I think we should have the ability to unmerit a post, I really like this idea though because there are certain users with huge negative feedbacks but contribute a lot, so now it will be more clear to newbis that users such as quickseller, and tman that they truly dont desrve to be red, (or in QS case, not in the top 10 most negative)

thanks bud.. though not sure if I like being mentioned in the same thread as QS..

we all know that OG is a bitter vindictive tit who abuses his DT position when he feels like it... I wear my negs from him with pride.. it doesn't stop people trading with me and sending 1st.. its actually amusing to some..

this new position takes some power away from the dinosaur.. so its a good thing..

I have a fear that people with seniority will be more inclined to merit people with seniority, than people with little, regardless of the quality of the post. This thread, and the merits already given here, proves that I am not entirely wrong.

Merit is in the eye of the beholder. I would feel more inclined the other way, to reward lower rank members that are making an effort to learn about and get involved in Bitcoin. This forum is where it all started for me and I want to encourage others. This thread isn't really the place to do that.

I think the new system of merit is fine, i like it. on the other hand I was very close to Hero's rank, now I'm screwed  Cry

Same here buddy, I missed out the Senior Member rank with only 2 Activitypoints and 6 days, now it seems to be far away. It is a pity that Merit is not related to the previous earned Activity points for existing users, so I got the same like a fresh ranked up Full Member.

Although I like the new system.


I think that it would be a decent proposal to make to Theymos, if he could figure out a way to give pro-rata merit credit to members who are not at the very beginning of their rank.  I know that it might be a lot of work, but it might also be the more fair thing to do, if there is a way to reasonably accomplish such.

maybe every two weeks along with 14 max activity you could get a certain number of merits as well

I think only time will tell if Merit is really a positive addition to the forum. It all depends on how the Users will spend Merit. Will they really spend it on valuable posts or do they give it to people the know/like? So the community is responsible to use Merit as it should be.

I see people can get a negative Merit Points too. Do you actually rank down if fall under the rank limit? This can be speculative option if it gets into bad hands.
But the idea is really good, well I was really close to Full member now I have a longer way to go, but no worries, I think I can contribute to the community, already got 7 Merit points and this is awesome Smiley

They can't. This was a bug that was quickly fixed and those ratings/scores were removed.

I think unmerit as in remove a given merit.
Merits are permanent, and I think that's good. It gives the merit you reward someone a certain finality.
You can't flip forward and backwards with it, you make this decision, and you stick with it. It gives the act of rewarding merit a certain gravity.

This is a good thought.  Shocked

I can see people are asking so many questions about this. I do have a lot of questions as well but I guess applying something new takes time to see the impact and we need to give this new feature a bit time.

They brought this idea because they have a positive feeling for this. This will work out good for sure.

Is there a probability that someone could get a punishment for giving a merit to a post that does not deserve one? What about people contacting each other privately and agreeing to continue giving merits to each other,even if their post do not deserve one, how will that be detected? Wont it be very difficult for people with lower rank on the forum to get merits as compared to those with higher ranks,because generally,it is considered that the higher your rank,the more you make sense in your post.People may therefore feel reluctant to give merits to deserving post,simple because they are from lower ranked accounts.

I'm not so sure. If someone, for example, sells their account and the post quality drops dramatically, I think it would make sense to be able to remove the merit given to the account previously.

You can find that on the Merit page.

This should have a system where sMerit goes to people who use them as well.

If as stated they will deplete them self if not spent and nobody give them away we would reach a stall situation where nobody has sMerit anymore, so growth become very hard?

I totally agree with this new system, because with this we can force someone who can only copy posts to change their mind, and this will make the participant with a fake account may be a bit on tap, but I'm still confused, how do I get this merit , whereas I live a little longer to senior member, I have to say what to get this merit? at least I've not made a shit post, if someone who never made a shit post but never gets up in rank due to lack of merit, it's like discrimination against someone

It is probably too early to judge the new system. Just a few thoughts. It may reduce the number of meaningless posts and account farming, but after some reading I feel it is essentially rank freezing, at least for members and above. sMerits are incredibly scarce and upranking even from member to full member is going to be a very rare occurrence. I can feel the frustration of those who were just a few activity points from full, senior or hero. Well, I suppose I just have to accept that I'm stuck at the full member level forever...

  • A select few authoritarian figures can create more of it out of thin air.
  • It will lose its value if not spent quickly enough.
  • The majority of it is owned by the rich.
  • Its economy is based on a trickle-down effect.
  • You can spend only 50% of what you receive of it.

Which currency am I talking about?

I guess it will be hard to collect merit points even if we make a great post, but it is not impossible thing to do.

Maybe we need to send some merit points and see how it goes back to us from another member.

Just a joke (by no way serious joking). This is the best thing I receive as an early Bitcointalker.

Anyway, when I first scanned through this topic, I thought I am going to lose all my progress and "hard work" - okay, maybe 'medium' quality posts since 90% of the time I am tagged with signature campaign - to this system. I immediately check my profile and was relived when I saw that I have 1000 merit.

Guess why I don't want to lose my legendary status? Well, because I have plan to put this on my CV/resume. (Alright, just a joke, in today era).
