Dear Sir !
I have more than 185 Posts and 70 activity, but i still a Jr. Member. I thought 60 activity could be a member. Please tell me what should i do !
Thank you !

You could read the OP, perhaps, which has a link within one of the first few sentences informing that for ranking up from jr member to member status 60 activity points and 10 merit points are required.  

So, in essence, you need to get 10 merit points for member status, and to move from member to full member, you will need to get 100 merits.


Edit:  Ah haaaaa!!!!!! OmegaStarScream beat me to answering this question by  2 minutes and 9 seconds, give or take 7.3 seconds clicking time.
Oh, I see ! Thank you !

A custom title is only for moderators and VIP members, where you basically need to donate 50 BTC which I doubt anyone is willing to do with the current price.

Lol, where have you been hiding to have not heard about the merit system yet? Go back and read the OP to this thread and right at the start of it you will find the link to the thread explaining it.

A custom title is only for moderators and VIP members, where you basically need to donate 50 BTC which I doubt anyone is willing to do with the current price.

Then why users who do not have the status of "moderator" or VIP, have the option "Custom Title" in the profile (for example, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=31288 or https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=41911), but many moderators on the forum do not have this option? For example, theymos (administrator) does not have this option in the profile.

In addition to what "MadGamer" stated, if you're a "well known person" within the community and ask nicely (with a valid reason) then you might get it as well (last person that got a custom title [through a request]).

but many moderators on the forum do not have this option? For example, theymos (administrator) does not have this option in the profile.
It isn't mandatory (just because someone has a certain position within the community).

Ranks

Update on 2/3/18: Merit points are now added
In addition to the activity points, merit points (click for more information) are required to advance your ranking.

All the main ranks that can be handed out to normal users are: Brand New, Newbie, Jr. Member, Member, Full Member, Sr. Member, Hero Member and Legendary.
In addition to the main rankings, there are also sub-rankings that can be applied, and those are: Donator, and VIP.
Finally, staff sub-rankings are as follows: Staff, Moderator, Global Moderator, Administrator, and Founder.

The way activity is calculated:

time = number of two-week periods in which you've posted since your registration
activity = min(time * 14, posts)

Activity is updated every hour.

To become a Donator or a VIP, send a PM to theymos to get a unique donation address.


Took the liberty to update it according to the new Activity & new member limits/groups.
Edited with proper number of coins.
malevolent - update: added info about the new rank, changes to the Staff rank tag, removed the deprecated "SCAMMER" sub-rank. Also included info about the posting limits.

Signature restrictions

There are restrictions on signatures, based on your activity/rank.


- Newbie: No styling (including links) allowed. Max 50 characters.
- Jr. Member: Max 150 characters.
- Member: Links allowed. Unlimited length.
- Full: Color allowed.
- Sr. Member: Size allowed
- Hero: Background color allowed

Badges

I added a system of badges to SMF a while ago, though only two are defined now. Here are the current badges:

https://bitcointalk.org/Themes/custom1/images/badges/expert.png Bitcoin expertDev&Tech only. People with this badge know enough about the Bitcoin network to reimplement something very like it from scratch. They are capable of intelligently discussing the Bitcoin network: current protocol, possible attacks, proposed changes, etc. Criteria: Recommendation by an existing Bitcoin expert or core dev and approval by a forum administrator.
https://bitcointalk.org/Themes/custom1/images/badges/qt.png Bitcoin-Qt core developer Dev&Tech only. These are the core developers of Satoshi's Bitcoin client. They are listed here. Core developers are among the top contributors to Bitcoin-Qt, and they are all bitcoin experts, though they don't also get that badge.
https://bitcointalk.org/Themes/custom1/images/badges/hacker.png The Glider(hacker symbol) Awarded for people who have responsibly disclosed forum security flaws.

A core dev does not "outrank" a bitcoin expert (or vice-versa), and it's possible for someone without a badge to contribute meaningfully to a discussion with experts and core devs.

Limits on posting

Code:
waittime = 360;
if(activity >= 15)
        waittime = (int)(90 - activity);
if(activity >= 60)
        waittime=(int)(34.7586 - (0.0793103 * activity));
if(activity >= 100)
        waittime = max((int)(14-(activity/50)), 4);


Limits on PMs
I've adjusted the limits to make spamming more difficult.

Activity   Min. seconds between post actions   Max PM recipients   PMs per hour
036035
1674530
3060560
6030560
1001210120
2001015120
300820120


Avatars
Full Member and up only.  
It must be no more than 120px wide, 80px tall, and 100 KiB in size. It must be a PNG, GIF, or JPEG image. It must be safe for work.


Shouldn't this topic also include the Merit system in the first post? For a long time I thought this was the ranking system until I googled what the Merits are realized that the system has changed? I would assume that I am not the only one wondering this so this could be quite helpful for new people here.

Edit. I just noticed that a very small and unnoticable one line link has been updated into the first post. I think this should be made bigger, and it would not hurt updating the whole first post to match with the merit table in the link since the current table in this topic is not correct/complete anymore...

Did you read the OP of this thread, and the link about merits that is in the first few sentences of OP? 

Currently, you have to have 100 merits to rank up from member to full member.  Then you will need to have 250 merits to rank up from full member to senior member.

What do you mean?  What is "new ranking scheme?"  Are you talking about merits?  If so read the OP and there is a link in the OP about merits - in the first couple of sentences.  That might be helpful to read that, unless you are asking about something else.

There seems to be a lot of confusion with this new system, apparently plenty of users spend most of their time in the bitcoin and alt discussions and haven't noticed the change. Also I don't see many users actually getting merrits despite a lot of good quality posts, of course not talking about myself here. Would be interesting to see some real data around that as it might only be my own perception. Any others who noticed that too?
