first....I don't want your merit...you have obviously missed the entire point of my stupid-ass rantings
second....pls do not drag suchmoon into this...suchmoon has awarded me merit where I do not feel like a "suck-ass" receiving it
third...this is not anger...this is what it looks like when a contrary opinion butts heads w/ arbitrary power from a central authority....o my god.....could we get any closer to an analogy of crypto??

edit: (to make you happy).....I give up now, you win

re-edit:...young man??...I learned about computers on the timex Sinclair and the trs-80....cant believe I missed that

re-re-edit:....I look back and see nothing but examples of you shitting on the lowly ones since the power was bestowed upon you....shame, sir

I was just told over and over that I wouldn't be getting merit because of my attitude...
Who told you this?  The reason I ask is because that's generally an untrue statement--you can be contrary till your heart's content, but your contrarian thoughts had better be written in proper English.  And formatted properly.  What you wrote here is kind of a jumbled mess of words that aren't structured into sentences.  Normally this is something I'd probably just skip over.  

I had to look, because I swear I left you merit before.  I guess I didn't.  But I've left merits for people who've vehemently disagreed with me, and I have no problem doing so.  It's the scammers and shitposters who aren't going to get merited (from me).  You've already earned more merits than a lot of members of your rank, and that's because you can write English fairly well.  You just need to clean it up a little, and that's only my opinion.  You are free to do what you want and argue with whoever you want.

edit:  and I would like to know your opinion of the point I mentioned above about the guy w/ a 95 day old account w/ merit of 104...mostly for posting about the merit system over the course of 60 days...which is 1.73 merit points per day...thanks
I wasn't talking about you, and I don't know why you took this so personally.  *Oh, wait, I had to read further and recall blasting you for that quote*

What you wrote was total nonsense, and it sounded like the generic shitposts these idiots keep writing to satisfy quotas.  You'll have to excuse me if your irony/sarcasm/whatever sailed over my head, because I don't know who you are yet.  It's not the first time I've shot off my mouth without first saying hello.

I don't have an opinion about the 104-merit-guy, because I haven't looked at his profile yet.  Is there a link that I'm missing?  But I would point out that some people can be brilliant writers, like nullius, and they can earn merit very quickly.  That's super-rare, though.  More often than not, when you have a guy with that much merit and that much activity, it's a consummated merit trade.  People know how much merit is worth and they're stingy with it.  There's no way in hell that a typical shitposter is going to be given merits UNLESS he bought them or it's a friend or alt account.  That much I'm sure of.

holy shit...holy shit...I cant believe I missed this one....sorry folks...it doesn't end....seriously....you don't read the thread and your passing out merit??....ok...I will be kind...the account is "sncc"....post #4007....104 merit points in 60 days for posting shit about merit....the monster you have created...its not a merit trade...its just blowing smoke up the ass of someone who has been given power

edit:  I realize I am getting to be a bit much.....getting the picture?

I propose to introduce another type of merit, which would be an alternative to the current one, it is participation in the financing of new projects that place here information about the project and collect on ICO. business merit, which is awarded for the financing of one project, so that ICO can give no more than 500(or otherwise) merits to its first investor participants in the  forum, no more than one merit per participant. this could enable the forum to address several issues on the merits and advancement of the forum participants.

business angels forum will be known and will be known for their contribution to the development of the crypto world.

What a stupid idea from Senior member? I guess you suggested the one because you are not able to earn any merit about 3 months after the launch of merit system. This fact tells us everything, lol.

this says only that there are different people and different approaches to life do not measure all your mind.(98 looked through your posts and found no one worthy of merit. others have decided that they are worthy and that is their opinion which takes place to be)

now known only to writers, but will become a well-known business angels, readers of the forum and people collecting info on the forum for investment in interesting projects.

Yeah, you should have right attitude about merit system and new rank requirements. It will help you to feel more comfortable when dealing with harder ranking requirements after the launch of merit system. You can not do anything (including learning new knowledge, helping others, sharing your experiences, etc.) if you keep such negative thoughts about merit system.
That's my general recommendations for you.
I was just told over and over that I wouldn't be getting merit because of my attitude...nothing at all to do with the validity of my ideas (which proved my point)...
There are lots of massive merit farmers, merit abusers have been found and punished with permanently bans from forum moderators. That's final destination for abusers. If they abuse the system, some day they will be punished for sure.
the bottom line is that we now have a system than can easily be abused and is SANCTIONED by the powers that be...

No one can stop you (at least with current rules of the forum) to keep creating shitty-threads, topics about merit-related issues. However, you should remember that you will get nothing by doing this. It is simply take your time for non-sense.
what is to stop me from opening a new account...going to the merit-related threads...and posting kiss-ass comments about the merit system??...
I understand your feelings, how hard it is. I almost rank up to Senior Member level, but due to amazing effect of merit system, I have been stucked at Full Member rank. Nevertheless, I strongly support merit system, which will help to build up the forum as better place for clean discussions, wipe out most of shitty-threads (mainly come from spammers, farmers, etc.)
The period of time required for a Newbie to become Senior member is around 250 days with old ranking system (250 acitivities equal to 250 days). That means newcomers will have more than 8 months to collect 250 merit points to meet requirements of new ranking system. 8 or 9 months are long enough for such a difficult task. I don't say it is easy, but it is possible.

Good luck, fella.
I will be a full member by the end of summer...easy...and what makes you think that the sock puppets have not already figured that out??


do you honestly believe that nobody can learn or help others without a healthy respect for the merit system??...really?..seriously...an adult actually posted that idea...wow, you people make it so easy...this thread should be closed just to keep any 8 yr olds from stopping by and embarrassing most of you...

I registered at the forum after the introduction of merits and is very upset that I did not register before and did not actively participate here.
Now it seems to me that I will always remain in the rank of Jr. Member, since it is very difficult to get an honest measure.

I think this did not inspire people to create quality posts - all in a jiffy became traders in accounts and merit.

You should not waste your time on people who thinks he is right about everything and always mocking a system where it can help something to be better although the system is not perfect.

Click that ignore button, done.

I like you, fella.
Yeah, done. Thanks for your nice tutorial, which save my time and help me won't feel annoying in the future.

Yeah, you are welcome. I start doing this ignore thing since i have seen some high ranked people ignore other who can only whining about merit yet they are not doing something to make theirself better. It will save us a lot of time and emotion, and save us from meritting wrong person in the future.

Having a high rank doesn't necessarily mean users should have more credibility or be taken as examples. Ignoring someone just because their point of view is different than yours may not be a good idea, you may find yourself only confronted with opinions that you agree with and may become quite closed to any different opinion.

Do you think that there will be any update of the merit system? Or is there any possibility that merit system will be deleted?

I think the first is unlikely and the second is extremely unlikely. The system seems to be working as intended and other than continuing to add merit sources I don't expect to see any changes.

Right! We should have two-sides, open-minded, neutral point-of-view in any situation. If we won't, we might fall into subjective arguments.

So, I had to be more active in the past, my fail. Hope that in future wont be hard to get merit, I see many threads where people asking for merit, because they think that they are posting good content..

If you have been involved in Bitcoin since 2013 then you probably know something about it and have something to contribute to the forum. The forum's purpose is to be a place for Bitcoin enthusiasts to meet and discuss relevant topics. If that's what you are here for then a) rank will not matter and b) you'll soon start getting Merit.

I don't think merit is working entirely as intended*, but ad hominem attacks tend to not be terribly effective at converting someone to your cause. Then again, I'm not obsessed with ranking up, either; about the only benefit I care about is finally being able to wear my favorite forum avatar for this username (Banksy' "Star Wars Pulp Fiction").



* - mainly in that certain subfora seem to be all but ignored by merit sources, despite having a higher than average signal-to-noise ratio; e.g. - altcoins\mining is not nearly as afflicted by sig-campaign shitposters as the other altcoins subfora (or even the bitcoin subfora, from what little I've observed), but few posts are receiving merit.

That's equally true of the Bitcoin mining section which is disappointing as mining an area that people will get involved when they first get interested in Bitcoin and crypto. It really needs someone from those areas to step forward and apply to become a Merit source.

I am open to any point of view, but i am not open to any kind of harsh and rude word and attitude. You can deny other opinion politely, no need to bring any anger or rude word.

First of all, I don't understand what you mean If your thought is merit farming from alt account maybe that's possible happen.
As of now don't burden your self with merit on how to get just focus on how to make a quality post or how to build a post that good in English. Maybe that's the reason even a single smerit you don't have.
Forget the smerit reply on genuine topics that you can share a good idea, not on megathread, who knows there is someone who likes your post and give you smerit.

What I try to do is not pay too much attention to the way the message is delivered and focus on the content. Even if an argument is presented in a harsh way, if it makes sense then it's worth considering. I agree this may be difficult, especially in face-to-face conversations, in written communication it can be managed more easily I guess.

I don't even look at how much merit i have or don't have. I have never posted to simply gain rank either and never will. If you post only to get merit or further your rank than you need to re-evaluate yourself because it's a waste of your time.  Why would you roll like that in the 1st place? The rank has no difference, newbie can still post and read everything i can and jr member (which you don't even need merit or anything much to attain) can enter most bounty campaigns so what is the big deal with merit? Business as usual if you ask me. I use bitcointalk to gain trading knowledge and learn about new coins and events in the crypto world. Why is it that humans always form social hierarchies with ranks and levels anyhow, and than the masses want to conform to these systems?
