Title: [Suggestion] Merit for reported posts
Post by: libert19 on December 03, 2018, 04:41:48 AM
Just an idea crossed my mind moments ago. How about if users get rewarded with merit for reporting posts?

It will keep forum cleaner and will be bit easier for users to rank up.

What you think?

So I can just make a bunch of alts, make a few shitposts with each of them, report them, and become legendary that easily?

This.

This shit idea has been suggested multiple times before and it's not going to happen.

Considering that merits can only be giving to posts which are quality it would be a challenge to do what you are proposing, but again, it can be given out as the holder deems fit
If you go through this reporter statistics thread, quite a number of members got merited for posting their current stats;

Merit awarding is unregulated and hence it would be impossible to stipulate that merits would be awarded for fulfilling a certain obligation.
If your current numbers are good, and you are doing your bit to clean up the forum, you can reply on those threads, but there is no guarantee that it would get merited.

The moderators would be the ones to feel the most impact of the OP suggestion.

They would be getting constant report on a post some might to even be reasonable claim they will just be another avenue for merit hunters to try there luck thereby abusing the forum.

Yes that is true i agree but we still need more ways to gain merits or like 100 merit sources more

Aw sorry. My suggestion isn't unique at all.

Thank you for this :)

That's the purpose actually.

I agree.
