NOTE:
Last but not the least, if my above post of Suggestions looks like a trash to everyone, then i would highly recommend a Staff to Delete it right-away. It's quite simple, why to unnecessarily drag the conversation over here if that post means useless to everyone.

You can suggest whatever you want, and there are a few levels in which it can be taken, including levels of support.

By the way, bouncing around ideas in this thread may or may not matter, and let's say 99.94% of members are in favor of a certain policy change, yet in the end, theymos owns the forum, so unless he agrees to make the change, the level of support remains one factor and is not necessarily a deal maker/breaker.

Further, just because some members might find what you say to be stupid or unimportant does not mean that it rises to the level of deletion or that you should be banned from the forum for saying it - or executed, for that matter.. hahahahhahaha

Get real, DeepuEzy....  Even if in your mind, you have wonderful ideas, they certainly don't appear to be slam dunks, even if you attempt to present them as such.  There are levels of graduation of whether people agree or disagree with the ideas of others, and generally you are free to make suggestions, even if they are perceived as stupendous by yourself or dumb (non-persuasive) by other members.

Unbelievable.. again ?  Shocked

Largely, it does not fare well to get emotional about posts on the internet.


Can we stop this now?

When you engage in an interactive process on a publicly open thread, you run the risk of many responses, as well as the conversation going in a direction that is beyond your control.

My head is really paining now..  Cry

I have never ever typed such lengthy Post in my life, but you made me do that today..
You can really make a person go mad & even upside down with your post..
You got that talent in you, trust me.. lol..  Grin

Hopefully, you have control over your own reaction... so I am not sure what purpose is present to suggest that anyone else (including me) is causing you to respond, in length?

Jokes apart, on a serious note, i really can't dedicate my life responding to your Quotes again & again, so please stop this now.. it's really a request..

likely to get the opposite reaction, if you are ordering folks around on the interwebs.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

To be very honest, i would have never posted in this Topic, if i knew you were guarding this topic with your life..
I mean seriously..

That is your reading, and seems quasi-irrelevant.


By the way, should i transfer some Bitcoins to you at the Bitcoin Address enlisted in your profile, to stop all this? lol  Tongue

Do what you like.  I don't recall ever getting a donation, and I suppose that would be the first, after several years having various bitcoin addresses listed on my profile.  I would not imagine that any kind of bitcoin payment to my address would have much change on my posting behavior, even though it would be a curious happening from my perspective.  If you were to send me 100 bitcoins, for example, then that could cause quite a dilemma for me, regarding when and how to cash them out... hahahahahaha

Just chill out dude, with all due respect, don't take everything so much deeper into your heart, just chill..

You are repeating yourself with nonsensical barking orders that seem to be beyond your control, which could cause more attention to your genuineness, credibility or integrity rather than mine.

I have a feeling like, you would be running after me holding a knife, if i would have ever met you in person..
#JustKidding

That's crazy, and generally it is not necessary or intended for forum folks to meet in person.  

By the way, there seems to be common sense that there is some difference regarding how people interact in person and how they interact on line, and furthermore, there are some bots among us too, who would have some very difficult times interacting in-person, since they are not persons.

Anyways, thank you so much for your participation with me till now..

That response could be characterized as passive aggressive, no?  Do you know what passive aggressive means?  Are you a bot, DeepuEzy?

Please read this Post as a final response to this and just ignore it..

End of the Chapter..

I will believe it when I see it.   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Oh my goodness, 2 more person..
Too much..

btw, i was actually expecting your response quite earlier itself..
Were you asleep or something until now?
How did it took so long for you to post a comment?

Seems like, as i have already mentioned in my previous Post, the few hand picked people with full of negative attitude have joined hands together & creating a team to do some negative post against me..

Your post is self-explanatory, as my last response was not meant for you, it was clearly for the other user for whom it was even posted as a response, still you got yourself attached to it, that too in a much detailed way, so it's simple that you were asked to post the negative funny comments..

That's really funny, though..

So, are you guys communicating with each other over Skype to do this or it's happening via. ICQ or some other medium ?
lol..

I'm sure you would be gathering more people now, to post something negative against me over here, after-all this is what we can least expect from people like you..

But i feel sad when Legendary Members are supporting each other this way.. instead of reading my First Post and understanding the Positive Side of it..

You guys are Legendary Member, at-least have some Shame and feel Guilty when you post without reading and thinking..
This behaviour doesn't suit you guys..
Don't misuse your High Rank account to post such thing, you will soon regret it someday..

Corruption would never end, whether Online or Offline..

At-least fear God, you can't hide from God after doing all these things..


If ever you start your own Forum in future, you will come to know the issues i was talking about, that time you will realise whatever i said was a indeed fact and not something useless..

I wish someone mature checks my Post in the future and realise this soon..

Until then, keep posting such negative comments and have fun with it, as this is what brings joy in your life Mr. Legendary..
Someday you will surely realise your mistakes and regret..

Anyways, I'm off to bed now..

God save people like you..

The world is out to get you, of course.

When you post on a public forum, you can get responses  from anyone, and such responsive posts might not even be about you, believe it or not.

But i feel sad when Legendary Members are supporting each other this way.. instead of reading my First Post and understanding the Positive Side of it..

You live in lala land if you believe that anyone has time to conspire against you, when you are hardly even known.

I just noticed on one of the merit searching websites that I use that it appears that merits are no longer counted for posts that get deleted.

Is this a change?  If so, was the change announced by theymos or anyone else?

Ultimately, if what I am observing is correct (merits do not get counted from deleted posts), it seems to be a good policy/practice that I had previously thought to be otherwise (I used to believe that merits were not reversible, even if the receiving merit post gets subsequently deleted).

Can you show an example? As far as I know, Merit stays when posts are deleted.
I only know of one case in which theymos returned 150 sMerit that was sent from a hacked account.

Unless it's a merit source that went rogue, in that case theymos  already announced he's willing to undo all source Merit transactions. And that makes me even more curious to see an example.

I only have one example because today was the first time that I had seen such a situation in which it seems that a merit had been given, and then the post was subsequently deleted which caused the merit to no longer be counted in the number received.

You can see it listed in the total merits received here (as 16), but the profile only has 15 merits credit because it appears that the merit of the deleted post was not counted towards current total of merits received.

There's a bug in BPIP:
Hey @Vod, is there any glitch in the merit stats?
Yes, I am hunting down a bug that will sometimes give a merit to the wrong person...  :/
Could this be the cause? Or did you see the number of Merits go down in the profile on Bitcointalk?

The second entrance on the Sent detail (7/24/2018 12:09:54 AM) seems to be wrong since, if you follow the link, it points to a post merited by you but to @infofront on a different date/time.
My account has been off 1 merit for some time now, so there may be a few minor bugs.

Hello , I am unable to understand why people who have very high rank are getting merit for their reply , i am little curious.

What is your opinion?  You believe that smerit should be spent as a charity towards lower ranking members, merely for existing? or to help lower ranked members to bounty hunt or join signature campaigns?

Also, if you believe that there should be some kind of guidance for who and how smerits should be given out, then where does that leave individual member's discretion about when and how to spend their smerits?  

Is there any value to individual member discretion over their own spendable merits?

Actually, if you read a bit more into this thread, including even the first page of this thread, if you attempt to understand the merit system and even some of the motivations for it, then you might be able to formulate your questions a bit better.  

At this point in time, your formulation of your question(s) is NOT very good and comes off as self-interested, "little informed" and seems to attempt to get answers to points that have already been made over and over in this very thread.

Hello , thank you for your answer but i  didn't understand what you meant to say.  Me i joined bitcoin talk forum only after i knew about bounty camp and there were req just to post may be 20 25 words posts in a sig camp and i did only to fulfill the requirement for sig camp. and now when again it is mandatory to get merit i start to look after the topics about merit and it seems it is complicated thing and mostly when i see the posts i saw most cases the member who have very high rank are merited by other member. my opinion is why cannot we just stop signature camp in bitcoin talk ?  is this really necessary for the growth of bitcoin ? will sig camp help investors or startups ? is this step even thinkable or doable in order to control spams for bounty tokens ?

You make little to no sense.

You want to participate in signature and bounty campaigns, but you want the forum to discontinue such practice(s).

Aren't you talking out of both sides of your mouth?

Regarding the understandability of my earlier responsive post, perhaps you should attempt to read it a few more times (and attempt to understand what I am saying therein), rather than spouting out a repetition of your earlier talking point(s) while ignoring nearly every single point that I made in my post.

You seem out of touch and unwilling to either understand the perspectives of other members or to interact with other members, which seems to be evident from your responsive (if we could call it "responsive") post to me, and even from your shitty post history.

Do you have answers to all the questions that i mentioned in my post ? I cant understand how a question that is related to growth of btc doesnot make sense in btc forum itself ?

Before I answer your questions, I'm gonna ask you one thing. What's your true intention of getting here? Is it the mastery of other systems of modern tech or is it just about profit?

Campaign obviously helps the promotion of the project, e.g If you're having an intellectual project with a great team but no one knows about the idea. Do you think the project will reach their goal? even the softest cap is roughly impossible. You know it's a big time opportunity then why limit the factors of reaching the success?

As long as we're gaining ideas about bitcoin, it's a healthy situation. It's not about the growth of the BTC, it's about how will you express the idea/learning and the opportunity of being here in the crypto world.

Does the merits received by the high ranks really affect you? It should be an inspiration for you to improve.

Could this be the cause? Or did you see the number of Merits go down in the profile on Bitcointalk?

The BPIP bug(s) that Vod is hunting down, outlined above, seems to be referring to a different phenomenon from the situation that I described, which is whether merits are subtracted if merited posts are deleted..

It seems that your understanding (LoyceV) and mine are the same.  The merits should not be deleted, so it seems to me that the jury is still out about whether there are circumstances in which merits might be deleted (along with deleted posts) beyond extreme intervention abuse situation that seem to be exceptions and had been previously mentioned, as extreme case exceptions, by theymos.


Here is another view of the merit history, using LoyceV's tool.

BTW, found an bug in the LoyceV's data. It shows that one other post was deleted too, which is not the case.

This iasenko investigation seems to explain the situation - while simultaneously pointing out unresolved bugs of a different nature from the original question.

I see that now that I click on the link.  By the BPIP summary, I had assumed that I had given a merit to ThePunisher49x, but that particular BPIP link does not provide the actual evidence of the actual post that I would have merited ThePunisher49x.  So perhaps I had never merited that particular user?

It could be helpful if the forum were to provide a merit history that goes back more than 120 days in order that we might be able to corroborate that kind of information, if we think it is a relevant factor that we are researching into.

Hello , I am unable to understand why people who have very high rank are getting merit for their reply , i am little curious.

What is your opinion?  You believe that smerit should be spent as a charity towards lower ranking members, merely for existing? or to help lower ranked members to bounty hunt or join signature campaigns?

Also, if you believe that there should be some kind of guidance for who and how smerits should be given out, then where does that leave individual member's discretion about when and how to spend their smerits?  

Is there any value to individual member discretion over their own spendable merits?

Actually, if you read a bit more into this thread, including even the first page of this thread, if you attempt to understand the merit system and even some of the motivations for it, then you might be able to formulate your questions a bit better.  

At this point in time, your formulation of your question(s) is NOT very good and comes off as self-interested, "little informed" and seems to attempt to get answers to points that have already been made over and over in this very thread.

Hello , thank you for your answer but i  didn't understand what you meant to say.  Me i joined bitcoin talk forum only after i knew about bounty camp and there were req just to post may be 20 25 words posts in a sig camp and i did only to fulfill the requirement for sig camp. and now when again it is mandatory to get merit i start to look after the topics about merit and it seems it is complicated thing and mostly when i see the posts i saw most cases the member who have very high rank are merited by other member. my opinion is why cannot we just stop signature camp in bitcoin talk ?  is this really necessary for the growth of bitcoin ? will sig camp help investors or startups ? is this step even thinkable or doable in order to control spams for bounty tokens ?

You make little to no sense.

You want to participate in signature and bounty campaigns, but you want the forum to discontinue such practice(s).

Aren't you talking out of both sides of your mouth?

Regarding the understandability of my earlier responsive post, perhaps you should attempt to read it a few more times (and attempt to understand what I am saying therein), rather than spouting out a repetition of your earlier talking point(s) while ignoring nearly every single point that I made in my post.

You seem out of touch and unwilling to either understand the perspectives of other members or to interact with other members, which seems to be evident from your responsive (if we could call it "responsive") post to me, and even from your shitty post history.

Do you have answers to all the questions that i mentioned in my post ? I cant understand how a question that is related to growth of btc doesnot make sense in btc forum itself ?

Who gives a ratt's ass about your questions?  


By the way, finaleshot2016 has already provided you more than enough of a response to your stupidity and lack of attempt at thinking about the matter.

Largely, you already have proven yourself to be a disingenuous shit stirrer who fails and refuses to appreciate or recognize the past practice of the forum or its value  - and that remains discretionary and historical, and you don't just make or suggest major discretionary changes without first appreciating the dynamics of the practice that you are criticizing and whining to change.  

Perhaps attempting to work within the system first and then attempting to make meaningful suggestions from that striving for knowledge and perspective rather than coming in as a newbie proposing some kind of radical revolution and acting as if you are providing innovative insight, when you are not.

smerits do not get destroyed (or decay) for regular members unless the member is a merit source member. 

Currently, there are only 120 merit source members.  See this link:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;stats=sources

Merit source members have to spend their source smerits every 30 days in order to regenerate more source smerits.  If they do not spend their source smerits within 30days, then the source merits will not regenerate until 30 days after they spend their smerits.

It would be helpful indeed, but theymos decided against it. I guess it's meant to prevent very large data dumps in the future.
Several users (including me) keep track of the full Merit history.

There is at least one system that does that, I'm quoting the original post.
I remember I had found another site, with a more use-friendly UI but I couldn't find it in my bookmarks, sorry!

I was in doubt: should this be in Meta or Reputation?

The forum only shows a Merit summary for the past 120 days. I've created the full history (up to theymos' last data dump, which updates on Friday) for all users. Merit abuse hunters may like this.

Update (22-6-2018):
Visit http://loycevsbasement.privatedns.org/Merit/history/459836.html for my full history. Change the userID to any other user that has either received or sent merit. Each user mentioned on the link has a link to his own history, so you can quickly "walk around".

Code:
http://loycevsbasement.privatedns.org/Merit/history/userID.html
I'll do weekly updates for the users that received merit that week.

Instead of manually entering the link, you can also find them here:
theymos' data (human readable format, including usernames and post titles) (currently 35 MB)
Usernames to go with theymos' data (currently 6 MB)


Update (29-6-2018):
I've added graphs to each user's Merit history. These are mine:
Merit sent by LoyceV:
Image loading...
Merit received by LoyceV:
Image loading...

Each column width is 5 days (10 pixels). "Days" start the second the first Merit was transfered, and count exactly 5*3600*24 seconds after that. It has nothing to do with calendar days in any time zone
The maximum is 100 Merit per column (2 pixels per Merit). If more than 100 Merit was transfered in a 5 day period, the top of the column gets darker.
It still needs something on the axes.




(the rest of this post is outdated)
Just use this format to post, and I'll post that user's full merit transaction history ASAP:
Code:
BitcointalkUserID:NUMBER
Replace "number" by the userID. I used to have my own userID as an example, but Piggy's quote was picked up by my scraper.
Note: output data gets quite large, so only one userID per request please.
Anyone not following the correct format will be ignored!
My scraper will process each post only once. Editing will be ignored.


(I'm hoping to automate posting soon)

Are you talking about Vod's BPIP project? Yes, it's quite interesting and useful. All logs are there of merited post.
