This is an april fools joke.

While merit improved things a lot, clearly more adjustments were necessary. Therefore, some new rank requirements have been added in addition to the old requirements.

The new rank components are:

Activity & Merit
As before.

Politeness
How polite you have been in your posts, using language such as "please" and "sir". Politeness is after all the cornerstone of any good community.

fMerit
An obvious extension on top of Merit, sMerit, and source merit. It is calculated using this simple formula:
Code:
min((1103515245*(uid+activity)+12345) % (1<<10),(1103515245*posts+12345) % (1<<10), (1103515245*merit+12345) % (1<<10))

Imagination
Bitcoin would not even exist without Satoshi's impressive imagination, so I've decided to take this into account on the forum. Imaginative people are those who have posted many images.

Virtue
This is an upright, God-fearing community which will suffer no witchcraft or other heresy. This stat measures your moral virtue. Warning: those with low virtue may be visited by the holy inquisition.

Coins
How many different coins you have invested in. A good Bitcointalker will maintain a reasonable balance between conservative (100% yearly return) and aggressive (7% weekly return) tokens/coins.

Karma
This is how many non-scammer trust ratings you have both sent and received. Due to our strict moderation of the trust system, this is sure to be a highly reliable measure of your reliability vis-à-vis the trust system.

Previously a lot of people were posting questions about the ranking system, so I decided to simplify it. Just put the highest-order 10 bits of each number into a grid in this configuration:

Then run Conway's Game of Life on the cells. If the cells never stop moving even after infinite steps, then you advance to the next rank.

For example, consider someone with these stats:
Quote
Merit: 40
Activity: 56
Politeness: 36
fMerit: 56
Imagination: 36
Virtue: 40
Coins: 56
Karma: 40
This gives you a grid like:



This never ends, so the person will advance in rank.

Rank adjustments happen every week on Tuesday, and you can only go up 1 rank per week.

Hopefully this easy-to-understand, graphical ranking system will put to rest many users' questions and concerns once and for all.

i think this new profiling system is too complicated and no one will understand it.

how is virtue calculated? for example or do i have to write

Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
Sir please Sir please
to get better politeness rating?

oh boy....

Thank you for implementing my suggestion. I hope Bitcointalk will continue to develop according to fresh, agile, innovative ideas from new users who don’t carry the hindering baggage of experience.

 Shocked

I am very confused. Honestly, was it "tongue-in-cheek" when you say "simplified"? Or am I just maybe missing some necessary classes from University, because this makes my brain hurt.... no offense please.


Edit: ok after re-reading the "virtue" perimeters, I am pretty confident this is completely legit


Well played Theymos....well played.


Edit 2: Pirateat40 has more virtue than theymos  Shocked

Theymos sure is one of the most creative forum admins.  Grin

Nice one. I hope this will stay around forever. It sure is an impartial way to work out a ranking system. But what happens if I post 100 images and 100x times the words thanks and sir in the background color of a post?

I was just surprised with such large update. Too many thing at once.
It's like the Chinese government taking over the forum with social credit system.
Though it would take some more study to get into a conclusion, but I believe any automation in calculating any of the stat would result in spam.

This is not a joke or something. If you can read Mr. , you will know that this is a new Rank Requirements.
At first, I'm sure that people will really get confused by how this works, but if we try to understand what is the purpose and the goal of this new requirement. Just like Merit, time will pass and we will be able to understand it.

Hoping that this is not an April Fool's joke, can someone answer me the following questions:

1. There is a formula for calculating fMerit. But how is Politeness, Virtue, Coins.etc calculated? Are there specific formulas?
2. What is the difference between sMerit and fMerit?

Not sure if this will have a good effect on us or not

Will wait till the next few days  Undecided

Also curious about how the forum will know what coins did we invest

Theymos Again!!!

Now another thread topic lines begin. Meta will be cloacked with this.

In all this, I think this new system will become spamming as many pictures and sirs will come up to cloack the forums. Sir Theymos, I hope it isn't April Fools Day because it isn't yet April 1 in my country.
