Just thinking; isn't it high time a moderator lock this thread?We should seriously stop posting on this thread. We have past the middle of the month and looking at the day the topic was created, it was an 'April fool joke' and it happens only on the first day of April. it has served it's purpose. Some of us are asking what's fmerits  Huh Jeez, this whole thing was a joke at least look at the topic.
I guess writing this makes me part of those draining the thread too Lips sealed

Could be a test of Reading comprehension?  As we can see, the title of the thread has been changed, including the descriptive phrase, "April fools", and also the first line of the OP says:  "This is an april fools joke."   

Reminds me of a little recent personal situation that sometimes we can run into issues, when we skim, and we do not read carefully.  Recently someone contacted me by text for the purpose to buy bitcoins, and I misread the text and I considered it as a kind of scammer because of how I misread the parameters, so I provided a bit of a quip response that was meant to shut down the discussion.  Then the person sent me another text saying "but I am cute" which caused me to respond again but then I noticed my earlier mistake...

Anyhow, the conversation ended up going on a bit longer than I wanted, in part due to my mistaken read, and the person still ended up being a likely scammer, but for reasons that were different than I had originally mistakenly considered.  My point is that there can be some value in attempting to practice reading comprehensive, and the OP and title of any thread are decent starting points for forum participation.

Reminds me of a little recent personal situation that sometimes we can run into issues, when we skim, and we do not read carefully. 
I'm thinking the same thing--people here don't read anything, but it's not just a matter of skimming and not reading thoroughly (which I'm guilty of ever since I got a smartphone).  People don't read on bitcointalk, because they're not paid to do so and most of them don't have a genuine interest in bitcoin anyway.

This guy's attention was obviously piqued by the mention of merit, which I'm sure he's well aware of, as it's the only thing standing in his way of ranking up and thereby earning more from whatever bounty he's going to participate in.  I would bet money on the fact that he wouldn't normally care about what's posted in Meta, which is a section that was usually devoid of spammers before merits were introduced.

This is a joke thread but the moderator accumulated tons of merits. I wonder the ones that gave away
merits were aware this is was a joke. If not this post is a kind of scam i reckon.
If they were aware then everyone is happy, well done job.

A scam?
Grow up, it was a joke & even if people weren’t aware, who cares? Too many people on here falling over themselves, absolutely desperare for Merit. It’s only a forum, if this place is so important to people & their earning potential in life then they might as well give up on life.

Seriously, be realistic. Someone with a decent sense of humour should understand that it was a pure joke. I see everyone is happy except you  Cheesy

I have seen a lot of cases like this. For them, this forum is an earning place.

I could not stand the lies against me anymore. I can not prove them wrong too. It's better I live in peace.
So, I am willingly locking mdayonliner. Thank you BitcoinTalk. Be addictive, be a Bitcoiner.

I hope this merit te is a joke Tongue, because it is very difficult to jump the rank.

in fact the polite & smerit could have been nice,

Who is sending merit to who?

no one Sad

Yeah I find it difficult too, will probably be years before I rank up again haha. Oh well, made it this far at least.

There are very few local merit resources..  I got a total of 9 merits. I did the calculation,  over the next 5 years, my rank will be changed  Grin

Oh wow, this was an April fools joke. Completely unexpected, since it involved modifying the code for the whole forum.  Cheesy

I'm glad it was an April fools, because it was just too complicated.

Glad that you realized this was a joke in 16 days. It must be fun playing April Jokes on you then.

It's that I don't come here often, especially meta, so I was not aware at the time that this was all an April fools. Technically if I was smarter I would have been able to think that the new new merit system just did not make any sense.

Good for you... you become Legendary before merit system was implemented. If it was implemented on or before September 19, 2014, when you were still a newbie I can't imagine what you feel and your sentiment would be.

I think it's the main reason why people coming to this site is to look for extra income like me, and you maybe because of your signature.

You seem to be getting distracted, ruthbabe, and trying to find biased from already ranked up members, when  it is not centrally relevant to the current situation because higher ranking members did not create the new merit system even though they retain their grandfathered rank.

I think that if LFC_Bitcoin is correct that if your primary reason to come to the forum is for income, then likely your motivations are ones that are being fought against with the implementation of this new merit system.

If you feel that ranking up is important to why you are here, then you are correct that it is going to be much more difficult to rank up under the new system as compared to the old system.... And there are strategies that you can likely develop, especially if you value ranking up. 

Since this is an April fools thread, we are likely getting somewhat off topic to talk about ranking up strategizing ways to possibly earn merits, even though the April fools joke was exaggerating those kinds of concepts and possibly playing on the dynamics of the merit system change, which has more negative emotional sentiments for some members as compared with other members.. and already having had established some rank does establish some differing ranking up dynamics that may be difficult for already ranked up members to relate or even to care about the plight of some of the members trying to rank up, especially if the members trying to rank up seem to be excessively whining about it or even blaming older (higher ranked) members.

Indeed son, you are now sharing it with other members...
The merit system is very difficult. You have to do a lot to get Merit. But sometimes you can not get the money back
I've read a lot of shitposts in my time, and this has got to be one of the most idiotic I've come across.

ugur2222 is trying to win the "most idiotic" championship in shitPMs too, not just shitposts:



Stop spamming and spend time in reading rather than shit-posting.

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.

Wow such April fool prank generated such a huge merit. I am so shocked with those merit dude. I will play such prank next April to see if I will generate such merit cos I really need some merit.  Grin. Maybe you could go through my post and see if I merited some. I really need some merit  Wink

It's nice joke but better not be a joke not because of the rank but because it's quite flirting to see my own score. Cheesy
