I still don't get why rank is so important to y'all. Yeah, I get it with newbie jail, flood limits and such are annoying, but once you make it to a full member, it just looks cool. It's not an indicator of personal merit (see what I did there?) or anything like that.

I confess that I like having "legendary" next to my name. But does it actually say anything other than over the last half decade I've wasted a lot of time on here? Not really. It wasn't all a waste, either, but the point remains.

The 'merit' system, I kind of like. Jury is still out in my mind, but it gives a way to reward positively people who contribute. The actual ranks?

Before "legendary" was a thing, I saw Hero Members scamming left and right, and Newbies fresh to the forum being solid citizens, and everything in between. For some reason, new people then thought the ranking had something to do with trustworthiness. Seems they still do. It doesn't. Pirate@40, for instance, was highly trusted... and ran with the money. Hell, past performance doesn't even prove anything. Apparently friedcat turned rogue while I was gone. And he was cool as hell back when.

Basically, don't stress it. If you have something to say, say it. Flood control is easily fixed with Notepad and well thought out posts. Once you're out of the flood control zone, the rest is just time in service. Have fun, say your say, and above all, LEARN. I was ACTUALLY here long before my official join date, just too much out of my depth to open my mouth. Things have not gotten less complex since then. Listen, read, observe, THEN post. Good posts are more likely to earn merit.

You make some great points. Nobody likes to be a Newby or a Junior but after you get past that it really doesn't mean anything at all to most of us. I'd forgotten all about friedcat but the VIP Legendary TradeFortress always reminds me to take rank with a pinch of salt.
Like you I spent a good 7 or 8 months reading this forum before I plucked up the courage to signup and actually say something. I'm glad I did as engaging in debate especially with those you disagree with is the fastest way to learn.

As for the Merit system I'm liking it much more than I did when it was initially suggested. Its purpose isn't really about ranking up. It's about making things that are worth reading stand out. theymos posted in elsewhere that he is considering in future making it possible to hide all posts in a thread that haven't received any merit. At the moment people seem to be using it to judge outstanding content rather than just what was worthwhile reading, I'm hoping it will evolve that way. Then anyone who is really engaged in this forum and here for the right reasons is going to get ranked up anyway without even thinking about it.

It's important because the higher is your rank, the more money you get by joining shit ICO signature campaigns.

Most part of this forum isn't here to learn about Bitcoin. They only want money. I have seen a user who made 60 posts in 1 day to get 120 activity and try to become a Full Member. Then he made a post "what is this merit thing". I explained that it's a new system where you need to make high quality posts to rank up and his spam efforts wouldn't be enought for him to get a rank. Guess what? He didn't make a single new post since them and haven't log in yet.

You have rather hit the nail on the head there. Rank is mainly only important to those that see this as some sort of sweatshop where they can bang out endless shitposts and get a few dollars a week.

Activity updates at the time precised there but will not show immediately, you have to wait approx 1 hour or + to see it in your profile

Some coins require you to be a jr. member on bitcointalk to be involved in their airdrops and bounties.
Being a junior member is a matter of time /3 periods. But being a member requires 10 merits which is a challenge.
Newbies joining only for coins will not help them so much since they will stuck in junior member forever or be banned for unsubstantial posts..

Have you been hiding under a rock for the last week? https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2818350.0

Edit: Sorry that was a bit harsh. I just checked your post history and it seems you were not active last week. Even so, if you check the Meta board it is absolutely chock full of threads about it.

You start by finding your way around the forum. On this board Meta you'll find threads explaining the Merit system. Then when you have read that read more threads and learn things. Interact by asking questions that haven't already been asked thousands of times before. Then people will start to Merit your posts and will be able to rank up.

Yes, because you are too lazy to read the posts above you and you didn't pay attention to the Merit thing in your profile or under your name!
Read here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2818350.0, i won't explain since it is obvious.

Thanks for posting the link. I've had '(and am still having) a crazy week at work this week, so haven't been able to spend even 5 minutes on the forum.. Went in for the quick solution. Many thanks either way Smiley

now there is a merit system, can jr member rank up to member although there is no merit, because for beginners like me it is very difficult to get merit, and have to fight hard to get it.

Thank you

I looked at some of your recent post history, and yeah, if you are posting in crappy threads (bounty, whatever the fuck that is), then it could be more difficult to receive merits.

The new merit system is described in the OP of the below linked thread... .which OP pretty much states that you need 10 merits to rank up from jr member to member status.

Looks like you already meet the activity requirements, you just need to get 10 merits.
