New user restriction

Hi all,

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)?

Apparently writing this topic granted me the basic badge which removed the restriction for me.

I thought I had disabled that limit. I’ll look again.

Ok, I bumped up a bunch of limits and upgraded everyone to Trust Level 1. New users will also get TL1 immediately. We’ll try this for a while and see how things go.
