It should exist for sure but the some improvement are needed in current form. For instance, there should be limits of max merits allowed per post to 5 or something like that.

Why the topic has not been locked or moved to other boards?
Such annoying topic should not appear in Meta board, especially more than 6 months after the start day of merit system.   Roll Eyes

Merit system supposed to be the best thing that has be introduce to this forum because it has really reduce the meaningless post. But with all due respect, the merit system never take it due process it seems as if merit is taken a dimension which I can't really explain. My opinion is that merit should be awarded by forum moderators to maintain the standard of forum rules.

Only devs and admins should have smerit and they should reward it to the people making appropriate posts

I don`t think that this is a good idea. The merit system was invented in order to eliminate spam on the forum. And this shouldn`t be done by admins, but by the participants themselves. After all, the forum is a meeting place for tens of thousands of people who are developing this platform, making changes and organizing activities. Spam worries not only admins, but also the participants themselves. Therefore, the forum community should also fight against it.

You write your posts not for the administrator, who should praise you and give you a merit. You write them in order to take part in the discussion with other members of the forum. Therefore, recognition must be earned from them, and not from the admin, who doesn`t have time to read every post on the forum. The forum community is a self-organizing system. Its entire meaning is for the participants to feel equal and not dependent on one supreme administrator. Therefore, everyone has the opportunity to receive and give merits. And this creates a communicative fellowship that is responsible for its actions.

You got 1 merit since January, which is more than a lot of shitposters have gotten.  It's a start.  Most of the posts I could view in your profile were in the Speculation section, which isn't exactly a hotbed of merit-giving activity.  Plus you seem to have a problem with capitalization of words, which doesn't go unnoticed.  You might think that you can write posts on bitcointalk as if you were texting someone, but don't expect any merits if you do that. 

Are there threads that are "hotbed" for merits? If yes, may I know them and why they should be. Secondly, what is the rational behind making some sections of the thread "hotbed" for merits?

There aren't "hotbeds" that I know of, because I don't have the statistics about which sections are having the most merits given out.  And I would suggest that it isn't about which section you're posting in but the quality of your posts.  You can't expect some 100-character post in broken-ass English to earn you merit, and I suspect that's exactly what shitposters are counting on.  From what I've seen, people tend to seriously overestimate the quality of their posts.

I think Meta might be one of the sections where merit is frequently given out, but the regular posters in it know that noobs have infiltrated it, looking for merits--and it's obvious, and it's also apparent that these noobs are not getting merited.  

So ultimately there is no "ideal section" to post in if you're looking for merits, but as I've said many times you would do well to avoid spam-infested sections like Bitcoin/Altcoin Discussion, Economics, and Speculation.  Even if you make a fantastic post in one of those, nobody is likely to read it.  On the other hand, you shouldn't be choosing where to post based on your own need for merits.

If you want to focus more on getting merits you should be active in this section. Posts in bitcoin discussion seldom get merits.
And that's basically what I just said one post above you, except I said that low-ranked members who are trying to earn merit are pretty obvious and thus it will be a waste of time for them to write their shitposts in Meta.  Bitch, you're going on ignore.

I guess you're in the right section which is Meta. Most of the people who are giving merits are in here. They won't bother giving merits to spam sections. If you want to focus more on getting merits you should be active in this section. Posts in bitcoin discussion seldom get merits.

Your posts are utterly retarded:
my favorite exchange is crypto currency.This is a trading market
i don't believe that is the time trade is better. it's hard to realize but i can say day time trade is not a good option.
the best coin for long time invest is bitcoin because bitcoin has a bright future.
i sell my coins in ether wallet,crypto currency

...and there are tons more just like this.  Those are all asswipe; they're all in garbage spam threads; and you're a fantastic example of someone who's overvaluing his contribution to bitcointalk.  You suck, and you're going on my ignore list.

Moderators are already awarding every post that "maintain(s) the standard of forum rules" by not deleting it and by not banning you. Don't expect a cookie for cleaning your room and doing your homework.

I think you've adapted the culture of calling the project makers as "devs" in a bounty campaign chat.  Roll Eyes
As you can see, our admins and other merit source has a lot of smerits and will definitely give those to deserving people. Make it sure you're one of them before askin' similar question here in meta. Let the higher-ups discover you and continue your work (If you know yourself you've made good posts).



People nowadays always askin' why they don't have any merits even they're a "good poster". You can check these guys listed on @Coin-1's topic and search how do they manage to earn merits. It doesn't mean you're always posting, you'll receive merits, that's wrong. Posts have their own definition and value too, if your posts was a great add-ons to a certain topic then you deserve it but if you're giving false statements and not good opinions, don't expect one. Accept the fact that you can't manage to earn merits now, but soon enough if you study really hard how the things work, you'll gain it.

Also, avoid rephrasing similar ideas because it's just making things worst, don't push yourself to make posts if you don't have any interesting things to be stated and will just rephrase again other replies. Be original.
