I agree with that but best thing is that there will be activated accounts only. Neither spam nor inactive account s will be there.

This is a problem that cannot be tackled by merit system completely. Different spammers have different purposes here. Some are here to be eligible for signature campaigns. Now that signature campaigns are also having some requirements related to merits, those will be controlled. But some spammers are here who use new accounts to bump their own promotional threads. They are not concerned about merits at all as they do not need it. Another type of spammers are those are making accounts and building potential activity to sell that account later.

Meritorious replies sometimes helps to spot out scam replies too. I heard about it once

I think you mean merited replies here. Smiley You are right about this. A lot of members here started giving merits in bulk to their friends or alt accounts just to rank up those accounts. I really do not see any point in the admin allowing members to be able to send 50 merit points for a single response. It  looks like that the admin might have left this loophole intentionally so as to trap the scammers. If he makes this thing clear in the next update and issues permanent bans for such accounts, I will be the happiest soul on the earth.

Let me quote all posts you made after posting this reply here :

You should have quality posts and for that you need to have enormous venture in btc world

Not a bad idea at all. But will manager enforce it?

I now know that love is having a girl in life whose tears runs only for you on your collar and her smile is only the cause of your happin

Looks like some people are not going to improve at all. If you did a lot of research for making those posts, I advise you to save that time and utilize it for something more important for yourself.

As for me not much considered system of motivation to write good posts. After all, merit can be regarded as a resource. And any resource can be sold, buy, give, take, and so on . Don't get me wrong, but you'd better make merit more personal.

Yes that would be fine if it weren't for the fact that no matter how much I try to help and be useful in this space, nobodies handing out any Merit. I feel like it's allot of work trying to appease people and getting nothing for it.

<...>

I’d say that life is possibly unfair in general. Depending on when and where were born, your focus and odds in life change radically and it is up to you to try to change that situation. Obviously, your personal environment is going to play its role here, as are your relations with other people. We were not all born clones of each other and thus life spans out in different ways for each of us.

The same thing happens here. We were not all created as users from an initial genesis at the same time. The higher ranks have been around for some time and that needs to count for something. Of course you’ll find counter examples of high ranked members that still carry on with their non-contributive posting habits like in the old days, but these I have encountered to be not that many really.

The forums has moved on from a trivial no-brainer ranking-up system, to a meritocracy. That is obviously going to be more difficult, but like as stated, so is life and so we need to adapt.

Merit as not only the best thing that happened to me users, it spread its goodness down to even old members whose post quality has been really bad and full f scam. It has so far helped to correct this issue of low post quality and everyone now looks out to becoming better posters.

The best thing that merit system has affected new users (newbies) in the forum is stopping them to start such non-sense topic.
Newbies should spend their time to read more topics, especially from Jet Cash, TMAN, Lauda, etc.
For newbies' starts, I suggest they should read those following helpful topics:
1) Newbies – Read before posting (Lauda)
2) TMAN's guide to getting merits
3) Tips – Guides for forum search This one is extremely important for newbies.
4) Unofficial rules of bitcointalk forum Please read it to avoid unexpected violations on forum rules.

Such an author post really deserves a lot of merits, for he wrote all the pluses that appeared with the implementing of this system. In fact, I thought the same thing, and it's amazing that I'm not alone. Excellent thread, good luck!

I feel the need to say something about there "I agree with you" posts, because it's annoying me more than merit posts by themselves.

Look, we know what merit does and why's it implemented, just as well we know that the post is good because of merit given to him. There's no need for you to point the obvious to us.

Merit is not there to be chased after, because no matter how hard you try, if you can't post quality posts you won't get merit. Also, no one's forcing anyone to post quality posts. Can you post one liners and "I agree" posts? Yes. Therefore no one's forcing you but you won't get far with that.

One more thing. Think of merit as something of a marker. Don't pay attention to it, don't write just for merit and don't stress about it that much, because that number depends only on you and you can't force it to go up.

OP post with the needed information will be able to get the merits all the time in this section especially. Other than meta local boards like Russians, Philippines and other local boards are getting more merits.
But for getting merits you need to give the new updates and statistical information which is useful for this forum.
I understand the worries from the Newbies. They cannot able to rank up easily now since the merit system is between the activity.

Its quite worrisome to be reduced to newbie after months of staying in bitcoin. I do think this development will be of help to newbie at least to be able to read other people's post before posting theirs. The main problem is that everybody wants to post and those that have merits are finding it difficult to give out their merits
