A lot of users now are laughing not because it is an april fools prank but the burdens were not true. I shocked also when I noticed that the new rank system are suddenly gone to the thread I am reading.
A while ago, I am thinking on what are the combination numbers to rank up. I thought also that there are algorithms used in order to calculate the new rank requirements till I came to the point that I will not rank up anymore. But then, I am very thankful that it is just a prank. A discouraging ranking system turns to a joke! Those who complained, you may now celebrate!
P.S. It might be prank as of now, but it may come true in the near future.
Many users were commenting yesterday and though claiming it to be a joke but I was seeing a fear behind their statements.  A new tough measure to pass for higher ranking.  Haa haa but many were showing them to be normal but in reality they were not.
I was happy with new system and took it seriously.  I was seeing it as opportunity to rank up.  But  Grin  such a big joke.

But then, I am very thankful that it is just a prank. A discouraging ranking system turns to a joke! Those who complained, you may now celebrate!
P.S. It might be prank as of now, but it may come true in the near future.
Many users were commenting yesterday and though claiming it to be a joke but I was seeing a fear behind their statements.  A new tough measure to pass for higher ranking.  Haa haa but many were showing them to be normal but in reality they were not.
I was happy with new system and took it seriously.  I was seeing it as opportunity to rank up.  But  Grin  such a big joke.

I hereby propose the addition of a new Humour score.  Unlike activity and merit points, humour points can be lost for humourlessness, literal-mindedness, broken sarcasm detectors, inability to grasp satire, or employment at a humourless alphabet-soup agency.

Humour will not affect rank.  However, those with zero or negative humour scores shall have their signatures displayed upside-down and backwards.  Also, such persons should carry a warning beneath their usernames:  “Jest with extreme caution.”

This is a serious idea.  @theymos, please implement it!

I was surprised (and laughing) at how many people took this seriously. I thought that this was way more obvious than last year, but I guess not.

A paid sarcasm shill once warned me about this sort of thing.



P.S., Dr. Cerimon shall must needs advise on how best to program the forum software to distinguish between good and ill humours.

Alia should be given to the winner.

- Virtue was the edit distance between your name and "Lauda". Wink
In other words, you believe that Lauda has no morals. Interesting...

You have no edit distance with Lauda. what would you do if you find the real Lauda to be a girl around 20-25 years old in a room alone with you? would you jump her before killing her or after?
If theymos could have disabled Lauda's trust ratings for April fools day, we could have you for a fool for real. interesting...

i was wondering how this formula was created
how many night and day of thinking until this formula found
min((1103515245*(uid+activity)+12345) % (1<<10),(1103515245*posts+12345) % (1<<10), (1103515245*merit+12345) % (1<<10))
its more complicated than einstein's formula e=mc2
surely the one who invited this is much more genius than einstein's

Yesterday not less than 172 sMerit was received by the forum administrator TheyMos for the newly introduced system which later turn out to be April Fools. Can one conclude that sMerit sent was a waits?

They were acknowledging that it was a really good joke and a lot of effort went into making it. So not wasted in my opinion.

Tell me what do you know about general relativity? facking lol, did you just compared 1103515245*posts+12345 with E=mc2? don't talk about something you don't know anything about. doing that would make you a fool.

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.
Fucking hell man, I actually thought it was real

Oh yes it is, I even give the admin a Merit Point to show my appreciation to what he have done Smiley although I know it's a big foolishness Smiley
Now you will see here that many members are still active to give their sMERITS but only for those who truly deserves it Smiley

I love this forum.

Lol... The fmerit too got me because I had a reasonable number of it (below 100 though). And, I was thinking could that be a mechanism to reduce my little merit I had already  Grin. I was more confused with the fmerit and was waiting to follow any thread on it... Smiles. Theymos got me there. What a joke....

I can't believe it took a while for some people to find out that it was all a joke. Some of them opened threads complaining and asking "Why theymos? WHY?". Hahaha.

It would be funny if some people started spamming pictures to increase their "imagination". Hahaha.

I would never touch someone described in any way like Lauda.

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....
easy-peasy sir. I guess what sir dev/mod wants us to understand that politeness is respecting. It only means we should show some respect towards each other. Being impolite only shows rudeness and disrespect. It reflects who we really are.

Yesterday not less than 172 sMerit was received by the forum administrator TheyMos for the newly introduced system which later turn out to be April Fools. Can one conclude that sMerit sent was a waits?

I would imagine a large percentage (90% or more) of those dishing out merits for this subject matter either understood that it was an April fools joke or that they were taking the subject matter with a LARGE grain of salt (in the event that they were uncertain about the joke status).

Giving out smerits remains in the eyes of the beholder, so I doubt that we should consider such discretionary choices to send smerits to be wasted.

Just from the nature of this particular joke, it seems quite plausible that Theymos has been giving considerable thought to how the merit system is playing out, yet I could not imagine tweaking the merit system too early in regards to whether too much waste is occurring due to the fact that some members receive a lot of merits, but they might not be in the practice of sending out the generated smerits (that smerits generate at .5 from the receipt of merits).  It could take 6 months or more to figure out if there should be some kind of incentive to spend smerits (or punishment for not spending smerits).

Wait a minute, did I missed something here? It seems like the new ranking points blablah disappeared.
Oh let me guess, so it's really is a April 1st's Prank isn't?  Huh
All this time, I'm trying to understand how the equation works but all of it was just a joke Cheesy
I've been defending my side to prove that it is not a joke but, looks like I'm the funny and fooled one.

Nice one Sir theymos  Cheesy I admit, I've been fooled. But I do like the idea of that new ranking requirements.
Oh men, I'm going to miss my Politeness points  Cry

Seriously, is it really a joke?


Actually it's my first April 1st to be with you guys, in the Forum as well. And I never thought that Sir theymos, which is the Admin and the most scary and strict person I know in the Froum, can do such a thing just to make us happy Smiley
Thanks for that entertaining prank Sir theymos (I really hope that it was just a prank now because if it is not, what I'm saying now will be a shame to myself). I'm pretty sure that you fooled everybody.

Those who made threads about this new ranking requirements are 100% fooled, I assured. Haha


Edit. I've noticed the title and it is really a joke.
By the way, it seems like this thread was not only made to fool people. Looks like Sir theymos won this battle. Because of this big update, Newbies and other Members has stopped posting about Merits any more.
