If you want to be a merit source:

Collect TEN posts that have not received nearly enough merit for how good they are, and post quotes for them all in a new Meta thread.


Can someone show an example on a curation of 10 posts that qualify someone to be a merit source?

As a jr member that was 1 period off making a member, its a big chance but it does make me want to post even better posts then before!

The only negative thing about it that I can see is that maybe people will try to abuse the system, and it will be harder to catch them, because before someone would just spam  posts on the forum to get ranks and everyone was able to see that the person was posting shit posts.

Now a person with more then 1 member+ account will able to gift merits to anyone, that person could just make a new account post a few good posts and recieve merit from his other accounts and probably no one would notice.

However I do like the new system because it will make people really think about what they are posting.

This is just a meme I created not asking for merit  Grin

This might not be fair for new people, I don't know if others will ever consider to give merit to newbies. Guess I had to been registered here like 1year back to get some kind of "good" positions. Juniors and newbies are often treated poorly and seen as funny guys around, not taken seriously.

Totally agreed and you have got 1 merit from me because of it.

Oh my this totally brought to my mind an episode of Black Mirror season 3, Nosedive! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5497778/?ref_=ttep_ep1

I already don't like the way clicking on +merit takes you away from the thread.  Can you please have it open in a new window?

Please no.

Right click and open in new window if you want this feature.

Worst comes to worst, you could write a greasemonkey / some other client side script to modify the target to _blank.

Interesting this thing Merit. But I hope it will work. The problem is that this is not a forum like chat or something.
I've been reading all comments all day about this. There is no enough points and people are not gonna give them so easy.
Because they are not thinking about rewarding anyone except people with many accounts.
We had trust and negative system it was not used often, just when someone was pissed off and trowed a negative to a member

right... 100 quality posts and I will give you 2 merits..

so now you have a chance... a once only - one time, one in a lifetime offer... to get 2 merits.. that will likely lead to more as you will of conducted yourself in the best way possible here..

so others will likely follow... and you might get 10 merits.

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.

Oh, just great. More abuse of power. Let me guess; Lauda, The Pharmacist and actmyname.

Besides, why would anyone outside the happy few give away his merit points if he needs them himself to move up in ranking?

The forum ranking system is a bit complicated now...

That's why I opted in the other thread, and here, for principal forum moderation. Everyone can understand principles. Nobody understands patched up constructions like this.

The forum is getting crazier and crazier. I wish there was an alternative. But alas, as long as Bitcointalk has the monopoly we'll have to deal with the power abuse over here...

Sending merit to someone else does not affect your rank merit points.

 I don't understand why so many people think that sending Merit will make you lose some, I think the topic post was pretty clear   Undecided

This forum isn't a sweatshop - churning out lackluster crap should not be rewarded. If you do nothing but pollute this forum with spam, you shouldn't get paid for doing so. Otherwise, if you happen to contribute good content to the site, you'll do fine.

I think that this new system of ranking up would avoid people from abusing shit posting because they will be forced to create posts that would make sense. I hope that this would help users on improving their posts quality and avoid spamming on the threads. Good for those who were able to rank up before this was implemented. However, those who are on low ranks would really have to work their way up before ranking up.

But with the merit system the rank can only go upwards

Weird people are everywhere but now days their number is increasing on this forum as well. Keep crying mate, it seems that your world has been destroyed. Is this your only source to earn the bread and butter ? Go out and face the real world instead of crying here.

Generalizing broadly, the new system rewards quality over quantity. It is good for the forum. The Merit system hasn't killed you, it's just forcing you to improve the quality of your posts.

Make 5 high quality posts on the forum that are genuinely good and helpful. DM me the links. I'll personally Merit you if I think they are worth it and improve the discourse here.

I'm not concerned by this measure, because already being Legendary, but what is its serious interest? There are people who make great posts, who were not far to upgrade to the next rank and hope to be able to earn more during the next bountys.
And in a half second, without warning anyone, you destroyed their hope or at least postponed them by several weeks.

It's totally useless as a system. Please admin, change the rules.

I don't agree with this system.

You are creating the definition of "Rich people maintain rich, poor people will be poor forever."

Example: if you was in bitcointalk forum a few years ago, you posted a lot of under-quality posts and you earned Legendary Rank, so it is unfair with new people joining this forum now.

And a lot of projects need bitcointalk rank level such as bitsend airdrop (need Legendary rank), so it is much harder if this new system running.

If you are trying creating a block and keep your high rank level people safety, you are successful. Congrat to devs.

And I lose my faith in this forum. I will still read and post in this forum but not in supporting anymore.

If a new forum created and quality much better than you, I will go a new place.

However, there is already some new forums with high quality already exist such as Steemit.

Good luck with your Merit score and congratulation to those who reached Legendary rank one more time (by now, they are get the most benefit of all thing in this crypto-world).

Oo 5 days before "Full Member", i'm shocked. But in any case this is a fair rank system and i support it. Hope i will receive my "Full" soon )

Nothing to worry if you make a quality post, but I as can see on your history post you might be have a hard time to reach that level.
This new system basically to have a quality post for every user but people might make ways just to get lots of merits, we will see this in the long run.
Yes i realize that, so will try to get my full. Buy it is a pity that moderators didn't wait at least another one rank change day and implemented this improvement so suddenly( There are so huge abyss between member and full member now(

It doesn't. It rewards older members over newer members. There are probably plenty of Full's, Senior's, Hero's and Legendaries who came to their status through plenty of low quality posting in the past (and present).

I was a Sr. Member and right before they added this new Merit system a thread that I was in was deleted sending me back to full member. Is there anything that I can do to get the Merit that I should of had? It's very frustrating. I doubt I'll be able to reach the 150 merits that I need. And even if I do, those 150 should have gone into the next ranking. It's really, really frustrating because I was so happy to reach the Sr. Member.
