Just from this thread, the merit system is already broke from the start. This needs to be done away with. Just a opinion.

No it isn't.
The concept is good and will eventually stop rewarding the shitposters, however it will affect also regular posters slightly depending from their actual activity, at least for those who cares about their ranks. Contribute and you will get a reward.

Yes, the concept is great, however I think people need to get more used for giving some merit to posts that deserve it. It's very hard to get some - I've started quite an active thread about privacy coins and contributed quite a lot to it, but only got 3 merits - and there are required to go from Member to Full Member. Is there anybody who succeeded in getting higher rank since the merits were introduced?

I am an advocate of adding the Merit system as an incentive to good and quality messages. It's time for the forum to make its own ICO tokens sMerit! It will be profitable and fun!

I don't think that the Merit system should resemble an ICO, or be profitable. I want to be able to give a quality post merit without feeling like it cost me something to do that.

It is possible but it will require longer waiting time.
If you find any of your topics/posts useful but it didn't get its chance then you can simply highlight it in a dedicated topics where the OP there will give sMerit for quality posts. You can find those topics in the services sub generally.

Stop micromanaging it. Judging the system by one post or one thread is meaningless.

Look at it from another angle: if your thread gave you lots of merits, would you be creating new threads like that every week? If you made a funny post with a meme and got merits for it, would you be posting only memes from now on?

Forget merits, find what interests you most in this forum - something you know a lot about, something you want to learn, etc - and participate in the discussion. Merits will find their way to you.

Hi,
thanks for a response. I'll have a look for these topics. The way to get higher rank seems to be very long, but I am not saying that it's bad. With the total sMerit amount increasing from Merit sources and with users getting used to give merits to good posts, perhaps the speed of getting Merits for everyone should increase.  
Anyway, if anyone wants to evaluate if my list of privacy coins  deserves some merit, please have a look  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2869616.0

What is the opinion based on ? We are already see new members making constructive posts after this merit system was implemented. Also, if you are to read replies in this tread and other threads in meta about merit system, you would have realized that the decision is not going to be taken back. In fact, some signature campaigns are now requiring some merits from applicants.

Same, i wanted to know how this member can make that conclusions too. Hope he will be here to explain.
Yeah merit system already kicks in into another crucial things for the spammer, which is a campaign, just look at my campaign now, it requires a lot of merit to apply. I guess other campaign will be like this in the future. With this implementation, the spammer must step up their game or they will be left behind. And yes, merit wont be taken back from the system.

Only issue with such members is that they do not read more.  Only when you are read threads/replies by other members, you can be aware of the latest happenings in the forum. Thereafter, you can make helpful replies to queries of other members. If a member is just reading the posts here, he will get a lot of ideas regarding how to benefit from the forum without breaking the rules.

In addition to activity, everyone now has a merit score, and you need both a certain activity level and a certain merit score in order to reach higher member ranks. The required scores are:

RankRequired activityRequired merit
Brand new00
Newbie10
Jr Member300
Member6010
Full Member120100
Sr. Member240250
Hero Member480500
LegendaryRandom in the range 775-10301000

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.

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.

There is currently no such thing as a "demerit". I'm hoping that the positive merits alone will be fine. I could add demerits pretty easily later on if necessary, though.

I'm hoping that this system will increase post quality by:
 - Forcing people to post high-quality stuff in order to rank up. If you just post garbage, you will never get even 1 merit point, and you will therefore never be able to put links in your signature, etc.
 - Highlighting good posts with the "Merited by" line.

While we will not be directly moderating this, I encourage people to give merit to posts that are objectively high-quality, not just posts that you agree with.

Do not beg for merit excessively.

Useful infographics

Forum users have helpfully created some infographics to explain the merit system:
paxmao's infographic
ibminer's infographic
8Habits's infographic
JetSet11's infographic
zentdex's infographic
alia_armelle's infographic

If you want to be a merit source:

 1. Be a somewhat established member.
 2. Collect TEN posts written in the last couple of months by other people that have not received nearly enough merit for how good they are, and post quotes for them all in a new Meta thread. The point of this is to demonstrate your ability to give out merit usefully.
 3. We will take a look at your history and maybe make you a source.

I am especially eager to have merit sources in sub-communities such as the local sections.

Trivia:

For current members, your initial merit score is equal to the minimum required to your rank. Of that, a certain amount (less than the usual half) is spendable. The spendable amount was calculated based on your current rank and the number of activity points you earned in the last year. A Legendary member who hasn't posted in the last year would still be Legendary, but would not have any spendable merit.

If someone sends you 1 merit, the 0.5 sMerit is not wasted; it is just not shown until you get another merit point.

There are stats here, and you can find someone's merit summary by clicking the "merit" link on their profile.

I think and I wish, it would be better if the Merit button is just clickable like the "LIKE button on Facebook - clicked and stay on the same place in the page". It is very annoying when someone click on merit button, he/she run away from the current post.

That is a kind of confirmation being asked. I think it is there to prevent incidence where someone may merit a post by mistake.

Forum is the pursuit of merits now. Will live strong and persistent. Natural selection.
Merit will not appreciate the quality. Merit should not be the basis of a new rank. Merit is the gratitude of users. Not everyone can get it in the right amount. The number of merits is too large to move to new ranks.
I can not give a merits to anyone, but there are many topics that are useful to me. Beginners can not give gratitude. It is not right
