Title: Merit [NEW]
Post by: khai29 on March 22, 2018, 04:21:56 PM
More people unhappy for the merits system, Because many Members stuck their rank because of merits required, but many Members are happy about it for the reason to prevent low post and spamming so they use merits system,but even if you make a quality post you cannot avoid having your post unnoticed because there so many post in the thread,but don't lose hope because someday they will be notice the post we made and we're not the only one like this because many also Members seek to have merits to be able to rank up,that why start now and make your own post.

I've put you on ignore for creating redundant duplicate threads.

Op I hate to say it but your posts are poor, this is a shitpost. You really need to want to improve the quality of the forum to rank up. This will mean educating yourself in the English language further, but don't worry it will not be for no results, as at the same time you can read the forum and learn about bitcoin. In the 3-6 months it takes to improve your English skills you will in tandem become a Bitcoin expert (notice I don't include Altcoins or ICO's there) when you come back to posting if you take my advise you will gain merits at a rate similar to the current activity ranks - so you may be 6 months behind but you will not be limited by merits.

If you don't understand the concept then my post is wasted on you and the merit system was integrated to purge posters like you, if you do get it then great I have indirectly assisted one shitposter in converting to a quality posting member of the community.

I don't think you guys will do nothing if your post is good enough but still don't get any merit :)). There are a lot of competition topic about Merit, if you feel your posts are good enough, you just need to report your post in these topic and you'll receive Merit for your posts, as I remember actmyname also run a topic like this, you'll get 20 Merit if your 20 rencent posts is good enough :))). Stop complaining about Merit anymore.

I agreed, OP's posts is more similar to this guy https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1116027 with a topic here in meta section with "only 5 merit to member!!!"  title which mostly contributes in bounties and some posts with one and two liner posts like to the OP.
To OP, yes it is sad that merit existed because it is now more difficult to rank up, but it is worth it. Making constructive posts (with English language) WILL NOT ONLY benefit this forum but also will benefit ourselves. Just try to understand.

And also, please be aware of this
I think that anyone who creates a new thread about merits at this stage can be considered to be a spammer.

Stop complaining about Merit anymore.

I am sorry but I disagree with it, I don't think the solution for not receiving merit should be reporting your posts. I have lost count of the posts I have made supplying links to videos, websites and useful articles that were the answer to the question being asked. I didn't receive any merit for it.

I am 100% in agreement that the quality of the posts should be improved, but the wrong method is being used, and it is a method that can create a little "mafia" of a few people who agree to merit each other, even if they publish plain BS.

I have already being contacted on Telegram by fellow forum members asking to exchange merit "to help each other out" and I told them I am not interested in playing dirty tricks just because I dislike the merit system, so I know what I am talking about.

A better moderation is what is TRULY needed: not a system left in the hands of the members who could just end up allying themselves for their own benefit as I just said above and exchange merit that is not really deserved.

When I say better moderation I mean something like "if you post crap I will delete your post and give you a warning, and if you receive more than four warnings for the same reason (posting crap) at the 5th warning your account gets banned PERMANENTLY".

It's just that plain easy. This current merit system is unfair to newbies and is the best fuel for creating "mafia clans" among members.

So, although the problem is real the wrong solution is being adopted.

Just my two cents, of course.

In my opinion those people are either alternate accounts of a banned member or maybe account farmers.
If you are here to earm money by spamming the whole forum then i doubt anyone will give you merit for that. But if you put effort into the post you're going to make.

I'm less surprised about that than the fact that he's earned 4 merits already. 

They're all for this post as well which is just copy and pasting an article (which is properly attributed but it's in English in the Filipino board):

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3095597.msg31959382#msg31959382

These sorts of posts really shouldn't be getting merit as it'll just encourage users to copy and paste articles to get merit instead of having to actually write anything themselves.

But the fact is this guy will never get any merit in the topic.
This guy should change attitude, should contribute to the forum, stop crying and complaining.

What is new in this topic except the [NEW] that you used in the title. You are just repeating what has been told here multiple times already by a number of members in the meta section. There is no harm in opening a new thread about merit system but it should be done only if you something new to add.

Even expecting some merits for your posts is not bad but do not let is affect your post quality negatively. You should put more effort because of this instead of just copying what worked for a member in past.

I am also agree ,the merit system isn't preventing spamming.It will create another platform,where who have more merit can sold their merit and the one who is merit source can give the merit to their fav member or what he will like.

There should some other parameter also to generate the merit like after some time,there will automatically credit some merit.but UR post is good then u can earn early and improve ur rank early.
There is also some benefit for giving merit to others.

Your words sound like the merit system released difficult requirements so that you are not able to earn merits by yourself. Can you really make a high quality, constructive thread to earn merits? If you can't, you should leave the forum and find somewhere else that is more appropriate for you and has more comfortable rules. Merit system was created to control spammers to rank up to higher positions in the forum. Therefore, there is no probability that Theymos will give each user specific number of merits based on their time spent (online) in the forum. It doesn't make sense and violates original objectives of merit system.
It will never happen. Please forget it!
Merit system has changed and will continue changing the forum, control spammers  and let them stucked at their current low ranks.

Agree! Merit system can not directly prevent spamming endemic in the forum, but the system will be able to prevent spammers to rank up to higher levels in the forum. Furthermore, due to its hindrance on spammers' ranking process, it might reduce their nummber of spamming threads (just might occur, and reduce, not prevent entirely).

Sir...I have seen your post on some threads and it seems that you've been putting some users to ignore if they're shitposting. I just want to ask, does putting them into ignore benefits us? Or its just yourself? Because if it is I'll also put some accounta into ignore especially on some sections that I've been visiting that has so many shitposters.
(Some one can report this as a non off topic and be deleted, its ok for me... It's just that I think Mr. JET CASH also ignores messages from other people...)

No, it won't. The merit system only can significantly reduce the number of spammers to move up to higher positions in the forum through their spamming threads. However, the system can not reduce spamming threads. Why is this? With current rules of the forum, newbies (sometimes) and Junior members can still join signature campaigns, therefore they will keep publishing shitty posts. The spamming endemic will only ended if Theymos launch new rules which completely prohibit newbies and Junior members to wear signature codes and don't allow them to join signature campaigns. Only Member and above can join. If this one be implemented, spamming will come to the end soon.

What stops a member from spamming the forum after he has become a member ? These habits will not go and they exploit every such opportunity irrespective of their rank. Best solution is to completely remove all the signature campaigns from here. If they want to reward the users, it should be based on the number of merits achieved by a member irrespective of his current rank.

You get merit for your quality posts, but when you create your quality posts, unsure that your post will be noticed, when you your posts are noticed, nothing assure that you will be merited.

Wow, you gave this opinion just after making 3 posts here ? At least make 30-40 quality posts and then if you do not get merit, then you can say that it is difficult to get merits. In my opinion, it is not hard to become a member as it requires only 10 merits. Admin said that initially he wanted it to keep 1 merit for member level but then he thought that it would be too easy. Also, some members already became members from junior members with merits earned after the merit system and thus it is surely possible.

Really? I don't think so :). At least Merit system help preventing all shitposter can get to higher rank in the future :). For example, you're a oneline shitposter and you'll stuck forever at Member rank or maybe you can reach to Full Member rank if you improve your post quality or cheat Merit system. LOL. You can try but I think you already know what will happen with your account if you cheat this system :)

More aggressive approach to spammers but surely that would also come with some "problems", possibly. One of them would be how much can you demerit someone, would it just be the polar opposite of meriting or not? Also, someone with just 3 alt-accounts could possibly bombard one user and quite possibly lower them for a rank or two, depending on the circumstances.

But surely, posts like this one:

I really want to get Merit, but Merit is too hard to get.

should receive demerit, but if you ask me, one "demerit" button that would automatically deduct merit count by 1 would be just enough.

Post by: Danstan on March 25, 2018, 05:48:24 AM
People care so much for their rank,  but I guess my friend is right when he says rank also help you gain more stakes on signature campaign because after the Bounty END you will wait At least a month before you can join another signature again,  so I think having a big pays on the campaign is also obtain by having merit to rank, so is it okay to ask my friend to rate some of my post soon? It's like from range ofn1 to 10 rate my post and give me merit, will that be okay?


Title: Re: Merit [NEW]
Post by: The Pharmacist on March 25, 2018, 06:24:34 AM
It seems like the best course of action is to follow tman's guide
It absolutely is.  Unfortunately, in order to follow said course, one has to be able to read what TMAN wrote.  And therein lies the problem.  These fuckers didn't come here to read; they came here to post.  And if thwarted in this activity, they certainly are not going to stick around long enough for an English lesson.  

They know just enough to answer the commonly-asked questions that make up the substance of most threads in Bitcoin Discussion, Economics, & Speculation.  They can rearrange the words in these responses just enough to make it look like a new response--but that's like rearranging turds in a mountain of shit.  It's all repulsive stuff, and if they weren't paid for it, they wouldn't be spreading the manure.  

Edit:  Here's a random example.
Of course, Bitcoin can be a world currency. However, Bitcoin is not valid in all countries. But seeing the popularity of Bitcoin,it will be the world currency for a time.Only the bitcoin has been known in all the countries, which could not make any other coins.Everywhere they are Bitcoin,world Currency Will be.

Look at the threads in Reputation that deal with my feedbacks.  What would normally be someone laying out a logical case of inappropriate feedback turns into a ham-fisted murdering of the English language that sounds like dialogue from the first comic book appearance of Bizarro Superman--and this is good evidence that when these people try to write something that isn't an answer to "How I can earn btcz?" or "Bitcoin is life", they are lost.  They cannot muster enough English-language coherence to even state their case that they did not commit [Insert Bitcointalk Transgression Here] and hence the red trust I left is in error.

Sometimes I laugh; sometimes it's annoying.  When I hear someone say they're going to rage-quit BCT, I'm elated.  And eventually when I start seeing Jr. Members with 500 activity, I'll know we've arrived in the promised land because of the merit system.

It seems like the best course of action is to follow tman's guide
It absolutely is.  Unfortunately, in order to follow said course, one has to be able to read what TMAN wrote.  And therein lies the problem.  These fuckers didn't come here to read; they came here to post.  And if thwarted in this activity, they certainly are not going to stick around long enough for an English lesson.  

They know just enough to answer the commonly-asked questions that make up the substance of most threads in Bitcoin Discussion, Economics, & Speculation.  They can rearrange the words in these responses just enough to make it look like a new response--but that's like rearranging turds in a mountain of shit.  It's all repulsive stuff, and if they weren't paid for it, they wouldn't be spreading the manure.  

Edit:  Here's a random example.
Of course, Bitcoin can be a world currency. However, Bitcoin is not valid in all countries. But seeing the popularity of Bitcoin,it will be the world currency for a time.Only the bitcoin has been known in all the countries, which could not make any other coins.Everywhere they are Bitcoin,world Currency Will be.

Wow, I did not realize what you point out above as I spend almost all my time safely tucked away in the Collectibles section and do not visit Economics, Bitcoin Discussion etc....I have heard about the spam problem but fortunately it has not (for the most part) invaded the small area of the forum I frequent.

So users like Rupok, who you quote, make money posting jibberish like that?  Who pays them and aren't they to blame?

More people unhappy for the merits system, Because many Members stuck their rank because of merits required, but many Members are happy about it for the reason to prevent low post and spamming so they use merits system,but even if you make a quality post you cannot avoid having your post unnoticed because there so many post in the thread,but don't lose hope because someday they will be notice the post we made and we're not the only one like this because many also Members seek to have merits to be able to rank up,that why start now and make your own post.

Proof that merit system doesnt prevent spamming. Everyone now will be making new thread duplicates, copy-pasting articles, hoping to get some merit off of it.
Later on this poster will gain negative trust or will be banned because of copy pasting. So don't wasting your time to argue with the OP. Because highrankers already notice this kind of post. Lets just help to report this kind of spammer.
