I was a bit dissapointed when I at last got activity level high enough to be full member but then they had just added this merit system so now it feels impossible to become a full member. How can I actually get more merit? I don't Think anyone ever will give me that for free...

Can I get merit by joining Bounty Campaigns? Or should a make tutorials or something else? Don't understand what is required to earn merit?

1) You get merit points for making quality posts here. You can check posts getting good merit points here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;stats. Learn and post accordingly.

2) You should not try buying merit points as it will result in negative trust.

3) There are more than 141 pages of content related to merit system. If you read it carefully, you will not need  a tutorial.

All the best. 
Actually, they already know how the system works. But, they just disagree with new term.
And, keep complaining for "THIS UNFAIR SYSTEM". Really, i want to vomit see many topics that say negative about Merit.

I think the vast majority of people are going to have a lot of trouble getting any merit. Thus far, the majority of active contributors haven't received any merit.

You should back that up although I have a feeling you won't.

Who's the "majority of active contributors"?

It would be nice if we can get a merit menu like "Last merit post" and"Top merited posts for last 24h" for every section and subsection. So everyone can check the top merited posts in off-topic section for example, then you have more control on how merit is distributed. I know that we have already top and last merited posts in the whole forum but I think it won't be a bad idea to have control on the local sections also.
Just an idea Smiley

Merit is the dream of all dividing the soul of the coming rank up of the members. Piercing the heart of the eager. Broke the mind of simpletons. Rebuking the shits but lights up the inner core. Hear folks the shouts of merit FAIR or UNFAIR side by side of this corner. Merit sounds COOL but the people FALL. Arguing the silent killer/life giver (merit/rank up) of what, why, how, and what if can be find almost everywhere. Hope merit will be settled.

I hope I contribute to this topic.

You should be able those details if you check this page carefully: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;stats
I think it is worth giving some time to read posts getting highest number of merits. I do not think so much merits are distributed in different sections that we need to have separate lists for each one.

The system is just like Finale exam. At the last of every year we have to attend an exam for getting promotion to the next class. if you don't study hard you will not pass on the exam and you will not get promotion to the higher class. Grin Because of this we had to stady hard so that we can pass the exam. Grin The merit system is just like this, Wink If you don't post good/quality post you will not get merit by any one.If you don't get merit your rank will not upgrad and upgrading rank is important and its valuable. so for this you have to worke hard and keep making good quality post.  Wink

Yeah, sure. That's why legendary are sending each other merits, not sharing with anyone else.

In the meantime don't hold your breath. You won't be ranking up any time soon and neither will I.

Uhh... I think I should be offended.

My rank is legendary, and I've tried to distribute what sMerit I get to posts by newer members that strike me as interesting, constructive, or at least well thought out.

Mind you, the system is new and it's NOT habitual to me yet, but I have made the effort. And it appears to me that I am not alone in this.

Actually I could have been Legendary myself if only I had spammed a lot in these years - we all spam at a certain point, you can't explain in every post the sense of life. There are also "shitposts" like "hey I love that and I love this".

Into the Italian section of this forum there are people complaining about legendary sending merit, frankly I take it for granted, I'm starting to dislike the system and I won't investigate any further since I will just give up "giving my best".
Also I don't like ... licking boots with "hey this sssssMerit rocks".

I'm confused on one thing though. There is this "leitmotiv" going around that merit is going to kill spam.
I find this statement an open defying of logic.
Merit, as it has been show, is just a "like" system, à la facebook, with a substantial difference that accumulating points (that reminds me the points you get on the supermarket to buy a new set of pots or something like that) will make you, eventually, rank up.
In any way that won't prevent spammers from spamming - low ranks can still post, maybe not as fast as they want, but still they can post.
And that won't stop anyone else from posting what is called "shitposts", since there is no "de-merit" (oh crap, now I'm starting to give bad ideas to the administration...).

So, again, what's the point exactly for this ssssMerit system? (I have to make an avatar with Gollum saying "my sssssssMerit", too much fun...)
I'm not being rethorical here. I honestly don't get why the administration had the urge to add something more than just activity.
And activity alone is sufficient to speed down fake accounts.

Hi people!
I have enough activity to change my rank.
But now we need to have 500 Merit.

I have no idea where to get it. Where I write the answers in the topics, there are many beginners.
Now and for 10 years you can not get this amount.
Very disappointing.
Don't be disappointed, really, it could always be worse Smiley 250 merits are a lot of course, but not impossible, it's just the question of time, but not 10 years...
You can check my activities, I'm 5 activity points away from having a chance to rank up to be a Legendary but still missing nearly 500 merits. Problem? No. I was expected to become a legendary sometime this year. Merit system kicked in, so maybe next year, that's life.
You are a senior, so you have all the chances to enjoy the benefits of your rank, the forum and of course bitcoin.
If you make quality posts and somehow you won't get merited, you can still search the forum, there are several threads where high ranked members are helping those who are eligible for the merits, based on the post history and post quality. And be patient, that really helps Smiley

So what's the policy on a coin dev giving 20 merit to the post where his appointed PR flack introduces himself? That sounds like merit abuse to me, no? So as to not unfairly impugn anyone in case this is kosher, if a mod PMs me I'll provide a link to the post for him/her to evaluate.

10-4; I will file under "distasteful, but not abusive." It seemed like a grey-area sort of call hence why I asked about it here.

Is this a bug ? This user has more than enough merits and activity to be a legendary member but his current rank is still hero member.  

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=558519

That user I linked above was just one of them I think there's more of them who have 1000 merits and 770+ activity who aren't legendary.
