The new merit system has had some value.

I went back and looked at previous postings:
       -   25% of my posts are shitposts   (These can stop)
       -   30% of my posts are trying to be funny, but few ‘get me’  (Its in my DNA, can’t stop)
       -   The rest are asking for info, answering someone else’s request, or ‘suggesting’ improvements to a vendor for poor ordering system.

But the real benefit to me is learning just how valuable the signature campaigns are!

I have not been around too long, and didn’t pay any attention to signature campaigns.  I think I checked once and it seemed to be chump change ($.50 cents a post or something like that).

But when I look at the sigs of some hero/legendary posters:

Chipmixer: up to 50 posts/week at .00075btc (say BTC was 12k) - $450/week! https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1935179.0

Dock.io  $150/week https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2770108.0

Fortunejack, as much as $720/week.  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1713944.0

I joined to learn more on Bitcoin and Altcoins, and improve my ability to mine, now I realize, there is more.

So.. it works! The merit system has opened my eyes to

       -   Some poor posting habits
       -   Other ways to make income in bitcoin
       -   The fact that I need to venture out from just the mining threads I normally travel to.
 
I wish I had learned these before the merit system though!

I feel this not a feel good shitpost for at least a couple of reasons:
-   Informing others about the value of Sig’s (am I the last to know?)
-   Adding a small voice of positive to the wail of negative (before complaining, review your posts)

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Oh Woww...Merit has opened your eyes. You have yourself admitted 25% of your posts were  shit. So now you realize if you continue shit posting there is no way you can grow in this forum so now you will do quality posting.

This means you have the ability to do quality posting but due to no check and balance you opted for shit posts and easy money.

Merit system is making a big change around the forum. Users have started to try as much possible to give quality posts. This will probably give good support to the growth of bitcoin as well without spreading of FUD. Because before the merit system into existence people just make posts speculating about the market even without any sort of analysis. Now will at least try to study more about the market.

I didn't check OP's old posts, but at least he put some effort into this one, which is what everyone should be doing regardless of whether they're in a campaign or not. 

And hell yes, some campaigns are extremely lucrative.   I'm very grateful for the one I'm in, and it's an insult to everyone when you're in a campaign and post lazy one-line garbage.  Sadly, a lot of folks do the bare minimum and wonder why they get booted, blacklisted, or negged. 

I didn't come to bct to earn money, believe it or not--I came to post.  That's almost unheard of these days.

       -   25% of my posts are shitposts   (These can stop)

This is common with lot of members here and the new system should be able to tackle this.

       -   30% of my posts are trying to be funny, but few ‘get me’  (Its in my DNA, can’t stop)

There is no harm in this. Provided you are on topic, I guess this only increases your chances of getting more merits.

       -   The rest are asking for info, answering someone else’s request, or ‘suggesting’ improvements to a vendor for poor ordering system.

I do not see an issue with this as well but make sure that you do not repeat a query already asked before.

Yeah thats whats everyone is doing including me. We are trying to increase our posting quality and habits and there is no other way around if we want to survive here. You can see my last 50 posts which are of good quality as compare to previous ones. (Although i do care for my opinion and do not care if any High privileged members like or dislike it)

Yes merit system opened our mind to improved post quality in the forum,we should learn and making constructive  of how we can have merit.Those post that help in forum and can increase our rank.All of us try to change ourself into a good one.

Welcome to the club of the enlightened ones. However, this alone is not sufficient. The posts that you create after this one will be those that matter more, and you're going to get *judged* for them.

I feel this not a feel good shitpost for at least a couple of reasons:
-   Informing others about the value of Sig’s (am I the last to know?)
-   Adding a small voice of positive to the wail of negative (before complaining, review your posts)
Yes, and no. Given how many threads have been created about the merit system, yes. Given its content, i.e that it isn't the usual whining from a shitposter, it is not one.

It is a very complicated situation. An old hero member can post shitty message by old the time and be a hero member. And a new member can post a high quality messages and don't have even one merit.

In the long run, even that hero member will suffer. Suppose, you are campaign manager and have to choose between two profiles:

1) One who reached hero level with earned merits.

2) One who got hero level by default and continues to make shit post.

Hope you got the answer.

Also being tagged as one-line garbage shitposter made me realize how poorly I was posting lately. I was angry at a first glance but then I moved on.
It really worked to me, now I think twice before posting anything.

In summary, the Intel Management Engine and its applications are a backdoor with total access to and control over the rest of the PC. The ME is a threat to freedom, security, and privacy, and the libreboot project strongly recommends avoiding it entirely. Since recent versions of it can’t be removed, this means avoiding all recent generations of Intel hardware. details https://libreboot.org/faq.html#intelme --- https://tehnoetic.com/laptops --- https://store.vikings.net/x200-ryf-certfied

Now that you are already at the highest, why do you need merits ? I think there should be requirement for each level to get some amount of merits per six months or so.
