The idea of merit is really cool. I believe that it is better to have it like it is now then not to have it at all . However, I would like to point out some disadvantages that possess the current system:

1) Forum participants are not motivated to give merit to good posts .
I see a lot of valuable posts which are not marked with merit. And I have the same experience: as a translator I’ve started around 40 topics (ANNs translations) which by definition are valuable posts. Moreover, I provide everyday a lot of updates and news to those ANN (not all, but at least some part of them must be valuable to readers!). You know what?! I haven’t got a single merit point!!!!

Solution: forum members must be motivated to give merits to quality posts. For instance, if member merits some posts he will receive back a share (let say 0.1 merit) from another merits given to that post by another members after his merit. So people are motivated to become good moderators and they receive back merit for their job! Post with high quality of merits must be moderated manually (just for the case someone will try to use this mechanism for merit redistribution).

2) Disproportion of required merit points for some ranks.
Current merit system is 0 – 10 – 100 – 250 – 500 - 1000
Initial activity system was 30 – 60 – 120 – 240 – 480 – 775+
Comparing these numbers, I see some inconsistency of rating system and namely:

A)   Merits are harder to get than activity but you need more merit points than activity to get the next rank!
B)   Activity system looks quite logical as to get the next rank you need to double your current rank activity. But merit system made a gap between Member and the Full Member as you need to increase merit points in 10 times!!!
C)   To become Jr. Member you need activities but you don’t need merits. Why?

Solution: I assume that under condition that forum users are motivated to give merits for good posts the chance to get merit writing a quality post will rise from 0,01% (which I believe is now) to 10%. So following this assumption, I would offer merit system as follows:
3 – 6 – 12 – 24 – 48 – 96 (from J. Member to Legendary)

3) Unfair starting position of merit points for different rank.
Let assume that some Hero gained his status just posting simple posts. And to become a Hero under new conditions (if it is at all possible) will be much harder. So the past Hero can’t be compared with future Hero. This is true to all other ranks.
Solution: Introduce de-rank procedure. For instance if “past” Hero gains not enough merits for some period of time it will must be de-ranked to previous rank (Sr. Member). This is true to all other ranks.

It is true that in this way you will make it difficult for all account farmers, but for ordinary users, achieving more merit points will be practically impossible and then the entire ranking system loses meaning.

You are a curious person to me. The majority of your post history is in Chinese. I randomly translated some of the older posts from that Chinese guy and he was a pretty big bitcoin supporter. He was worried about what his government would do to bitcoin.

Then *poof* as if by some kind of forum magic that Chinese guy becomes fluent in English, never posts in a Chinese language thread again, becomes a bounty hunter and only posts in threads talking about profit. I hope you didn’t spend too much for that account.

I don’t know how much I trust your opinion on the whole merit situation since you’re probably one of the people this system is supposed to eliminate.

I bought this account.. Like we can see in posts history it was around middle of August 2017. I don't know why someone sold this account.
It is my alt account, my real account have much longer history.. almost like yours Wink You don't need to trust my rank, because as we all know not always it have to be true Wink . Just read what i write and think.

Merit system is not bad idea in my opinion, but as it was written account farmers can find bypass for it:

Quote
On the other hand, it is not really hard to post 50 short lines in off topic or games and rounds and after that to post 10 high quality posts at right place and point them to right people.
I don't think current system will decrease number of farming accounts, spam or account sales and honestly I think 10 merits to rank up to member rank is too low, because people will just create hundred accounts, do exactly what I said above and abuse signature/bounty campaigns, giveaways etc.

For every 10 Smerits received, junior member can easily send 5 Smerits to other account, from that account 2 Smerit to third account and so on - and repeat with many accounts.

When I write that increasing the number of merit points will be very difficult for ordinary users, I write this honestly. On the other hand, in my opinion, farmers will bypass it. But as wrote themos it is too early to verdict where it will go.
The only thing i can suggest at this point, is implementation of a moderator who will deal only with merit points.

Do I have to be eliminated by this system? I don't know - you should to decide about that. Lauda already tagged me just because someone said that my account is hacked Smiley And now i have to prove that i bought this account - what is allowed here, but in next 5 minutes The Pharmacist will give me next red tag because he don't like when someone buy account. For me behavior like this distorts reality.
Maybe my example will be interesting to talk about that system.. Let see example when someone collected thousands of merit points, and someone find out that a few years ago he bought this account .. buum - red tag! What then?

I think that trading accounts should be blocked completely and it would dispel any doubts. Don't you see a conflict of interest? On one end Administration is letting people trading accounts and on another is rewarding people for red tagging for that! Kind of Monthy Python for me ..

Sorry for little off top with this trading.

I merely gave you a merit for: 1) the activity level of your account, 2) the fact that had not received any merits and 3) because of the substance of your earlier posts.  I did not research into your trust or your post history.

But even your admission here regarding the surrounding facts brings me regret for having had used one of my merits on your account.

Somehow you believe that if an account is stolen (assuming that you did not steal the account and you paid for it like you said), then someone, such as yourself, should be able to buy such account and the account would be valid because you supposedly payed for it? 

There seems to be something wrong with your thinking, in that regard, bitgov.  I will be surprised if this particular account does not get frozen or locked out - seems like you are not in a good position, because, generally, buying stolen property is not acceptable, and if you think that it is then you may be engaged in a kind of rationalization if you believe that buying stolen property should be acceptable?   

Anyhow, if you really do have another more valid account, then perhaps you (and the forum) would be better served by your using that other (presumably not stolen account) to post. 


To be honest I don't know how to check if this account was stolen..  Roll Eyes I just have to belive that i bought this account from real, first owner. If there is any option i will feel much better when someone can help me to confirm that.
Of course I am against using stolen accounts.
Perhaps there is a paradox in the fact that I bought this account, and at the same time I argue that accounts trading should be banned.
I bought this account because it is allowed.
I argue that account trading should be banned because in my opinion it is the main reason why account farmers earn and do what they do. And account trading mainly distorts the ranking system and merit point system.
I'm surprised that nobody talks about it till now!?

forum members must be motivated to give merits to quality posts.
That's true.  I don't get any sort of reward for giving people merit points--but the thing is is that I like this forum and want to reward people who put in some effort in their posts.  That's the whole reason I spent my time giving negative feedback to shitposters.  So I will certainly give out some merit points when I see people writing good things, and I know other senior members feel likewise. 

Yes, this whole system makes it harder for people to rank up, but that's the point.  And to people who are put off by this:  Why is it so damn important that you rank up?  My guess is that the only reason you're concerned is so that you can earn more money.  Historically, that's been a very bad reason to be here. 

The people who are most concerned about the money have turned out to be the worst posters.

1) Forum participants are not motivated to give merit to good posts .

i have my own motivation for meriting posts that ive also seen others mention: a way to make the best, most informative posts in a thread stand out. because hopefully at some point we will be have a way to be able to view only posts that have merit value as a way to quickly skim the best posts in a thread instead of reading pages of drivel or random banter.

there are many threads about things i would like to learn about but usually i quickly lose interest as only one post in ten have useful info. i soon just stop reading it. if i could only see the best posts to get a feel for the threads usefulness i can then go back and read all of it if i want.

of course we would need a merit filter for threads or something but im sure that can be done if this merit thing works out. even now though posts that have merit tend to stand out while scrolling so i can zero in on those posts even as is stands.

To be honest I don't know how to check if this account was stolen..  Roll Eyes

First of all.  Yes, I think that there is a preference for members to be honest, and it is not easy to gage honesty over the internet, except maybe with the passage of time - or  maybe if given some responsibility or time to admit wrongdoing and things like that.  So, there may be a certain level of assumption that posters are being honest, until there is evidence that they are not... And, then when there is a system of dishonesty that develops, then the new presumption might unfairly become that newbies are dishonest, until they are proven otherwise.  So yeah, you have problematic aspects of your account, and doubtful that anyone is against the buying/selling of legitimate accounts, but if they are stolen, then seems that caveat emptor would apply.. which means you are likely a loser if there is any decent level of evidence that your account was not acquired legitimately.




I just have to belive that i bought this account from real, first owner. If there is any option i will feel much better when someone can help me to confirm that.

I doubt that there is much of any recourse for you if it is determined that the account was not legitimately transferred.



Of course I am against using stolen accounts.

I think almost anyone agrees about that, except perhaps folks who either engage in crime or endorse it or people with very poor logic skills.


Perhaps there is a paradox in the fact that I bought this account, and at the same time I argue that accounts trading should be banned.
I bought this account because it is allowed.

I don't know if that is a paradox, or just a kind of attempt at rationalization of your likely bad situation.. seemingly logical to lose the account.



I argue that account trading should be banned because in my opinion it is the main reason why account farmers earn and do what they do. And account trading mainly distorts the ranking system and merit point system.
I'm surprised that nobody talks about it till now!?

I doubt that account trading, farming or the ability to sell is a new topic.  I have seen older post on the topic, so difficult to argue that it is some kind of new phenomenon.

I recall that I lost access to my account twice.  Once was my own fault to screw up my method of signing in, and my account got frozen for nearly a month; however, another time, my account was taken over by a hacker. 

Having my account taken over by a hacker caused me to recognize the value of my account and its history, so I did jump through several hoops, and fairly promptly to get access to my account back.  Sometimes, it can take several weeks or longer before legitimate owners might have realized that there account had been compromised, or what to do about such compromised situation.  Further, I imagine that it can be a fairly time-consuming and tedious activity for forum administrators to be returning legitimate access (and verifying) actual owners during seemingly ongoing hacking situations.

Hacking accounts is other problem, we can do nothing about it, and in my opinion merit system have not much to do with that.

If the topic of accounts trading was discussed (I missed it), I think we should keep it up. I'm sure that this is what makes the biggest problem for merit and rank system, and certainly there also would be less hacked accounts. I think that Theymos one more time should consider to ban this.

I think that I already said as much as I want to say on the topic.  Ultimately it is up to the administrators what to do with your account, and they would likely have access to information that I don't have and I don't know if you have such information, either.

Hacking accounts is other problem, we can do nothing about it, and in my opinion merit system have not much to do with that.

Hacking accounts has to do with ownership claims rather than being a merit system specific topic.    Yet, if merit is given to an account prior to knowing whether there are hacking and/or ownership disputes, then those kinds of questions have been raised in the context of merit, fair merit distribution, etc.


If the topic of accounts trading was discussed (I missed it), I think we should keep it up.

I don't know how you would have missed the topic, because it was raised in light of your own account and in the context of your posting in this thread.


I'm sure that this is what makes the biggest problem for merit and rank system

Again, it is not a merit/rank specific topic, and it mostly seems to have come up in connection with your account.


, and certainly there also would be less hacked accounts. I think that Theymos one more time should consider to ban this.

You seem to be both repeating a point that you already made and NOT making such point very clearly.  Buying/selling accounts is not banned; however, if the account was stolen or compromised in that kind of way, then that seems to b where there becomes an issue.  Sure Theymos could change the policy regarding having more than one account and regarding selling/trading accounts, but that does not seem to be a change that is the works, currently... and really, given your current status and situation, I doubt that your input or suggestion would carry very much weight with Theymos were he deliberating changes in such policy/practices.

I don't understand 100% what is merit system but through this thread,  i am able to do so.  Although it affects my ranking flow to go up,  i still think it is for the best. We can atleast minimize spamming and will be encouraged to do quality posts.  It is for the good of all and also for the new members to come,  so that when they enter the forum,  they can extract good and quality information about tge quiries on their minds.

To simplify you need to earned merit depends on your ranks needed. For example: Your currently position is Jr Member, you need to earned 10 merits before you promote into Member position. So even you have 120 activities if you can't collect merits base on your respective position, you can't ranked up. Even your activities is good for Hero Member, you can't ranked up.

It is a big challenges to us, because they need to evolve with our own. We need to shared our fruitful idea to others not shitty, because if we become contented to our position or else we can't grow up.

So take this merits systems as new challenges, cheer up for the growth of our community. I know all of them can do this.

You are correct, but how about us who have red trust, how can we ranked up? because of this negative trust most of the users can't believe and trust us. Yes merit points can given to us but the sad reality is still we can't join in some campaign. So whatever rank ups happen to us, whatever merits we received, we can't grow up because of this negative feedback appears in our accounts.

I see theymoss didn't even give any chance for members who was waiting rank change today)) I think it's strange, all member are good for forum, not only hero. And if you implemented your new system so suddenly you should give at least another one rank change by old rules, I think would be fair. And It's not a secret that no-one likes this new system except members with highest rank, who don't care about it) And I don't care too. But it may be that very soon we will have "fork" of this forum with more fair rules and all people and startups will move there. Really don't understand you theymoss.
There is already a "fork" of this forum. Here is the link to it: forum.bitcoin.com

It is pretty much a Bitcoin forum like this one which has much less spam as it is relatively new and because it bans nearly all sig campaigns. As far as I know, they have only had 1 sig campaign so far.

Let me guess, the one and only sig campaign on your referral to bitcoin.com is for b-cash(trash?)?  hahahahaha

Yeah, right, go join that stupid-ass (and likely astroturf) forum for "more objective" information.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
Your guess was wrong. The signature campaign that I am referring to is advertising for Bitcoin games, which is a gambling website. This campaign was up and running, and finished before the fork of BTC into Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. Just for the record, I think forum.bitcoin.com is a much more useful forum for people wishing to learn and get help on things related to Bitcoin. Things are much better organised with little to no spam. Saying this I have not been on the forum for quite a while so I do not know it's conditions now. Bitcoin talk is better for making money and conducting trading.

I see theymoss didn't even give any chance for members who was waiting rank change today)) I think it's strange, all member are good for forum, not only hero. And if you implemented your new system so suddenly you should give at least another one rank change by old rules, I think would be fair. And It's not a secret that no-one likes this new system except members with highest rank, who don't care about it) And I don't care too. But it may be that very soon we will have "fork" of this forum with more fair rules and all people and startups will move there. Really don't understand you theymoss.
There is already a "fork" of this forum. Here is the link to it: forum.bitcoin.com

It is pretty much a Bitcoin forum like this one which has much less spam as it is relatively new and because it bans nearly all sig campaigns. As far as I know, they have only had 1 sig campaign so far.

Let me guess, the one and only sig campaign on your referral to bitcoin.com is for b-cash(trash?)?  hahahahaha

Yeah, right, go join that stupid-ass (and likely astroturf) forum for "more objective" information.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
Your guess was wrong. The signature campaign that I am referring to is advertising for Bitcoin games, which is a gambling website. This campaign was up and running, and finished before the fork of BTC into Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. Just for the record, I think forum.bitcoin.com is a much more useful forum for people wishing to learn and get help on things related to Bitcoin. Things are much better organised with little to no spam. Saying this I have not been on the forum for quite a while so I do not know it's conditions now. Bitcoin talk is better for making money and conducting trading.


Ah haaaa...

Looks like i was more or less correct... which means that I was in the ballpark regarding my thinking about your apparently fuzzy logic.

1) You described "the fork of BTC into Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash."  Your word choice and phraseology seems to indicate that you don't quite understand (whether willfully or subliminally) what happened or the significance.  There was no neutral kind of forkening event.. What actually happened was a process that went awry.  The new york agreement fucktards thought that they were going to get some kind of sneaky agreement passed in which they would be able to sneak in 2mb blocks and also just cause bitcoin to become easier to change, and to fuck with bitcoin's governance. When that plan did not work, some small group of them created a renegade attack vector, which was a fork in order to attempt to leverage and threaten getting their way.  So yeah, your description of what happened is in accurate, and your usurpation of the term bitcoin into the name bitcoin cash is not appropriate for the thing referred to as bcash.

2) The fact that you believe bitcoin.com is some kind of "useful" forum demonstrates that  you are living in a fantasy world, because bitcoin.com is involved in an ongoing attempt to confuse people into thinking that bcash is bitcoin.

3) if you are here to make money only, then sure I suppose that you are getting a purpose out of the forum, but likely since your motivations are to use the forum for those purposes shows that it would probably be better for the rest of us if you just bugger the fuck out of here... and get your remaining pleasures at bitcoin.com. ... shoo..!!!! .shoo you.....!!!!   Now, go away!!!!   I understand that you are likely not going to go away.. so just wishful thinking from me... and we are likely stuck with your nonsense and foggy thinking for a while on this forum.. unless there is some slim miracle chance that you might learn something in which your might be able to contribute to the forum?  I doubt it, but Perhaps?

I don't understand 100% what is merit system but through this thread,  i am able to do so.  Although it affects my ranking flow to go up,  i still think it is for the best. We can atleast minimize spamming and will be encouraged to do quality posts.  It is for the good of all and also for the new members to come,  so that when they enter the forum,  they can extract good and quality information about tge quiries on their minds.
To simplify you need to earned merit depends on your ranks needed. For example: Your currently position is Jr Member, you need to earned 10 merits before you promote into Member position. So even you have 120 activities if you can't collect merits base on your respective position, you can't ranked up. Even your activities is good for Hero Member, you can't ranked up.

It is a big challenges to us, because they need to evolve with our own. We need to shared our fruitful idea to others not shitty, because if we become contented to our position or else we can't grow up.

So take this merits systems as new challenges, cheer up for the growth of our community. I know all of them can do this.
You are correct, but how about us who have red trust, how can we ranked up? because of this negative trust most of the users can't believe and trust us. Yes merit points can given to us but the sad reality is still we can't join in some campaign. So whatever rank ups happen to us, whatever merits we received, we can't grow up because of this negative feedback appears in our accounts.
You are correct, having red trust wont able to participate in signature campaign. But there is a possibility to removed that red trust by changing your way of posting, since you are tagged shit poster you should work it out to improved that and ask for the person who put that trust to you to review the history of your post.

I don't know if someone already suggested this idea (partially expressed in the first message) because no way I'm gonna read 100+ pages  Grin

I think that giving merit is a bit unnatural, this is not Facebook which has always been based on likes, this is a forum, people write and read, and what bothers me are the useless messages, so why don't punish those messages? Instead of the merit we give a demerit just like in real life: you go to jail if you steal or kill but you don't get a prize if you don't do it (this is an extreme example of course), and after 3 or 5 demerits that message gets automatically hidden or deleted, and if this happens also with other messages from the same user the account gets frozen for 24 hrs for the first time, than 48, than 96 and so on, every time the freezing time doubles until the moment it'll be almost impossible to write again, he has to wait for weeks.

Instead of posting you 100% agree, you should have given me 100 merit.
You can only give 50 merit to a user in a 30 day window.
Unless they have an alt account, they cannot give you 100 merit (right now).

Press your middle mouse button when trying to open a link to open it in a new window. Problem solved. Now you should have given me 200 merit.
Same problem, 4 alt accounts?

So, how can i get merit score now, my friend?
Please kindly let me know.

Thank you and have a great working day !

By contributing something to the forum doesn't necessarily give you merit. A junior member (like me) cannot get easily merit and cannot give merit. Merit points are so low that make it a scarce resource. This resource will never be distributed freely to everyone but to persons that you already know or alt accounts.
In general I agree with merit score, but i suggest available points to distribute should be increased and even jr. members should have some.
I am not a crypto expert, I just started. What contribution of mine could impress the rest so i get merit points?
Is there a report to show merit points received by jr members and related posts (no alt accounts)? I think this report will be disappointing...

I don't know why some normal comments/topics by high rank member get contributing very much merit ? For new members like me , it's very hard to achieve merit by someone even we have valuable topics

how would you even know? 

You been registered about two months and you have 14 posts (13 out of 14 largely one-liner posts in the past two days).

I recall that I was on the forum for several months and attempting to interact with other members in bitcoin substantive threads, and it takes a considerable amount of time for other members to get to know you and to respond to you and to interact with your posts (more than a couple of days).

 You could hardly even have experimented with the interaction aspect of this forum if you only have 13 posts in a couple of days, right?

Contributing to the forum means getting involved in conversations. If you do that and show you have an interest in crypto and are here to learn and participate then the merit will come. You're new, forget about ranks and merit, just get involved and give it time.

Edit: I just checked your post history. Another almost entirely full of bounty applications. What do you think is merit worthy in that?

You just made 15 posts so far. Here are some of your recent valuable contributions:

In a next few years , cryptocurrency 'll survive and still grow , but yeah , i think it's also a bubble , blockchain is a future , but the value of cryptocurrency 'll be corrected like others bubble before

My aim in 2018 is just have enough money to buy a house  Tongue

it seems this year , many project will launch under NEO platform , and it makes this coin grow strongly . This month is the moment for buying NEO with lowest price , i think .

How many merits you expect for these ? Smiley
