There are higher ranks hold smerits and does not care about givimg merits especially to newbies and jr.member could we punish them so that it will be given? Literally they have high standards in giving merits or else they were just lazy in giving merits. How i wish those smerits if not given im a period of time will be deducted on their merits.

Literally they have high standards in giving merits
Yes, I have high standards for who I give out merit to, and why shouldn't I?  Why should I reward assholes like you who babble and whine, and can't even do so coherently?  And I would hope others do likewise.  That's precisely the reason the merit system exists in the first place.

There's nothing you can do about it except go into an impotent rage-a-thon like this or cry yourself to sleep at night over it.  You decide.

It is possible that the higher ranked people are not encountering sufficient meritable posts. Some of them will have high standards, but that is life. You just have to improve your posting quality to meet those standards.

In any case, Theymos has said that he might consider decaying unused smerit.

There is currently no decay, but if hoarding seems to become a problem, I might add it.

No, I am a selfish guy. I do not want to give merit to the likes of you. And yes, punish me please. I like it hard.

But you know, if you just posted a useful thread, I would have given you a merit. I mean, there is no point in keeping merit points to yourself as there are many qualified people out there. However, most of people on this forum are shitposters. I hardly can find a really great post. And hey, keep up the good work. I like your thread. Please, punish me.

This guys seems like he's really spamming the Meta section and its really annoying. Looks like this guy's account is a farmed account and recently made to intentionally spam Meta section. Because if it is not a farmed account, he will not even attempt to post here in Meta section in the first place containing and titled about information that a Real Newbie will never ask.

It is obviously that he's just making this threads to increase his post count which is a wrong move.

No. Why should people be forced to give them out if they don't want to? This seems to me like how certain countries 'force' people by law to vote. All it will do is make people give them to posts that likely don't deserve it just to avoid 'punishment'. Also, what punishments are you suggesting exactly and what if users just become active for x amount of time? People should be free to do what they wan't with their merit, but if theymos wants to make it decay after x amount of time I wouldn't be against that but don't think it's necessary.

You are so imposed on milking out the sMerits of people that you made two threads regarding the same concern:
This thread and this one (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3220858.0) Roll Eyes

Theymos made it clear that sMerits unused will be decaying after sometime. This will solve the probable issue that "some high ranked member might try to rank up their alt-account" - however that does not mean members are going to distribute sMerits at random to  newbie shitposters who dont read the rules and spam threads like nutjobs and dipshits.

Its easy to blame the system for the problems that you face, while the only problem in the system is you.

It's a lot of work hunting round to find posts to reward. Many of us have quite busy lives, and we visit the forum for relaxation and the exchange of information and help. There are so many necro-bumps, repeated posts and rehashed quotes, that it is quite difficult to find meritable posts. One often ends up putting more people on ignore, than members to reward. When one does find a thread that has potential, it is usually filled with repeated quotes of the same long post . If you guys want to receive merits, then stop clogging the threads with rubbish, so that we can see the posts that are worth rewarding.

Punishing sMerit holders is one of the stupidest suggestions. All they will do is to give the lot to Satoshi, or some other historic figure, and then when they do happen to spot a post that they like, they won't have any merit to award.

Personally I believe you should be punished for making this thread, either a forum ban or you should be raped by a goat. See just as reasonable as this stupid thread

The forum is place for generous, kind-hearted members; not for spammers, merit beggars, merit farmers, and account farmers.
Merit system is powerful supplemental tool to help us build such a forum for all of us.

Because of people like you, I wish I had a 'destroy sMerit' option. You and people like you do not deserve to be here, let alone get any of my (or other peoples') points.

I am new to this bitcointalk and my friend told me to study about this thing, and after reading some informative details, ive came across about giving merits. Well merits are given to those users who are actively helping the community, not asking for merits or trying to be merited, thats what i understand in this thing.

One thing is merits are given freely to those who are deserving to be merited.

I have really little time to do some posting on this forum, so I'm trying to use my time to create useful posts, and meanwhile, sometimes if I find a post that deserves a merit, I give merit. If I don't have time to search for posts, to spend my sMerits, I can't give out those sMerits, because I won't give out merits randomly, especially for newbies...
So if you think I deserve a punishment, give it to me baby Smiley
What kind of punishment do you think will be really efficient for these kind of people, who don't have time?
E.g. sMerits, which has not been given out for more than 2 months, will be deleted? Fine for me, but is this fine for you? If my sMerits will decrease, I will think twice before I will spend the remaining precious ones, so there's even smaller chance that I'll give it to a newbie like you. Think it over again...

I'm one of the guys with Smerits to award. Please note the use of the word 'award' and not the word 'give'. I take the fact that the community has given me merits to award seriously, and I don't think they should be sprayed around for newbie spammers to earn more money from their activities which are damaging Bitcoin Talk. 

Instead of saying 'lets punish people who don't award sMerits' lets turn it around and say 'lets punish the people who make it hard for responsible members to award merits'.

There is already a punishment laid out by the admins for merit hodlers. Its been stated that after a while, all unused  merit will be decayed into the system. So I think, that there wont be any point assigning another punishment to them. Lets just wait and see how the admins handles it.

I have over 200 sMerits available, and rarely do I award merit to posts. Most of the time I encounter good and informative post only to find out that it's a rehash of an article or just a copy-pasted one. Anyways though, AFAIK sMerits that aren't awarded for some time would just be gone, and I'm cool with that, and I think it's already a 'punishment' of some form. Instead of ranting about the merit holders not awarding merits, why not strive harder to receive a well-deserved one?
