Without coming up with a Merit Ponzi scheme I'll doubt I'll be ranking up anytime soon.

Dude, the Merit thingy is not, I repeat, IS NOT a Ponzi scheme. It's a Lending Program Thingy.  Grin Grin Grin

Enjoy your first +1 sM, bud. And remember, it's only on loan.

no one merit i only got 5 merit from someone thats sucks really
The merit system is a dead failure.
It only allows the advanced members to gain more bounty rewards...I'm sure that is why it was imposed...

This is Bitcoin forum. Not a bounty forum. The fact that most complainers seem to be focused on making money is a good indication that the merit system is a step in the right direction.

I don't understand why I need 100 to rank up. I need 90. 90!! How?? Yes write high-quality posts I hear you but if noone reads your post then nothing happens and your good quality post gets buried among the rest in a busy thread like this one for example.

What if only members like me read your good quality post? We cannot give any merits, simply put there just are not enough merits to give people to rank up.

There should be a rule where you have to spend your merit points on other people's posts. Otherwise this just won't work.

You have to spend merits on posts of others only. What will anyone achieve by keeping it in the account ?

That may be true. There's twitter to spam wide and large. And facebook. That place is a huge advertisement banner.

But I know that now I'm stuck at senior member. I won't get merit because it's held like Gollum holds the One.
You may say I will get merit if I post quality text.
Except for the fact there is a lot of shitposts everywhere with a lot of merit.

And as far as I can see, only high ranked people are enthusiastic about this merit. I wonder why.

the merit probably came from alt account people wont merit those type of post if they dont own the account or probably they are trading merit. you should report people abusing the system so they will get a negative trust and wont get accepted to campaigns.

Yes, you practically can send 50 smerit to one person, but i saw lot's of people who were doing that got red trust mark right after that because such a generosity will immediately fall under the review!

eg. nullius 289 Merits/Member account

Yes, i have seen him held up as an example a few times now.. he is doing very well merit wise, but lets be clear he is very much an outlier and an anomaly which no other low rank users are even close to matching. Him being held us as an example of what should be the norm is disingenuous as almost all will never match it. That being said he is doing very well, intentionally or unintentionally.

Invite system will fail as there are scammers already in. They will keep inviting their alts.

Good grief, if everyone posting in this thread put as much effort in lengthy posts with this much forthought and detail in other sections of the forum everyone here would have 1000 merit.

In that case it would be easier to spot them

People are obviously not understanding the merit system. This is intended for people to stop posting generic comments, spam, one line comments or useless opinions just to rank up. There's nothing wrong with one line comments, there are multiple times that is much better to be concise and straight forward and you can still have merit for an opinion like that. That's why the name "merit" you have to earn it. You have to participative, more collaborative, more useful, help each other and grow as a community. Merit is not a dead failure, is a system that will make this community grow as a whole with content and users that make a valuable forum.

You getting angry with more "advance members" because they were lucky to register their accounts long ago and be able to achieve the rank they currently are easier, is the same as if you would get angry of people grabbing bitcoin at $10. Of course it was easier to have 100 BTC back then, is much harder now with more people interested in it. The same goes with a higher rank in the forum, the more people are interested in it, the more scarce and valuable it becomes. Simple golden rule of supply and demand. Time is the most valuable measure of opportunity you can have.

This is Bitcoin forum. Not a bounty forum. The fact that most complainers seem to be focused on making money is a good indication that the merit system is a step in the right direction.

I don't mean any offence to either the merit recipient or the merit givers. But I believe this post is an example of the unexpected consequences of the merit system as implemented:

The post of suchmoon has received a rather significant amount of merits, which, I dare to say, reflect agreement with the opinion, rather than the quality of the post.

Again, this is not to critique the comment of suchmoon. I hole-heartedly agree with it. Also, everybody has their own reasons why they give their sMerits to somebody.

But I also don't believe the comment provided can be regarded as a "high-quality" post, in the original sense of what the sMerit system is expected to encourage.

If the merits are then being used to award simply for stating an opinion one is agreement with, then over time this will lead to the messages becoming biased towards the "majority opinion", and will not have much relevance with the quality of the post per se. (Again, I don't mean to imply that the post above is bad quality. But I also fail to see that it would be of such high quality deserving all the merits it received)

Unfortunatly I also can't offer up a remedy at this point in time, as with any such system it will always be possible to award an opinion expressed in a message rather than the quality of the message.

I think closing the acceptance of new members is a logical solution. One day a month there must be a new membership and the date of this date should not be announced in advance. Every month must be a random day.

How will you differentiate between genuine users and scammers doing the same thing (sending invitations) ?
