What, like sending 8 merit to the shining star of erudition reprinted below?

Hey guys i really like the iddea behind the blockchain and i was looking for some compainies which try to sell ´the blockchain´and i think IBM would be a nice stock to pick, if you want to invest in the blockchain. Aswell IBM is trying to creat an Super Intellent pc with watsson. This in combination is just enormous. What dou you guys think about such an idea in investing in stocks which try to create an blockchain ?

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.

this is a quality topic that we can understand. easy in the clear.karna now for m
get merit more difficult. because merid can not be bought with altcoin / eth.kemampuan us to get his reward, because this is a new rule. in bitcointalk forums. I think this is a good rule.

This is a bit like the old investment trust scam. A guy started an investment trust on the premise that by investing in investment trusts, investments would be more secure. All it did was to introduce another level of charges, as most investment trusts invest in the same stocks, so you aren't spreading the investment risks.

So how does that relate to merits? There are only a few posts that are merit worthy, by increasing the numberof merit sources, all you will do is to increase the number of merits chasing the same posts. The real solution is to improve the quality of posting,and this is why I have tried to start some English language improvement projects.

Even though i dont have a great english skills, i do the same for you, i made a thread in my local board and asking them to join my telegram group to learn and talk in english, so they can improve their english and it will benefited them in real life and in forum, but there are not many people who are willing to improve i guess, i only have 37 members up rill now.

For people who are not familiar with english, i suggest to try some language learning apps which available in android or IOS, i suggest duolingo for my local board people. It is easy and fun, and can improve the basic of our english significantly. By learning english, at least the chance to get merit is increases.

Here are some tips if you want to earn some merit, and you don't want to find yourself in the ignore lists.

Tip No.1  - Don't quote great long posts with facts that we all know. It clogs up the thread.

Tip No. 2. - If you don't have something worthwhile to add to the thread, then don't post.

Tip No. 3 - Work on your English, I'm still not sure what you were trying to say in your post.

Another one like this member coming from my country, using english via google translate and post it directly in to a post outside local board. Look, i am not good too at english, but what you are doing is unnaceptable and breaking rules of the forum. Broken english is considered fine, but yours are beyond broken, "karna" ? "kemampuan" ?, really man?

There is a BitcoinTalk member what has a "Merit Bounty Campaign". He asks you to put his signature and once a week he will check if your posts were good. And if they were, you get rewarded with Merit.

Do you guys know who that is? Do you have a link to that thread? I searched and searched and searched and couldn't find it anymore..

There are many members who sold merits right now but i dont suggest you cheat the system by buying or trading merit because what comes after that will make you regret it all the time, the same regret as why you did not buy bitcoin long time ago.

There seems to be a black market for it, but you are not allowed to trade merit in any unethical manner. Merit trading, by whatever means, can get your account at least with a bag of negative trust, and likely on the road to being permanently banned if/when caught.

It’s best if you don’t even consider the option and play by the book. Posting such a question with your account immediately puts you on other people's suspect list.

For those abusers, punishments like permanent bans and red tags waiting for them. Never should try abusing any system of the forum, including merit system.

Well said buddy, forgot for a while that merit system instead of helping the forum to lessen spammers and smerit abusers, don't rush your account in fastest way of ranking that may risk your rank and possible to have reg tag. Never buy and sell smerit that was strictly prohibited here you might be a permanent ban or paint with a red mark.

Obey every rule implemented here in the forum by the admin.

Fair enough. I’m actually more interested in giving it away than acquiring. Chicken meet egg.

 But you can not give away merits if you dont acquire any sMerits from people. Do you really get the basic of this merit system? Please read again the OP.

It is difficult to decipher but I'm going with his question makes no sense because he may have quoted the whole OP but he didn't bother reading it. He probably gave his alt friend the one and only sMerit he got in the initial distribution and doesn't know he isn't getting any more.

I think I understood what he means... which makes me worry about myself lol Grin
Maybe he wanted to send more than 1 merit to his friend but for some reason he could only send 1. Looking at his profile he seems to have sent only 1 merit.
I was not a Member rank when this system striked us like he is and I was not given free Merits, therefore I'm not sure how many sMerits he'd have.
