Jr Members can no longer have signature links.

Can you please confirm theymos whether the removal of signature links for Jr members only applies to all current and future members whom have not yet reached junior member rank? Or are current junior members with signatures having also having this privilege revoked? Cheers
It all applies to both current and future junior member account till you rank up with your activities count and merit. Check the link Lutpin posted above you.

You can be a junior member without having any merit point but in order to have a member rank you need at least 10 merit in addition to the required number of posts.

I see there is a new metric added for every user called "Merit" do we have any clear information about that?
Thanks in advance!

Hi, Silly question - how do i get my profile link? Thanks.

If you use the profile link at the top of the page and then go to show posts you'll get a link like this:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=143168;sa=showPosts

but with your account number not mine. Trim that URL after the number and that's your profile link.

whether the amount of activity and merit also interrelated with the rise in rankings, when the number of activities has been reached then the amount of merit is not achieved whether it can rise the ranking.

This whole thread is a perfect example of why activity and post count should be restricted even further.  Everyone talking in circles, asking the same questions, and posting garbage.  The Signature campaigns have gotten out of control.  Some of them are very lucrative but at what cost?  Every thread is full of broken english, generic posts, and questions.  It greats frustrating having to sift through so much noise.  I've been a member of many forums over the years and never have seen people put so much stock into their "forum ranking."  In most forums a high ranking means you have contributed a lot.  Here it is almost meaningless.  Without censorship I don't know how to combat this, but it seems like this should be a ban-able offense.  Looking at the post activity of some members and its obvious that out of hundreds of posts they have contributed zero knowledge or insight, or have even asked a relevant question.  9 times out of 10, when you see a low quality post, there is always a signature advertising something underneath it.

Jr Members can no longer have signature links.

Hello!
Due to the current number of bounty campaigns around this question comes to my mind.
Does this have an impact on a current signature campaign or should it has no effect on their current count?

When I registered here I had no ideas about forum status, member rank, forum signatures etc.
I came here mainly to read the forum, obviously not to contribute high quality content from day one. That's what newbies do and it should be OK.

After some reading in this forum, regardless the sub category, every newbie here gets the impression that forum rank is the most important issue and topic here.
Of course now after a lot of reading I see the reason for that. I also get that all bounty and airdrop campaigns focus on membership rank and free stuff is just very attractive. Ironically for these campaigns that is an easy measure to get rid of all the newbies who are just here for free stuff and the forum itself has to deal with all the disadvantages of newbies posting for no reason just to increase their forum rank.

The thing is that I have seen situations like that in connection with other communities and seen that limitations and increased requirements often make the problem even bigger. Unfortunately I don't have a solution for this, but maybe admins and the old and trusted forum population should find a new approach to keep this forum high quality, as rewarding the quantity of posts will drag down quality.

The number of posts isn't really what enables a rank up but Number of Activities.

Yes! The activity was a major determining factor for ranking up before Thymos brought in the Merit stuff today.

I don't like the low quality posts any more then anyone else, but it gets into a grey area when the forums start getting micromanaged. Like at what point do you have to be afraid that someone thinks your posting just to post? Do we have to be scared to quote something someone said and reply "Hell yeah!" under it  because someone thinks we're trying to raise our post count? I've been coming to this forum for the last couple years, but I never registered until December. Actually the way I used it before that was to type questions about mining in Google, then when a result came up from BTT I'd choose the "see more from bitcointalk.org" link and go from there researching whatever problem I had. I was motivated to finally get off my ass and make a real account here as the result of a signature campaign, but I would say that's defintely not a bad thing. I know what I'm talking about at this point, (you probably didn't want to hear much from me for awhile when I was still learning anyways), I like to think I have meaningful contributions to discussions, and I've had some great conversations with some great people since then. With a forum related to something as international as Bitcoin there's going to be alot more people who don't speak great english too, and I feel bad for them also, as many of them probably have no ulterior motives for the less then clear and concise posts other then that they really don't know any better. I am glad that the forum isn't a free for all, and that there is accountability, and I do appreciate that alot of people are working really hard to try and make it better. It's definetly a double edged sword, I just always like to give people the benefit of doubt, and I believe that most people are good, they just usually don't have a chance to be or they have been burned so many times they become jaded. But goodness is like a root. A little water and you got some fresh sprouts.

Thanks. Reported this piece of spammer shit.
For the quoted text, theymos mentioned the word "signature" not text.
In other words anyone can put a hyperlink in his post's text but junior members and lower ranks couldn't put this hyperlink in their signature space.

You just got one merit Cheesy

I've been here for rather a long time. And, like you, I lurked even longer than that. Despite real life experience, gmaxwell even called me the "voice of reason" at one point. Something I'd never been accused of prior to Bitcointalk Cheesy

But I digress. Guys like you, and I, were far more common about 4 years ago. Then BTC and other Cryptos got to the edges of the mainstream, and we have gotten a steady stream of people (young, I'm guessing), who, for lack of a better way to put it, are a waste of carbon. I'm not talking about a new guy with something to say who just does it wrong, I'm talking about people trying to raise their post count simply by, well, posting. Nothing. Sometimes literally an asterisk.

At the same time, the moderators were implementing rules that seemed to target actual content instead of the vague idiocy. I know from talking to them that this was not actually the intent, but it came off that way.

I think this system makes more sense, to be honest. Not sure how it'll play out, here in Mos Eisely, but it's certainly an improvement!

So, if I've understood correctly I need to post 30 times or post once in a 2-week period over 3 separate 2-week periods to be able to send one pm to one person. Lmao.

Whats so funny? I like that adjustment. So you can't easily create an account and spam the members..

Thank you at the thread-maker Wink. I like that system and now I know how it works.

It makes a hell of a lot of sense, I was getting WAY too many newbie accounts messaging me with their super gangsta ICO which will make me millions.

It made me miss the emails I used to get from the Nigerian Prince who wanted me to inherit his money
LMAO with the super gangsta ICO and the Nigerian Prince. Though seriously, there are still a lot of newbies who just want to learn and earn. But those spammers really just taint the newbies name huh? I am not against the merit system, i just hate the fact that as a newbie i may be generalized as a spammer and won't get any merits in the future.

As far as I'm concerned, you're on the right track. (No, I'm not a merit source). It seems to me that there are a lot of 'newbie' accounts that were made just to sell something, or gain enough rank to sell the account to a broker. Which I don't get, anyway, but that's me. I've been here, between lurking and actual registration till now, what, 7 years? A long time. I was gone for a while, due to life being as it can be, but still, I spent a LOT of hours on this forum, built up my account the old fashioned way on fora, actually posting and interacting. Rank never mattered to me. In my absence, I have become "Legendary", which I still don't know what it means Cheesy But I kind of like being a legend, even if only on a forum. Nevertheless, having something to say, rather than a few (thousand) hit and run posts is likely to get you more notice, and hopefully merit.
