2. Even if a spammer or a account farmer up voted a post other people can down vote it. So total votes will be based on majority. Spamming will be harder.

How much does it cost to make an account?  Nothing
What kind of email validation do we use?  Nothing

The majority will be the account farmers and spammers.   The legitimate users like myself would be drowned out.

People would use their army of accounts to down vote their competition.  :/

That is exactly what my point was by this:

1.Replacing the merit system with "Up vote & Down vote" or "Positive & Negative karma" system like in Reddit and Steemit will be the most wise decision.
2.Every member(or higher than jr.member) should be allowed to up vote or down vote a post or a reply.

Yeah! So that people with hundreds of accounts start spamming the threads with up & down votes as there are not limits on creating accounts on the forum and there should be no restrictions for anyone as per your solution. I think there can be no better way of spoiling the forum than this.

Why do I feel like this is reference pointing at a certain someone  Roll Eyes



Seriously the point of merits was adding a variable the shitposters don't have a control over. If all you need is an account then what stops people from alting? What stops them from making 100s of accounts (heck most of the shitposters have a ton of accounts already)?

No. I don't agree with your suggestions.

I believe the merit system is in play, and it's hot af.

While it's true that most scammers and balh blah were ported over from the old bitcointalk system, that's fine. At least the merit system and new activity system cuts off the influx of NEW scammers and NEW scammer accounts.

The old scammer accounts will be weeded out eventually, and it's already happening. Slowly, they'll gain negative trust and get banned too. When that happens, old scammer accounts will slowly die out. And there won't be new scammer accounts to replace them.

It is about time we differentiate forum in a social media.

Buddy there's a merit sources everywhere if a newbie or lower account post a constructive opinion about something a merit sources would have a chance to give an smerits, it is just not very dominant to notice for the reason that only a few selected member is a merit sources let's just wait to see an announcement of official all member of merit source.

this is the unofficial thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2823944.msg28929005#msg28929005

Once they have one of the account at higher rank level with huge amount of sMerit they quickly have exclusive vantage point to do whatever they want. moving around Merit between their account.

Yet another Merit fix thread from a butt hurt ding bat. Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Your rank does not exclude you from meaningful participation on this forum.

When the subject of buying BTC with Paypal comes up, I often remember this: 

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Some sort of AI like Google uses should be in order. To remove it outside the influence of human hands. AI that recognizes good content otherwise the only way to get merit will be to buy it somehow.
