There should be a public list of all merits given/received by a user, like the trust page.

I was thinking the same thing, but as Darkstar said if they delete the post/thread then what record would there be to look at other than just the +X amount? If it links a deleted post, it just won't be there to look at and observe. Unless there is a safe way to utilize archives without squandering forum security.

While we communicate in English, this isnt the only language we might speak. I just gave out some Merit in my local section.
I would suspect theymos also has placed some merit sources in the local sections (eg the mods of those sections) to avoid this problematic.

This answers my question before, I was unsure how many high-ranking users were actually bi-lingual or non-English speaking as I never visit those boards being only able to speak English, currently. So then they won't be excluded, so long as they speak a language that is shared significantly enough around here.

Would be interested to see the demographics on which languages offer an opportunity to rank up and at which speed.

yeah a new function and you got 1000 Merit point without doing anything. cool

If users were not given the minimum amount to maintain their rank everyone would be a newbie as of today. That would make no sense and do good for nobody.

I think merit points should only stay if the post was deleted by a moderator, or the owner of a self moderated topic. If the post is deleted by the user, the sMerits should return to the person who gave the merits. If merit selling/trading was to get popular, it would be fairly easy to hide who you bought the merit from or traded with, as you could make a temp post, wait for them to "pay" the merit, and then delete it, hiding all traces of the "trade" from the general public. Thoughts?

I don't think it works like that.
The merit point will still show on your profile along with the username that gave it to you, just the link with the reference will point to an invalid post.
Lutpin was about to to test this...


The merit page should indeed be public like the trust page:

I am confused about the merit system about merit sources part so, you can be a merit source by just collecting 10 high quality helpful posts doesn't received enough merits and post it in meta section or no? And another thing how about account farmers? They will just use their high ranked account to send merits to their alts just to rank up and sold it or use it to spam DT members must be aware of this.

It's useless to me. I can't rank up higher than Legendary.

Anyone who earns it. Initially only higher ranks got a bonus but going forward anyone can earn it for quality posts.

With this new function, i think that only member that are already member rank or higher before today get Merit point because it's free one time Merit point. and the other with lower rank will never get enough Merit point to up level.
I see your point, but from Novice to Jr Member to Member, your Merit requirement is only 10 which is too easy to achieve if you're not a shitposter.

But to those who are a week or less to rank up, the timing is bad.
Me for example, I'm 5 days short of becoming a full member,
I got the default 10 merit because of my rank, now I need 90 more to rank up, that's the rock bottom.

Well, I'm confident with my activities.
Ranking up won't take that long.

No, you need sMerit to send. Merit cant be transfered, it is forever tied to your account.
(First reply, explanation for tl;dr persons: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2818350.msg28856606#msg28856606)

Sure, and they have big motivation give it to some newbie and do not sell it for someone who pay, especially in our local tear.
Sadly, I am not allowed to sell any of my sMerit and source merit.

But to those who are a week or less to rank up, the timing is bad. Me for example, I'm 5 days short of becoming a full member,
I got the default 10 merit because of my rank, now I need 90 more to rank up, that's the rock bottom.
I'm at 966 activity, well in the upper part of the window for legendary.
I got 500 merit, people with less activity than me got 1000 merit because they hit legendary by chance, sooner than I did.
500 merit. not 10, not 90, 500.

You really don't get it, do you?

The whole point of merit is for establishing a requirement to obtain a rank. Those users you are complaining about who got merit "for free" only get the merit because they were active members of this forum for years. The only reason they get merit is so that they have enough to meet the new requirements for rank. Those members get the minimum requirement for their rank and will still need to earn merit to rank up, just like everyone else.

Having the merit does not give them any special privileges or powers that they didn't already have. It is literally only there to establish their rank.

I suggest additionally enter a negative Antimerit. To obtain a new rank, the Antimerit must not exceed 10% of all messages.
This will help self-cleaning the forum from spam messages - users will start deleting their bad messages.
Antimerit/demerit is very bad idea - it will punish people who have non-stardard point of view! Many people are fed up with "political correctness" imposed by government and stereotypes in society, so they don't want to see it on this forum!

I think only way to up Full member rank for you now is that buying Merit points  Grin
If not, may be next year 2019 you will have enough 100 Merit points

But is there is any way we can see the user's merit page like we do with the trust feedbacks?

How can someone like Lauda or Vod see if the user is using alts to give himself merit after he deletes his posts? (so they can neg trust him)

Edit:
theymos need to make a public list of sent and received merit of a user, like a trust summary. This will easily solve that problem.

I will do this in the near future, maybe tomorrow. Also top merited posts/topics/users.

Yes, not seeing the target post is problematic, but if someone has a lot of merits for deleted posts - that would be suspicious in itself. Like spammy trust ratings with no reference.

Buying merit is prohibited and will get you banned.

If not, may be next year 2019 you will have enough 100 Merit points
Or you can not shitpost and instead make quality posts. You'll get merit if your posts are quality.

I like it. Now I can reward good posts instead of just reporting bad posts, which seems like all I ever do here nowadays.

From where I stand I'm equally likely to merit a noob or a legendary... as long as the post is worth it.

What will happen if use all the sMerit I have? Do I get more?

0.5 for each merit you get.

yeah a new function and you got 1000 Merit point without doing anything. cool

Don’t feel bad, Bruce Wagner has 250 merit, cablepair has 500 merit, cypherdoc has 1000 merit, MagicalTux (aka Mark Karpeles) has 500 merit, Inaba (aka EclipseMC, Butterfly Labs, his trust rating is the worst I’ve ever seen -9999: -15 / +4p) has 1000 merit.

I don’t think it matters what your merit is unless you want to jump ranks and be able to make signature money. This might help the mods out by cutting down on the meaningless posts aimed only at post count. Hopefully “merit” will succeed where “activity” failed miserably. It will be interesting to see how Merit is gamed. I can definitely see account sales increasing now.

I can only view my own merit page. I don't think those who buy merit are going to rat themselves out, as it would ruin the entire point.

The merit page should indeed be public like the trust page:

Press your middle mouse button when trying to open a link to open it in a new window. Problem solved. Now you should have given me 200 merit. Tongue

Watching.

The middle mouse button only functions on whatever you previously set it up to do. For instance my middle mouse button is set to backward, like previous page, previous folder, etc.
