I think there should be some easy way to earn merit without being spotted by source to post quality response, probably achieving some numbers of activity for some period of time, logging in in one day earn 1 merit, curating good, quality, highest quality post, correcting non English speaker post grammar or anything that does not depends on other people giving out merit, task that members can do on their own to earn merit, probably steemit system can be employed here to increase overall effectiveness of rewarding system, right now the only way to earn merit is quality post and being spotted by merit source and the merit source must be willing and have time to give merit which make it probably only 1% of this forum members capable of, but probability of that happen probably 0.001% only as demonstrated by so many long winding post without any merit given.

I believe there is some people with quality content/idea just get put off by the restriction of their ranking although he is a good contributor

case as example:


Development team of new alt coin using new account will be limited to few post for certain period of time and no link/image allowed, if he stuck at Newbie rank probably for long period of time because nobody care to give him merit, that just hinder productive discussion.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.
Advertised sites are not endorsed by the Bitcoin Forum. They may be unsafe, untrustworthy, or illegal in your jurisdiction.

Getting a merit is like finding a bitcoin block while solo mining.  

Then what am I, like the merit Satoshi?

Please.  Write some good posts.  That’s like ASIC mining.

Thank you so much!
I think this is a very good idea.
Some forum use "Like" system. With each post in a thread, readers (users) can LIKE (vote up), it is easier than our Merit system

tl;dr explanation as long as there is no infographic:

You have Merits, those you cannot send.
You also have sMerits, those you can only send, they have no other purpose.

When someone gives Merit to you they lose sMerit of the amount transfered and you gain Merit as well as sMerit (which in case you can send again).

Example: Should I send 10 Merit to you for a post, my sMerit would decrease by 10.
Your Merit would increase by 10 and your sMerit would increase by 5.



Merits are exclusively earned, but the sMerit part you also get keeps the circulation flowing.

(Ignoring merit sources here, for the sake of making an easy example.)



If you want to be a merit source:

Collect TEN posts that have not received nearly enough merit for how good they are, and post quotes for them all in a new Meta thread.
Does that mean all merit sources are hand selected? Is there a list of currently active merit sources? Sorry, I was lazy, should have read in full first.

The forum ranking system is a bit complicated now... It'd be nice if someone made an infographic explaining activity and merit.
I'll try this.
I think merit is a new ranking because your post a very satisfactory they give a merit so i think merit a new ranking by the bitcoin its see how you understand the questionaires and answering it properly

Take an acting class.

...and that is why we have a merit system instead of a “like” system.  You wouldn’t want spammers and trash posters to have farmloads of alt accounts hitting the “like” button on each other, now would you?  I mean, would you?

The fact that some farmers also did this with merit makes me laugh. But I hope they just keep doing this tho, makes it easier to catch one.

Oh sorry, just realized alt coin is not welcome here, sorry for that, probably written somewhere still have to look for it, thank you for highlighting that

Oh yes, it does make it easier to catch them.  There is a small conspiracy theory floating about, to the effect that the merit system system has an ulterior motive of outing alt accounts.  Moronic spammers just can’t resist the bait.  Gotcha.

Just a few moments ago, your post said this:

So high rank members can ask for lower rank member restriction ? that is how this forum working, wow so much about decentralization spririt you have there, only people with lots of ability ranks and money got good favors

Did you suddenly realize that I am a low-ranked Member with 98 activity who started out with zero merit, and now have 498 merit?  (I was a Jr. Member when the merit system started.  I didn’t even get 10 freebies like you did.)  Or did you have another reason for a hasty edit?

Any which way, totally changing the substance of your post to some weird form of merit flattery is patently dishonest.

P.S., observe my earliest posts at Newbie rank:  My debut in Development & Technical Discussion, three days after I started actively posting from Brand New status.  So yes, “Newbies” and Jr. Members can have plenty to contribute to the forum.  Those who do, will be those who earn merit and advance in rank.

I find these cases strange. Can you clarify theymos?

https://i.imgur.com/5myxjQx.png
Jr with 0 Merit instead of 30

https://i.imgur.com/BTVw8Up.png
Hero with 1000 Merit instead of 500

And is it possible for any existing user to lower their rank because of the introduction of merit? Someone complained about that

Hope so, we have the right to complaint to those dont have merit and so willing but not maybe qualified?!
Thanks for this post, at least my feelings become grèat, to have a supporter and see the some cases of this. More power and truly God bless us all.

1.I believe that jr member rank doesnt have merit and all the hero member who had activity number in the range of becoming legendary member will get 1000 merits, theymos stated that.

2. I believe there are many cases in meta complaining about that, their rank got lowered because some of their posts are deleted before the merit system introduced  and they stuck on the lower rank because they need merits now to rank up. Merits just act as a barrier for people to rank up, rank is still determined by activity points.

What if they get caught? Nothing will happen when they belong to a certain 'class' of scammers.  Roll Eyes

I did not want to offend anyone, I want to show that you need to work hard to reach the top in any job! To whom to stop himself to decide. Therefore, I write quality reports in the branches of jurisprudence, only for someone on the birthday of a photo merit put 3 merits. me for a month to write and help only 18 merit

Seriously?  Your graphic depicts a Newbie dead from exhaustion, next to a crowd of Jr. Members who struggle to who hold up all the other ranks above them.  Two Jr. Members to the side hold a Red Flag of the Communist type, with dark, revolutionary looks on their faces.  The “subscription” notice at the top says, “Foremost Exponent of Revolutionary Industrial Unionism”.  You posted 100% Commie scum agitprop, definitely against the merit system.

Is that the best you can do for vulgarity, let alone insult?  Are you retarded?  I mean that as a literal question.  Even a bright ten-year-old can whip off a better insult than “your mom!”  Thus, your mental function must be below that level.

I was born in the USSR and I know what communism is and how it was necessary at that time to work to feed the children. And what kind of propaganda was both the USSR and the United States. I'm not for any political system, they are all one type, only the names are different. With ranks that merit simply added more work and all!
