Merited by di.ako.toh (1)
 #21

Hero and Legendary members of this forum have a high number of sendable merits maybe they send it to one of the posts because the post of that one he has merited has really contributed and helped him in his/her transaction let us analyze first before we make an assumption and build up a possible conclusion because we might damaging the reputation of someone without proper evidenced.

I posted to suggest another possibility. Human nature manifests itself in a variety of forms. Smiley

I believe the answer is to restrict merit awards to a maximun of 2 at a time, or possibly 5, but certainly no more than that.
It would  impact in two ways,
    Good Impact : It would stop users from sending fake merits as 50 for single line posts.
     Bad Impact : It would allow shit posters to do more one line posts so they can get multiple merits points by their fake senders.This would indeed increase shit-posting on the forum.

Those posts are to generate sig views, rather than to earn merits in my opinion. The answer to that is stricter moderation.

There are still some cheating gaps that can be done, but if we can be selective and also watch over I think it can be reduced. I have seen a lot of events and this proves that the level of merit buying is still found. Indeed we should not think negatively and should think that it is the appreciation that is gained when there are others who feel helped. But clearly for me a post shit is not worth it to get merit. So it can be said that every post that gets merit points should be supervised and investigated about the truth. If it can be applied and there is a real action then we will be able to further reduce scammers and spammers in this forum.

If merit abuse becomes prevalent, I can see a time when the awarding of merits will require a short message of justification, and that will slow down the whole process. Maybe this could be introduced for all awards over a small number - say 2.

Look at this Turkish circle jerk: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2895261.msg29766601#msg29766601. They wasted a ton of merit on his useless trash.

Any translators?

Why you need translator now, when you already make up your mind that "They wasted a ton of merit on his useless trash."

After watching the "highest merit replies", I've noticed that a majority are in local Turkish or Russian topics, other languages are non existent or rare. Also, the comments that are given +50 merit, are usually some one liners. Has anyone looked into that or..?
If you found someone please report them in a topic with meta here, i do believe there are TONS of people who came from turkey and russia here are ready to help you figure those posts out are cheating or not for sure. If they're cheating, permanent ban will be the punishment.

They are doing it until they get caught, wait for the time when DT members will reward them with negative trust or they will be banned by forum staff or administrators.
BTW don't worry Staff already knows about this issue.

You can take it as a joke but it isn't.
How is this even possible that being a staff member(suppose) i am unaware of the problems roaming around the forum?

Mostly this are people who are negotiating with someone who are in badly need of merit points because their nearing on ranking up which is why they are really in deep need of merit points. Which is why if we found someone abusing the merit system like doing something like this we should immediately report this to the moderators, but before we do such things make sure we gather enough evidenced because we might actually damage someone's reputation in the forum even though they are innocent here.
But negotiating for merit is not allowed, because giving merit was depending on the quality of post you been made. Sharing and giving merit as exchange of anything was so annoying, because more users are still continue posting with good quality but the others are earning merit due to fraud. Moreover you have a point we can easily report to the moderators the people or users who abusing merit system.
Buying, sharing, exchanging those are kind of cheating to gain merits, all we need is a knowledge, informative and quality posts. Just try to expand our knowledge regarding posting and don't depends to the traditional way of making posts. Because most of the users are looking for the posts when they are get a lot of information.

This is definitely needed. Merits are limited and there is huge competition for merits. I think merit sources are aware of the fact that they need to spend merits carefully. But members are sending in bulk.

I found some new topics that speak the same but in different threads, should we make one trhead just to be easy to find. for example creating a thread containing a special report of the point smerit. so after giving smerit just report onthe thread.is this a good plan, please consider. thanks.

That would mean the 57 members who get sMerit every month would need to find loads more quality posts to get rid of their merits in time.
