Also I need to know that,
Will the merits will be given only to the posts which are related to cryptocurrency?
Or if we answer well to any kind of  question,will we get merit...?
Or does depends on the merit source?

It is not necessary that you will get merit points for discussions related to cryptocurrency. Here are some places you can get merit points:

1) A lot of posts in meta section and especially in this particular official thread has got merits. You should thus try to post here often. I guess this is because a lot of senior members check this section often.

2) Even if you do not have exceptional writing skills, you can get some merits. For instance, some members got merits for creating useful infographic related to the forum.

Try to avoid the local boards if merit points are your only target as there might be less  number of merit sources there.

I strongly believe Merit system should only start once you become Sr. Member -> Hero -> Legendary
Let the system decide who reaches Sr. Member Activity + Post are fair enough criteria already.

Now its purely in hands of other people if they let you progress or stay as Jr. Member forever.

There is a lot of space for improvement in the merit system, but the first goal - to reduce shitpost - was achieved, at least in part.
And - if you give a fast look - there is a general improvement of the post quality: I see less and less one line post.

Then, there are a lot of opinions about how to improve the system.
For my part, I received 16 real merits starting from zero, so - even slowly - it's possible to grow. But I received them in the italian section, where there are only few people and zero spam, so it's very simple to be read and - if it's the case - appreciated.

In the international zone, the real problem is to catch attention: even if you make a very good post, you need to hope that someone will read it, and - if he likes it - he has merit to give.

Actually, this is the biggest problem that I see, a too limited number of merit in circulation, that make the situation too static.

But I'm very positive that we'll find a solution.

I agree. The international sections are just too crowded. Even in a small section like this (Meta) good posts are often left unnoticed, let alone on a huge section like Bitcoin and Altcoin Discussion. Moreover, those big sections are still flooded with low-quality posts now, a month after the merit system introduced. I'm not sure those sections quality could be improved solely by this system. I'm also not sure whether adding the number of merit sources, thus increasing the number of new merit in circulation, could solve the issue.

I would love to hear theymos' opinion about this.

The only effective solution imo is to regulate signature campaign, for examples :
Prohibit low ranks from joining it, allowing only members+ or even full members+ (having +5-10 merit or not is useless) to join.
A list of signature managers and impose a moderator for every 3-5 of them, every campaign manager seems to not care about spam and shit-posting should be removed as a manger for 3 months at least.
Impose a moderate amount of posts per period, for example asking for more than 35 posts per week and especially +20 of them in a specific section is simply asking the crowd to spam this section..

I think that while the merit system is good, the limits for rank upgrades are too high. I got 10 merits so I was able to upgrade to a Member, but upgrading to a Full member is an impossible task - I can't imagine how many excellent posts should I write to get another 90 merits. Has anyone succeeded to get so many merits yet?

Its not that high, have patience and dedication mate. Have confidence, I'm sure if you do a great job making quality posts (that is by helping other folks with useful information) you're going to rank up soon.

Indeed there was, and he's just one them.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=976210

You don't need excellent posts. The only thing which can bring you up the ladder now is powerful friends.

If you don't need excellent/quality posts to improve and rank up, how then? Oh right, powerful friends. Something's smells fishy here, well if you say so, I'm not gonna be surprised on how you get the other 29 Merits you have right now.

Rules should be applied to all people, whatever the rank. So every member should gain merit to rank up, else he will stay in his current rank forever. I respect your suggestion, but I don't think that is fair for high rank members, (Sr member to legendary)

Now its purely in hands of other people if they let you progress or stay as Jr. Member forever.
If you post high quality posts and you deserve merit points, you will reach the next rank as soon as possible if you have enough activities.

A suggestion for you. Have a look at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;stats=recent from time to time and then read the posts that received merit and the threads they are in. Then compare that to your own posting history. You'll work it out.

I just wonder that, if I creat a good topic but only Jr.member or lower join how can they give me Merit? (they don't have it).
And if I Merit someone, the merit of me is descrease?

You have as much chances as any other member on this forum. Some people are complaining that only high ranked members are getting merits, I think it is the opposite. The new members are getting more encouragement by the merit sources. Personally, I have got only one merit so far but still I am content with it.

I dont want to be stuck up in just only Jr. Member. I want to become a member! Why is so hard to get merit?

No other Jr Member would like to get stuck at this level as well and that results in competition here. It is not yet very hard to get merits here. You just need to be smart and little active here.

Wait a sec... so you can get a merit on your replies too? Wow... i really thought merit is given only to the "Posts" which you create... I mean new post or topics which are created by me.

That's new for me and it makes it even harder. Let say if I posted something in a thread at Page 3 and after some replies thread reached to 10 pages. So who's gonna read my "valuable" comment on page 3 ever? Except for those maximum 19 users who posted immediately after me and then new page started.

So only chance for getting a merit is if your comment is on the First Page or Last Page? Or creator of the Post who's actually following the post mostly he is newbie or Jr. Member have nothing to give and nothing to get in the end.

You might just be on the verge of an important discovery in your journey. Have you ever stopped to think what the point of a post that nobody will ever read is?

Thanks. Hope meta will notice that like us really trying hard to get merit. Sometimes, im so strong, that i believing someday it will happens, but most of the time, im so subburn, thinking im not lucky then meta dont recognize us.

And my question how will you force people to give merit, and why people with 80 + post got automatically merit? Someone with -10 trust but with 500+ activity have also many merits. Does it prove that he writes quality posts>??
