I think that the system could works but need to be a little bit rebalanced: there are not too much merit source in the local community forums also many high ranks do not give merits to people that really deserve them. Ok it is up to us to decide if a post deserve a merit or not but we should encourage people to do better also when they explain a thought that can be different from the one we have.

Also I think the difference between Activity and Merit (in terms of amount) should be leveled. It is very and very difficult to get merits instead of activity so I think the amount of merits people have to receive should be lowered a little bit compared, as said before, to activity.


Maybe but in the end it takes more than a year to become a hero member if i'm not mistaken, 16 months to be precise, so even though it's hard to get merits, it's just as hard to ever reach the activity needed. I personally think that people who receive a lot of merits should get extra smerits to send. For example if you receive 30 merits this month, you should get 30 smerits instead of 15.

Well it is very difficult to earn merit. I got 27 merit in more than 2 months: this probably because in the local forums many people do not have an higher rank (I talk in particular about the Italian community) and therefore there are not a lot of merit source. Many people cannot provide merits at all because they are Junior Member or Member, so they just have few.
You need to post in the international section to get merits but it appears it does not help anyway, considering good post are being provided but merits are not received.

Let's hope someone will consider them in the next days Smiley

Indeed it is difficult but it is not impossible. you are doing very great compared to other members in the forum.

That is the problem with local people, maybe they are here only for money or they dont want to improve their english so they cant talk in international board, so the chance of they are getting merit is lower than people who are roaming to all board of the forum. It is considered already by admin and other established member to add more merit sources, but the thing is, does your local board has established members who has the ability to distinguish good and bad post? If your local board has it, they can apply themself to be a merit sources by finding 10 great posts and post it as a thread in meta section.

In addition to activity, everyone now has a merit score, and you need both a certain activity level and a certain merit score in order to reach higher member ranks. The required scores are:

RankRequired activityRequired merit
Brand new00
Newbie10
Jr Member300
Member6010
Full Member120100
Sr. Member240250
Hero Member480500
LegendaryRandom in the range 775-10301000

You get merit points when someone sends you some for one of your posts. Additionally, when someone sends you merit points, half of those points can be sent by you to other people.

Certain users are designated as "merit sources". They can create new merit out of nothing, up to a limited number per month (which differs per source). I will not be posting a definitive list of merit sources (so that people don't bug them too much), though you'll soon figure out who they are if you pay attention.

There is currently no such thing as a "demerit". I'm hoping that the positive merits alone will be fine. I could add demerits pretty easily later on if necessary, though.

I'm hoping that this system will increase post quality by:
 - Forcing people to post high-quality stuff in order to rank up. If you just post garbage, you will never get even 1 merit point, and you will therefore never be able to put links in your signature, etc.
 - Highlighting good posts with the "Merited by" line.

While we will not be directly moderating this, I encourage people to give merit to posts that are objectively high-quality, not just posts that you agree with.

Do not beg for merit excessively.

Useful infographics

Forum users have helpfully created some infographics to explain the merit system:
paxmao's infographic
ibminer's infographic
8Habits's infographic
JetSet11's infographic
zentdex's infographic
alia_armelle's infographic

If you want to be a merit source:

 1. Be a somewhat established member.
 2. Collect TEN posts written in the last couple of months by other people that have not received nearly enough merit for how good they are, and post quotes for them all in a new Meta thread. The point of this is to demonstrate your ability to give out merit usefully.
 3. We will take a look at your history and maybe make you a source.

I am especially eager to have merit sources in sub-communities such as the local sections.

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. A Legendary member who hasn't posted in the last year would still be Legendary, but would not have any spendable merit.

If someone sends you 1 merit, the 0.5 sMerit is not wasted; it is just not shown until you get another merit point.

There are stats here, and you can find someone's merit summary by clicking the "merit" link on their profile.
The information you provide is useful for newcomers to bitcointalk. I can translate this article into my native language. I will bring interesting to those who do not know this information.

If you want to achieve merit then you have to contribute to some project. if good they will bring merit to you.
If you have sympathy with anyone, you also have to give them some merit.

You sir are superhuman to me! The scenario for my profile vs your profile is completely vice-versa.

I am just a human the same as you, besides, there are many people who got more merits than me. You can do it too by engaging and making a quality post. Have dignity and increase your self quality.

Actually I do (you can check my posts, good? Bad? Feedback is highly appreciated), but only in few projects that I am involved in.

Can you tell some child forums where you have got your merit points the most? Thanks.

Hi sir. I am new in bitcointalk and need your help. I want to ask about first presence of merit system. I mean, as bitcointalk user i have 0 merit for the beginning, and i think other user have 0 merit too. So, How could user get merit for the first? Is merit bought from someone or from system? Or merit is given from the beginning of merit system. For example, before merit system's appearance i already Member rank. Since there are new system and i know there are minimum number of merit needed based on rank. I am given merit as much 10 (because my rank is member)?
Thank you

when they give merit. Members will earn bonus points corresponding to their rank. And that point we can not bring merit. You need to have merits for you to reach the next level.

your question is qouted in the first page of this thread, however if youre not feeling it to read i’l answer you in summarized and not complicated explaination, you can obtain merit by making a good quality post in any thread, do not spam, and try to be constructive and informative in your post, in that way people in the forum will give you a merit, where is the easiest way to earn merit? its good to post or reply in your own native language in local boards in that way you can express and can contruct good quality post and helpful to others, but if youre already good at english you can do it in any sections in this forum. i hope that it will help you.  Wink

If i understand the rules correctly, we suppose to get the half of our merit to send to the forum memmbers. Am i right? The thing is that i got 6 merit points to spend.. instead of 50. So what do i do to get more receivable points? Is becoming a merit source the only way to get the points? Thanks in advance.

Go back and read the OP again. The initial distribution of Merit was based on rank, the initial distribution of sMerit was based on your activity in the last year. I got 250 Merit and only 22 sMerit. Then you get 0.5 sMerit for every 1 Merit you have been awarded since the system was introduced.

sMerit = spendable Merit.

What is techie? Do you mean someone with a lot of tech knowledge? If it is yes, you are not required to be a techie to get a merit. You just need to be more engaged and connected to the forum. Being a techie is a plus side if you can, and you dont need to be a good techie, just in bitcoin and crypto things.

Learn, you still can. There are lot of things can be learned in the internet about bitcoin and crypto. You can use youtube,read news, or other platform. And you can come to this thread too to learn things https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2968050.0

Unfortunately, you will not be given any merit only because you need it. You should not take any shortcut also if you want to level up just like some scammers are trying to. This will result in your account getting negative trust or banned which will make the account completely useless.

I will suggest you to remain patient and keep making good posts. Also, try to act smarter and post things like infographics or other detailed tutorials to help members.
