The merit system felt like a disadvantage for some new entrants, but I think that it is worth just knowing that the top owner thinks like this.

Is it fair? As for the point of view, I think that it is NO because it means to see people with little merit advantageously.

However, I think that there is a way of holding the value of the forum and expanding the possibility of creating new motivation. I want to support.

I started to look through your posts to see if I could find some to award with merits. I stopped looking when I saw that you had quoted an OP in full. There are so many posts that state that this is not just bad practice, but it's really annoying. I can only assume that you aren't taking any notice of the advce given out in these threads. That single post of yours lost you the chance of getting some merits.

lower ranked members think it is fair because they want to rank up, and higher ranked members think it is unfair because although they don’t need the merits to rank up, they want to see their contribution to the forum recognized.


Actually it is very tough to review each and every post for Merit. So somebody who need Merit need to do something that can highlight the user. This debate will be now to what we should give merit  to instead of to whom we should give merit.

High quality (whether it is low ranked or high ranked) will eventually get Merit. so we do not need to save them for it.

On a contrary I believe in giving Merit to someone who can show promise to improve or improving with time. But it is again a time consuming process and you need surplus of sMerits to start these kind of challenge.

I am great supporter of these kind of challenges but currently we do not have any.

I still have a lot of merit lying around. I for one would much prefer to use it to get quality posters ranked up but it's very hard to find anything worth bothering with. now merit's been established for a while the people who really stand out have already started to benefit properly from it.

on the occasions I do find a newbie post vaguely worth considering I check their other posts and 99% of the time the rest are all terrible junk. I can well imagine there'll be people who post here for years who will never earn one single merit and it's well deserved.

at the same time to be legendary before the merit system all you had to do was stick around for long enough no matter how dire your posts so sig campaigns should have a merit requirement for all ranks.

I really want to favour noobs. they make it very hard to do so.

I do think its fair as high ranked members are already respected enough with the amount of merit point they have, when a legendary or hero make a post its assume that the user is posting something really useful and giving more merit i dont see the point.
Someone correct me but is there any level higher than Legendary??
When a low rank member gets merit for a post he/she wil be encourage to do more, when those merit dont come its discouraging.

About being fair! Just a look at this thread is saying everything. Who is getting merit? Legendary ranked members. Are their posts here, on this thread so constructive that they deserve merit for them? I dont want to say it, just decide for yourself!

I think it is fair though, there are many low ranked members here now looking and creating a good quality post for them to be merited, but some are staying and preferring to be a low ranked member or a bounty hunter rather than making an effort to make a merit worthy post, there are also low ranked members that are staying in their local board that are creating a good quality post but doesn't know how to speak English I think you should merit those members.

I dunno about this thread but yes, the vast majority of posts worth meriting are from high ranking members.

I do my best to favour lower ranks but most of what's written is irrelevant crap. Not that I'm judging you yourself.

Obviously most of that is because they're bounty seeking morons. Much of the rest is because they don't know as much and have less compelling opinions.

I'd prefer it to be otherwise but that's how it looks from here.

I just found your thread and I agree with your statement.
But like you say before don't waste your Merit. Just give them to the low rank when they post something good or something new but valueable or for people who give their service for free.
Cause it will make community will be healthier, and the low rank will have a motivation to make a good post.
I am as a low rank right now too always fighting to get some merit too not because to rank up but because it's my score from the community, If i already being a good people here or not.

Merited by Don Pedro Dinero (1)

>..<

Merit was introduced to encourage the recognition of good posting. Unfortunately most members do not realise that by banging out any old word sequence in order to meet sig spamming requirements, it makes it harder for sources to find meritable posts, and thus stops the spammers from improving their ranks and their the earnings. If you have an activity of 50 or more, and you haven't been able to pick up any merit, then you need to stop bounty hunting, and start to make positive contributions to the community.

By the way, are you using this account far less often than the main one? I don’t see you getting many credits here, and I wonder if it is because you post less with this account or because there is a bias because of your rank, and many people who see your posts (and don’t know who you are) don’t merit you enough.

I don’t  get enough smerits to spend as often as I would like to. This has made me decide that I am only going to give merits to high quality posters, lower ranked members; I won’t give any for Legendary members and maybe not to Hero members either.

I think it is better due to scarcity to save them for people who have a long way to rank up rather than for those who are at the top already and get merits easily.

What do you think about? Do you do the same? Do you think it is fair?

I do exactly this. Giving merits to only high quality posts of lower ranked members. Cause this way, there will be stability and less complaints.

I think merits shouldn't be given out under any form of strategy as it should be donated to the member you think for you and to you reads like a high quality post because otherwise once you'd merit those who you think need it you'd also expect favors back, and things will get messier.

I'm locking the topic because I think that no much is going to be added. Actually, some of the latest post are repetitive.

I’d only like to add that I finally decided to give merits to Hero members, as they also need to rank up and 500 merits is a long way to go.
