the most UNUSUAL thing happened here

Quote
so many members said it's normal,  it's nothing unusual,  it's not strange, and try to cover the truth about the system bug or merit trading !!!

join date is 2014, so the member should be full member before Huh?
people deleted thousand posts to downgrade to newbie?Huh

WHAT A JOKE !!!


Yeah.. very unsual.. deleted post and rank down?. I think there's no need to delete previous post even if shity post though you can post new ones. And take a look to the 10 post, no earned merit at all...Whats going on?. Shity post where merited then deleted?.

I actually think his posts got deleted with the recent post recount made by theymos when he deleted thousands of posts and threads and a lot of people were complaining about having less posts or as you said he deleted them himself but it wouldn't really make much sense.

Well I was not aware of this, so I guess maybe this is case here, because I see posts back from 2014 so maybe you are right. I've seen before newbies with 100 merit, deleting the history to remove any evidence of possible trading. Of course when you see an account registered back then with no activity and full merit then it is suspicious.

It's easy to spot a purchased account. If you look at the post history and you see perfect English and quite some knowledge and then a pause for 1 -2 years and suddenly, the guy started posting only in the Russian local section for example, asking how to find his profile link or just a newbie questions, you know, then it is obvious that this account doesn't belong the the original owner anymore.

Here is the original quote from theymos that mentions him doing this recently :

I did a recount of post counts earlier today. There are several bugs which cause the post count to drift from its real value over time. The current count is the accurate one.

I've seen some really severe cases where the post count drifts by hundreds. Since it is an old account it is possible that it has drifted to quite a large degree. I imagine theymos should've done a post recount right before implementing the merit system to avoid this sort of thing, or maybe they did and something else has occcured. Either way, I'm not sure we can tell one way or another for sure what happened to this account unless people are able to find archives of their old posts and what not.

Let me be more clear, I wrote my comment while I was waiting someone to pick me up, coz I forgot my keys, then he came and had no time for detailed explanation.

So, the account was a full member with all the activity and had the default amount of merit (100) for his rank.
Then the owner decide to delete all his posts and start all over. When your posts are deleted, you are loosing the activity generated by them.

The merit on the other hand, is something you cannot lose. So the default amount of 100 will remain even without any activity. There is no merit history, because he got the default merit back on 25 of January, when the system was introduced and he was a Full Member that time.

I hope now it's more clear Smiley
Thanks for your explanation, even if it is very unusual that someone deleted almost all his postings and voluntarily falls back on the rank Newbie. But is possible...i never stop learning!

I bet he only deleted hundreds of posts not thousands, Hero to Legendary members usually have that huge number of posts unless that GiGa# is addicted here in the forum.

Anyway, what he have done is not our business anymore though for me deleting all the previous posts makes no sense at all. Let's just respect whatever his reason behind this.

That certain bug affects only the displayed post count, not the activity which is the only basis of ranks before merit.
It can't be tied to the said reply by Theymos.

Why don't we ask GiGa# himself (he's still active according to his profile): Personal Message GiGa#.

On my side I think on his first post someone have already given him a hundred merit but since his post is deleted because maybe it on the wrong page, maybe he buy his merit, but this only about speculation, since history had been deleted so no one really know what happen.

No. His merit history is empty. No one has ever given that user any merits. Get your facts right.

Many of the posts were deleted:

Pretty weird; it probably can't be sold for much since all his potential activities are gone.
