Merit or not you need to be after all very constructive or unique in topic that reply to.
Reading all this is good after all i will collect as much as I can to gather beside knowledge some good skill or something unique to create and post ANN that will gain much attention and maybe as one of possible ways gather necessary merit for future upcoming rank.

After all this is maybe one good way to reduce spam and reading this see that this reduces spam on main topic, rest is up to local board to do something about it.
Admin already stated that he will implement KYC as soon as the hell freezes over.

New users can also become copper member for just a tiny amount of bitcoin. It will take away some restrictions for newbee. nice

That is really a good option for new members. For people looking to offer their services here, it kind of brings more trust to the account which is the most important benefit in my opinion.

And then there are benefits likes the ones you mentioned like the limits getting reduced which results in better user experience. Also, it gives the forum an additional source of revenue thus benefiting everyone.

Welcome to the forum, and highly appreciate your time to compose the thread.
However, I recommend you should not publish the same sort of thread.
The main reason is there are abundant threads which state repeatedly old issues, old answers.
Honestly, I (and I guess others too) don't need them.

Constructive threads will be only constructive.
Helpful threads will be only helpful.
When all they publish in-context and should be unique one.

Im thinking like that. Unique and constructive and maybe little funny. Will do as best I can to promote and publish port unique and constructive as possible.

Yes,it is hard but not impossible.I too agree that the current merit system is unfair little bit but this is what we have to stop the signature spammers from polluting the forum with nonsense replies.Now they are forced to make some good quality content for the sake of rank up,so if you want to rank up try to get into the quality discussions with some contributions .

I don't understand what language is that,but if you know that he/she spamming then you can report that comment to the moderator then he may got temporary or permaban for that.

You will earn merits from other forum users for sure if you make constructive threads which can meet strict rules of those guys.
After that, you will receive bunches of merit points from someone who feel satisfy with your threads' contents.

By the way, I give you several helpful topics, including mine, which will help you to be more familiar with merit system and have higher advantages to compose better threads later:
TMAN's guide to getting merits
Full Member thanks to merit system (iasenko)
And this one is my topic on English textbooks collection (both vocabulary and grammar):
tbct_mt2's Guideline on some forum functions, English texbooks
Additionally, you should also try avoiding pyramid quotes and over-sized image attached in your threads. These two sort of lazy-composed threads will partially make your threads very annoying.

Let's start reading them, and doing your better threads next times.

I think this merit system is not really fair enough to new users, it's very hard to get merit for your post nowadays even if what you posted is of high quality. Merit holders may also be using the opportunity to open new accounts for themselves and be giving themselves merit to build the new account

Go ahead and show me a few newbies' posts with high quality, and I'll share a few merits with them. Keyword: high quality

That could be, but that's not a sustainable plan for the long run.  The way merits decay as they're being distributed sort of guarantees that.  What it comes down to right now is merit sources being picky about who they're giving merits to--and how many they're giving out.  There are some merit sources who routinely give out 20 merits for meh posts, and I'm sure shitposters know this and follow this particular one I'm thinking of around the forum, wherever he goes, hoping they'll get some of his overly-generous merit grants.

We'll see in time how this all plays out.  The merit system is still relatively young, and I'm not even sure that the airdropped sMerits have burned themselves out yet.

From what I know of him he checks out their entire post history and if he decides that they are here for the right reasons and they have made enough deserving posts he will drop 20 on a single post. The post maybe meh, but I don't see him dishing them out to shitposters.

In order to talk about this, we should define "High quality". It's hard to write anything that is not some old story, written hundreds of times. Even talking about projects has no lot of sense, since even sh*ttiest projects have lot of shillers and if you criticize them, you are stoned to death immediately.

I was admin of one forum and mod on few forums (none of them doesn't have anything with crypto) and all I wanted from people is to be decent normal person. IMO that's enough for someone to have right on avatar and signature.

I have no affiliate link, no bounty, no signature campaign... Only Proof Of Work!

This is true!

even if what you posted is of high quality.
This is not true Sad

If you add those two together, you'll end up with: "For most users, it's very hard to make high quality posts".

Unfortunately, this is true Sad
But those accounts risk getting red trust, and in the long run they'll run out of sMerit to give to their alts.

I thought the avatar and signature restrictions were overly-restrictive at first, but this forum is unusual - perhaps unique, even - in that you can get paid quite a bit for using either/both as advertising space. Once I noticed just how many of the newbies and jr. members were shilling some shitcoin or another in their sig while barely being able to spell bitcoin, I actually started thinking the current restrictions aren't enough. Honestly, this forum has a problem with spam, bots and shitposting that is truly like nothing else I have seen in 28 years of using the internet (since I first arrived at GaTech in 1990; obviously no WWW back then - it was all FTP and USENET, baby!).

I actually agree. If you could not have a signature or avatar until you get enough merits to be a member, you won't have three million newbies and juniors spamming every thread on BCT with one-sentence replies. Along of course with all the oddly off-topic replies and shilling by newbie and junior bots.

But then you would also need to crack down on merit abuse, where people create multiple accounts and merit themselves, or when people sell merit.

And finally, although the number these is not as great, but dealing with members prior to the merit system rolling in who automatically received more merit than the quality of their posts deserved. I see plenty of Sr and Hero members who post lots of crappy content.

Is there any statistics on merit-based rank changes? I'm pretty sure that less than 5% of full members got their rank because of merit. I see many users with 200+ activity and 0 to 5 merit. This system is nonsence, administrators could just stop assigning new ranks to anyone registered after certain date with virtually the same result.

Ranked-up members can be seen here on the  Merit Dashboard. Simply go into the "Ranked-Up" Tab and you’ll see all forum users profile names that have required merit to rank-up and achieved it.

In total, 2.439 people have managed it, making it to the following ranks:
    1 from Hero to Legendary
  11 from Sr. Member to Hero Member
  49 from Full Member to Sr. Member
   5 from Member to Sr. Member
  63 from Member to Full Member
    1 from Jr. Member or less to Sr Member
  35 from Jr. Member or less to Full Member (me included)
  2.274 from Jr. Member or less to Member

Not a large amount at all really, but the difficulty is at all levels really (Hero to Legendary looks like a steep path that only felines have been able to tackle so far).

In addition, check the tab called "Ranking-up Pipeline" to see how many users are how far from ranking up to their next level in terms of activity and/or merit.
