How do you think, how to get better merit ?
There are just couple of things you need to think when posting or replying on threads. Such as, do you have sufficient knowledge about the topic? Can you contribute a unique answer to the topic? Etc.

If so, then go on reply as much as you want. But if not, it just mean that there are still things you don't know. And what do you do when you don't know something? (Besides asking another opinion through posts) that's right, you read. You research on the topic and try to understand it, when you're done reading and you understand the topic well then you may reply.

But beware. If what you think is already posted by another member and was elaborated clearly and concisely, please, do not reply once more cause things will get redundant. Also, when you research don't even think about copy then pasting it, it is called plagiarism and the forum is strict about this. To avoid plagiarism, cite your sources.

Just post good information on this Forum. Really you dont need to worry about.
If you post quality stuff related to the post and others find it useful then it will come naturally.
Best advice is be yourself (unless you can be batman ;) )

Users that have sMerit that is Merit that they can give , can send you merit.
They will not send it if you ask them and etc.
You will need to make high quality posts that they will like.
That was they will give you Merit.
Just need to be HQ.

For you to get Merits what you need do base on the reason for the establishment of the Merit system is that what ever information you make in the forum should be of high quality and meaningful to the forum. For that will increase the standard of the forum which will encourage prospective investors that want to advertise their companies.

This method is actually still ambiguous legal or illegal. If you have friends you may be able to exchange merit with constructive and positive post notes. I do not recommend this way but I think it's logical to do that if you have friends play in this forum.

I think this must had been in the mind of the admin while introducing merit system. Low quality posts were degrading the forums and this will repel advertisers. Without earnings, it is difficult to run such a huge forum.

Such people are being caught and given negative trust by senior members. You can also help by reporting such members.

 As far as I know you can only get merit if your posts are constructive and useful for the other members. Improving your post is the only way that will lead you to get a merit points. Buying merits is not prohibited by the administration. Being constructive to your topic is the best tip to earn merit. Make meaningful topics too.

You are right about that. There is no compulsion to post here at all. New members should read more instead of posting. You will learn with time.

I think lot of spammers will just leave the forum as they know that it is almost impossible to rank up without quality posts now.

Even you make good posts and help newbies in here you won't get merit points from them as they don't have, so is up to higher ranks to notice your posts like project owners or some team members of that particular project and and give you some merit.

Helping members and then expecting merits in return is not right in my opinion However, you still get rewarded for this. Suppose a new member asks a query here and you provide a good reply to his query asked. Whenever a senior member of merit source will notice this, you will get rewarded. I think once you get to the member rank, you already become aware of the sections and posts that have higher chances of getting merits.

You are already a higher rank member and should have enough experience about crypto. If you are talking about the new members, I think they have a lot of time to learn. For instance, they have to gain 10 merits and 60 activity which will take approx 2 months. If a person has good learning attitude, I think two months are more than enough to learn. Also, once he becomes member and starts participating in bounties, he will be encouraged to contribute and learn more.

Having or creating a quality post is like being lucky. You do not know of you are lucky or not, you do not know if "luck" really exists but all you know is that you are lucky in a certain way. That means, some can see your post as a quality post some of them will not and most of them will either see it as a quality or not but even though they are in the middle, they will not give you any merit. That is the truth though.

As we are all working in improving and bringing this forum back to its optimum state, let's try to break this type of stigma of stating that it's going to be hard for low ranked members to come through for the merit system simply because they are new. As the famous saying goes, "you got to start 'em young." Being constructive does not take that much time. As a newbie, I often posted to agree and ask a few questions; I never had the guts to go against ideas since I think I had no credibility due to the fact that I was low ranked. Let's change this from now on because as we can clearly see it, anything is possible in this forum. So if you are really eager to contribute into making this forum a better place, nothing is going to be hard. You can be constructive even if you're a new member, and with regards to receiving merits, you just have to be patient. For if you really are helping this forum out, no rank should define your credibility. A newbie/jr member can receive more merits than higher ranked members if you truly work hard to contribute informative and interesting posts. Just do what you got to do and don't let any rank discourage you from being constructive.

Whenever a senior member will notice he will or will not give you merits. I think a better idea was to get merit points or fractions of it from the length of the post. Other good feature could be to get "likes" with one click of a button instead of the complicated way how the merit system works, you are  taken away to a new page and you must type the amount and click send.. is very annoying for many users, includin me. My 2 cents, take it or leave it.

Please allow me to say masturbation applied more effort. What the point? Let us enjoy this merit system in doing more efforts of reading and helping the good flow of discussion. Then let us apply the force to make high quality post, if possible do it regularly to have more chance to get merit. Merited or not, just let it go and move on, make it more better while enjoying to give contribution. At the end be satisfied by the result whether you receive or not.

Yes, it is all about luck and English, and not about Content. Keep telling yourself that.

If you really want Merit, provide value to the thread or discussion. Stop telling yourself it is because of your English or luck or that people don't care about your topic. Yes, they won't care if you just post derivative drivel.

Point me, right now, to 5 of your most constructive posts that you think deserve Merit. I'll review them independent of your English ability. I understand there are some here who are more insistent on English ability and such, but that's a minority. Most people care about getting value from discussions here. Are you providing that?

The most important things to do to get merit points is reading. There have been a lot of this thread nowadays and you might find all the information in the official merit thread made by Theymos, and you can even make a strategy based on people statistic on when and where merit is given. It is not a hard thing to do, just search and read.

What is your mother tongue ? You can participate in respective local board. Lots of merits are being sent in local boards as well like Russia.

Regarding the unfortunate things that happened to you, I feel sad to hear them. Hope God gives you enough strength to face all this. I am sure that you will do good even if you are just tenth pass. There are many great people with limited education qualification who did well in their life like Sachin Tendulkar.

If you are sure you wont get any merit then why are you still hanging around in this forum? What does this even have to do with your personal life? Dont hope that people are going to be generous listening to your sob stories/half truths and grant you some merits in return.

Post by: nngella on June 27, 2018, 07:18:27 AM
As I learn and read posts in the forum, these are my recommendatios:

The definition of Quality Post is subjective

One member may find your post as "quality post" then will give you a merit while other members may just engage you with a discussion without giving any merit.  Hence, I would like to suggest that just make it a habit to post something substantial and always (yes, always) be mindful of the rules of the forum.  Prevent yourself to be part of the ignored list of the merit sources.

Start Small

Just start small.  You can start on the things that you know or your experiences that you want to share.  I know that being a newbie, it feels like we cannot contribute anything in the forum because we have just little knowledge compare to the veterans.  However, I think some members would like to hear your stories of success, failures, learning, and not learning, and the like.  You can also post topic that interests you, in that way you can provide good insights by using your passion on the subject as the motivation/fuel to make a good post.

Start with "Beginners & Help" Category

You can start posting in the Beginners & Help category for you to ask questions and to be familiar with the forum.  It is advisable also that the target audience of your first posts are newbies (in relation with the previous point "Start Small").

I think that it is very hard for a new member to create high-quality posts.
Especially if you a new person in cryptocurrency world.
You have a lot of work to upgrade your account.

That statement shows why new members are finding it hard to get merits ( note that I used 'get' rather than 'earn' )

If you changed the last sentence to "You have a lot of work to learn about the crypto economy". Then the application of that statement will lead to the acquisition of merits.

For example, I started a thread about running a Bitcoin node, and it was created to try to award new members with merits. The thread is here - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4547523.0
It hasn't received one reply. I can understand that many newbies will not have a computer that is suitable for running a node, but there must be a few who could start one. Many will disagree with me, but I don't think you can gain a deep understanding of Bitcoin without running a node, even if it is 'just' a pruned one.


Title: Re: How to get merit points ?
Post by: Sylon New Account on September 12, 2018, 01:54:04 AM
It's simple but need time. Writing constructive, creative, high-quality posts, then you will get merits sooner or later. The most important things is be helpful in the forum to help others solve their problems, or at least give them hints, links for more details, etc. Furthermore, merits will be given for high quality posts, but it's also a game of probability. Therefore, you should not pay too much attention on merits, just keep being helpful, you will get merits in the future for sure. Don't worry about merit points.

Steps:


1. Pick a topic.

Picking a topic to post on to may be the hardest part in the guide but any topic of your choice will do! I usually pick topics that are fresh(post that have few views and replies). Why? Because it would be an advantage if you answered the topic first, there would be no restraints and you can freely say what you want to say. Replying to the thread would be like a plain canvas waiting for unlimited possibilities. Picking an old topic is not quite bad either, especially if the topic is really interesting, but replies would be limited since most of the ideas are already laid off, including what you may be thinking and if this is the case, better not reply anymore and just pick another topic since this would just cause spamming of threads.

In addition, if you picked a fresh topic, people who are viewing the thread will see your reply on top plus it won't be burried with tons of incoming replies. Thus, giving your post a safe and sweet spot for any credit-giver.


2. Know the topic.

Question: Do you know the topic?
If yes: Good! Proceed to step 3.
If no: Research on the topic or go back to step 1.

Researching about the topic doesn't just mean reading an article or two, it can also be(but not required) watching videos about the topic or viewing some infographic about it. Anything goes as long as you understand and learn something new. If you think you're knowledgable enough to answer then proceed to step 3.


3. Answer the topic.

After researching, with your own words, try to answer the topic. Remember that answers may be short or long, it need not to be technical nor scientific. It just need to be clear, concise, and most of all sensible for everyone to understand. And don't even think about plagiarizing an article saying that you've made a good post, because people read, and if people noticed that you just copy/pasted an article then be ready for the consequences. Are you really trying to risk your account for some merits? Merits can be earned anytime but activities, reputation, and trusts takes time.

Now that you have answered the topic, be confident on what you have wrote and try not to think much about receiving merits. Continue on doing quality posts and im sure, little by little, people would notice and reward you for that. That would be all, thank you and godspeed!

Another point, which maybe more important for forum's newcomers is learning how to use Search Function of BT forum.
Here is link for them:
 [Tips] Guide for forum search  (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3127909.0)
The most important things to do to get merit points is reading.
Exactly!
There are dozens of available helpful topics/ threads which can help newcomers get answers for their issues without need to create new topics/ threads.

Additionally, there is another important recommendation for newcomers:
'Stop composing and publishing threads all the time'. Reducing number of threads published by themselves will increase the odds of receiving merits.

Meta is for discussing forum issues, not for shitposters looking to get merits. Looking through your post history I see an unhealthy obsession with obtaining merits, which, paradoxically, is one of the reasons you haven't received any as of now. And your posts aren't particularly noteworthy, anyway.

By that criterion, the report button should grow cobwebs and we may as well let the forum be full of spam and plagiarized posts…
The immense majority of reports are anonymous (i.e. not posted on a thread) and therefore have cero chance of being merited. Only some cases are reported on specific threads, but those are the least, and they rarely receive merit unless it’s a big bust or a complex case unveiled.

Since a user has to expect merit from other users, it's most times to their moods,
I see a lot of quality posts go buy without recognition.
Merit sources also helps, as not every user with smerits go to all threads looking for quality posts, most just stick to their preferred threads.
Some even merit their other accounts.
There is no better alternative system, (for now).

Lamenting does not help you achieve Merit. Make more effort and you will soon get there. Good luck!

The simplest way to get Merit is to stop complaining and be active.  :D :D

To get 1 merit this is really very difficult in this forum. We must improve the quality of our posts so that they are useful and help the members here. This rule is very strict but I think it's better than before where people can raise rankings easily.

Nowadays its getting harder to achieve merits. Honestly without having enough knowledge and special working quality you can't get Merit. I would suggest to spend more time on our forum to make your skill much better and expanding your own knowledge vault. Obviously you will get merits when your progress will be visible to others. :)
