I have a suggestion or maybe a crazy idea for some. Since the launch of the merit system, there are plenty of people wondering about its effectiveness against spammers and there's the threat of selling/trading merit that 'may' defeat its purpose. Plenty of people agreed and said that its a good idea and some are hesitant because its just give High Rank account more advantage and also newbie creating good post might likely be ignored and wouldn't be given merits.

So I'm wondering if a Giveaway thread be allowed? Making newbies and other forum members participate a friendly discussion/debate or whatsoever in which they can reply a quality post meant to be merited if and only if the thread starter/admin/mod find his/her reply a good one. Shitposters that clearly just post shit will immediately earn negative Merit or neg Trust. This can be a Thread or a Section or a Contest?

Advantage:
Newbies who likes to comment quality post will have a chance to be noticed on this thread since the thread is for merits. I see people commenting on the Merits post on theymos that most likely they will just be ignored and wont be given merits even if they have quality post, so this might solve that.
 
People will try to engage on that certain thread to reply in good quality and we will have a good conversation.

Smerit People - they won't be having difficulty looking for good quality post since there's a thread in which you can browse and can freely giveaway your smerit if you feel like being generous. Of course you can still give smerits to other sections or threads on forum.

I know the idea is flawed but if people can add something with this idea it would be great. I'm not good in conveying my thoughts so probably I will never get a merit to any of my post which I think is the problem with other people or newbies here but I would want the merit system to be more newbie friendly or atleast for those that try to engage and have a quality post.

I don't get why we require a dedicated thread for this? And what exactly would people write in there? Anything as long as it's constructive? Sounds like it'd be an off topic mess to me. Why can't they just contribute to decent discussion in any of the other thousands of threads? This just seems like it'd turn into a merit begging thread. If you want merit then make decent well-thought out posts and you'll get it eventually.

That's not so easy as it sounds when there is bias involved. Roll Eyes

I get your point. But that's also what people are scared of, like they are posting quality post but are still ignored. How many new people have been merited now for their good post?
Also if this section or dedicated thread cannot be implemented that's okay so I'll just ask a different question. So how about if I start a thread that says please tell me "Which is your favorite coin and why, I will give merit to whoever has the best answer/explanation"
is that allowed?

Ill throw you a bone as a newbie.. this is a one time offer to you only... (if anyone else PM's Me ill Neg them for begging)  

Post for a week, the posts need to be constructive, add to the community, provide value or make me laugh....

in a week PM me, ill check your threads and will give you upto 20 Merits..

if you have any "shitposts" (I will have a campaign manager judge the posts as well as myself) you will get nada.. I would also encourage any other Veteran Members to chuck the odd bone out like this to spread a bit of the merit love to the non shitposting 3rd world.. Everyone needs a chance

Thank you for your offer, I appreciate it. You are sweet. I just wanted to speak what is on my mind. While I'm also concerned with my merit I am more concerned with other people here in the community that are trying but might have no chance. Will the others gets a chance like this? Probably not.

im not the only one who has sMerit and wants this place to be a better place.

I think you will find in the coming weeks that some of the veteran members will be looking after the newbies who add value, learn about BTC and alts and add value to this place

Do you think hard work will get unnoticed in log run ? I agree that 4-5 posts might get ignored but if you are only making quality posts, you can definitely expect merit points. I have seen this concept on various forums under different names and it was successful.
