Do you think people look at your rank before they decide whether to read the post or not? Don't be silly. People care about the quality of contributions and not your rank, but if you make quality posts you will soon rise through the ranks anyway.
Agree with your point!
Quality is the most important thing to catch attention of readers.
If threads contain twitter link (most of them come from campaigns), etc. those sort of annoying threads will never catch readers' eyes, they will ignore such boring threads very quickly.

I think the merit system seems fair! Although I'm not sure about the reasoning behind the decision initially,
but basically higher rank = people can earn more from bounties, which seem to be the primary reason for many people to use the site.
Merit system = reward quality content = fill the site with quality content which might attract new users?

The system is not a perfect fairly system, but it is fair enough for the forum users.
In addition, it is a really fair system for all newcomers after the launch of merit system in January of 2018. All newcomers since that point have the same starting point, have the same odds to earn merits; and only really deserved users can rank up due to merit system effects.

This has not happened even after merit system. I mean we can see some quality posts here and there from members who are trying to get merits and rank up. But it had failed to control spammers which was the main motive. You can still find thousands of shit posts being made here everyday which makes threads look like garbage. Even the valuable replies in those threads loose their value because of this.

This cannot be avoided because it cannot review the release of each advantage. But this system does need improvement, and many senior members are using it to make money.

Well it sucks to be those who joined after January 2018 or were newbies or juniors during the month of January. Those people are ones who have been hard hit by the system. But if you ask me it was necessary and I am not joking or trying to puff my chest.

Bitcointalk has seen a huge flood of shitposting bottomfeeders who need to be exterminated. The merit system has been able to curb the ranking up of these scum of the forum. It has hit other legitimately good posters with equal gusto - collateral damage.

This cannot be avoided because it cannot review the release of each advantage. But this system does need improvement, and many senior members are using it to make money.
Of course the first thing that comes to the minds of shitposters is making off the forum. You only observe that they make money obviously because you are also interested in the same thing. Future shitposter here Roll Eyes

personally me think merit system should not be there and ranks should be done via there post counts and quality of its posts

as of its too hard for new comers too to gather merits from old members who always do trades and exchange merit only for them but the person who is new and if he dont has btc to exchange then its less chance for him even after posting quality post on bitcointalk forum

lol now dont give me merit for this i know the points which me said is true and many will agree Tongue

proof of merit abuse done on this forum https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3402060.0



If you ask me about remove merit system, then I will say no. Merit system help to improve forum reputation. Specially reduce spam and shitpost. Other thing is forum members are motivating to make consatrctive and high quality post due to merit system. I believe this system should continue on future.
I know there is some merit abuser. It doesn't mean that should be remove merit system. If you found marit abuser and make a post. They will be punished.

I've been on a couple of merit awarding cruises today, and I managed to find a couple of post to award with merit, but they are both by senior members. I'm starting to get really pissed off with the attitude here. The merit system is great, and it has got rid of some of the rubbish, but it has also generated a lot of indifferent posting. Whatever happened to intelligent, informative comments? Nobody cares about trying to improve their posting skills, or their contributions to the forum. They all say they are/will, but in reality they do f' all about it. All they seem to expect is upranking for trotting out standard rubbish to enable them to scrounge money from bounty programmes. What do you guys do in real life? Do your read or write letters to each other, or do you just communicate by sending stupid pictures over your cell phones?

I'm going to have to change my policy in awarding merits, because it's taking too long to find decent posts. Maybe I should just give 25 merits to a single post every day, but it won't be to someone who is whingeing about the system.

I really agree with what you say here, sir. This merit is good, but still, the system has its flaws. It is not our place to say this system is not good, not fair without giving a much better solution. I also really hope someone will appreciate the merit system by showing how this system will work in accordance with its purpose, one of which is the contest and reward for those who have quality posts and can help solve a person's problem.

I think saying "ranks should be done via their post counts and quality" is exactly why there is a merit system-- to know which posts are quality posts and should be given merits.

I may not have merits yet, and I also am frustrated about not getting any. But I'm a new member, and I see lots of other users here with lots of merits, which kind of gives me hope because it means it is not impossible to get them, just extremely hard.

I know where you're coming from, but the merit sytem is there to preserve quality and to filter the forum of spammers and shitposters. Good luck to us!!
