Shameless plug I know, but 777 sMerit?  Wow!

Only if he wants to cheat the system.

Interesting how your mind comes to that...

Is he really hoarding it? I don't think so or maybe got no time for giving that much of sMerit to those who deserve it, after all he's still a forum member(admin) that's capable of receiving merits and we can't do anything about it  Embarrassed.

Theymos isn't the only one guilty of this.

The truth is that the sMerit rain has ceased. The initial excitement around it has died down. Now, most forum memebers don't remember it even exists or to give it any more.

I agree.  I have to struggle to spend more merit than I take in.   It's not that there is no worthy content, it's just I am busy, and being fair in rewarding merit takes time and resources.  :/

I am going to have to increase my merit amount per submission.  Inflation I guess.  Smiley

This is not a problem with the merit system, this is a problem with the quality of the content and the sockpuppets. For reference: I have around 300 sMerit right now and nobody to give them to, nor do I plan to look through garbage to find someone. I'm still waiting for a destroy merit option.

I understand smerits is a reward to evaluate the contribution to the forum, but I really can not imagine where someone smerits to store and can use it as well. For example, I have two smerits, which one is in my wallet? How can I use it? Have you participated in a senior forum that can help me explain this?
thank you

I couldn't agree more.. Like me, I don't think of it much not like when it was first implemented. To be merited or not is not my priority now in thia forum. I may not rank higher than where I am now but atleast there are still bounties that need my focus more than brooding and brooding about how to get merits. It's here, live with it. Focus more on what's necessary...

I've read a number of Merit sources saying they can't find enough good posts to Merit. I think a combination of the existing Merit sources giving more Merit per post and increasing the number of Merit sources with less to give out each would be a good approach to take.

I have not worried myself much on getting merit or not but I have been on the view that merit shouldn't really come when you have made a screen filled post that will gulp one hour of reader's time to read and assimiliate or a post filled with copied links. I have believed in sensible and reasonable post.

However, I also submit that Theymos and the likes might not have given out more merits than they have got because they are actually busy but some very high ranking and known members can't give because they are more like waiting for a post made by nullious and the likes as if every member is equally gifted.

I was not surprised to see that I got a merit from a legendary member, I only knew the post has been read.

Maybe theymos were reserved their smerits for some purposes, because I believe that time will comes smerits will be eliminate.

In my opinion time will comes and smerit will be vanish! I'm sure that in the near future, limited accounts were rank ups and most of that accounts are in the lower ranks. Imagine 2:1 merits/smerits so there's a possibility that those accounts who cannot reach the legendary will stock on their current positions. Because as per computation:

For example:
1,000 Legendary accounts with 1,000 smerits each
Total smerits of 1,000,000 if they distributed it into other accounts it will turns to 500,000 almost half of smerits will vanish and if it is continue distributed that will be happen:
 1,000,000
 500,000
 250,000
 125,000
 62,500
 31,250
 15,625 until reach the "0"

So there's a possibility that the newcomer are not to ranking up or they cannot meets their target smerits to rank up.
I have a question if time comes that smerit turns into "0" did smerit refill to sustain the merit/smerit system?

Hmm, I tested my account but the calculations are not correct,
http://dev.martinlawrence.ca/bpip/profile.aspx?p=iasenko

It says that I have at least 36 smerit but I actually have only 21.

I'll upload a screenshot for proof when I get to my PC Smiley

It looks like your numbers might be a bit out of date.

You need to read about the differences between merits, SMerits and source merits.

He can give those smerits to anybody that gets His interest, but sure he'll be picky, and giving His smerits is not that an easy task, He is the administrator so He must choose the best of the best. However,  the distribution of smerits are getting lesser from time to time, it's not just only admin theymos that Hoards smerits.

Theymos was the main proponent of the merit system. I think having such numbers of sMerit doesnt mean he was hoarding. Theymos was also sa main merit source. Just think before you post.

source merits are awarded before sMerits, so just because a merit source has sMerit to  spend, it doesn't mean that he isn't awarding source merits. To get the full picture, you need to read about the merit system, and to look at the number of merits being awarded.

Very few people seem to understand the merit system, maybe I should add an explanation on fit to talk, or maybe I'll create an audio file about it.

Worthy contents it is. IMO Only few people is really reading threads and post per post, I will not deny that even me is guilty of that doing. Nowadays I only read threads that was discussed by high ranking forum members because most of it have interesting topics and these threads that they made are already have merits so I'm doubting to give them sMerit anymore as I know that they don't need it anymore(am I selfish by this or not using sMerit in a proper way?)
