I've noticed that i now all of a sudden have a "Merit" score of 500. What is this going to be for?

Does this have anything to do with the new proposals to combat spam?

EDIT: SEE https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2818350.0



Edit: I also discovered that there is now a "Patrol" link which you can choose to enable under Forum Profile Information.

I have just discovered the same myself and I was about to put  the same question. Did anyone find a post where this new feature is explained?

i don't think there's a thread explaining it yet. not sure if it's fully implemented either. it seems like our current merit rankings correspond with our activity rankings (legendary, hero, and so on).

this is the only explanation i've seen:

A couple of ideas that have been floating around in my head:

1. To attain ranks above Member, you'd have to earn some number of merit points. Merit points would be awarded in a monthly vote on best posts of the previous month, with various measures (TBD) to prevent gaming of the vote. Winning merit points might also come with a BTC prize.

this could be related:

Jr Members can no longer have signature links.

Partrol isnt new, I have been using it for ages.

why satoshi has only 250 merit?
363 activity, thus senior member.
Motion to give satoshi 21M merit.



So far, it seems all legendaries have 1000 merit, all heros have 500 merit, senior members 250, full members 100, members are at 10, newbies at 0.

Correct you are in having JR Member ranks ending.  Any reason or publication to this?  Definitely don't agree with this but I will just keep posting and reading.  It will screw up the airdrop I was apart of as I had to be a JR Member on here.

This idea isn't so bad after all, if losing merit points can lead to losing a rank, that's going to, pretty much, make bought accounts obsolete. Basically if someone was to buy a Hero member or even legendary rank account, he might not be able to maintain the merit score and therefore lose the high rank, am I right?

btw who can give out these merits? Only mods or maybe even higher ranks as well?

Does this mean now that merits are being used in attaining new rank level, there's a possibility of someone loosing or falling from a rank if they get demerits?

That would make buying high rank accounts useless in the longer run.


EDIT: I've just noticed the "+ merit" option on the right side.

There is a new +Merit button besides the quote button.
Leading to a new page that reads:

Quote
You have received a total of 500 merit. This is what determines your forum rank. You typically cannot lose this merit. You have 88 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 100 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 think it is similar to likes /claps/feedback  by other members who think the post is useful to other members  
and may be merit points are transferred between the members (and i guess they can be used sort of currency on forum )

That's true, but the way I see it, it can create a black market of 'merit trading' lie in many other forums where your rank is determined by the amounts of likes you get. Hopefully there will be a smart engine that will prevent abusing it, but I'm a bit skeptical about that.

The OP now has 506 merit points. Tyrantt has given him an extra 5 while testing the new system out.



I just sent the OP one merit point. Unfortunately it says I only have one merit point to send, so I've run out now. Members must only get one spendable merit point for each 30 days.
