords, securing your account, and not contacting administrators with issues that they clearly do not have time to address.
