Just posting a suggestion for the senior members. Considering the huge amount of shitposting in most sub forums, especially the altcoin ones, would it be useful, if one were to incentivise users who report with 100% accuracy? Like reward them with Merits? Benefits would be;

- Less shitposting, scam posts etc
- More vigilant community (especially newbies)

Thanks

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

Reporting is optional and I think it is better to keep it the way as it is. You should report to keep the forum clean being a part of it, not for a reward.

In addition, if reporting people would let you have some merit, you'll focus on hunting these shit posters instead of creating quality posts. Which is not aligned with the intention of mods creating a better forum with members who posts with quality and reward them with merit. Although the idea is great, it's just that people would have an alternative in making quality posts.

Possibly. I mean, I've seen users reporting shady activity here on Meta and getting merited for it. I have no idea if they used the report function before posting though.

I personally think it's a good idea, but it seems like we don't really have enough moderators to check out all the reports (I often see people complain that their reports get ignored), and this is going to create a massive influx of reports that will almost certainly contain a lot of inaccuracy. We probably need more moderators before pushing through with something like this.

It depends on what you want. When you think that reporting is something that can make things better then do it. You are free to choose to make this forum much better.

We are all here contributing to each other and we are competing so that we can produce useful things.

Also, just think of a situation where members start competing with each other by submitting as many reports as possible. Will give headache to the moderators.

There is already a reward for them. If there is some vacancy for staff, those members are given preference. (Information based on response of a senior member here. )
