Merit is decreasing week after week
Weekly decrese 20% (more than bitcoin! Grin)
Do you think this is just because Merit source has no more points?

Merit sources get their smerits replenished. So you do not have to worry about merit sources.
The numbers were expected to decrease, because the initial air-dropped smerits would eventually run out. The smerits generated by merit sources is 17,8000/month (which is lower than what is being currently given out).

There are 80 merit sources with a total merit generation of up to 17800 sMerit per 30 days

Hi SIR athanz88
I think it is fool merit or funny merit PLEASE
Regards SIR

(I love that day loooooooooool)


Hi sir InvoKing, that is a good word for the f on fMerit, i really like your idea, keep up the good work and you will get that fMerit. Remember, just do contribution and do not think about that fMerit, you will surely get it in the future. One thing to be remembered, dont make any thread about merit or fMerit that has been discussed over and over.

best regards sir.

I agree with Sir InvoKing. Fools Merit was the first thing that came to my mind.

In my opinion, this is an April Fools joke from admin. April Fools is a wide known tradition in this world, and i believe it is known globally, not only in one country, but if this system is true, i will be shocked hard.

I don't think it is entirely global which accounts partly for the large number of people not getting it. Then there are those who will always be fooled. I'm enjoying how many are asking what the f in fMerit stands for  Wink
All of them, including Imagination, Politeness, Virtue, Karma, Coins, fmerits have not shown in my profile.
Another plus signal is I have not seen Theymos launched something without detailed announcement about its mechanism.
Combined all of them, I believe we have witnessed big joke.
Congratulations, take it easy and enjoy fun.

Oh, there's a detailed announcement and full instructions to calculate if you will rank up. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3232693.0

I was so confused, came back after a short hiatus and saw Karma and politeness, I guess Theymos has had enough of the crazy ALL CAPS color trolls - I think I like this new change  Grin

Edit: nvm, as soon as I posted it went back to the old, got me for sure

is there a Russian translation of this topic? I think that the introduction of graphs is measuring, will start a new era of cheating on the forum. people will ask each other in private messages to put them to merit

Yeah lets see after this holiday week if we get back at 8k-7k weekly.

It's perfectly fair to new people . That must be demanded you have to write high-quality posts, rather than just spam a bunch of worthless stuff. Everyone has to write high-quality posts. It would be very hard for us now to rank up but we must adopt this great new system to maintain the quality here in forum.
We must be very fair in terms of giving merits, and I do hope this new system will works fine in the long run.

Thanks for the figure of total sMerits generated each month, Sir botany (just kidding because I love the Politeness point of new new rank system, which has gone after 1st of April).
In my opinion, real constructive users in the forum don't have to worry about lack of sMerits in circulation. Of course, sMerits are scarce, but they are enough to give away to deserved users.

I believe its really fair if merits go to people as their activity level increases in the forum and i also think it can be used to help people to rank up as well. There are so many people who dont have merits but has a high activity level

Please stop asking free gifts, airdroped merits, my friend. You have got 10 merits due to airdroped merits for the launch of merit system. I think  those points are enough for you. You can only earn more points if you contribute something helpful to the forum, which I don't see with your last thread.

Keep improving your post quality and contribute to the forum, guy.

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.


Thanks for this efforts. 

Merit is so difficult to earn, merit is like a gold. That's why all higher ranks are already have more merits that they give to others that they want merit also. But sometimes other members selling their merit instead of giving. And I think it is unfair! because someone who deserves to earn merit are being useless because of this scenario.

It is sadly to think.

I'am agree. I already incounter members selling merit worth 100$ to 10$ per merit. Thats the saddest part of this rule hard to get merit because they dont give you free merit.

So you have a suspicion that there are sMerit hoarders who are patiently waiting for higher bitcoin price?
Likely yes, but Theymos can easily "decay" all sMerit when Merit-trading get uncontrollably obvious.

~
There are 80 merit sources with a total merit generation of up to 17800 sMerit per 30 days
-snip-
Of course, sMerits are scarce, but they are enough to give away to deserved users.
17,800 sMerit in every month from the sMerit sources are just the basement (or initial) source.
Remember that members who got merited twice will gain 1 spendable merit.
With that, that number is almost too much for every deserving members (especially Jr.s) of this forum, given that sMerit sources are reviewing the poster's Sent Merit list for a possible hoarding activity.

BTW, the number of users are closing to 2,000,000!
And we don't want the 80% of it which are bots, alts and scammers to rank up, yes?

I am not sure about the figure of total forum member you shown, but most of us don't want spammers, alt-accounts to rank up. It is the main reason why Theymos launched merit system.
The system might not stop all spamming threads, particularly in the shadow places of the forum. Nevertheless, the system might stop spammers to rank up, collect evidence to add red trust on farming accounts, abusers (might ban them all).

Merit is decreasing week after week

Weekly decrese 20% (more than bitcoin! Grin)

Do you think this is just because Merit source has no more points?

That is an excellent point and argument that i support fully too, looks like the sMerits are getting drained out, we need some more ways to earn merit points on this forum or may be some other parameters like those that were introduced on April fool day, so everyone gets a chance to rank up based on one parameter or other.

The only sMerits that are getting drained out are the airdrop ones that were given to everyone based on their activity in the last year. theymos has been increasing the sMerit given to sources to compensate for this and soon you will see that chart flatten out. This was the intention and not is not a problem.

or may be some other parameters like those that were introduced on April fool day, so everyone gets a chance to rank up based on one parameter or other.

You might have missed the main part of the joke. Ranking up on the April Fools system was completely random  Cheesy

??
No, it's really a simple thought process. New month, new "free sMerit" given to merit sources, more new merit/sMerit for users. So the week must have more Merit overall.

today - yes it took so long - i found out / or realised out what i like most about the merit system.
i dont have to answer to posting i lik. i just can sent 1 merit instead.
this makes topics shorter and it saves me some time.

unfortunately is does not really help preventing spam i think.

Also, users do not know concept of smerit, majority dont understand this still.
I think if we want to keep merit system beneficial for genuine people, we should do something.
I this original purpose to stop forum abuse is already met in term of restricting spammers, so now time to educate people to make it friendly feature.
I do not see people using their sMerit.
