So how many of you have this flashback that these newbie restrictions seem just like killing rats in EQ1 for hours and hours just to run from Freeport to the Oasis of Marr to kill caimans for another few hours of exp.... /ooc Train to dock!!!

Sadly yes I know no one camps caimans there nowadays.

If you were here in the summer, there was no "newbie section". We had hundreds of the most ridiculous threads. The same questions asked many multiple times. It took hours just to read through the new posts, and wade through the threads for something meaningful. It was annoying to us, but more so, I'm sure, to the people looking for the answers. Soon, you'll be out of here, and new people will come in with the same beefs about being a newb, cooped up in this cage.  Wink

Only for like two days. That was before it was figured out how to implement the 4-hour time-online delay. 50 posts was necessary to create a proper barrier.

If you have ~4 hours of online time and your existing posts are good, then you will be whitelisted on request. There's no need to post any more.

So after 4 hours and few posts, you have to ask to be whitelisted, its not something automatic? Its not very clear from the stickied newbie restriction thread. Would be good if this was clarified.

It is automatic. I don't see how it could be confusing...

I thought it was more too. 5 is not too bad.

I was talking about posters with less than 5 posts.
