I was a bit dissapointed when I at last got activity level high enough to be full member but then they had just added this merit system so now it feels impossible to become a full member. How can I actually get more merit? I don't Think anyone ever will give me that for free...

Can I get merit by joining Bounty Campaigns? Or should a make tutorials or something else? Don't understand what is required to earn merit?

1) You get merit points for making quality posts here. You can check posts getting good merit points here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;stats. Learn and post accordingly.

2) You should not try buying merit points as it will result in negative trust.

3) There are more than 141 pages of content related to merit system. If you read it carefully, you will not need  a tutorial.

All the best.

I have already said my peace several times in this thread. I see myself coming back again and again though, which must mean that I am having a truce rather than peace with it. I keep telling myself that no known to man system is perfect, but that we can get pretty close if we share opinions based on previous and present experiences and act on them. It is, however, becoming clearer and clearer to me that this system with its upsides and flaws isn't going to change, but that it is my attitude towards it that has to.

Whenever I come back to this thread - and I will  Cheesy - it will be to share constructive thoughts and criticism on how to deal with the merit system, rather than thoughts on how to change it. You should too as anything else is a waste of energy.

I also think that members should realize by now that this new merit system is not going to be reversed. We have seen the admin being open to changes and that should be sufficient.

I think in a long-term it might be a good think with the Merit system improving posts quality indeed. But i think it need some months to etablished the Merit system in the forum that any member use the merit button when he read a good post or a helpful answer for his question. But now im so frustrated that i having the activity to be full member and have some restriction from the Member status like cant wear a Avatar. The first distribution from Merits to the member Rank have should been tied to the activity value - so i have only 10 Merit short before i reached the activity to be a Full Member.
I see some posts in the last week from Jr. Member and Member wich answered to Questions from Hero or Sr. Member without a "Thank You" or a Merit. The Merit System must come on in the head from the "BIG" Member that the forum not becomes elitist and the user base is balanced. We have a long way before us...but i hope we are on a good way with this new forum function.

Merit is somewhat subjective, but well constructed posts and things that are helpful or interesting are good places to start.

The fact that you are aware you won't get it "for free" struck me as positive. Nothing in life is really free, and never will be. So that earned you one merit in itself. Bounty campaigns are just about money. They are actually part of the problem this is supposed to address. I have severe doubts as to its efficacy, but it's at least a step in the right direction. As to tutorials and things of that nature, while I obviously can only speak for myself, I would find those worthy of merit if they are both useful and well written.

Thanks a lot! No I don't expect to get it for free and I don't mean to pay Money to get it. I want to write useful posts but was not sure what kind of posts people like. I am mostly into mining and I am a Linux user so maybe I can write some guide how to mine in Linux and put in altcoin mining section. Maybe this system actually works and make this forum a better place.

You can check this page https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;stats to know which posts are getting more merits. The guides you mentioned should get you merits if they are unique and interesting.

I fully do not understand this merit system, Please let me know whether newbie or jr member can give merit to any one?
yeah, if sMerit is enough at least 1 sMerit
every  x1 Merit received a newbie or jr member then they will get 0.5 sMerit
giving merit to others must have at least 2 merits = 1 sMerit to given
1 Merit = 0.5 sMerit
2 Merit = 1    sMerit
3 Merit = 1.5 sMerit
4 Merit = 2    sMerit
etc

Hi,
I can't find sMerit on CoinMarketCap.

When do you think it will be listed ?  Grin
I think you've been through a difficult day,

How do we get merits?
By making quality posts on the forum.

can newbies give merits?
Yes, they can give merits if they have. For instance, if you get 2 merit points, you will have  half of it (1 smerit). You can send that 1 smerit to another member for his quality post.

Actually, they already know how the system works. But, they just disagree with new term.
And, keep complaining for "THIS UNFAIR SYSTEM". Really, i want to vomit see many topics that say negative about Merit.

I think the vast majority of people are going to have a lot of trouble getting any merit. Thus far, the majority of active contributors haven't received any merit.

You should back that up although I have a feeling you won't.

Who's the "majority of active contributors"?

It would be nice if we can get a merit menu like "Last merit post" and"Top merited posts for last 24h" for every section and subsection. So everyone can check the top merited posts in off-topic section for example, then you have more control on how merit is distributed. I know that we have already top and last merited posts in the whole forum but I think it won't be a bad idea to have control on the local sections also.
Just an idea Smiley

Merit is the dream of all dividing the soul of the coming rank up of the members. Piercing the heart of the eager. Broke the mind of simpletons. Rebuking the shits but lights up the inner core. Hear folks the shouts of merit FAIR or UNFAIR side by side of this corner. Merit sounds COOL but the people FALL. Arguing the silent killer/life giver (merit/rank up) of what, why, how, and what if can be find almost everywhere. Hope merit will be settled.

I hope I contribute to this topic.

You should be able those details if you check this page carefully: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;stats
I think it is worth giving some time to read posts getting highest number of merits. I do not think so much merits are distributed in different sections that we need to have separate lists for each one.

The system is just like Finale exam. At the last of every year we have to attend an exam for getting promotion to the next class. if you don't study hard you will not pass on the exam and you will not get promotion to the higher class. Grin Because of this we had to stady hard so that we can pass the exam. Grin The merit system is just like this, Wink If you don't post good/quality post you will not get merit by any one.If you don't get merit your rank will not upgrad and upgrading rank is important and its valuable. so for this you have to worke hard and keep making good quality post.  Wink

Yeah, sure. That's why legendary are sending each other merits, not sharing with anyone else.

In the meantime don't hold your breath. You won't be ranking up any time soon and neither will I.
