I think so. Because I had seen that many friends are exchanging their merit. Like one has some merit. Another friend ask that friend whos has merit to goive him some. So without judging the post quality that friend is giving the merit where as the other person with good post quality doesn't getting the merit. Not only this there are also many people who are selling merit.I heard that they demand 100 merit for 0.1 btc to 1 btc.
So to me I think merit system is manipulated.

Why don't you report such profiles. And that prices you are quoting for merits sounds ridiculous as well ? If you notice such sales happening outside this forum, even then it should be reported to the moderators. This is the least we can do to get those merit system abusers punished. One thing that I do not like about all this is that though the members who are involved in these practices do get punishes when they are reported, the merit they spend are wasted. We already have shortage of merits keeping in mind huge number of members competing for them.

Please smack yourself in the face for the title of this thread..


Is merit system can be manipulated?


you should walk up to your mother and punch her in the face for breading someone who writes like that

dude .. harsh



anyway, It should be an alts by some high ranks member and his post is so good that it earns a lot of merits.

Rofl.  Dude, we should be helping him...  English obv isn't his first language.

As i am reading comments in the forum, i saw an account with 3 activities and a 100+ merits. Im I'm curious how he/she get got that. I dont know if he/she had a backer was cheating or what. Is merit can be manipulated? Can the merit system be manipulated? Im I'm not saying that he/she manipulated it but i dont know just my instinct but my insticts says yes.

Sorry man.  I give you an F even with all the effort done in this post.  Your grammar def needs work and you need to know how to use punctuations.  Grin

Harsh? Rude? not needed?

I will tell you what isn't needed and that is all these shitposts and shit threads on an English Language forum from People who are only here to earn a few Satoshi's..

If the merit system is so confusing then re read the fucking threads there are hundreds of them about Merit, if you cannot communicate in English go to school, read books - watch films.. the sad thing about all of this is that no one seems to help themselves here.

and if you don't understand the history of HODL after reading the thread then why the fuck are you still here? its like the Pajeet who was moaning about Lazlo getting a shit ton of merits for the Pizzsa thread, it is ridiculous that these people want to take funds from Signature campaigns, airdrops, bounties and whatever other earning avenues there are but they refuse to actually look into the history of Bitcoin.


You know I was being sarcastic right...?  Grin

Look at the jerick guy's post history.  He then proceeds on opening this thread:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3074235.0

ROFL.  If the mods were really serious about finding alts, I think those threads being started by a 'random noob' and being bumped by those 'other noobs' are good places to start.

Absolutely not, and the word " manipulated " cannot be true in the field of the merit system, but there are few traders of merit points (especially, some users who have an alternative account) who have been punished (through negative trust).
In addition to that, thanks to merit system, It has become easier to overthrow the scammers and to report them.

To cause considerable manipulation of merit system, a merit source needs to be involved in this. Since the admin is picking these merit sources, I am sure he is doing all the research about the chosen member. The post of merit source comes with  a lot of responsibility. Also, I think that manipulation on large scale (awarding merit points in bulk) is very easy to notice. Since only established members are being chosen as merit sources, I do not think they will risk their account by getting into merit abuse (buying and selling of merit points) .

I do not think that manipulation will be the right word to use for this but little abuse of the merit system is going on for sure. This is evident from threads like :

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2896910.0

These threads are filled with posts from other members showing how other members are trying to cheat the system. These cheaters are sending merits in bulk to the alt accounts to rank them up. This is additional problem for genuine users as it makes merit more scarce. Also it is very discouraging for members to see these abusers getting away this shameless act.

yes, but it is just our instinct. we can't judge anyone from a opinion. If you find again that please report here and also check where he got the merit points.

This is not true. I'm not a merit source, but I have awarded well over 100 merit points.

If Bitcoin didn't exist, bankers would have to invent it.

Every system has its loopholes, especially when its newly established. What people have to understand is that despite the shortcomings of the said system, it shouldn't be used as a way to get through it or to cheat it. Most members here would easily think that they would get away with what they did but the truth is that, one way or another, you will get caught and you will have to face the consequences of your actions. Each and every one of us have a choice to manipulate the system to easily get merits, but if you're a responsible and honest member, it will never cross your mind to do such act. Honesty is and will always be the best policy.

Nice to see someone concerned about the forum , most are just worried that how will they rank up now. Regarding the merit system being manipulated, some people are doing it. I know that there are always some people who like to take the easier route even if it breaks the rules. Senior  members are giving negative trust to the members involved in such practices and we also have "merit police" reporting such cases in threads like " https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2896910.0 " . Nice to see all good people making combined effort to make the new merit system successful.
