I'd rather go for a system of ranking up way more slowly than before WITHOUT considering merit points at first. That way the spammers will still have no chance to rank up.
Umm. Yes, they will have a chance to rank up. Spammers can also rank up slowly and they would probably rank up faster than any one of us because, well, their name is spammers.

If you do get merit points you will rank up faster. That's way people still want to make good posts and we still cut out the rankspammers.
The thing is spammers can buy merit points with your system and thus rank up faster. With the forum's current system, spammers can only buy so much merit points before it becomes obvious that they are doing so. Then they will get banned.

Why i don't have any sMerit left in my account? Few days ago i have around 30 sMerit but now i have 0.

Code:
we reserve the right to decay unused sMerit in the future.
This is the reason? But i am using my sMerits.

its great when you ask somebody to merit your good posts and say youll do the same... thinking that would be perfectly fine and you get negative trusted ... 6 month acccount being on everyday down the drain.. and the person who negged wont even give me the respect to work back my account to neutral trust

What’s worse than a dirtball, is a self-righteous dirtball trying to play the victim.  Nobody with a moral compass or a shred of trustworthiness would try to pull something like this:


Upon that, asapjoshyy, I would not trust you to sweep my floor or empty my trash.  Thus, I have now added my own negative trust feedback with the comment:

Quote
Extremely blatant, peculiarly sleaze-dripping attempt at merit farming.  Much worse than someone who asks a professor for a particular grade:  This person tried to pass the metaphorical class by offering a quid pro quo deal.  ...then later, expressed self-righteous victimhood about the consequences!  I would not trust such a person for any purpose whatsoever.

Thanks for bringing your misdeeds to my attention with your whining.

In addition to activity, everyone now has a merit score...

With this simple statement, theymos made the Meta board cool again.

Wait, has Meta ever been cool?

Or rather, this has made Meta the “happening” place for dividing the cool from the uncool.

Uncool:  Whiners, beggars, sleazeball merit-farmers, and assorted other lazy, spammy, useless freaks.

Cool:  Poking the uncool people with sharp sticks, and laughing at them.  The deeper purpose of such hostility is to induce the uncool people to leave, permanently, so that the cool people can hang out and chat about Bitcoin happily ever after.

"Merit farming", "trust farming", "sig farming", but does anyone actually grow anything anymore?

It's my impression, now that more time has passed under the merit system, the power to award merits is limited to too few people with too narrow an interpretation of what merits being sMerited.  Two sides of a discussion can be meritable, after all, it takes at least two to have a conversation, even if the other side of the conversation is entirely skewed in their opinion from what you believe / know is right.  Objectively, there is merit in disagreement.

You are correct.  Unfortunately, you were one of the unfortunate that had just under the required activity to bump up to next rank prior to merit.  You do indeed need another149 merits.

WOW it's going to be a really huge chalange to me to atcheve that, even if I take +1 merit a day it is very long road.
I guess everyone who will quote me will say to concentrate on high quality posts, but as I see even such posts do not get any merit sometimes, but simple ones, like this
Wow how i should get that much merit Sad 100 for Full Member
do.

You know I was of the theory the merit system wasn't working since people can easily meet activity requirements without meeting the merit ones, but you're the proven exception to the rule that I've now witnessed. I no longer believe this theory. I still wouldn't mind merit requirements being cut in half though, just to make it all a bit easier.

Does the Portuguese local section have a merit source? And is he active? Or should we send someone to apply to be a source?

Admin has declared who the merit sources are. You can check the merits distributed there and if you see someone meriting posts of different users regularly, you get some hints there.

It will increase only when you get more merit points for your posts. You have got 5 merit points and thus 2 Smerits for it are added in your account.

Your sMerits only increase if you receive Merits from someone for your high quality, creative, original threads. You will get sMerits which equal to half of those Merits you earn from good posts. For example: If you receive 10 Merits, you will also have 5 sMerits in your account.
Please check the following topic for more details.

I have spent a couple of minutes and checked, your posts are not qualified enough to get Merits. However, I also have seen that their qualities improved recently. Keep up your improvement in quality, merits will come to your account sooner or later. Dont's give up, keep contribute to the forum and help other users.

I so much cherished the Idea of ''merit'' issue that shall objectively force out or reduce drastically to barest minimum unwarranted, unscrupulous, rudely, poor or low constructive, incompatible, senseless, non nonsensical and less significant POSTS in this forum. My own area of concern which I would want you to shed light upon is 'what would happen if you try yo give yourself merits or luring for merits from noted, spotted or un noted members, especially high ranking members?

Wow, eleven and already make money from bitcoin, that is a good thing man, i am regretting my younger time now  Grin

For all of guys who are afraid of merit, it is only running for 2 weeks, give it time, i bet on the future people will give merits when they see a quality post. And there will be a lot of quality posts in the future, because with this merit, it forces us to step our game to make good posts, so in the future there will be many of us who can make a great post, the key for now is to accept and learn.

I’m as yet unborn; so I guess that makes you the bum gang elder.

P.S., asapjoshyy, thanks for the retaliatory neg.  My Internet newbie guide tells me that the proper term is “LOL”.


Edit:
Wow, eleven and already make money from bitcoin, that is a good thing man, i am regretting my younger time now  ;D

You still have the opportunity to get younger in the future.  Simply start leaving negative trust for sleaze-dripping imbeciles.  See how it works:  actmyname and I are each getting younger with every passing moment.

You handed out 33 sMerits since the introduction. I guess that's where they went.

I've been trying to make a good post, but I also have not get the merits
You mainly post in Spam Megathreads. If the thread itself is only used to increase post count, posts aren't worth any Merits. You can easily see this by the fact that more than 95% of the people posting there hasn't earned a single Merit.
