Asking for a friend...

That's another form of the "royal" we....   hahahahaha

Just note to all potential beggars.



I'm kind of thinking that in order for the merit source thingie ma jiggie to work with fewer glitches (especially in the begging arena), there may be a need for theymos to designate nearly one thousand members as merit sources..

Perhaps, theymos is working his way up to that 1000 number.. , but only slowly.. hahahahaha..   He started with 35 merit sources, and currently there are 77.. so could be more and more and more?  There is likely a decent amount of analysis going into how merits are being distributed. and whether the new system is going to allow for both ranking up and disincentivizing spam-like posts...

I have merit available to give. Does that make me a merit source?



If you are a merit source, then your merit page will come up like the below purple highlighted two paragraphs (though not really purple in real life) - noteably the difference in the second paragraph for merit sources:

>>>>>>>>You have received a total of XXXX merit. This is what determines your forum rank. You typically cannot lose this merit. You have XXX sendable merit (sMerit) which you can send to other people. There is no point in hoarding sMerit; keeping it yourself does not benefit you, and we reserve the right to decay unused sMerit in the future.

You are a merit source. The next XXX merit you spend will come from your source rather than your sMerit balance. Merit spent from your source will come back in 30 days. Unused source merit is wasted. It is not allowed for merit sources to sell their merit.
<<<<<<<<<<<<

As you may recall, the merit system activated on January 24, and therefore it was thought that if merit sources spent their smerits, then those smerits would start to replenish into the merit source on about February 23 - however, theymos stated that he had run into some glitch in the way that he had programmed the replenishment of merit source merits - in essence the script or the algorithm was screwed up.  

It appears that theymos fixed that merit source replenishment glitch on about March 5, and replenishment of merit source smerits began again around March 5.

This is an interesting place. When things are doing good we all share and enjoy the same feeling of success and richness (even if in different levels) and the opposite (like right now) also holds true.  Quite different than IRL friends, most of them being complete nocoiners. #justarandomthought

We should have a WO meetup some time. Maybe we can have an IRL celebration when BTC hits $100K haha.

Looks like a lot of hard work to me. I've still got loads left and I'm not a source. I'd be mortified and start cracking up under the strain if I had to get rid of several hundred per month. There aren't enough posts that arouse me.

Welcome to speculative investing. Have you seen the P:E ratios of stocks lately?
The point of this image is not only about the speculation but also to illustrate how much of bitcoin's value is dependent on government and bank cooperation.

This's interesting. We're no-where near the dotcom bubble yet in terms of market-cap:



But even if you consider bitcoin a bubble and think that it has reached a point where dotcom reached at all time high, and will burst like dot-com, then bitcoin has already lost 70% of its value from all time high, which was the total bubble burst of Nasdaq.
You're basing this only on the value of bitcoin core and are not including the value of all the altcoins, ICOs, blockchain tech stocks, futures markets, mining farms, etc.

Make it on Las Vegas during summer and I'm sold. Probably the only place in the world that could stand the assorted and extravagant bunch of us celebrating that awesome milestone in the most extreme and extravagant ways Smiley

Maybe we could even hire the Vodoo Lounge at the Rio (51st floor) just for our party.

Does anyone here have any experience of internet meets? I have a sneaking feeling they'd be fucking horrifying. And for some of the longstanding members there must be people with grudges against them out there, let alone blown opsec with wallet balances being linkable.

I'll send an actor. Or a cat.

Surely, there have been a lot of criticisms of whether the merit system has been implemented fairly and whether it is going to achieve various forum objectives including ranking up and encouraging quality participation (contributions). 

I doubt that there would be a desire for complete decentralization the forum or the merit system and you can tell by the limited number of starting merit sources, that theymos does not want a completely decentralized merit system because it seems to be aimed to solve some problems with trolls and spammers and perhaps even to lessen the importance of the trust system.

A little bird told me that many merit sources don't have to start out with hundreds. More like about 50 per month. That is very fortunate for them because wading through tons of shit just to find one diamond can grate on anyone's nerves. Also, from what I have been able to ascertain, Theymos will be reviewing the merit sources. Those who seem to be able to give out merit in both quantity and quality will be given more.

If you are a merit source, then your merit page will come up like the below purple highlighted two paragraphs (though not really purple in real life) - noteably the difference in the second paragraph for merit sources:

>>>>>>>>You have received a total of XXXX merit. This is what determines your forum rank. You typically cannot lose this merit. You have XXX sendable merit (sMerit) which you can send to other people. There is no point in hoarding sMerit; keeping it yourself does not benefit you, and we reserve the right to decay unused sMerit in the future.

You are a merit source. The next XXX merit you spend will come from your source rather than your sMerit balance. Merit spent from your source will come back in 30 days. Unused source merit is wasted. It is not allowed for merit sources to sell their merit.
<<<<<<<<<<<<

(I do have sMerit to give now, but you're a legend and a source, so it really feels like wasting the goods.)

After the merit system implemented, I did venture out there into the forum - outside of the WO thread, and it surely can be a scary place in which I bumped into a few things that maybe are not necessary to know regarding forum politics... - especially when it seems messy enough just to attempt to watch BTC price dynamics and the politics involved with BTC prices.. anyhow, there are a few things in the non-WO that I would not mind unseeing.

Surely personal discretion regarding how anyone spends their smerits, and merits are likely not only going to be used for ranking up since merits may end up displacing credibility aspects of the trust system in the future or establishing higher than Legendary ranks, perhaps?  Also, there can be some value with merits to identify relatively higher quality posts, too, perhaps?
