What about changing user profile merit page so it shows total of merit sent/received + number of users transacted with, i.e.:


Merit sent:         123 from 74 different users
Merit received:   115 from 92 different users


And, in addition, the "history" button that directs to the page with all the details of merit transactions (what is now the current Merit page).

Rationale:

You can calculate the total numbers right now, but it's going to be progressively harder as the time goes by.

Total numbers are simple and useful tool when you want to use merit score as a rough guide of user's constructiveness and contribution to the forum (i.e. for signature campaigns applicants).

Such numbers also help to quickly compare users based on points actually earned (adjusting for their initial distribution merit score).

Number of users transacted with also helps in detection of "anomalies" (aka trading points), i.e. 250 received merits but only from 4 users could suggest abuse or misuse of the system.

Thoughts?

ps. Idea is so simple, I wouldn't be surprised if someone suggested this before, but haven't seen it yet, so sharing.

This should be left to third party data aggregators. 

Almost two dozen victims identified in the case of the missing 2600 BTC  You can't unwatch this!
Previous investigations:  OG vs Lauda (2018)  OG vs TMAN (2017)  OG vs Owlcatz (2018)  OG vs Twitchyseal (2018)  OG vs Lutpin (2016)  After all these complaints, OG was removed as the sole forum treasurer in early 2019.

I think this is a good idea - I think it wll encourage people with sMerit to keep them in circulation.
The forum need a wide range of members to award merits, this will help to avoid bias.

In my opinion this make big sense to avoid merit abuse. The history of whom it came from and how many in the profile history can direct everyone that merit system is given with a clean motive to everybody without any form of malicious act. Well if that what happened I will really much appreciated the author of merit. Without any consent from communities merit comes from anywhere. Your idea sounds fair to everybody. This will be a justice to avoid some malicious action and abuse to give merit.

Actually I think merit is best for who received red trust. Without reaching the limit merit they can't rank up.
This is I think the best including your idea with fairness and justice. This can be clean form of governance in this forum.

Well, There are many cases like what you have been experienced recently. They are complaining on the official merit thread created by theymos but up until now there is no moves from admin to 'fix' your problem, because it is not a kind of unfairness. But theymos already stated on the official thread if someone really deserves to get the promotion to next rank (if they have been posting high quality posts up till now) then people should help that person.
Just keep doing the great work, learn English, leanr about cryptocurrency, make high quality posts, and I'm sure you can get your merits.

P.S : here is a link that maybe useful for you. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2832127.0 , it is a thread that has a list of all thread that can give you merit points if you do the job right.

This should be left to third party data aggregators. 

At the moment it's somewhat hard for third party data aggregators too because of the format and the anti-DDoS system.

Providing raw data for this would allow us having better stats from any 3rd party:

I think this is the perfect way to apply in merit system. Im thingking that it will be physically seen the merit goes in. Even though i don't feel yet the total effect of merit. But im telling the truth sir this is really nice. Seems you are very worthy having your rank with you.

I agree - maybe it will persuade some of the sMerit sources to just click on that award button when they see a good post.
