It's okay. I'm a lurker so I didn't mind. Was kind of annoying that I lurked for quite a while before even making an account, so had to do it some more when I was ready to post.

Not perfect, but it is necessary. There are a few spammers (manual, not bots) that hit the site regularly. Nothing really stops spammers dedicated enough to do it by hand, so we have to contain it.

I've been lurking around for a few months and it is taking some real effort to actually get in the mindset to post instead of lurk.

It would be nice if we had access to few more part of the forum like Off Topic or something that doesn't need to be contributed directly into the Bitcoin.

yes it would be nice

it would also be nice if people put their brains in gear and took a few deep breaths before posting, didnt spam forums. didnt troll others, only posted facts, spread peace not war... I could go on, lots of things could be nice.

Unfortunately in life we meet things that appear "unfair" to us, usually this is a result of "a few bad apples spoiling it for the rest".

bad apples have been here.....

i guess this rule was made after i made my account cuz i have posts in other forums but now i can only post here Smiley

def dumb but understandable if they had spam problems.  if they really want to fight spam there should be a demonoid-esque system of invites/vouching where you get in trouble if you give somebody an invite and they spam.


isn't Gox in serious danger being at a .com address?  i fear governments are gonna seize Gox like the poker sites when btc market cap increases.  then the US DOJ will have a money grab incentive and they can freeze almost any bank account in the world...

That's actually already in place, however the users can't do it directly like with Demonoid - they have to ask one of the staff members or post in the whitelist request thread.

The community is significantly being effected with trolls and people set out to discredit Bitcoins as a whole, any deterrent is a step in the right direction.

I've been a fairly long time lurker myself and find the "newbie jail" to be an annoyance, but given the way Bitcoin attracts troublemakers, I can kind of understand it.

Even though I'm still a newbie, I can appreciate the system. Some other forums get flooded with worthless posts in every section, and leeched and spammed by worthless accounts. So honestly, I'm happy this forum has the newbie system.

This forum is unique because it also provides a history for the users which supports their reputation.  How long you've been here, how many posts you have, how many +1s other users have given you on transactions all provide some insight to the user behind the alias.  I can't think of any other forum where the alias matter as much.  I think the rules make sense.
