Were you one of the lucky 20?!
I wouldn't bump this if I was.

More seriously, if you were to become a merit source, what your criteria be for the following?
  • Reviewing posts around the forum (there are a lot of boards!)
  • Assessing the merit-worthiness of a post
  • Determining how much merit to give a post
Kinda like how I created this thread: I won't read boards that I'm not interested in, and I will Merit posts just like I do now. I would, however, increase the number of Merit per post such that I'm close to using all sMerit per month. I now usually give just 1, sometimes 2, and an exceptional 5, as I am in no rush to run out and be unable to Merit good posts later on.

I will Merit posts just like I do now.

Ok, asked a different way...how do you merit posts now?

  • What criteria calls your attention?
  • How do you determine how much to give?
  • What do you use as a guide or ideal post to compare all other posts to?

You don't mention any of those details in your original post.

It's quite simple: I merit posts that I deem worthy. Have a look at my Merit summary to see which posts I've merited.

Quote

I don't have fixed criteria, I'd go crazy if I have to keep a checklist like that. I think it's quite obvious which posts should or shouldn't receive merit.

Quote
How do you determine how much to give?
Quite simply: just one. Unless it's a Newbie making a large effort, then I give two. And I gave five once for someone who answered something that an hour at Google couldn't.

Quote

Lol what? I'm not looking for "ideal posts".

Theymos didn't ask for it.

That's the only way to do it in my opinion. It's very subjective, just like my ignore list, but I think there is such a diversity of merit awarders, that it gives anyone who makes a reasonable and interesting post the chance to gain merit.

sometime it is enviable to see someone who barely can differentiate between walking stick and blockchain can afford to have huge ignore list.

I just keep bumping this, as I have no idea whether or not theymos has seen the thread.
It seems the first batch of Merit sources was quickly processed, and since then Merit sources have been stuck at 57 in total.

We're up to 80 merit sources at this point. That means you've got to be somewhere in line for processing. I've already given my endorsement, but it seems kind of silly that there is no way of knowing whether or not you've been viewed, reviewed, processed or rejected. The only answer you will be aware of is if and when it is a "yes". I would like some more transparency on this front, as it leaves less room for confusion and us sitting here in a daze. I imagine you haven't been accepted, because I haven't seen an increase in your merit sending; plus this thread is still open and being bumped.

The first batch(es) were probably, if I had to guess, done in some kind of order of necessity. Local-boards probably are getting priority as theymos originally mentioned. I would assume theymos is trying to spread the sources out based on their activity, which is going to make it increasingly difficult to become a source that primarily roams around the "main" boards. I'll quit my rambling, I just wanted to give my opinion on there being no notifications or information on the status of your own application, besides what can be described as an educated guess.

Side-Note, why do you think they seem to come in batches of acceptance rather than one at a time? That behooves me a bit, unless theymos sets aside a particular chunk of time to bang out a bunch of applications and always manages to find multiple sources within that pile.

I too can only guess Tongue
This was based on two things:
1. Madz' Unofficial merit source application thread got processed once:
<Table updated -theymos>[/center]

2. I've seen the number of Merit sources jump up by large numbers a few times (although it went from 79 to 80 too).

I think your criteria to select reserved post to be rewarded merit is more clear to me just not expressed clearly
Please don't post very long off-topic posts. Even worse: you're crossposting.

It's been 2.5 months since I opened this topic. It has been read by at least one Global Moderator and one Staff member (I know this because they left merit). All I want now, is a reply from theymos Smiley

Yeah, the cabal needs a fresh source of merits, Theymos. Don't be a party pooper. Or else this thread will get bumped for a year!

I would like to join the other top-merited users of all time in this thread in endorsing @LoyceV as an excellent choice to become a merit source.

It's kind of awkward, honestly, to see certain merit sources (well, just one) voicing their particular methods in how they disperse merit while highly-criticizing others' methods and insulting them in slanderous ways. All the while, @LoyceV is sitting patiently twiddling their thumbs and undoubtedly sitting on a list of posts that are waiting to be merited Tongue

Do the forums a solid and make it happen, @theymos!

I think that I read a comment by Theymos that he was looking for merit sources that didn't have paid signatures. I can't find the post though. I wonder if this is a factor in his decision making.

I've checked his post history back until the introduction of merit, and can't find it. The only thing he mentions is that new users with 0 merit will never be able to have a link in their signature (here).
Many Mods have some sort of paid signature too, and I know at least one signature campaign manager who is a merit source.

I wonder where I got that idea then. It must have been somebody else posting in one of the threads.

I didn't know about the 0 merit restriction. That sounds like a good idea.

Well that thread generated some merits for the initial posters. Smiley

There are at least three signature campaign managers that are sources so that indicates it isn't a restriction.

I didn't know about the 0 merit restriction. That sounds like a good idea.

theymos changed Jr. Members signatures to not be able to have clickable links in them about 3 or 4 days before merit was introduced. In retrospect that was a clue something was about to happen. Effectively 10 Merit is the minimum requirement to get into a signature campaign, although some of the scammy ICO campaigns just let them in with a text version of the URL.

LoyceV would make an excellent source and I hope he gets added soon.

He seems to be very committed to Bitcoin Talk, and is active on the boards. He also has the ability to assess posts, and the responsibility to respect the ability to award merits. I'm on his side as well. Smiley
