I am agree with this merit system but there should be a section where newbies and below rank members can show their skills and earn merit from bitcointalk team because I have seen many people don't get merit on quality posts.  I am still learner, I am not talking about myself but i observed.

If you create some kind of system or thread yourself, and other members like it, then you will likely earn merit from that - or cause such an area on the forum to be one in which other members can earn merit.

This is not a decentralized forum, so members have the right to create threads on any topic that they like and if others like it, then they will likely participate in your thread or tell you how it could be improved.

In other words, if you think that it a topic, an area or a thread is lacking, then go make it or perhaps some other member could receive inspiration from your ideas and create his/her version of such an area or thread.

I agree with JayJuanGee ideas.
In addition, for interest of waqasniaz007, this is one interesting topic that he/she should read and follow (not only following the topic and its progress over time, but also tracing the progress of Talk merit account). I think it is very interesing to see whether merits Talk merit will earn and how long the account will rank up to next rank (of course, ranks from Member and above).
By following the account, we will have clearer, more transparent view about what's really going on with merit system and users in the forum (especially, their responses to the forum newcomers).

I'm coming to the conclusion that this is not a typical account, and I wouldn't expect it to earn any merit. In fact many of the posts are examples of how to stop yourself from being awarded merit. Smiley

I don't think it can be considered to be a newcomer's account either. I would be surprised if it ever reaches the rank of member.

That account is clearly an alt account use to troll newbie, with huge amount of Merit waiting for it to be Merited from his Merit hog account. You are just perpetuating lies, knowing that account is an alt and try to convince people that it will organically be merited

It is a self-declared alt account and there is nothing wrong with that. There is something wrong with being so juvenile as to accuse him of intent to abuse merit with no basis. Grow up.

It is hard to complain about merit system specially when it put control on system abuse, but it require lot of learning for users to understand how merit works. in lack on that, no matter what quality you bring, if your post read by educated person, you might get merit otherwise not possible.

But every good thing comes with drawback and i wish we could do more to educate people how merit works.

Time will answer whether Talk merit can surpass Member rank and higher ones or not. In my opinion, the account will definitely move up. Looking at post-history, most of threads are constructive ones, only few are trolling ones. However, we need it because the forum should not be a serious place all the time, from topics to topics, from threads to threads.

Not only it will rank up, you also can accurately guess who will give merit and what type of post is merited, trying hard to post as many post at Meta to catch the Activity update cut off time is good proof that this will be a troll & spamming account, post not worth reading.

True, people have no clue that there is something called sMerit as well, and some think spending sMerit will take away their merits.
Seriously majority don't have any clue of this new system.

Agree on this.
As per rule: 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.
Some people are looking in "If someone sends you 1 merit, the 0.5 sMerit is not wasted; it is just not shown until you get another merit point."
that is why they are not giving merit to other people cause they're waiting to make it a whole for themselves. Wink

It is hard to complain about merit system specially when it put control on system abuse, but it require lot of learning for users to understand how merit works. in lack on that, no matter what quality you bring, if your post read by educated person, you might get merit otherwise not possible.

But every good thing comes with drawback and i wish we could do more to educate people how merit works.

It's rather like, if your post read by educated person having Spendable Merit then you might get merit otherwise it's not possible  Tongue

True, people have no clue that there is something called sMerit as well, and some think spending sMerit will take away their merits.
Seriously majority don't have any clue of this new system.

Because most of members are not going to spend time reading abour the rules, they thus dont care much, it definitely leads the merit system which helps highlight good members will not work properly.

on another view, one will refuse to use their merits which very hard to earn, in order to make other be better, and lower their own " intelectual "

just my opinion.

Not only it will rank up, you also can accurately guess who will give merit and what type of post is merited, trying hard to post as many post at Meta to catch the Activity update cut off time is good proof that this will be a troll & spamming account, post not worth reading.
You are missing a point!
There are merit sources, who often give their sMerits away; and prestigious, generous, knowledgeable users who often do it, too. So it's not strange if Talk merit earn merits from them.
However, you are right at the following point. Meta board is the place which catch attention and vistited by lots of users in the forum, particularly high ranked users. So joining the board, contribute to the board will increase probability to earn merits.

I also didn't know much until i got through all those FAQ threads, which newbies usually dont read.
Looks like it'll be better to show sMerit stat just under Merit in profile, so people would try to figure out, what that number is

I will be calling that merit begging.. you fuck...  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes  perhaps not "excessive begging" but makes you ineligible to receive merit from me, at least in the short term.   Tongue Tongue... and if you reform your merit begging ways, then I may reconsider the possibility of giving your merit.. perhaps?, somewhere down the road.. several months later...  

 But likely no one is going to get any merit from me, personally, unless I see something that stimulates me into wanting to give merit..... For example, provide some interesting content.. share some interesting ideas.. add a little humor... or other kind of insight that causes me to learn about the world or about bitcoin or some other pertinent part of my then expected life...

Your post quality after a quick browse doesn’t look bad at all. You’ve obviously just been unlucky, keep up your current posting style & you won’t be far off getting a couple of Merit points soon.

Merits and sMerits are not the same thing. Awarding sMerit does not diminish your merit score, or affect your ranking block.
