I'm not too sure about this new merit system.  Although these boards have been getting a lot more spam, it will be much more difficult to level up your bitcointalk account.  Most people are not even going to bother and give out merit to quality posts.

What are your thoughts, do you like the new merit system?
I don't like. Because don't understand how i can get Merit if i am a beginner and can't write posts of high quality.

You get Merit when you write quality posts. Someone appreciate your post and give you merit point. The bottom line is if you write spam no one will ever give you Merit, but if you write good quality posts, that help other members, they will give you Merit and you will up rank.

This is certainly great,thus reduce the amount of spam. But while it is almost impossible to get a new rank. When merit has just appeared , I was on one of the threads asked the question,asked to explain me the situation and what me to do(I was then lowered in rank and on the same day returned it)I was even accused that I beg some merit for me Smiley

This system is very unfair, it highly favors the older users. A lot of these higher rank users ranked up by posting short messages.  It's exponetially harder to level up now, most people won't even bother t osend out merit.  Then you throw in the fact that people are going t osell merit and corrupt the whole system.

I agree with you, this new system cannot be justified, it will only benefit the old members that are already enjoying high ranks without the need for merit.

I totally agree; There is no way for me to achieve the next position of Full Member (I'd need 90 merit...), not talking about higher positions.

Of course, only legendaries are happy with this new system, so they can make high rewarding campaign, keeping away the concurrence.
(please note the most of them are pure shitposters, chek their posts...).
The only hope is that Theymos will understand that the system is unsustainable also from a mathematical point of view: merits after some time will disappear, so...no more merits at all.
We'll see.

Looks like this new system will make it almost impossible for new members to reach higher ranks, sounds like a monopoly by the typical beaurocracy to stop the public from getting its rights, we are fedup of our governments and systems in our lives already and now we are refused freedom in the online world in this forum as well, we have been deprived of our rightful ranks, it is time to speak up against this brutal new system. There were many other options to stop spam and shitposts, just minus the activity point per spam or shitposts, and if someone post more than 3 spam or shitposts per week then he can be suspended from posting for next week. But implementing a stopping system is against democracy and freedom of the forum members, i personally want this system to be removed and restore the old system.

It was not unfair just consider it as a new challenge to improve your post. Because most of the users in bitcointalk are joining because they just want to earn money. This principle's can't consider of this sites they do this merit systems to see how people level up their quality of post.

It's not true: there is not enough merits to disposition: as member, I've just ONE to give. Then, stop. Oh, and I've to receive TWO to give ONE.
So, merits will disappear in short time (the mining proposed can't compensate).
So, even you write masterworks, no one will have merits to offers.
I'm pretty sure the system will change; because it doesn't make other sense than to give unfair privileges to old members.

i think its a good system. i read today the first posting about it in the meta section. i wonder why so many people are so angry about the new system. the system is new and only time will tell if the system works good or not. my question is can a normal user of this forum apply as a merit source?

I understand that, but merit even for good posts rarely give because they are sold. Why would a man just to put merit, if he can sell it?

THis merit is good to prevent bad comments on different threads but it may have a bad impact on the new users of bitcointalk as they have to face lot of competition now. Their ranks will increase if both activity and merit increases. now if they don't get merit points from anyone they they may buy these points from another users. I think that nobody in this world will donate these merit points to anyone without any his own gain.

Bounties are really important part of a forum but they also cause of low quality messages on forum. Because of the some bounty campaigns, last month was a mess. Post qualities were terrible. I hope merit system will hinder spamming and rank farming.

I think that this topic is not for the altcoins section. But anyway, I think that Merit system should be a little but upgraded. What is the sense for me as a high ranked member to give away my merits? Maybe I'm just don't used to do it, but if there will some reward system for giving out merits it would be great.

I have a doubts that everyone will use it and good posts may just sink in trash posts and nobody would give them any merit. From the other hand some ppl may start creating high quality posts.

But the situation may develop in such a way that one tries,writes good,thoughtful posts,but others just don't notice it in a great many other equally good posts! And what to do then?

I prefer myself to be quite for now about this one and I choose to wait and see the result for the coming results before giving my opinion. What I know every comment opposite to this side can't change of what is already given.

I'm not sure if the merit system will be effective to prevent spammers, the fact there are still many useless posts in this board such as "great project" "I'm interested to join" "good job dev" "it has great future" and many other similar posts made by (mostly) newbie and brand new accounts.
On other hand, it will be effective to prevent account farming because it is now hard to rank up as users need both activity points and merit points to rank up.

It somehow had to happen. Remember what was the influx of new users, which was the reason for the failure of the forum servers. The forum administration was forced to introduce a system of merit
