Merit system is introduced to nullified low quality posts in the forum. but something is going exactly opposite to this.
I am seeing more rubbish posts, as everyone is trying to make more and more posts which shows the insecurity among them.
As they all wants to show on the top of the discussion where they have a little opportunity of getting merit points.
Do merit system really make a difference in this forum?

Little by little, yeah. People are starting to post-to-discuss and not just to complete their requirements in campaign. People now are actually interacting and connecting, instead of ignoring the earlier posts. People are now thinking before the post cause they want each post to be meaningful. Because people now, if they want to rank up, need merits.

We can't control people and stop them from making threads (since this is an open forum) and it's not their fault they want to get noticed. But we can remind them not to do this.

Definitely Yes jerry! The hoard behind getting the merit points is very brutal. everyone wants merit points for the higher post on the forum & trying to all  the tactics to get the merit points because something is not going right.
I have seen some posts which are getting merit points for the rubbish. May be some posts have some meaning that describe only by the person. But taunting a person for a post may also give you 8 merit points. I am amazed.
And one post got 18 merit points from 5 person for writing nothing.

Take a positive side,I’m a newbie and i feel merit system can make a difference.i have been following this forum for months and noticed the increase of useless conversations and repeated posts,in a way this can be controlled.coming to merits,the chances can be low (or maybe not) but I think one doesn’t deny appreciating a good post having a chance.

I have noticed people saying it’s injustice to the newbies and high ranked members are benefited,which is absolutely wrong.they are just awarded for their efforts and credibility.injustice is done for newbies who deals with shitposting.in a long run it benefits the forum

Stop critizising a system that did not even have time to create any effect whatsoever, let alone prove whether it actually works or not.

Do merit system really make a difference in this forum?
It will make a difference. After a while, shitposters and whiners such as yourself will notice that they efforts are a waste of time and produce nothing. Therefore, they will gradually quit/stop and the place will become better.

Definitely Yes jerry!

Hehh I dont really care about merits i feel. I have accepted the fact that I will probably be stuck as full member for life. This forum really offers lot of information about anything crypto related from mining to airdrop to news and i think having access to all this is a merit in itself as after all, crypto is not the primary focus of my life.

'Merit' is the worst introduced system to this forum. The sooner the admin realise this , the better for the forum. But because of 'Ego' they wont accept the bitter truth that 'Merit' is a crap system and they will try to continue with this system regardless..

Now wait for some high ranked members ( Who actually DID NOT earn the merit, got it by default instead) come here and start bashing the posters who say something against the merit system. They will then start arguing to say how good is this crap system bla bla....

Some newbies will also create some thread praising this crap system. Because they already realised the easiest way to get merit is to praise 'Merit' system Lol... Grin

Do you have a reasonable and understandable post? you should get some merits for it. find a merit source and ask for a review, if they have the time to review your posts, you should get your merits. reasonable and understandable.

I think you are right about the part that people are trying to post more so that they get noticed. This may not give them merit points ( if they are posting rubbish) but it is harming the forum for sure. Another reason in addition to this is that we still have the activity requirement. Suppose  a member gets the desired number of merit points for some posts, he will then add some shit posts to reach the activity required for next level.

Everyone can express his opinion about the new system whether he likes it or not. Regarding changing the system, admin is already making improvements like adding more merit sources.

I think merit system just created a misunderstanding and bad use of this new option. This function exists for some days and already became a reasons of many arguing and complains. My own I think that moderators and managers of the forum who agreed for merit system thought about all possible results of this, so it is just can't be unnecessary thing. I hope with time we will understand it better and will learn to live with that normally without any panic and arguing.

It's not, it makes no sense. They can post 100 posts per day without any of them being constructive or without quality whatsoever, and with all those posts they won't be able to rank up.

Give the new system some time, it will all clear up. Tho spamming is obsolete now, the only thing I see going on will be the account selling prices going up.

I have discussed about this one in another topic:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2873832.msg29536389#msg29536389

~
Recently, new/ lower ranked users tend to create new topics on merits or post new threads in those topics with the hope that higher ranked users will send them sMerits for joining, posting, discussing their ideas. I am not sure that all of those topics/ threads which created/ posted by new accounts are high-quality ones. Nevertheless, they simply did it and kept their hope. That's the fact of the forum recent days (about 1 week after the launch of merit system). I believe that over time (might be 1 or 2 months), they will realise that using the approach won't help them to get sMerits, then they will stop creating spamming topics and posting almost identical threads.

Let the forum a little bit more time to adjust itself and let users more time to realise the mechanism of merit system.

Yep, in order to have a healthy forum everyone needs to be engaging with each other in a real discussion. There are countless threads out there with 100s of posts that all respond with the exact same message because the person posting on page 30 didn't even bother to read through page 1 to see if there was a similar response. Just a bunch of mindless posts being thrown out there, but now with the merit system we might actually see more people actually engaging with each other.

Time will tell on if the merit system actually works. I believe it will

Once they realize that it takes too much effort for such a little payoff, the flood of shitposts (and new shit-topics) will stop, that's my guess.  These pajeets are not hard-working writers, nor are they creative.  There's no way they could earn merit with what they write, so there's no way in hell any of them are going to get any unless they purchase it or have an alt account give it to them.  

The merit system is still very new, and people are still playing around with it.  The pajeets will figure out that it's not the lucrative game it was just a couple weeks ago, where they could post any lazy shitpost and get paid for it.  Just be patient and this will work itself out.
You are a pajeet poster who is trying to use 20 words when 1 will do.. you won't get any merits
I've noticed a lot of this when I was tagging shitposters.  There were a LOT of padded shitposts, and you could tell after the 5th word that the pajeet had exhausted its vocabulary and was just repeating the word "bitcoin" like a broken record.

The merit system braught many good posts, high quality and helpful. But it seems, there are still not enough sources. Maybe it would be senseful to allocate sources for each section.

And another pajeet trying to hard. Seems like they have all swallowed a thesaurus since the merit system was introduced

Trying out the new system.

So many signature + avatar campaigns that require minimal amount of posts.

Another step would be a Chrome extension to fully hide certain users... Maybe something like this already exists
