Changed the title.  As I think this is best spot for thread.

I have given 1 merit point   I will give  25  away on this thread.  I decided to do this as I read a few other threads with merit point giveaways.




Made it public  as I would like  to allow altcoin mining community to chime in I also do not want to make waves.

I want to have a merit point give away  thread  designed for altcoin miners.

I am basing it on this thread  and my  posts with op of this post.


I don’t have much Merit to give but I’m going to give it up until it’s all gone. I’m not sure if this is the right section for this thread because I’m not really selling anything. It’s about accounts so I’ll just leave it here until someone decides to move it. I don’t know if this is wrong to do. I don’t care if I get negative trust for doing this because I don’t buy anything here, sell anything here, join signature campaigns or post routinely in threads that even show the trust rating. Essentially I don’t make money here so I don’t use trust anyway.

I felt sorry for SOME of the members that posted in the merit thread. They seemed to be fairly articulate, fairly knowledgeable, rational and really trying to be members of this group of dreamers (community).

Here’s how it’s going to work. You’re not just going to beg for merit and I give it. Do not PM me and offer to pay me for merit points. Your money means nothing to me. I have given away more bitcoin than you will likely earn while on this forum (just ask Gleb Gamow if you don’t believe me). I will report you to a mod that will give you negative trust for being a potential scammer. You will ask me to research your post history and direct me to 10-20 posts that you believe show you have a deep desire to learn about, use, and support bitcoin. I will then ask you a couple of questions about how bitcoin works and you will answer them. I don’t care if you take some time to research the answer if you come up with the correct answer. That just means I’ve made you learn more about bitcoin than you knew previously.

Bitcoin does not mean altcoin. I know altcoins are more popular on this forum than bitcoin. I don’t care. I will only help bitcoiners level up. If most of your post history is in altcoin threads I won’t help you. I do not consider Bitcoin Cash to be bitcoin. If you don’t know what the real bitcoin is then you haven’t been here long enough for me to help you. Which leads me to the group I’m willing to help.

New members, Newbies, Jr Members and Members don’t need any merit. They don’t have enough post history to judge so I won’t be helping them.

Full members, Sr. Members and Hero Members really got screwed with the merit system. Some of them were really close to leveling up and now have to wait until they’ve impressed the right person to probably get only one merit point from them. The most extreme case of this is Hero Member. They may need hundreds of merit points to level up which could take a very long time to get.

You will be working for 20 merit points. Good luck to all. I will announce when they’re gone and lock the thread.

If you don't care about the things i care about, just go away..
Wow! How..er..um..Legendary?
Sheesh.


I gave you a merit point.

I think you are correct .

I do not think the op is correct to exclude altcoin and reward bitcoin .  But I also think he is entitled to give his points anyway he wants since the points are his to give. Meanwhile enjoy the merit.

I’ve said before in this thread that I don’t know enough about altcoins to be able to judge the quality of their participation but you do. I would love to see one of these type threads start in the altcoin section and one in each local sub for non English speaking people.

Why don’t you start a thread in altcoin discussion since you’ve been a core altcoin person for a long time? It would be a great service to your community and it would help people become involved in altcoins. Or, if not you, maybe you know someone that could do it.

I gave you 1 point   as it is a good suggestion  and I will take you up on it.



You da man. Thanks

Edit: oh, let me know the link when you start it so I can put it in my OP.




So  my question is  where do I do the the thread?

My guess would be right here  am I correct?

Let me know and I will alter the title of the thread and start it right here.

Made it public  as I would like  to allow altcoin mining community to chime in I also do not want to make waves.

I want to have a merit point give away  thread  designed for altcoin miners.

So  my question is  where do I do the the thread?

My guess would be right here  am I correct?

Let me know and I will alter the title of the thread and start it right here.

It would seem to be a personal decision between either the board we are in or this board https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=67.0. Either one would be appropriate in my opinion, as long as you are indeed going to be talking about Alt-coins, and especially mining if it were to stay in this section.

I doubt this would make waves, theymos was very interested in having merits being plentiful in every sub-community and sub-section; the altcoin users are no exception to this. You have my vote and you probably could start it right here in this thread as you've suggested.

I would not make it a simple giveaway, maybe have users submit posts or you can review their overall post history; answer some questions about altcoins or anything that is challenging or would discern meritorious from desperation.

This is interesting, feel free to check my post history, and ask me alt coin questions, you are an extremely well respected member of the alt coin mining community, and you have helped many of us, (myself included) to understand this new paradigm, good luck on this new endeavor!

Bump  looking for an answer  as to where to place this thread.

Fwiw, I feel like the altcoin mining community is somewhat distinct from the rest of the altcoin section (edit - so I would keep it in the altcoin mining sectoin). From what I see, many here don't necessarily care much about the specific coin they're mining, only that it gets them the best return (lately people talk more about $, but I think a lot of altcoin miners are doing it to trade them for btc - I fall in that camp).

In my case  I can fully control my power cost.  up to 13-15kwatts 24/7/365   Due to the solar array deal I have with forum member buysolar .

 So I am in gpu camp more then asic camp Simply due to long  warranties with good service.

which in turn  means more altcoin then  BTC.

I have a ratio of

coins to asic gear to gpus to cash to debt to power cap to heat cap to sales of gear

  that I juggle to earn profit.

I think this thread should be placed on off-topic as there has no perfect thread for this giveaway. However, I have seen one giveaway thread here on this board- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0

If threads like this are required, doesn’t that mean that the merit system is kinda broken?

I don’t mean that the merit system is bad, it’s good in the sense that it encourages useleful posts. But the merit sources seems to be a little too strict as to the criteria in which merits are given.

Your thoughts?

Your thoughts?

No. It does not mean that it is "kinda broken"; it means that it has just been implemented and everyone is figuring out the best way(s) to distribute merit to every section and sub-section of this forum without being too liberal or strict about it. There are 57 merit sources and millions of members; they will not get to you all. There are more sources being added constantly, and specifically in an attempt to target the sub-communities that don't get enough attention or merit.

How does a user giving out merit points in a thread to users that deserve it prove the merit system is broken?

Merit is meant to be hard to achieve, otherwise it would be meaningless.

The old system had flaws .

Post a few times a week and make rank.

Have multiple accounts create a few threads and in a year. Of posting to yourself and your alts you can have three or four good looking accounts.

In two years you would have hero accounts.

In three or four years you have legendary accounts .

You then can do some nice rip offs.  Yeah it would be long but if done correctly a lot could be stolen.

I escrow . I have a legendary account I have escrowed 50k in usd.


I think there is a fear of someone doing a long con with the old system.

All the senior guys now have a long delay to be a hero so maybe they will be stopped from scamming.

If 1 in 20 seniors are looking to reach hero to scam they will be slowed a lot.

While I agree with you, I also think default merit should be given in a better way...proportionally to days/posts maybe....
this way someone who just got Full member status and me, few days before reaching Senior member, got same starting merit points,
so I'm actually slowed down lot more

I do not think the default merit should have been given in a different way. I'm not saying it's perfect, but "days/posts" would not have been a better way of doing things. It is unfortunate for the people that were about to rank up and deserve to be ranked up, but I'm going to be honest with you; most of the people complaining about this exact scenario are people who do not deserve to be ranked up and may never rank up with the current system. This tells me that merit is working exactly as it is intended to.

If you truly are deserving of that rank, you should earn the merit in no time, plus what's the rush? Ranks do not mean much, and won't mean much until the merit system has a chance to settle in and the older high-ranking accounts that don't belong are weeded out.

My main point, slowing you down has done no harm to your forum experience, but it has improved the overall health of the forum by stopping spammers in their tracks (in terms of ranking up).

What you say doesn't make much sense, because you just told me that if my account was 10 days older, I would deserve to be Senior member, but because I didn't sign up 10 days earlier,
I deserve it to be postponed few years? Cheesy

Ranks mean a lot if you're into bounty campaigns

I never said that and I would highly recommend you stop lying. Please, where did I ever say that you deserved to be ranked up if you signed up 10-days earlier? You either have me confused with somebody else, you have no clue what I'm saying or you are blatantly lying.

If you cannot earn merit as intended, then you should be postponed indefinitely; you should never rank up if you are unable to earn merit.

You should be more into the health of the forum than you are about your own rank, but it appears you care more about your rank for signature campaigns then you care about the forum. This says a lot about you, so please stop purposefully twisting my words so that you can say something you believe to be witty and cute.


These represent 99% of your posts, they are not even a full sentence, they add nothing to the conversation, you regularly post in useless mega-threads. I see why you are upset, because you post nonsense all day.

Good list, but why you think Daneel doesn't have competition? What about one in my sig (Gimmer)?
Poor zombies
I concur
I think you have problem with math Smiley
What card?
Price just exploded

Starting to see a pattern? I could go all day with these type of posts from you. I haven't even edited these, this is your full post for each of these quotes.

Now tell me, do you think you deserve merit or a rank up for these posts? This is almost your entire post history, and I want to make it clear You should not rank up, at all, unless serious changes to your contributions and posting habits occur.

You even received merit for these two posts (which you should not have) :

...and I think we're bound to look for another signature campaign Smiley
$100 before end of February

Tell me again why you deserve to be ranked up. You shouldn't have even made it to Full Member.

Please stop lying, I never said I deserve it. I just said if purpose is to make it fair, it should
treat everyone equal, and current system doesn't do that. I don't see how purposefully
cherrypicking some of my posts to make me look bad contributes to the health of forum, either

Everyone is not equal.

Users in this community earn merit/respect/trust based on value they add to the community over time.

I'll be honest, I have no clue what "rank" I am. The users who know me know the value I add to the community.

EDIT: Just looked. I got a merit point! yay.

Oh good, then we both agree that you do not deserve to rank-up.
Then there is no problem.

I just said if purpose is to make it fair, it should
treat everyone equal, and current system doesn't do that. I don't see how purposefully
cherrypicking some of my posts to make me look bad contributes to the health of forum, either

The purpose is not to make it "fair" or treat everyone equally; equity is not the goal. The goal is to discourage people like yourself from posting nonsense (because the primary benefit has been nullified), as I have referenced. The purpose was exactly the opposite of treating everyone equal; it was meant to separate people like you from people that contribute to the community and reward the people that actually contribute. That was not cherry-picking, that is representative of your posting as a whole.

Pointing out your flaws, bad-habits and harmful activity in hopes that you improve yourself, see the error of your ways or just get discouraged enough to leave the forum entirely would certainly be good for the forum.

I am not going to continue muddying philip's thread, by going back and forth with someone that doesn't deserve it. If you'd like to continue this conversation, send me a PM; not contributing anymore to your worthless attempt to farm merit/activity.
