Just stay away from those "sellers".
A lot of people is already tagged as Merit seller or trader, that's not fun.

Why did you start the thread, bro.?
honestly, no need to post your thread because your ideas were mentioned in previous thread, which is just above yours.
Please stop making non-sense thread like this, which is likely off-context because your answers have been already given by someone else before yours.

Good luck, topic creator.
To be constructive in the forum, your threads should be as unique as possible.

The problem of converting merits into a forum token is being discussed now very actively. The number of conversions to a new rank decreased catastrophically. The administration is struggling with this, but not very actively. I think they are happy that there will be a huge number of low rank users and an elite that will collect all the cream from signature campaigns.

Lies and made up stories. People just make up new threads about every delusional dream that they have in mind and start shitposting about it everywhere they can. When will you people learn? Tongue

So is the forum supposed to be the place where get ranked up at lightning speed? Or is it the place where people can make threads to ask questions and discuss different topics pertaining to a specific issue?

They are not struggling. They are happy with the system and thus it will continue. You need to read more before posting shit.

The only thing you people can think of is campaigns and how to make money from them.
BTW I like that bolded part of the text. Grin

Why do I have the feeling that I know you in some way or the other?

I think, you shouldn't do anything about it being a business as it wasn't against the merit rules. Just go about your daily activities and leave the merit system alone.

as it wasn't against the merit rules.
Let's exchange merits with others. Then show your evidence of merit exchanges in the forum, you will see the strong correlations between merit system and forum rules, which results in significant punishments on the merit abusers.
Let's do it and experience it by yourself, comrade.

First of all $20 for a single Merit is overpriced. If we compared to the price of a Full Member Account which required 100 Merit, and it only cost around $500- $600. While if you buy Merit to reach Full Member it will cost around $1000, almost twice.
I mean do they have a really stupid client that willing to buy a single Merit for $20?

Since both transactions are illegal, why don't they chose the cheapest one.

I don't see anyone here mentioned about price of merits of accounts. And account selling is prohibited, right?
Merit exchange is likely violated the forum rules, not officially, but something like that.

This might be a stupid question, but really what's the point of merit? To show that one is a good poster? Are signature campaign really affected by this?

How higher the users are in rank, how more tokens they get for promoting the project in question, some projects even offer Btc or Ether to Hero Members and above, that's one the reason users want to grow in rank, if not the only reason...

What to do is doing nothing, except stay away from merit business.
Be smart with what you would like to do and keep yourself as safe as possible.

There's nothing you can do bout it. I don't think there was really a place that condemned the selling of merits when merit system as first introduced. The only thing you can do is either join them or over look it.

We should impose some taxations on the upper members holding merit points so that they only spend it whenever it is deserved.

It is not equal to do this. All members at any rank in the forum should be treated as equal as possible, including higher-ranked members.
That's the way merit system works and the final (might be final) destination that Theymos, the forum admin, would like to reach by launching the merit system.
I don't see any reason why higher-ranked members have to be taxed by their merits. It's ridiculous to do this, personally.
We should impose some taxations on the upper members holding merit points so that they only spend it whenever it is deserved.

It is simple the principle of demand-and-supply. However, I don't see reasons to do merit business because it is somehow violates the forum rules and put merit exchangers under high-risks of red-tags, bans, etc.

The best thing about limiting or putting a check on the sale of merit is that threads to sell merit on bitcointalk are not allowed, unlike the selling of accounts that bloomed a lot due to accounts themselves being sold on forum.

Without the threads it gets very difficult to locate merit sellers and at the same time gets difficult for merit sellers to find an audience to sell their merit. The business won't proliferate till ban on merit sale on thread is maintained.

You might be right, Real14Hero. Official rules to ban accounts which exchange merits are necessary to maintain healthy, positive impacts of merit system on forum users.
However, I remember that I read somewhere in the forum that there are lots of telegram groups, and something like that, which were created specifically for merit business.
