It seems as though the generosity of giving out merits have died down quite a bit.  I don't know if it's cause those that are already holding high ranks don't care for the system or feel it's not worth their time to give out merits.  It is a very difficult task to earn merits these days, just like solo mining bitcoins. 
I think the merit system has to be changed. If not some people never gets merit points.

The fact that some people will never get Merit points is one of its great successes. Looking at your post history you are the type of user that should never rank up.

I am also very sad with new system, that a lot of months after beeing implemented gave reason to my predictions.
That was only created to keep the status of hero and legendary memebers in order to mantain higher ranks at bounties, and earn big stakes.

Begging for Merit is against the rules, you can be happy if you don't get negative trust for that question. It's hard to earn Merit - the only possible way is to improve your posts.

There is no way to earn merit under the current system.  Stop deluding yourselves.  The merit system here works EXCLUSIVELY FOR THE HIGH RANKING members.  Most of the senior members here are somewhat jaded and do not have time to look around for interesting posts, because hardly anything interests these people more - except maybe another bounty announcement where Senior members get 1000% more than Jr. Members, for example.

To make giving out merit an optional thing provides zero motivation for current members to give it out, and leaves the system in a state where no one ever advances.  The proof is in the pudding.  It's become a farce.

This leads to a small group of folks in control over a large group, incentivizing the hoarders to remain hoarders, particularly when the trend in airdrops and bounties is to reward higher members with such lopsided rewards compared to Jr. Members.

Like it or not, the merit system here is in no way egalitarian, and fosters a divide amongst the majority against a small minority.

There is the distinct air of superiority coming from most of the higher up members here and nothing you can say will change that.  Most members above the Jr. rank act like their shit doesn't stink simply because you got some merit colluding with other members.

Just the fact the Bitcointalk.org membership is swollen with Jr. Members says it all.  I personally do not care one way or another but think it is a riot that senior members around here are so spiteful of members below their ranks and go to great lengths to defend their lopsided position.

Granted, there are many spam accounts and other nefarious things going on, but the forum is ignoring a vast pool of knowledgable Jr. Members with it's merit system.  This is an unsustainable path to take for long-term growth.

Don't take my word for it.  Just keep doing what you are doing.  Other forums will come along and supplant this one, because this one is becoming more like an exclusive club for a small percentage of its members rather than an idea to promote the next paradigm in currencies.

Change your ways, Bitcointalk.

Edit:  And this post is a good post worthy of at least one merit point - the points are clearly stated, and it is similar to the opinion of thousands of Jr. Members.  My point is I won't receive any merit for this post because it attacks the ones responsible for delivering merit points.  Thus proving the merit system here is not about rewarding intelligent posts, but instead to keep Jr. Members in their places.  LOL!

I'd give you a merit for your post here, but unfortunately I don't have any smerits.  It's not that I agree with everything you wrote, but at least you wrote your argument coherently, unlike many of the foreign fucktards who've posted in this thread recently.  They can stay noobs until their activity reaches 10k+ for all I care, and in fact I hope they do.

Maybe someone with some merit to give will see this and see your post and merit it.  If not, suck it up and move on.  You people who are so concerned about ranking up make me want to puke.  No one gives a shit whether you do or not, because you're only here for a paycheck.  Very few people here respect that.

I agree with you that the post is well substantiated, and has decent arguments, but it has so many absolutes in it, seemingly reverse psychology and so much threatening that I cannot bring myself to merit it... and so far, I have dished out over 500 merits, so in the sending merits, I am not afraid to merit posts, and I don't even require a very high standard as long as I believe that there is some kind of meaningful contribution in the post or the poster.. but I have a hard time meriting posts when posters can't find some balance beyond seeming to whine for the sake of it, or their seemingly self-obsessed focus.

Edit:

I believe that I attempted to explain that I don't think that my merit sending standards are high, and I suppose that my failure/refusal to merit that post demonstrates that sending merits could be whimsical and there is a decent amount of subjectivity in merit sending.. which such subjective discretion is not likely to go away any time soon...  and even some luck of timing could make a difference in whether a post receives merit, too...

Posts in other sections to get merit. Altcoins sections suck. Because it's overrun by bots and half of them are atleast scam icos. A few real people go there.

Also, I don't give more than a merit to people but you made good points. I wanted to give you 10 but decided to save it a little. You can visit here, learn stuff and maybe get more merits, but it ain't a guarantee that you'll : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2968050.msg30499459#msg30499459

That's simply untrue. https://public.tableau.com/profile/ddmrddmr#!/vizhome/BitcointalkMeritDashboard/GlobalSummary

1843 accounts have ranked up from Jr. Member to at least Member.

You put together a good argument but it based on your own experience. As pugman pointed out you exclusively post on boards that most people that have Merit to spend have put on ignore.

From the look of things,legendary members do not need merits anymore.That is to say,it does not affect them in anyway.But they are those that are currently being given the higher number of merits by others. Hardly will you see a newbie or a jnr member being given a merit so far.Well,the merit system just started and we cant jump to conclusion how the trend will be.But i foresee that lower ranked members will struggle to get merits. I must say that this is an important check system that has been put in place,but i see myself being a newbie for another year or two. Grin Grin Grin

You may be right that it's difficult to get merit points for new members. But that is also pretty obvious: If you are new to a topic, it's difficult to write contributions that other people will see as "meritable".

But the good thing is: If you are willing to learn about Bitcoin, then you will write increasingly better post. You will become an increasingly valuable member of the community, even if your rank at first stays low. But then people will give you more merit points and you'll rank up, like more than 1800 accounts have since the merit system was introduced.

I for myself, prefer to give merits to lower-ranked accounts, but if I see something useful written by a Legendary, I'll merit that, too. You can look at my profile and check that.

What I see critical is the low merit circulation we see currently, although the figures in @coinlocket's post indicate that we're probably near the "bottom". Maybe theymos - if he hasn't still - should think about increasing the distribution of merits to merit sources until more merit sources are found.

Unfortunately, he's unlikely to be willing to do that on account of being a copy paste spambot.

 Angry . It seems one has to check every post to determine if it's worth to be answered ... maybe an one-click copy-and-paste checker would be a good "complement" for the Merit system  Roll Eyes Tongue

But my post could as well be interpreted as an answer to @lKSLMNSLKnkndlksnkJ's rant.

Thanks for all the cogent responses.

I didn't mean to rile feathers, but in hindsight I can see that the way I used the words could have done just that.

The comments after my post raise enough good issues to make me realize the subject is much more involved than at first glance.

So, thank you to all the members here for giving your input on the subject.  And, although I think some of the points I made were correct, after reading your responses, I realize I am mostly wrong about the BCT merit system. 

I'm proud to be a member of BCT regardless of my rank, and I want to wish you all the best of luck both now and in the future.

People have been complaining since day 1, nothing new here. It is true that some people deserve zero merits, but it doesn't feel like there are enough merits for the posts that do deserve them. A lot of worthy posts go unmerited, and if you have to find a merit distribution thread to get it, then that is a problem in my humble opinion.
