Why can't I post in the rest of the forum

Is there a restriction on new users? If so this is a horrible idea because it's really limiting the growth of this forum.

Its a form of spam prevention. Not very good as it seems that scripters can still bypass it by staging user accounts.  I didn't think there was a restriction on new users.  Can you post what kind of error you are getting when you try to post in another section?

We have never implemented a "newbie jail" before, but there have been a few new folks in the past that claim they were unable to post in other areas. If this happens again please post here again with exactly what happens to see if it is a forum bug. Thank you
