How does the merit system work? I have tried to search the whole forum and got this thread. Thanks very much  Kiss Kiss Kiss

Read my opening post. That's how the merit system works around here.  Cheesy

I just came across this post and was amazed that this guy actually got 8 merits (!?!?!) (more than I have right now trying to do good quality posts & help people out - isn't this the whole point of a forum/community?).

This is a perfect example of what I was saying earlier about shit posters that are sr/hero/legendary members and they now have a "privileged" status compared to other newer members that want to help out and try to create good quality/positive posts. The interesting thing, that I did not think can happen, is that they also receive merits for it.... Come on...

Is this the path we want to take?

You ain't seen nothing yet. Some forum gang member got 100+ merit only for calling someone a butthurt idiot.

And yes; that's the chosen path the forum is walking. Unfortunately.

The trouble with your "ethical mature" system is that you're an immature whiny demagogue yourself so that kinda makes your idealistic scheme DOA. But by all means - let us know once your new ideal forum is up and running. I would love to see who those mature members are.

It would definately not be you. Even objective members rebuked you for your childish posts.  Cheesy

I like to think of myself as a honest and ethically mature member.  Do you have examples where I haven't been?

I have plenty of examples where members like Lauda, actmyname and The Pharmacist haven't been.

When you decide to have a moderating system based on subjective judgements (as is the case with the trust and merit systems) then you need to give the power in the hands of ethical mature members. When there are ethical immature members, as the ones mentioned above, you should either withhold them power or establish objective rules to which the moderators too must comply. Otherwise you'll get the pirate hole this forum is at present.

Of course, this has been tried many times in the past already.  If you guys are going to openly invite scammers and spammers, it will be interesting to see how your forum handles them.

It is not me, but if I were to handle scammers at a forum it would be from clear set rules, honestly and objectively moderated by ethically mature moderators. Not though terror by a hypocritical low-ethics gang who scam themselves the hell out of the forum.

Not giving everybody the same opportunities will lead to people moving on to other forums

Correct. A Bitcointalk fork is being prepared already by a group of members who are fed up with the Lauda gang.

It's not funny!  Angry  Cry

Thanks for the merit BTW Smiley

Yes, I agree but the thing is, you will not receive any merit points for your direct posts. I have only received merits when posting in this sub forum (when people have looked at my posts). Even the more established members that can make a difference (like mods, admins etc.) received very low amounts of merit points.

I have done well researched posts or helped out other guys that had issues with mining for example. None of them sent me any merit although the information was used or they thanked me (it seems like it's easier for them to thank me than send me merit Smiley ).
Using this merit approach will not work for good faith users that post good quality and are not spammers. That's why I think this system isn't working.

I think I will make the remaining 3 merits to get to member status in the next months (hopefully) but will definitely be stuck here for many years until I reach 100.

My opinion is that this system is just a measure of limiting users from acquiring rank to give the current established members more rights than the other folks.
I even named it a "Trumpish" system in another thread because it's kinda like what's happening in the US right now, immigration wise. Smiley

Try getting 100 merits for reaching a Full Membership ranking.  Cheesy You'll have to be some kind of Einstein or Mother Theresa to gain such amounts of merits. Or somehow get sucked up into the group of scam moderators. That probably works best around here.  Roll Eyes

But it's no use complaining about it. Because the merit system was not designed to merit posts in the first place but rather to keep members from reaching higher rankings. And for that it is doing it's job wonderfully.
69  Other / Meta / Re: Merit & new rank requirements on: February 06, 2018, 10:53:48 AM
Why not? Where's the logic in this? Higher ranked accounts don't even need the merit so it's largely useless other than a show of appreciation of their post, which is how merit should be used, but people who give a shit about the forum would rather see good quality lower-ranked posters be able to move up the ranks by making constructive posts so most will be more than happy to dish out merit freely providing people area actually contributing something worthwhile.

The point he's making is the following. When you are a Hero Member participating in a signature campaign you'll get more rewards when your fellow campaigners are of low ranking due to the staking system. That's an incentive to not distribute merit points to lower ranking members.

I think this is the best the decision you could take by removing abuser in your trust list, and i think you should ask Blazed to stop recruiting racist and abuser in his trust list. Noone of those  abusers fignt realy againts spammers all they want its money,power to destroy user accounts. Its time to leave the trust system in the hand of moderators instead of all those bad guys.

That's right. There's a growing resistance against these trust system abusers as more and more members are experiencing and seeing their unjust, devious actions. This forum needs only one good, fair alternative and we'll see a massive migration to that other forum.

Oh my God. You've been tagged because of this? Really I feel sorry for you bro. Took a lot to get to Legendary and now your account is ruined because of merit shit...

Just befor the merit system was launched I saw a member expressing his enthousiasm about reaching the Sr Member status very soon. It was a normal post done within a thread that handled the ranking system. actmyname tagged him red for that post. The latter's only motive was to hurt the member. Those mobsters really are a menace to many honest and fair users and to the forum as a whole.

Trading accounts = red trust...

Nothing to see here move along folks

False moderation = red trust...

To see for all who open their eyes.

Then Neg Lauda and move on...

Once given the power I will.
73  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Lauda/aTriz possible alts of each other [Merit Abuse] on: January 31, 2018, 03:23:20 PM
Because these guys have integrity, something that cannot be said about you.. neither of these guys would sell merit so this thread is a non starter. People who know aTriz and Lauda will stand up for them as they are above such actions, I am sure the same would happen for me if you made a similar thread actually the same for anyone who is posting in Lauda or aTriz's defence.

Look up the meaning of integrity, then look at your own actions..

Peace out

I suggest you do the same and then start acting as it is defined. Tagging members against proof with red trust or tagging members for actions that the tagger is performing himself is not integrity but hypocricy and scam.

Lauda deserves a lot more than 50 merits imo, I'm not bothered to go through every post and merit them, so I just picked one.

That is not even the point. The point is that others are tagged red for the above but not Lauda and you!
76  Economy / Reputation / Re: Don't trust LAUDA on: January 31, 2018, 09:15:41 AM
You are just saying to don't trust Lauda. But I didn't find the right logic on it. They are making forum as a trusted platform and a good source. Always green trust on such folks. Forum needs more folks like him/her.

I guess you need the discovery of a false red tag at login to realize that the truth is quite different.
77  Other / Meta / Re: Merit & new rank requirements on: January 30, 2018, 07:58:09 PM
Im newbie for all my past life.

And current life Roll Eyes

And with the merit system future life as well...

When will OP stop beating a dead horse?
At least create a single thread to express your concern. Its not like a single thread will remain unnoticed here.

The amount of threads created in this board against aTriz and Lauda is just ridiculous.

In what sense are you comparing aTriz and Lauda to a dead horse?

And that the amount of threads created in this board against aTriz and Lauda is very high only is a sign of their abuse of power. It is the latter which is 'ridiculous' not that people react to it.

Quote
Then why doesn't theymos remove Lauda from DT by excluding them from his trust list?

My sad conclusion has to be that the forum owner himself has to be corrupt too, for otherwise he would not maintain the situation as it is.

Are you telling me negative feedback should only be given to people who break the rules? Then in that case, spamming would warrant negative feedback and scams wouldn't. If we're going by that logic. Roll Eyes

That's the evil thing about the forum governance. Laws and punishment are detached from each other. It's like the cop who's given the fiat to shoot whoever he likes, innocent or not.

"Because you are doing it, I can do it as well" is not a good argument.

So shall we all stop doing it then? 'I can be bad but you cannot' is not a good argument either.
79  Other / Meta / Re: How Do You Feel About This New System?? on: January 30, 2018, 09:50:32 AM
I get that everyone likes/dislikes the system for whatever reason. I also understand that some of you have known each other a while and have had interactions resulting in emotions.

What I don't get is (supposedly) intelligent people acting like they're in a schoolyard.

<Insert name> is a(n) <insert expletive/accusation>.

Sheesh.

And those kids have been given the responsibility of trust and merit moderation. Fire in the hands of toddlers.

But I do think you are a special kind of cunt. One who probably hangs with all other account farmers, shitposters and general wastes of HDD space.

You are moaning and moaning about Lauda/DT/Merits... why? Probably because you have 10 accounts and are earning the average monthly wage in a week where you are from... but now that is changing.. you don't like it so you get all cunty and pissy and attack everything. So enjoy your posts as you are going on ignore again cunty

And there's plenty more filth at the source of that choice of words...
