I agree with JayJuanGee ideas.
In addition, for interest of waqasniaz007, this is one interesting topic that he/she should read and follow (not only following the topic and its progress over time, but also tracing the progress of Talk merit account). I think it is very interesing to see whether merits Talk merit will earn and how long the account will rank up to next rank (of course, ranks from Member and above).
By following the account, we will have clearer, more transparent view about what's really going on with merit system and users in the forum (especially, their responses to the forum newcomers).
That account is clearly an alt account use to troll newbie, with huge amount of Merit waiting for it to be Merited from his Merit hog account. You are just perpetuating lies, knowing that account is an alt and try to convince people that it will organically be merited

It is a self-declared alt account and there is nothing wrong with that. There is something wrong with being so juvenile as to accuse him of intent to abuse merit with no basis. Grow up.

It is hard to complain about merit system specially when it put control on system abuse, but it require lot of learning for users to understand how merit works. in lack on that, no matter what quality you bring, if your post read by educated person, you might get merit otherwise not possible.

But every good thing comes with drawback and i wish we could do more to educate people how merit works.

Time will answer whether Talk merit can surpass Member rank and higher ones or not. In my opinion, the account will definitely move up. Looking at post-history, most of threads are constructive ones, only few are trolling ones. However, we need it because the forum should not be a serious place all the time, from topics to topics, from threads to threads.

Not only it will rank up, you also can accurately guess who will give merit and what type of post is merited, trying hard to post as many post at Meta to catch the Activity update cut off time is good proof that this will be a troll & spamming account, post not worth reading.

True, people have no clue that there is something called sMerit as well, and some think spending sMerit will take away their merits.
Seriously majority don't have any clue of this new system.

Agree on this.
As per rule: 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.
Some people are looking in "If someone sends you 1 merit, the 0.5 sMerit is not wasted; it is just not shown until you get another merit point."
that is why they are not giving merit to other people cause they're waiting to make it a whole for themselves. Wink

Because most of members are not going to spend time reading abour the rules, they thus dont care much, it definitely leads the merit system which helps highlight good members will not work properly.

on another view, one will refuse to use their merits which very hard to earn, in order to make other be better, and lower their own " intelectual "

just my opinion.

You are missing a point!
There are merit sources, who often give their sMerits away; and prestigious, generous, knowledgeable users who often do it, too. So it's not strange if Talk merit earn merits from them.
However, you are right at the following point. Meta board is the place which catch attention and vistited by lots of users in the forum, particularly high ranked users. So joining the board, contribute to the board will increase probability to earn merits.

I also didn't know much until i got through all those FAQ threads, which newbies usually dont read.
Looks like it'll be better to show sMerit stat just under Merit in profile, so people would try to figure out, what that number is

I will be calling that merit begging.. you fuck...  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes  perhaps not "excessive begging" but makes you ineligible to receive merit from me, at least in the short term.   Tongue Tongue... and if you reform your merit begging ways, then I may reconsider the possibility of giving your merit.. perhaps?, somewhere down the road.. several months later...  

 But likely no one is going to get any merit from me, personally, unless I see something that stimulates me into wanting to give merit..... For example, provide some interesting content.. share some interesting ideas.. add a little humor... or other kind of insight that causes me to learn about the world or about bitcoin or some other pertinent part of my then expected life...

Your post quality after a quick browse doesn’t look bad at all. You’ve obviously just been unlucky, keep up your current posting style & you won’t be far off getting a couple of Merit points soon.

Merits and sMerits are not the same thing. Awarding sMerit does not diminish your merit score, or affect your ranking block.

I don't think your thread is constructive, helpful, or useful, and of course, non-deserved merits. Why you published the thread with lots of basic information which everyone (not lazy users) can get in the OP of the topic (Theymos stated very clear in the OP).
If you only posted the thread to get activity-count, it's good for you; but looks like a spam in several aspects.

My suggestion for you is, start by helping people in need in your local board, there are so many potential merit giver there and all the moderators of the local board are also a merit sources too, so using your own language and a high quality posts, you can increase the chance of yourself getting merit from others.

But, as i see your posts, i think it is a hard task to achieve, but it is not impossible if you start to learn about things (bitcoin and cryptocurrency).

His post quality doesn't look bad, because he has been plagiarizing stuff?  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
One thing that introduction of merit has done is bring out the greed in lazy posters - they want to get merit and rank up immediately.

Calling Bitcoin the 'biggest bubble in human history', eminent economist Nouriel Roubini predicted that the virtual currency - currently on a tailspin that erased nearly $500 billion of market value over the past month - will crash to zero value.
Roubini, also known as 'Dr Doom' for accurately predicting the 2008 financial crisis warned that some people would use a market manipulation tactic known as wash trading to prop up the price.
Wash trading in the crypto world involves someone buying and selling their own order to manipulate markets.
A professor of economics at Stern School, part of the New York University, Roubini has been sceptical about Bitcoin since its inception, calling it a "gigantic speculative bubble."
