I guess you don't have to discriminate all newbie accounts. There are some rare scenario that those accounts are sometimes handled by knowledgeable on the industry, if you limit newbie not just on speculation board and onto others as well I guess that's stereotyping them. We can't restrict those who do FUD as that's what they do you can ignore them if you want.
At least the head admin does not have intention to reimplement Newbie Jail, and has not shown any signal that he will change this approach.
Disabling the right to wear signature of newbies, and restrict newbies whom can not earn a single merit to become Junior Members are good strategy to control them, and somehow motivate them to contribute more in the forum (to receive at least a single merits, before start to spam again  Roll Eyes ). There are some other contributions from forum community, such as Spambuster club, and plagiabot, are also helpful to eliminate Newbie-spammers, whom are too lazy and dumb.

I am support into the disabling of the signature of those newbie on some boards as some only wanted to comply the quantity of their posts because of what they wear, hoping more managers are onto this as well.

Such things already applied months ago, Newbies first with original merit system, then Junior Members with Junior Member demotion wave in September 2018.
Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements
Due to excessive garbage-posting, you now need 1 merit to be a Jr Member. All existing Jr Members who didn't meet the requirement were demoted. Also, newbies can no longer set any signature or personal text.

Nice to see this topic on the proper board. I was expecting OP to move one of the topics to move it to Meta instead of creating a third one. In case OP is not aware, you can also move your post to other boards (option available at the lower left).

As I said on the other similar threads (now deleted), you cannot assume that all newbies are complete noobs about crypto or blockchain. There are other avenues to learn. Limiting where they can post here is unfair.

<...>
Since the thread I posted a reply on is one of the deleted ones (for being triplicate), I’ll add here what I said in that thread (no need to self-quote my post, since it was deleted along with the thread):

While some ideas of the kind is recurrently brought up on Meta, favouring Newbie accounts being more restricted to where they can post (and even to the frequency of posting), the current stand is no:
<…> Limiting newbie participation is very harmful for a community. Newbie jail will never return: I consider the newbie-jail period to have been extremely damaging to the forum. When barriers to participation are too high, then the best people often just won't go to the trouble of joining, and the people who are willing to jump through the hoops are often people who aren't good for the community: people with nothing better to do, scammers, get-rick-quickers, etc. Having a permanent newbie jail policy would improve things a lot in the short-term, but would end up being a fatal poison to the community. <…>
In the specific case of your thread, the accusations have not caught eco so far (or maybe even spotted) by any DT member yet, and thus there is no related trust feedback not flags/banners. That would be a grave stain to your account and threads, but requires a certain protocol that entails going beyond a mere accusation post on your thread created by a Newbie account, as is the case. So far, that front is in the clear.

As to the Newbie accusatory posts, you can report them if you wish. They may or may not be deleted though. Nevertheless, it would be good to refute their accusation which is mainly based on the photograph of the same person with apparent different names on Twitter and Wikipedia. That should be addressed with a plausible explanation, just to leave a written counter-argument to the alleged accusation (I did not find it on your thread, but I may have missed it).
You could also open a post in Reputation if at this point you consider it necessary, in order to get other people’s feedback.

There are forums where newbies should not be allowed to post; forums where it is expected for them to have more experience levels before they can contribute anything.
How can you know the experience level of a person behind a username?
Yes, they might be Newbies in terms of the age of their account here on this forum but they can also be very experienced in real life but they didn't create an account here until just recently.

We are all here to learn and grab knowledge. Sharing of idea or knowledge is for everybody to air his or her view about something.  Restricting newbie is like withholding information from them. If newbie shouldn't speculate the price of bitcoin, that means they shouldn't have the right to acquire bitcoin cos they have no knowledge about it

I'm more bothered about the dreadful coloured formatting, and the pseudo-spam appearance, and I didn't bother to read much of the post as a result.

I think it would be a big mistake to prevent new members posting questions about minor alts. One of the most useful aims of Bitcoin Talk is to help newer members to avoid the multitude of scams that are around in crypto. It is also useful to discuss some of the newer minor alt projects. One that I tried is BAT, and that seems to be picking up slowly, another is BitBlocks, but that seems to be in decline. I thought that both of those had some long term potential, but it is fairly difficult to determine if the project teams are sufficiently committed to realise this potential. Discussions on suitable boards here can be useful for members to make decisions. Just because a member is new to the forum, it doesn't mean he is new to crypto, or doesn't have useful knowledge to share with us. Lets encourage constructive new members to become more active, and teach them to avoid spamming and encouraging fraud.

If Bitcoin didn't exist, bankers would have to invent it.
