I noticed that as a new user I cannot post more than three replies on the same topic. While I understand the rationale of this it makes it impossible for me to take part in the Advent of Code thread (at least not for more than three days). The proposed workaround in the popup to edit a previous reply doesn’t work as I don’t seem to be able to edit my older posts anymore.
What exactly are the criteria to be not considered as a new user anymore? And is there a way to remove this restriction from the Advent of Code thread (as I might not be the only one with this problem)?
