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.

You say punishment, but I would much rather my unspent merit decays to nothing than gets awarded to some shitposter.


Instead of ranting about the merit holders not awarding merits, why not strive harder to receive a well-deserved one?

Because that's difficult. Much easier just to create yet another topic bitching and moaning about merit and hope there someone who is as big an idiot as you are who will merit your bitching and moaning.

I agree that not much merit seems to be handed out now compared to when the system was first put in place, this thread notwithstanding, but punishing people for not giving out merit is insane.

This is a free forum, and asking for punishment is the stupidest idea I have seen here.

Instead of asking for punishment against them, why don't you ask for tips, advice on how you can improve your posts, or silently follow them, see how they post, their grammar and so on.

Your claim is false I have seen many people give merits to newbies, Jr Members BUT to deserving posts, no merit for cribbing, begging and spam posts.

If you yet feel you're not receiving any merits why don't you check a Bill gator thread he reviewes posts and there're many such ones who even reward you can't remember the name now.

This is the funniest thing i have read this day, let me laugh for a while, hahaha. Why would someone punished for doing nothing or not giving anything? It is hard to earn merits so people will make sure that they give smerits  to the right person. Some even have a high standard for choosing the "right person".

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.

I'm literally out of smerit, for I have given all of them to good posts, but regarding punishment, I think we must introduce a new rule in the forum, where the beggers as you can be banned.

Well I've still got merits to award, but half the people in threads I look at seem to be on ignore. I ignore antbody who quote large images posted earlier for example, as that makes it difficult to scan threads quickly. I'm reluctant to change my policy, as I've got a lot on at the moment, and I don't see the point in repeating the images anyway.

I'm considering running down the Fit to Talk site due to lack of interest.

Maybe you just need to spread the word some more - why don't you try a signature campaign to advertise it? Cheesy

Also, I live in fear of being added to your infamous ban list.

Edit: Not on the ignore list. Whew.

Would I dare?

I gave you a merit as well,  because I don't want to be punished ( unless she's hot, and in a leather skirt. ).

Well, it happens to me too. Do you remember my replied to you back there when i was saying i made a group for my local member to learn and talk english in the group. It is not too active anymore, only 2-4 person who talks in there. Maybe you are right, everything about this forum if that is not giving they money, it doesnt motivate them.

Money is always good to have. But i would have the same amount of posts without signature campaigns. I dont think too many (in percent) could say the same. Just look at telegram for icos, there are so much spam about bounty payout, airdrop etc. Im there for information about the project. So if it is any comfort bitcointalk is not alone in the suffering :p The same goes for all theese merit topics. Merit restricts how much money you make. I only get half because of it for example. But i dont want merit to be forced out of the holders, the whole point is to increase the quality of our forum. And even if money is nice, that is worth more.

They come to this Forum with Objective Motivation, yeah TOO OBJECTIVE i think.
Just Login, go to Bounty Boards. Find bounty with Big Pool then Join (maybe with their Alts), do the bounty brutally without know the rules.
And, the worst using Translator for Translate Campaign (silly)
They dont care if you scold or warn them, immuned.

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?
why do not you make a contest so that newcomers get merits for certain clamps? now it is very difficult for beginners to receive ranks

I've been pondering what a suitable punishment for OP should be, right now my preferred method would be an English lesson/physical torture combo. So Op is tied to a chair, myself and jetcash are in the room, whilst I slide matches under his fingernails Jet Cash holds a basic English test for OP to read, then Jet asks the questions, spelling, grammar mainly, every question OP gets wrong I get to light a match till it burns down and heats up his fongernails. We all know OP will get 10 wrong, so after that Pharmacist comes in and T-bags OP until he agrees to Ninja style help the forum and cuts all internet connections to the Countries with the shitposting account farms.

Why would they care if newbies or jr.members don't receive smerits because all they do is rant and post shits like you? Merits are made to be given to posts that have quality and to be able to distinguish quality posts you must set your own standards towards it. Every member here have their own standards on giving merit to somebody and you cannot blame them if their standards are high. Even I don't have much smerits to give but I am also careful in giving merit because majority of posts that I am seeing are not sufficient for me to give merit more likely they are just spam posts.

Well, you are tending to be a bit off-topic, and in the off topic section, you should mark your punishment topic with the [NSFW] just to be on the safe side Smiley
But to be a bit on topic as well:
I've started to comment on this forum to improve my English (and to learn about the blockchain system), and this helped a lot (I know I can still improve on both sides). I was not forced by anyone, but myself that time.
Now the merit system forces something similar for all of the users, to be able to rank up, they need to post valuable thoughts and to use proper English.

Something different:
I've got an interesting idea:
Is it possible that somebody (or a group), e.g. account farmers, are now trying to punish the forum, registering a lot of newbie accounts daily and spamming the hell out of the topics, in order to make it extra hard for the normal people to find something useful? Or this is only conspiracy?

I think it's just simple greed. You can run several bounty hunter accounts for the sig revenue, and you can talk about it on Steemit, YouTube and other sites that reward posters, and then you can get even more money.

Man, everything is possible, just do a kind of research, try to be useful for other forum members, even a Newbie could spread a wisdom. Stop complaining and just enjoy the atmosphere.
