Wow, big change. This is a minefield, going to have to put this thread on watch & come back and read thoroughly when I have time.

We all agree that - as day 1 of the system - is too early to make any evaluation.
Btw some aspects are unclear: as a Member, I've just ONE merit to give. One. After that, zero. I've to wait someone to give me a merit - actually two - to appreciate another post. May be I read some masterworks, but I can't give anything because I don't have.
Of course, this is true else for other people: may be they like very much a post I wrote, but they can't give me a merit because they haven't.
So, to earn a merit, not only I need to write a wonderful post, but I have to hope that it will be read from the right person, that has merits to give.

I don't know how other people at my level think about this, but I feel frustrated and discouraged, because the chances to receive a merit are very low.

I've no idea how many fantastic post I should write to have the hope to  receive the 90 merit I need to become Full Member.
Probably after some post without any positive feedback, I'll simply give up, and I'll stop posting.
And for sure, newbies and Jr.Member will do the same.

I'm pretty sure that for some Vip here, this would a good result, but in this case ICO will lose interest to promote them here.
Shortly: may be the intention was to get rid of spam, but the result will be the death of the forum.

Of course, may be I'm completely wrong (I'd like to be), and it will be very easy to receive merit and to rank up, in the meanwhile we can keep shitposters away.

May be.

His suggestion isn't the solution, but mine would. The problem is that if the initial merit score is equal to the minimum required for the rank you have, at least half of the people of this forum (those whose activity is closer to the upper range of their rank than to the lower one) will feel they have been treated in a way which is not fair. That's 50% of the members of Bitcointalk. And those who were only one week away from the next rank will feel particularly bad, especially if you are going for a higher rank (like from Senior to Hero) and in one moment you are losing 6 months of activity, since activity without the corresponding merit has no value any more. On the other side, if the initial merit score is more progressively and proportionatelly distributed, nobody would feel the system has treated HIM in an unjust way. Someone has said that now it's too late for changes because the system has already been implemented. This would be true if you had to take away merits from people. But in fact, what I'm suggesting is that people would get some additional merits to fit or anyway somehow reflect their activity count more than just their rank. What I'm saying is that more precision here would mean much more justice. My view is that as much justice as technically possible is badly needed in any big community which doesn't want to fall apart.

May be not 50% but a lot of them for sure. Cannot believe that it is so technically hard to apply initial merit points equal to activity points.

By definition half of the people would be closer to the upper threshold of a ranking activity range and half would be close to the lower range. You could obviously imagine also some being exactly in the middle Smiley Of course, the closer the people would be to the upper range, and therefore to the next rank, the more they would now feel the injustice.

Rich people became richer, poor people  more poor...

In less than a day we already sent more sMerits (11k+) than sources will gain in a month (~8k). Anyone knows how many sMerits have been distributed to existing members?

About 600k.

Yes, read that carefully after clicking +merit on other members. I believe you get 1 smerit per post and can spend that then. Thanks.
You clearly have not read the OP, since you get 0.5 sMerit for every merit you receive.

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.

The bigger point still remains open for me where I was just two points away from next level, however with this change I am by 150 merit points. Its all good though, will get there sooner or later.

The distribution of Merits would have been fairer if it were based on the amount of activities. The distribution of merits thatmade according to the rank is not fair. A new Sr. member who have 241 activity point and the same rank who have 476 activity got the same amount of merit. Is it fair ?

I really dont understand this new system very well. It seems or appears to be creating a longer road for persons to be able to climb higher in rank.

I am two weeks away to be a Full Member, but now I'll have to collect 90 merit to deserve this rank. I'm a bit confused but I totally understand the system. I hope that now the forum will be with less shitposts.

Personally, I will not change my manner to participate here. I'll continue to post quality messages. If I get merit points : good ! If I don't get them, it's not a biiiiig deal, I'll wait. And I will give my sMerits without being manipulative. I hope that everyone will think like me. Let's be positive guys.  Grin

I'm just trying to figure out the real effects of the new system, I'm not so sure if the results will be a real improvement of the posts (for me it will be, because I'll try from now to write better posts), but at least this will stop a little the invasion of meaningless posts written by illiterates.

However, I can't understand exactly the idea of a "finite number" of sMerits, out of the part that will be "mined" monthly.
This means that sMerit are a kind of currency, but in the same time if you don't use them, they will disappear...
I don't know, may be I'm not so smart but there is something that I can't grasp.
I'll keep reading your posts.

I fully support you. I'm in the same situation as you are. And I think that this is unfair to users who have been going for a long time towards the goal
