Ok I get it. There are 1000s of pumpers and scammers out here and a bunch of people get jaded over time from the constant bombardment of meaningless interactions. But lets be honest, those are apparent from a mile away. Most of the posts look like a "hey thank you for making such an incredible project you are good man"

The interactions ive had have varied, and honestly ive met some amazing people that have spent a lot of time educating me and sharing their knowledge.

Parodium and Yahoo62278 have been super cool and honestly deserve a shoutout for being overall great human beings

But there are a bunch out there that just suck. Its cool to ignore or just be too busy, but when you go out of your way to demean me for not knowing something, thats just not cool. And to automatically assume motivations are nefarious with most evidence pointing otherwise is just stupid. The unfortunate truth is that this seems to be the majority out there.

If you are going to label someone, at least have the decency to exercise a modicum of thought.

Its quite obvious we should be supporting camaraderie, and ill be supporting Parodium and Yahoo62278 with my business. To those others that ive talked to and received nasty attitudes, you should look to them as an example of professionalism.

May I inquire what is the great contribution of Parodium and Yahoo62278? I am not familiar with them.

Anyhow, I think the Merit System is the answer to your concern.  You can give merits to users that you think are awesome. 

Sadly, you do not have merit yet.  Use this as a motivation to rank up and generate quality posts to earn merits then give them some.  Moreover, use their example to contribute in this forum.

Right, so as a beginner here I can't reward anyone for anything. I thought this topic made sense since there are plenty of people in my situation

Ive seen people with over 100 merit that regularly post what could be considered below subpar forum material. Im sure that it generally works in the way you are saying, but at the same time ive seen plenty of examples that didn't "merit" their merit

Or maybe im just salty for not having a single merit with so many cool topics running smh

You can give positive feedback to those that helped you. Shoutouts - although well-meant - don't really benefit anyone and might be considered as a form of spam. If everyone would do it, half the forum would have those kinds of threads where people pat each other on the shoulder Undecided
If someone responds with useful or supportive information to your questions or any other post of yours, thank them and maybe say what helped you. Or better yet, help others who might have the same issue. By helping others you'll eventually get sMerit to send yourself.

But you're right, there are indeed members that have merit that they wouldn't have received if they were new. Old accounts got their respective minimum of merit according to their rank, that is how they got it in the first place.
Nevertheless, have some merit and spend them where you consider them well earned.

Good point. Im still getting used to a forum that has such a high economic value on participation and interaction.

Really appreciate the merit. Ill make you proud Smiley

This is a common problem for internet forums, as my experience tells me. When the topic/hobby circle is small, the problem is less severe. It is easier for small circles to kick out spammer/troll/meaningless posters. It's like consensus. When there are not too many nodes, PBFT-like methods can apply. But it doesn't scale well when number of nodes increase.
