Trivia:

For current members, your initial merit score is equal to the minimum required to your rank. Of that, a certain amount (less than the usual half) is spendable. The spendable amount was calculated based on your current rank and the number of activity points you earned in the last year.


So much grateful for it. Thanks for being fair to all the members here who worked hard on making sure they rank up accordingly. Also, the Merit and new rank requirement is a good avenue for the whole forum community to have a better and healthy exchanging of ideas and not just sharing a blabber all around. This will surely empower the members to produce quality posts over time. This will also for sure encourage highly educated people to join the forum since they don't just see low-quality posts.

ok all admins/mod please read this , if you find it helpful then implement it -

solution to make sure smerits get distributed on daily basis to most of eligible members without any fraud -

1. increase smerit supply first .

2. to check fraud implement these rules -

a. A person can give only smerits to max 5 members per day .

b. a member cant give smerit to same person again until he give it to 5 other different members .

c. any member who shared his smerit to less than 5 members in a month , reduce few merits from his account . bcoz he is like inactive member of forum .

d. a member can give only maximum 20 smerits to other member in a month . it will help in stopping grey market .
OR if a member have 100 smerits then he cant send more than 20% of his merits to same guy in a month .

e. will think more and edit the same post .

That’s not really fair. If someone like Stephen Gornick was still around he would probably get all of my sMerit all the time. He was the most truly helpful and unbiased person on this forum. He would have deserved to get more than others and more from one person.

Oh, don’t tell me Stephen Gornick is still here, he’s not.

It is likened to asking for "street cred"; not something that holds weight without the proper action.

So I had my alt judypug1956   send this account 2 points

my alt had 7 to send  and was at 250  before the send.

note  I was at 1002 before my alt sent me 2 points

screen shot shows me now at 1004 on this account


So alts can boost merits on main accounts
I did take a screen shot showing the increase below

ok so you guys (lutpin too) think giving many smerits to few members is ok than giving few smerits to many people .

you talk like those icos who limit their minimum whitelist investment to 10 ether or 1 btc . favoring whales ..

always remember if some one gave you something precious then divide that carefully , its not about whom you like most or who helped you , here you are doing it for community , smerits are not for showing you love to dear ones .

and also , even if you give 1 extra smerit to same guy , then remember there will be one more guy who will miss that 1 smerit which you could have given to him .


I just see it differently. I see it as a system that allows you to reward quality posts. Some people will never get any and others will get a lions share. The worst trolls on this forum sometimes post something that’s really helpful or new and interesting so even they will end up with some. Or, maybe I’m missing something.

sMerit are meant to be spent. Giving them to active people who read a lot and can thus distribute them is better than giving them to people who might just follow one thread, read one section, or are simply inactive.
It's on those who have sMerit to keep redistributing them and spread their Merits into the community
(while doing this, they should act responsibly. Reward good posts, not everyone in an attempt to give out to as many people as possible).

So I noticed it says unused Merit can be decayed at some point in the future - What's the point of this?
Unused sMerit (sendable Merit). I think it's supposed to incentive rewarding others with merit and punish those that hoard their sMerit.
The merit system works only if people actively use it, else everyone is stuck at their current rank.



I wish there would have been some sort of option of giving dislike (-ve merit) to the spam/LQ posts and if any post receives certain -ve merits/dislikes,it should be automatically deleted /hidden
Given the concerns about abuse even with only positive merit, I dont know if I would support that.
There's a whole other level to possible abuse vectors when adding negative merit as well, that can decrease somebodies rank.
Thanks for your kindful words. I wonder about it too. Most of users will be stucked at their current ranks if the merit system wont be used effiiciently, and users don't be active and ready to help each other.

The real Stephen Gornick either sold his account or left the forum forever and his old account was hacked. This new person ain’t him.

so you think only 5-10 members are active daily ?? cant you find even 20-30 different eligible members for your smerits ??

if there are only 5-10 active users , then rules cant do anything ..

I've given merit to 20 users today. I dont see the problem with that.
It was your suggestion to limit the users I can merit per day, not mine.
Do you read your own posts, did you switch your opinion since?

There are more than 5-10 members that have sMerits. Hundreds of thousands of users got some number of sMerits. There are also 35 merit sources who produce sMerit out of nothingness.

It seems that the merit curve is very steep. Basically, to go from member to full member you would need "90" merit. On the other hand, merit is quite expensive. For each "merit" created by the sources we can make a geometric series sum:

Sn= a1 (1-r^n)/(1-r)

with r= .5 and a1=1, results if summed to infinite in ... two. So, for 20 people to progress in one year from member to full member you would need to generate 1000 merit points on the sources (not counting other promotions, like to hero or Senior).

May I ask what is the generation rate that you are considering? If it is too tight this forum may become a private club for an elite as far as ranks.

I do agree that is good to have a system to curate the content, and this is not bad, depending on how it is regulated.

Stumble upon your post by happenstance, glad to see you've done the math re a concern I had, coming to the same conclusion as I. Bravo!

Aside: Thou not my intent (seriously), it's the likes of my reply above that users may pen in hopes of garnering sM.

Here's to hoping that the new sM thingy turns this place from a shithole (according to some, not my sentiment) where at least a hundred million dollars was lost to nefarious actors, to a more friendly environment where most likely another hundred million dollars will be lost to nefarious actors, then members of our private club can sit back and proclaim that we've cleaned up the place ... but pardon the mess.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Merits credited now should be based on the current activity.
Like for my case current activity is 112, to become a Full Member I need 120.

112/120 = 93.33%

Should have 93 instead of just 10.

The merits credited for the newly ranked and those that is close to ranking up is the same. That's not fair.

so you think only 5-10 members are active daily ?? cant you find even 20-30 different eligible members for your smerits ??
I've given merit to 20 users today. I dont see the problem with that.
It was your suggestion to limit the users I can merit per day, not mine.
Do you read your own posts, did you switch your opinion since?

that was a example not necessary the number must be same , except smerit source other people will have limited smerits , so capping their daily limit was the idea .

sMerit sources have a limit too.

so capping their daily limit was the idea .
The limit is per 30 days. Furthermore each user (not just sMerit sources) is limited to giving another user at most 50 merits per month.
