1  Other / Meta / Re: When everybody says “Merit” I'm asking: What about Activity??? on: September 23, 2018, 11:53:55 PM
It has been discussed before that activity shouldn't be counted in certain sections. Certainly, the bounty section. I would probably agree. But, it wouldn't help with the spam problem. People posting there have no issues with not receiving any activity from posting there. They are only there to collect their money. Activity isn't really the limiting factor anymore when it comes to ranking up. In almost all cases the merit requirement will be the hardest to fulfill. There's only a select few which would find activity a limiting factor rather than merit.

I was kind of watching whilst doing other things. They seemed to dominate the first 10 minutes or so, and threatened a few times. But, then West ham started to hit a few counters, and it eventually turned to a pretty boring game where no team had any real opportunities to score.

Nah - the forum needs "H.I." - Human intelligence. Just people that post because they want to communicate intelligently with other human beings. Without meeting signature quotas and without regurgitating things that have been said hundreds of times before. To get rid of the shit-posters .... and they are working on it.

Unfortunately, there's not a lot of this going around. I think we'll see a great decline on the bounty spam, but we'll still see posts like this where people are posting topics in an attempt to get merit. Newbies have already identified that you'll likely get more merit if you are the op of the post, and this is exactly the reason why the forum has been subject to mass openings of new threads since the introduction of the merit requirement for jr members.

I find really annoying people who constantly bash newbies without giving any real solution to the problem they complain about.

I don't seem to get the utility of this. How would a derogatory rank name help in any matter?

There's been several solutions proposed the last few months/year. One of the solutions is the 1 merit requirement which recently got implemented. I can understand why people are getting frustrated with all the spam. These people who own hundreds of accounts to claim bounties are raping the forum of quality content, and flooding it with their spam.

Yeah, you get a limited number of automatic picks if you forget to makes your own. I guess they have all ran out. Not great since we are only on week 6.

It seems I keep overestimating United. In my head they are still this great team that beats everyone and is a guaranteed 2nd place at worst. That's just not the case at the moment.

Honestly, the way they are going. They aren't even going to get top 4. They look clueless in areas. Pogba had a decent assist, and Fred finished nicely. But, they are just so timid in attack. Lukaku just isn't a top 6 striker in my opinion.

Ooh damn I didn't hear about this story. I just know a few days ago he opened up about it, and that he had depression. Honestly, my knowledge of it is limited to the headline, because I didn't read it due to data issues, and haven't really been bothered to look at it as its likely just the newspapers spinning a headline off. I'll have to look into it later on.

Fulham did well I think. They were on the ropes for much of the first half, and only really threatened on the counter. I think Watford will be the more of disappointed with the result than Fulham.

Wasn't Zaha from United before? I didn't recognize him from his face and I looked him up and he recently complained about being alone in his time at Manchester and was even loaned out after Ferguson bought him. Didn't even realize until I read him up now that he's no longer an England player (how is it possible people switch nationalities like that??).

He reminds me a little bit about guys like Jermain Defoe. Always reliable to score, and always gets bought by teams like Crystal Palace. I thought Benteke would also be that type of striker but good luck to him. I have a small heart for those type of underrated goal scorers.

Yeah, he recently complained that the Man Utd board didn't give him sufficient support during his transfer to CP. Zaha is pretty damn good, and I stand by my previous statement he'll likely find his way into a top 6 team. He's always got the unexpected in him, and I feel he's not getting the support he needs in the Crystal Palace squad. Fortunately, their style of play suits him down to the ground though. He's very effective counter attacking.

Watford have had a really impressive start to the season. They are looking pretty good against Fulham, but they do look vulnerable on the counter attack. I'm thinking a score like 1-3 to Watford looking at this game.

Agreed with your other reason. But the 2nd one, which I have quoted, isn't a good solution, IMO. I have received 1 merit. Someone posted an article in Beginners and Help, I had read the exact one from a website. Then I shared the link by replying to his article and also mentioned that he had copied the article. SOmeone gave me a merit. Later, the thread was deleted for plagiarism.
I don't know whether my reply would deserve a merit or not. But what if someone gave merit in a post which really deserve merit and the thread got deleted somehow. Willn't it take down the real reward? I think it will not motivate people.

At the end of the day, quality posts can be made, and then deleted after. I say automatically removing the merit once its been deleted isn't exactly the best approach. What I would say is, if the post is deleted directly by a moderator or whatever then it should be removed. However, if you made a reply in a thread which was removed it shouldn't. So, only if directly removed should merit be removed too. Self moderated threads shouldn't count.

At least that's my point of view on the situation.
12  Other / Meta / Re: why shitposts? on: September 21, 2018, 05:25:49 PM
Guess every Minute maybe 10 new Users or (bots) register here , or more !

From 100 users i think 10 joining for search about Coin or crypto related things !

From the last 90 there 40 Bounty Hunters and Shit Spam posters and the rest are Bot spamming Accounts !

If you look on the post history of the most newbies you can see it !

The whole thing are good explaind from @The Pharmacist  !

I know a few weeks back when there wasn't restrictions on deleting your own comments the bot accounts were being created at mass just to post a comment, and then delete it. It was really annoying to actually report.
13  Other / Meta / Re: Can I hide my email addresses? on: September 21, 2018, 05:22:35 PM
Mine is hidden too. I can see it's hidden if I open my profile in other browser.

How do I make sure it's hidden? Where is the settings?

Bare in mind that admins will always be able to see your email address even if its hidden. Otherwise, bL4nkcode advise will hide it from all other members on the forum.

Introducing deMerit sources would be a good decision to remove some Merits given to Newbies by mistake, like this one:

Another idea could be if we increase the rank requirements for Jr. Members later again. Most of them who received 1 Merit now will continue shitposting, not all of them, but most of them. If we wait a few weeks now and then change the rules again that it's necessary to earn 2 Merits to get a Jr. Member we can check their new comments after the account got his 1 Merit. If he didn't change his posting behaviour and continued his shitposting, this second Merit he needs now to be Jr. Member will be refused.

This can be another measure to prevent mistakenly given Merits.

Demerit has its usages, and I'm not saying it's a terrible idea. However, just because a demerit source disagrees with a merit source or someone who rewarded the merit, doesn't mean that they should have the ruling over them. Mistakes happen, and they could perhaps be removed by a global moderator or something, but I guess they have enough on their hands. I don't think giving someone the right to just demerit when they disagree with something is the best solution. Everyone has different opinions on quality of posts from users.
15  Other / Meta / Re: LoyceV's deMerit source application on: September 20, 2018, 05:47:19 PM
I get your idea, but this could be abused easily/misused in many ways. Increasing merit requirement for some ranks, limiting signature features for few ranks and permanent ban for obvious merit abuse are far better and should be easier to be implemented.
Report button on merit page and hidden list of trusted member (which only can be seen by moderator/admin when see reports) should be better.

Merit abuse is pretty damn hard to spot, unless its blatantly obvious. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll be finding that many abusers with the low requirement of 1 merit. If we had a 5 merit requirement for Jr member then it would of been easier to identify abusers I think.
16  Other / Meta / Re: recovering my friend account on: September 20, 2018, 04:37:10 PM
i have read it but it kinda hard for me and his account is not hacked just need to be unlocked we have all access to this account including email
Doesn't matter. It might be hard for you, but there's several video tutorials out there that you could follow. The information is out there you just need to find it, and pay attention. It doesn't matter if the account is just locked. Proof of ownership is still required.
17  Other / Meta / Re: LoyceV's deMerit source application on: September 20, 2018, 04:35:12 PM
Not really required, IMO.

Jr. Members can't do much. People are focusing a little too much on a ranking system, and concentrating their time on something that's not very important. If I were you, I'd rather go play football or you know...go get yourself wasted.

I'm against the idea of demerits to be honest. However, the current problem we have is newbies actually making an effort to make 1 good quality post or a few until they receive their merit, and they'll then go back to spamming their bounty shit, and we'll be no better off. I would of personally preferred the merit requirement to be higher.
18  Other / Meta / Re: Hate against bounty hunters!!! on: September 20, 2018, 04:33:14 PM
I think you create this post in the hope to get merit. I'm have neutral relationship to bounty because it's a part of this forum.

Like almost all newbies right now. It's a pain that you have to actually look at their post history now, because they might just be trying to post 1 good quality post, get their merit, and go back to their shitty spamming ways as soon as they can get enrolled on a campaign.
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Cloudbet's English Premier League Football Pool Discussion Thread on: September 20, 2018, 04:28:49 PM
Not 100% related. But, considering I've decided not to jump into the champions league pool, and I'm keeping a very close eye on Liverpool this season, because I think they might go, and win the league finally...they made PSG look like school boys at times. Very impressive. They aren't even at top gear, and some of their star players aren't even sharp yet. Yet they are still getting results. Think they could do it?

I've not won a single yellow cap Sad

Fuck. I totally forgot about these things. I'm actually going to sit down like I intended on doing weeks ago, and make my predictions up until the beginning of November just so I don't miss anymore.
20  Other / Meta / Re: Signature Probation: Newbie-friendly alternative to Jr. Member Merit requirement on: September 18, 2018, 10:21:17 PM
I don't see the big deal, honestly. 1 merit is so easy to come by that any decent poster will eventually get it, and they can carry on earning their monies. The only problem I see is when people have a hundred alternate newbie accounts instead of Jr members now, and they've stopped earning, and can't put bread on the table. At least it stops the spam though. Maybe, this will demotivate others from creating a hundred accounts just to earn on bounties.
