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.
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?

Do we have to find a source and report our posts to get sime merits??

Yah. Its there any chance for us to have merited? 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?
I agree with you, the rank now is too hard to reach higher if we only newbie (low rank and few knowleadge)

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.

Yes, I think like you too. Newbie and Jr.member most don't have merit to send.

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?

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.

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.

Hope, i can make it what your trying to point in. And hope so, in my next post, meta will recognize it.

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>??

The only automatic merit was based on rank at the time the system was introduced as detailed in the OP of this thread (hint leaning to read the OP of a thread before posting is the 1st step to getting merit). That was done as a process of transition from one system to another.

The merit earned since then only proves that someone with sMerit to spend thought a post worthy of merit, it is not a gauge of quality. Someone who is untrustworthy might well be able to write worthwhile posts, that has nothing to do with whether you would want to trade with them.

I think that come from last year, when people can get high rank when they do a lot of post. You can't force people to give you merit, the only thing you can do is answer to anyone don't know something or creat high quality post to receive the merit. From this year, I belive that anyone can rank higer must make high quality posts. I think we should learn a lot to make good topic, then we can receive the merit too.
Trully, I struck on Member rank this year because I don't have enough merit Smiley so I try more to reach Full member.

You can create a great and helpful topic in your local board. Based on how you construct your post, sticking on the local board is the best thing I can say to you.
A thread is viewed by everyone and not only based on your rank, you can't filter a thread just for Jr. Rank Members. If you create a great topic, don't expect that someone will be giving you a merit since not all of the members of these forum are interested and find your post constructive and worthy of merit.

And if I Merit someone, the merit of me is descrease?

Giving your sMerit does not "decrease" your Merit.

I just don't know if this is a good step towards the future of this forum, but there is one problem with this system.
Most of the helpful post go unnoticed by most of the users. And the one's who find it helpful aren't able to merit it because they simply can't.

I'm even doubtful if the creator of this thread will notice this post looking at the number of replies already to this post. This is the problem which needs to be taken care of. I hope someone could put some light on this.

Same sentiments. Most of the users who have high merits are bounty managers who successfully paid them bounty team. Some good quality post are often ignored. Lol why.

So merits works liek karma in reddit. But as for me, this is not that much of a good "system". Smiley

The thing is even if you did give a high quality reply or  post, if it doesn't get that much attention , you won't get any. Smiley

Plus, you can't just let your merits stay there? woah, thats abit bad.

What is the basis of the claim ? Have you made this conclusion just based on your own posts not getting any merits. Now go to merit stats page and you will  find that a lot of members are getting merits including newbies and junior members. You need to compare your posts with those merited posts to find out the reason for not being able to get some merits.

I am sure that admin must have gone through some of the replies in the official thread. He replied to some of these but that was for initial posts. He is a very busy guy and has to look after other features of this forum.
