system change is better, but it hard to newbie earn more from bounty!!!!
Yes merit brings this forum in the better future, but if the intention of the members are only to earn in this forum i think the spammer and shit poster will not be lessen instead they will rejuvenate more members like them. Hope the vision of merit would apply by individual to make this forum will be more competitive.

Every change that is made for this forum is for the better of this forum. I have not been here for long but i already seen so many spam and things, in fact i can be considered as a spammer before time, but merit changed me to level up myself. You can be like me too, everyone can, maybe even better than me.
This is a forum, treat it as a place to gather and talks among the community, and give something good for it, and then you might get a return from it like knowledge, popularity, merit and money as a bonus. In my opinion, it is not a sin if you want to earn money, but if you set it as your main reason to be here and earn it with bad tricks, then it is a big sin and you deserve hell because of it.

Thanks for the explanation. Yet it's very difficult for a newbie to collect merits. Still, I'll try to increase my knowledge regarding the technology, concepts and culture related to blockchain and cryptocurrency. Once I gather enough information, I can start contributing with rich contents and earn merits. But, at the same time, the seniors can encourage us with some free merits Smiley.

You were doing good till you posted the last line. Be clear what you want:

1) Learning and improving the quality of posts and earning those merits.

2) Some merits by begging.

You do not need both, believe me.

I agree with you but there's this uncertainty that your efforts will not be even rewarded for it. For example, you replied to a post that you're interested to participate in and you composed a post that you know for yourself that you did everything but is not rewarded for it because they just didn't give any attention to it or it has been buried because there's a lot of people posting in the thread. So it means that there no incentives will be given even if you put ample of time and effort that you can for it? I also agree with the merit system that we have not but I think there's room for improvement because what we wanted to filter out here is spammers populating the forum.

I believe what he's talking about was, there are some Sr. Members extending their hands out to newbies by giving away merits for their quality posts.

As long as you dont spam meaningless posts or try to promote scams there should be no issues for you at bitcointalk Smiley

The merit has made it very hard to rank up, i wish i were a sr.member before it happened but it happened for a (good) reason.
I think that if they did not do anything to counter all the spambots the forum could start to loose members and not be the central meeting spot for crypto fans all over the world like it is today.

Getting member rank is easy btw, and everything above should be harder to reach than pure activity. If anything the system should have come earlier. If one look at forum as a whole and not just ones own rank at least i can see it quite easy Smiley

When focusing on me, myself and I i dont like it as i will have a delayed rank up though haha Tongue

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.

Yes you have. Thank you.

Much appreciated. You flame my heart to do more good contributions with this. Thanks too for your appreciation. Best wishes

It's in the OP. The refill of sMerits is done through the sources, the only way everyone else can get more sMerit is to be awarded Merit.

Quote
Merit sources
There are 57 merit sources with a total merit generation of up to 11975 sMerit per 30 days

Every Merit you receive results in also getting 0.5 sMerit.

2.5 merit for pretty cool poetry, and 2.5 for making me laugh Cheesy

That's the way to do it, Old Son Cheesy

lol  Grin

When I saw 5 merits, things that I wondered was gone. Truly and absolutely, only I could say THANK YOU VERY MUCH from side by side of my heart. Blood runs back and fort inside my body, SHOUTING YEHEYY with flag merit carry.

thanks and I wish you the very best

Our merit wont be refilled per month, only certain people called 'sources' that have their sMerit refilled per month basis. Currently we have 57 merit sources with a total merit generation of up to 11975 sMerit per 30 days and with that number can be used, i guess it is enough to rank up worthy users of jr. member to member rank. So dont be discouraged by the number of it, try to make a quality things and you will earn some. You can read it here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;stats

The problem is... you have to get noticed by them. So posting 2-3 good quality posts every day won't help and spamming every thread with short posts won't help either.
So what's left? IMHO you've got to make Bitcointalk your main employment if you care about rank.

Personally I have some more-than-standard free time the last days and I can be active in the forums, but I have more questions than answers to give! Not really a chance to reach member status that way. I belive that my fair rank with my knowledge, activity etc should be Member, not Jr. Member nor above Member. Yet I'll have to probably wait like 6 months to reach Member. Yes, I only care for my rank because of signature campaigns, but what's wrong with being paid for doing marketing? It's like accusing an actor for advertising a product he might not be using IRL.

A lot of people asked that but it was not needed if they read OP carefully. That one day will never come as there are merit sources who will some merits to spend each month. Whenever they send merits to members, members will also receive half of merits.

When I saw 5 merits, things that I wondered was gone. Truly and absolutely, only I could say THANK YOU VERY MUCH from side by side of my heart. Blood runs back and fort inside my body, SHOUTING YEHEYY with flag merit carry.

Congratulations. That is the fun and excitement associated with merits. Just make valuable posts and the merits will keep raining. It is thrilling to check which posts got merited thereafter.

Thank you so much !
Begging for Merits is not the right way to get them... Read all the advices posted in this thread on how to get Merit and maybe you will receive your desired 10 points.

It seems that my posts are not good enough to earn Merits from other people, I know most of my posts are not very long but I try to help other guys often and I'm also trying to improve my English to write in high quality.
No matter, I can live with that even though I would have been a Senior member now without the Merit system.

BUT seeing a guy like this one earned 13 Extra-Merits ... that's very disappointing: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1953612.msg30690881#msg30690881
I've reported him twice and nothing has happened, look at his post history, it's really a shame!

Do not worry about others getting merits by cheating. They will get painted red sooner or later. You are a old member here, it is time for you to share the knowledge you acquired so far.

Wow! I just checked his receive/give of merit and well.. Giving 20 and 21 for meaningless posts. Thoose he received was also quite bad.

But, now that he and thoose he received from runs out the sources hand out to quality post only and thoose people cant give or receive for such bad posts anymore.

Edit: 1 merit for you sir. I only had two so could not send more unfortunately.

Indeed, with a new system like this there must be a disadvantaged, especially clear for the account that is going towards a higher, maybe this system should be applied to the newbie, so they can be better, but because it is going like this we have to be patient and try to more can improve, I also still learn a lot for this.

* I'd be happy to share my merit for you even though it's not much, let's try to get better.

Wow, thank you all for those Merits, maybe I can give you some back one day! It was not my intention to get some with this post, I just wanted to stop this guy, it seems his post has been deleted now, but he just keeps going:

I knew that in this topic many high-ranking people are on the way and hoped that they can finally stop this.
