I agree on this point, the only real pity is that the merit system has not been implemented already a year ago, before the demographic explosion of the the alts accounts - I guess for reasons of bounties. To procrastinate further the adoption of this necessary measure could have been fatal for the forum.
On the other side, if I may joke on that, merit the worse thing that happened to old high ranked users who were about to rank up Smiley

The admin made some adjustments for such unlucky members.

Only for Hero Members with over 750 activty, my dear, and if you don't believe me look at my activity and compare it with my rank Wink
Jokes apart, theymos has in fact mentioned once that also lower high ranking members who were about to grow in rank at the moment of the change of rules should eventually be given the missing merits after a rewiew of their posting history, or something like that, but I didn't see any traces on the forum of this having ever happened, at least no-one has mentioned cases in this meta area of the forum.

Overall I am also happy with the new merit system. As more and more people start to learn about the new rules, they will think twice before making useless posts.
Yes and many beginners will learn the quickest way as possible with the use of merit system. Because there are many beginners that tend to post useless to rank up quickly.

Perseverance,eagerness and attitude that the OP possess made him a great poster.This should be an example for all the people who keeps on complaining about the merit system.Besides, the system itself is not the problem but the people who can't accept it and makes this community worse.

I think it's a good thing happen with all members in this forum , not only new members but theymos actually needs a tweak on reducing the requirement merit for Member and Full Member cause in my personality , it's quite high.

It's the best update, now the new users will be able to learn more quickly and will post quality posts and that will help them get more merit points based upon their quality Post.

So, for me to understand this new merit system is that if your new, you need to really dig in and read what's happening in this community, once you, as a newbie, need to contribute to topics. I'm not quite sure if a "Newbie" will have the knowledge that, let say....A Hero Member has.
Newbies and those who do post quality posting, still are relying on the Peer's of this Forum (upper ranked) members who we giving Merits to give to those in this community. 
I dont see the logic? I've been with the community since September of last year and I've really started to involve myself into this community. I've been reading much on the Merits and how they are given and how a person can rank up. It does seem a bit unfair.

I'm sure that someone with Higher Merits will respond to this posting but the thing is. Even if this is a "Quality" post. I'll be pasted up. I gave my only Merit I could to the person who made this topic. I'm writing because I feel like it wont matter if I write a quality post or not. it's left up to the "Peers" of this community and I dont see them giving anyone much of anything.

So now I'll still continue to post and do other things like Bounty but I have and will still continue to post in here for my knowledge to the Newbies.

Based on the things I've said above....Newbies dont be discourage. If you truly believe in a topic then dont be afraid to post. Dont do it for a Merit but rather do it because you are contributing to the community. 
Thank you for this topic. I at least feel good that I posted a "Quality" Post but I'm not worries about this community. It's All Good.

1) You are agreeing that newbie has less knowledge and thus it is justified if he does not get merits for initial posts. He can always learn and improve.

2) Upper ranked members do not much merits to give. Major portion will come from merit sources who are appointed by admin (and thus expected to be neutral or fair).
