Merits received for the bounty in my opinion are not entirely honest. People give their manager a sign of appreciation that the campaign was successful, but this violates the very essence of the merit system. Initially, it was aimed but that would stimulate people to create high-quality content, and eventually becomes a sort of forum token.

Literally campaign managers don't need much of merit because they are not kind of being after it, but a sign of appreciation can be a good sign in order for other user distinguish that the campaign manager handles smooth, but not always to prefer merit about it. Trust should be given instead of merit, However it is the givers decision, the only problem is abusing it.
I agree that the sender will dispose of his merits as necessary. However, the rules of the forum clearly spelled out what merits are and how the system works as a whole. If users will use merits absolutely without control, then the system will turn into a forum token, which will be used as a local currency.

I have also observed this occurance. I didn't look at it from this your stand point,  but I suspected eye service or favour seeking. Because I don't see the ingenuity of a bounty post that will attract merit.

Good observation for you though.

Maybe we could find a system of meriting Merits.......
Again I am having to repeat the same thing - Meriting a post in a subjective concept. People may find posts worth meriting but then others may not concur the same idea. Now there is no regulation regarding this till date so the problem is arising. Worthless posts are something getting merited while better posts go overlooked.

You know what I mean.
You know you could explain yourself in words. I am not that bright in interpreting vague sentences.

I am - as you might know - not a fiery opponent of the (in)famous Merit system, but we really aren't going to discuss this all to way up in absurdo, I hope...
Still its working for now. It needs a modification on what I said above and nothing more.

Thanks.

That's exactly what I was saying by the way. Posts like this where people are discussing: 0 merits. I saw bounty threads (or ANN made by the team, similiar topic) with 10 merits or more.
I just think that a solution could be closing merit system for bounty section and just give trust.

I guess that the entire base (and problem) of the merit system is giving the power to maintain a whole forum to normal people who merit posts in a subjective way.. Smiley

It's probably going a bit far, but maybe the bounty culture should have it's own merit system.
I agree with this, If people want to give merits to bounty creators it should be their own merit system, in that way base on how many merits a bounty thread has would mean that the bounty itself is successful and won't be a waste of smerit needed for ranking up because bounties does not help the bitcointalk with helpful information. Bounties are bussiness and won't contribute to this forum. Bounties is for market, other purposes/goal and not for bitcointalk to be discussed.

Discussing about merit does not mean they are going to get merited. Some newbies in the forum are having this false delusion that talking about merit and asslicking the merit sources will fetch them some beggar merits but no its not so. After a while the posts get redundant and people will no longer even visit the thread except those who check their "New Replies to your posts"

What are you implying? That merit is biased? It may be so in your eyes for reasons unknown to me. I believe it is a good thing. It actually creates an environment worthy discussing in rather than posting to get paid.

There are people here who could probably use it more and who deserve it--though that's rare,  People give their manager a sign of appreciation that the campaign was successful, but this violates the very essence of the merit system

If the buonty is managed in very good way I think yes, bounty manager deserve a part of sMerit, if we "accept " 50 Merit for posting a pic https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2728315.msg30354958#msg30354958, (yeah he is probably abusing the system looking his merit history https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;u=1005975)  I don't see why we can't say "thankyou" (even if they are already paid) to good managers (only the good one!) for months of work!
