Do I not have 2 coins because I don't have 10 merit? 

That is correct. Read the Merit & new rank requirements thread for more details.

If so, how do I get merit?  Thank you.

If you make a post that someone thinks deserves Merit they'll give it to you. Have a search of this board and you'll find hundreds of post discussing that and you'll find many different opinions on how to get Merit. I would say forget about Merit and just use the forum to learn about and discuss Bitcoin and Merit will come to you.

Atleast jr. member to show the images when you post. Your account is 1 activity away to rank up.
On the other hand, if you want or need it suddenly, there's an option to upgrade your account into a copper member by paying a small fee. See full details > Newbies can now pay a small fee to enable images

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.

Rank
Description
Tag
Brand New:0 posts, gets 1 gold coin under his name.
Newbie:(none), gets 1 gold coin under his name.
Jr. Member:Activity: 30, gets 1 gold coin under his name.
Member:Activity: 60, gets 2 gold coins under his name.
Full Member:Activity: 120, gets 3 gold coins under his name.
Sr. Member:Activity: 240, gets 4 gold coins under his name.
Hero Member:Activity: 480, gets 5 gold coins under his name.
Legendary:Activity: the Legendary membergroup has no universal activity requirement.
You are guaranteed to become Legendary somewhere between 775 and 1030 activity,
but the exact point in this range at which you become Legendary is random per user.
Gets 5 gold coins under his name of which the last is half dark blue.

Sub-Rank
Description
Tag
Donator:Manually applied by administration after 10 BTC donation, and gets 5 gold coins under his name
of which the last is half green. 5 coins are shown regardless of post count when user is a Donator.
VIP:Manually applied by administration after 50 BTC donation, and gets 5 gold coins under his name
of which the last is half purple. 5 coins are shown regardless of post count when user is a VIP.

Staff Rank
Description
Tag
Staff:Shown when moderators (see next point) post outside of the sections that they moderate.
The tags under their usernames are dependent on their post group.
variable
Moderator:Shown when moderators of specific sections post within those sections.
Gets 5 gold coins, of which the last is shown as half faded-out green.
Global Moderator:Applied to Staff that have moderation privileges in all boards.
Gets 5 gold coins, of which the last is half teal colored.
Administrator:Has all available permissions and can appoint moderators and perform other administrative tasks.
Gets 5 gold coins, of which the last is shown half red regardless of post count.
Founder:Reserved for Satoshi, gets 5 platinum coins under his name.

The way activity is calculated:
The activity number is determined in this way:
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:

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.
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.
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.


Finally, found what I was looking for. I have a question regarding the rankings table at the top. Its says that Full Member rankings are from 120 activity. I am currently sitting on 175 activity but I am still ranked Member. Can you tell me if this ranking table is outdated? I can't wait to get some full color in my signatures. I have been working really hard since joining Bitcointalk for that one perk. The rest will be a bonus Grin

You could have quoted only the table you are referring to ... Quoting the whole first post just clutters up the thread and makes it difficult to read (at least for me). So, that first post begins with:

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.

So, in addition to Activity, you now need Merit to rank up. To become a Full Member you need 100 merit points.

Yes, this is one of the options to simply wait.
The other option was posted by jhenfelipe few posts above :

This is because of the merit system you are a full member but you don't know about merit system?

Read this whole thread here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2818350.0

According to merit system, you need to earn almost 250 merit to be able to rank up your account to Sr. member.

Hello,
I am still confusing about followings regarding merit system and activities

    1)whether The person who posting average one post per day and the person who posts more than one real good quality posts per day are considered as
       equally when calculating activities?
    2)Do we can get merit points by posting average quality posts?
    3)Is there any system to determine whether the posts are quality or not?(because its dependent by person to person)
    4)How can gain more activity points and merits?

Thank you! wanted to give your message points merit, but could not do it. Why?
You are right, I did not even go into this merit system after its creation.

Because you don't have any merits left to give I suppose. When you want to send a merit, you'll have the answer :

"You have received a total of XXX 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."

Read a little about the system merit. It seemed to me not working. Because even good useful posts will be underestimated. This property of man does not change. A person will rather react if they have deceived him, and if they have written a useful post, he will consider it in the order of things and will not react. A maximum of 5% of people will behave differently from this rule. Look at how many participants have a negative reputation and where are the participants with a positive reputation?
We need not only a qualitative and subjective-dependent way to get merit. We need a quantitative (objective) method, albeit slower. For example, a forum member exhibiting established activity and not reducing reputation should receive merit points. For example, 5 points per month.
