I appreciate that the mods don't have the time to remove the scam posts from these sections, but it would sure reduce the clutter and volume of them if users needed a minimum activity level before being allowed to post.

It's common amongst many of the other forums I browse, and it's already included in the forum software so it's not even a lot of work to implement.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Sadly I don't think that we will see this happen. Remember the newbie jail was here to prevent new people from spamming nonsense in all sections, and yet it was removed.
I'd personally put ~50-100 activity requirement for the marketplace..
Maybe we will see some changes now that BadBear is promoted.

I would love for the newbie jail to come back. It would prevent a lot of DUMB questions and limit the scammers a tad.

Newbie here, very late to this party and still finding it difficult to get started.

I just posted this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=757885.0

Trading is a big part of my motivation for being here but reputation, trust and trading is a bit of a chicken and egg situation. It's been pretty useless trying to trade without trust and reputation but what is reputation built on non-trade related activity really worth? So maybe a Nickel & Dime trading child board would be useful for that purpose as well. Or a trading thread restriction mechanism that excludes people below a chosen level.

It's a tough question. Reputation and trust is difficult to pin down in a meaningful way. Just being on a forum and making lots of posts for a long time somehow misses the mark but I can see it's better than nothing.

I would love to see something like this implemented. Although if it is implemented, then their sale/buying activity will just eventually start leaking out to other sections of the forum, which will create a lot of off-topic posts and spam.

I have my own personal policy anyways, which is to almost never deal with a newb in the first place. Each person can have their own internal filter, so although an official policy would be nice, I don't see it too necessary. What OP said is true though: most forums do not allow new accounts to do business until they reach a certain post count.

You can thank your other fellow newbies that are out only for a quick scam. There are just too many of them, and it ruins it for the rest of the legit newbs.

One still can buy or farm accounts to scam. It will only, maybe, remove obvious scams that people do only because the nothing to lose factor, but the most sophisticated ones still will be around.

I don't dispute that, they'll never be gone completely I'm just trying to reduce the volume with a simple fix.

The overwhelming majority of the ones I see are users with 1 activity, 1 post.

Absolutely not.

I'd much rather see an untrusted stranger in the market day in, day out than a few trusted members selling shit back and forth.

Some people come to bitcointalk ONLY to sell stuff on the market for bitcoin. It's nearly free advertising to post. Honestly, as long as they deliver the services / product they say they will, it should be fine.
