It's been 2.5 months since I opened this topic. It has been read by at least one Global Moderator and one Staff member (I know this because they left merit). All I want now, is a reply from theymos Smiley

Since you have so many glowing endorsements and merit is being thrown around within your application thread, I would have to assume that there is something else preventing them from accepting you. I remember theymos talking about looking for sources that are active in obscure board, and maybe the boards you are active in already have a disproportionate amount of merit flowing within them. I'm not really sure where you are primarily active, but I was thinking that this may be a restricting factor.

I've thought about this too. I mainly read boards that are interesting for me, and indeed, they don't seem to have a lack of merit around there.
Then again, without any official word, we can only guess. I know more people are waiting, and that list was only updated by theymos once, a few days after merit was introduced.

i gather that theymos approaches this new merit system in a fairly scientific manner.. and perhaps is only making a few changes to the number of source members, here and there, while having tools to attempt to monitor how the source members are distributing merits, too.

i recall that theymos made at least 3 and perhaps 4 additions to the number of source members, in batches.  it seems that on day 1, he designated 35 sources, and then about a week later he had increased the number of source members to 57 and then about a month later there were 80 source members. Just today, when I clicked on the merit sources hyperlink, i noticed that currently, there are 79 sources ...

So, perhaps another batch change to the source members, at some point, but might include both the addition and the subtraction of source members.

All the more reason to be replaced by @LoyceV!

I've been semi-afk for a few weeks now, and if I may be honest, I'm quite surprised that LoyceV is still not a merit source.

I'm curious to know why, as @bill gator has briefly touched upon above.

Either way, my endorsement and vouch for LoyceV still stands.

Consider this a bump Cheesy
He removed his sig too as promised (can't fine the exact post for reference but I am 100% sure about it). Guy is trying his best.
Latest update: Vod hasn't replied yet  Grin

That's because he got negative default trust resulting in getting booted from the campaign.

I'm not sure that resigning a position and then almost immediately reapplying for it shows the level of maturity required. I hope LoyceV's application is looked upon more favourably.

After reviewing the bounty post, it seems like you are right.
Accounts with a negative trust rating from DT members are not allowed to enroll. Receiving such a negative rating during a period will result in your removal without any payment.

Did you just insult LoyceV, comparing with digaran?  Grin (kidding)

I don't know why theymos is not accepting his/her application yet but sure s/he is one of the better candidate than some other existing merit sources, like the Japanese local board one (I forgot his/her name).

Beats me as well.


I keep checking back here thinking it will be an acceptance notice... probably not most sources tend not to announce it until they've been outed by the Data miners of the Forum.

I started thinking about it and is there a chance that Theymos already considers there to be enough sources in the areas that LoyceV frequents. I know this is not a mentioned metric of the requirements but it was just a thought.

Maybe LoyceV needs to act unstable, to fill the open slot Tongue

My trap worked? now we would know who is the real hypocrite, I said I would remove my signature whether my red tag stays or not. if they remove the tag and I immediately join a signature campaign, I would be a hypocrite. now I'm daring you after humble Joe, would you remove your signature and stay in this forum to discuss about improving it?

How about you finally keep my name off your tongue? Roll Eyes

I've thought about this too. I mainly read boards that are interesting for me, and indeed, they don't seem to have a lack of merit around there.

Start exploring boards that are of no interest to you, maybe you'll have a better shot at things. Search for the land deprived of merit and weave that board into your own circus of merit dancing monkeys.

Then again, without any official word, we can only guess. I know more people are waiting, and that list was only updated by theymos once, a few days after merit was introduced.

There should be a more systematic way to track the progress of your application. Simple notices of acknowledgement, review, refusal or delay in processing would be a pleasant implementation. I can see that this would add more work, but the current methods seem to be leaving threads like yours to accumulate thousands of views only to leave us all in suspense.

I'm wondering if there are any merit sources with a negative trust rating from a DT member. I haven't given myself the couple minutes to check, but did his negative trust or his merit resignation come first? I wasn't around for that day, or those couple of days, it's been a busy past month. I've missed a lot of the nuance and inner-workings of these issues.

Merit isn't my main reason for being here, so I'm only reading boards I value. I do read different boards sometimes, but usually end up getting people banned instead of meriting them.

Agreed. Like I said in the Legendary one day?-thread:
Theymos, making me wait is mean and cruel Tongue

If I assume all Global Moderators are also merit sources, then yes, it happens.

I was just poking fun. I doubt merit is anyone's main reason for being here. There may be one amusingly obsessed individual, but outside of them I wouldn't place that label upon you or anyone else. There's no reason to start reading boards that are without value, and this would actually give your more credibility as a source. Not forcing yourself into a section, simply because it is deprived of merit seems to be a quality rather than a negative.

Theymos, muh man, you know LoyceV holds it down; why you frontin'? (as the kids say)

I do read different boards sometimes, but usually end up getting people band instead of meriting them.

Maybe that's the problem. Merit and Bans are like the Good cop, Bad cop routine and staff sees you more as a "Bad cop" kind of user. You've gotta show them you've got a gentle touch when the situation calls for it.

Theymos, making me wait is mean and cruel Tongue

He's turned the application process into a twisted tantric outlet for himself, so it seems. Shocked

If I assume allGlobal Moderators are also merit sources, then yes, it happens.

Is that a fair assumption to make? Would the evidence or the announcements support the idea that they are all merit sources? Also, outside of Global moderators or other DT members, are there any examples of those with a negative DT trust rating that are sources?

The resignation came 4 days before the red paint was splattered.

Reasonably fair looking at the Most generous merit senders, all time page. The said Global Moderator is 14th with 445 Merit sent.

As for other sources with red paint, I don't know but I'd guess it would depend on the circumstances rather than be a set rule.
