I think this merit system is quite unsustainable and I'm 100% sure I'll NEVER get any Merit point with this post. This will prove my theory is totally legit.

Many people who may still not understand about merit, in fact we do not yet feel what will be produced. However I am sure it will be very useful. Sometimes a change to a better one has to sacrifice some things. Good job team, hope this merit can change forums for the better. Now everyone has an opinion and will also have an increasing role.

Did I miss something because that seems like the system of 600k merit points will dwindle and end pretty quickly (assuming 50% always leaves the system). Do the merit-sources keep getting new merit points or was it a one off type deal?

Good point, negged.

Jokes aside, this is literally the kind of posts that the new system kinds of promotes, from posts spamming we get posts containing "subtle" bd+sM content

So there's a counter for earned merits in our profile, hope a counter for sMerits would be added too, instead of trying to send,  then an error popping up that you don't have enough sMerits.  It will save effort and time most especially on days when we have bad internet that one click take minutes to load

I've been trying to mine this Merit and the intensity must be too high, as I keep getting rejects.  Glad there's no demerits yet


Seriously though, I know its been stated a few times here that the merit system should assist in identifying the people who have quality posts, and are a contributor to the forum.  I agree with a few here that it may lend to people posting longer, trying to get merit based on their post, which still contains very little content/value.

Separately, We probably need a system or ability to report merit that does not seem earned genuinely, creating multiple accounts and handing out merit between those accounts, etc.  Just my 2c

That's not how it works. There are also 'sources' of sMerit, who have their 'supply replenished' every month, so they can give out much more sMerit than the 50% of what they receive. This will increase the supply of sMerit in the system.

My point exactly. With the influx of posts and high activity (with everyone busy snapping up merits, Someone might just miss out on it). I don't know If I'm the only one that thinks only activity should be required.

But I found this though :
Quote
1. Be a somewhat established member.
 2. Collect TEN posts written in the last couple of months that have not received nearly enough merit for how good they are, and post quotes for them all in a new Meta thread.
 3. We will take a look at your history and maybe make you a source.

I guess it just got tougher to move up the ranks. Can't argue with the reasoning behind it though, although I tend to do a lot more reading than posting. Doubt I am alone in doing that.

Ok, but members like me, that are not here for the signature bonuses, but don't make state of the art articles, will be discriminated. I'm not extraordinary, and i don't want to be stuck waiting for someone to merit my posts. I want to help the community and learn from it at the same time, but from now on, will the community spend time thanking me for doing it?

If you're not here for the signatures - why do you care about ranks? How exactly are you discriminated?

Hopefully this merit system will it works for those spammer and shit posting members, even though you've reached the activity but the merits will not you can't rank up by not getting merit required. Hopefully this merit system now did not abused again.

I think this merits would make much sense on the forum since i've been seeing lots of unuseful posts these days. My question thoughts is unanswerable when reading posts about bitcoin, as a newbie i think this will be a challenge for us and we should adapt this.

Well... But I do not understand. If someone has 10 twinks. Why do not they just give merits to the main account?
If a person A gives 1 merit to a person B, does it mean that the person A lose 1 merit from the profile?
Reason A: because you only have a limited amount of sMerit available to send.
Reason B: Because that would be fucking obvious and althunters would be all over your ass.

Or why do people not send trust to/with all their alt accounts? Same situation, really.

There will be a shit load of "favoritism" from the collectibles section as a large % of us all socialize off forum..

the Alt master turned Alt Hunter QS will be chucking up REP threads left right and center.. LUTPIN=LAUDA=MINI=ZEPHER=ACTMYNAME=TMAN=MITCHELL=LAUDA etc etc...

he will just judge us by his own standards, even though we are more likely to read each others posts more carefully

Still trying to get caught up, but, you hit the nail right on the head and I had to stop and let you know.  Thanks.

May be I don't fully understand the system, but it seems to me that if you have a limited number of merit (note: I don't have any) it will be very difficult to reward who deserve it.
And who have plenty of merits to give will have a lot of power, in many senses.
I can't grasp all the implications, we'll see in the next period.
All I can see is that Legendaries are very happy, and the other aren't.
And I don't think it's just about "quality post improvement"

Btw, I'm here from a very short time, so I can't judge anything. Just accept the situation, we'll see.

This looks about as incomprehensible as the trust system, which is jolly incomprehensible, but my brain has gone these days and I've always had little merit anyway.

You summed it up pretty well there with the exception of losing merits.
You will not lose any merits by giving someone a merit.
For every merit you have you also have 1 to give..
The rest of your post is spot on!

I would be in favour of a system in which some merit is generated to give for all users. That is, a newby may get 1 merit every month to give away, a junior 2 merit, etc...

Leaving Junior Members without signature has been a bad idea, I am sure many of them were in the middle of a signature campaign and now they will loose all their effort. Even a "grace period" of 1 month on this regard would have been a life saver for many.
