Just wasted 15 minutes trying to figure out why I can't post or reply (except here, which I just found out).
I will never donate to this site as it cost me 15 minutes of my life before I even started using it!

15 whole minutes? Wow...

I take it you didn't actually read the site rules when you registered your account.  You just blindly checked a box that literally says "I understand that I will initially be unable to post to most forum sections, as explained above."

Here they are again since you clearly skipped them

Quote
Here is some important information about the forum. This is not a rulebook or agreement.

RESTRICTIONS FOR NEW MEMBERS

After registering, you will be unable to post in any section except "newbies" until you have spent some time on the forum and have published a few posts.

If you are registering to ask a question, please ask it in the newbies section. Do not wait to ask it just because you must post it in "newbies": the question is very likely to have already been asked. If you don't end up getting good responses, you can ask it again elsewhere after you are established, or you can move the entire topic.

If you are commenting on Bitcoin, use your newbie wait time to read more about Bitcoin. If you are criticizing Bitcoin, find similar criticism using the search tool to see which points have already been covered. A good use of your newbie wait time is reading Satoshi's old posts.

STAY ON TOPIC

Every reply should contain some comment that is relevant to the topic post. Do not reply *just* to another reply -- include at least some on-topic comment.

If you would like to reply just to an individual reply, you can create a new topic about it.

MOVING TOPICS

All members have the ability to move their own topics. The link is at the bottom of the topic page. Do not ask moderators to do it.

ILLEGAL SITES/TRADES

Do not post trade offers that are obviously illegal in most of the first-world countries. Do not link to or advertise sites that are built to allow such trades.

Okay, that's very helpful now that I'd found about this from other posts, but just FYI I registered and browed using a mobile device and it's difficult to spot instructions that way.

Couldn't the software simply redirect new users to the Newbies section or leave the damned "reply" link in all topics but link it to these instructions instead, so people wouldn't leave this site and google for how to post on SMF forums (as your own help section - I'm talking about the part about posting/replying - doesn't mention anything about the newbie rules!)?

I may do it too, but you probably didn't feel like donating that day, did you? :-)

Damn! You got a great user name. I was thinking about using the same since I used to be a janitor at Walmart long ago. Welcome to the forum, Janitor, and here's to hoping you bring VALUE to this BitcoinTalk.

Dude.  You literally checked a box that says "I understand I can't post in most forums." You have no right to complain. Stop whining and learn about Bitcoin.

Lol, i spent nearly 18 hours in this Forum, as I just learned about BTC and wanted to figure out as much stuff as possible. [note so self: not the best thing to do, two weeks ahead of the finals]

ahahaha this about sums it up. You wasted more time of your life OP by making  a thread about it. After 3-4 mins why not log out , press register again and read the text underneath where you register then go back and log back in and you would know Smiley You are the one who is ridiculous not the site.

I'm pretty sure I spent approximately 36 hours attempting to read every post in the forums before I first posted.  Shortly after that first post, newbie purgatory was created.

I'd vow never to donate as well, but I seem to recall seeing that Mt Gox owns these forums?  If that's true, I've already donated plenty over the past year.

Satoshi started this forum, and it has been speculated that Satoshi started/owns MtGox as well. Satoshi is not running this forum anymore, Theymos is, and MtGox most certainly does not own it.
