Any post or thread about merit where it complains about it should be deducted the creator 1 Merit,
and if he does not have any then there are minus merits!
This should give the most to think about before they complain about it and scream like little babies because they do not get merits!
First look, then think, then write, then post!

As if they care about that, lol, if only this can be true, there will be a lot of members here would have a negative Merits and thats a fact. I think 80% of the population here will receive that.
People nowadays doean't think about the consequences of what they're about to do, as long as they can keep whining on everything and still nobody gives a single attention to them, they will make repeated mistakes as long as they're alive.

Actually paying one merit to start any thread (not just merit-related) might be a good idea. Perhaps could be implemented on some restricted boards like Serious Discussion.

Looks like there is someone saying that he is having a hard time because of this merit that has been implemented on this forum. I know it is hard to rank up without those MERITS that are needed but it is a challenge for those who know that they could do quality post and not just spamming threads here in this forum. Instead of complaining about it OP, why not just work into it so you could earn some merits.

It is not that hard to be honest, but don't be annoyed if not all of your post doesn't get any merit, because merit means "worthy" and not "shit post".

Take it positively rather than being against the system. It is a way of encourage others about their activity, join those topics and give your perception then other people will merit you if they like your opinion. It’s interesting.

Merit is not that bad system. You can utilize it. You can encourage people through it. But it’s true recently merit system is squeezed.

If you have money, you may buy merits from buddies. But I think, what it would do? Rather you may try starting good discussions, commenting relevant and quality comments and try to solve the problems people faces in here. That may make you earn merit in a legitimate way.

Precisely, I'm not agreed on buying merit because time to time it will be detected to the mods here to have a suspicious way of getting a merit. Even I stuck to this rank I realized that forgot a merit for a while and continue sharing an idea on this forum, and helping others problem. But lately, I am busy with my real business I temporarily stick on a mega thread to keep active on this form.

i agree with you brother. I feel frustrated when i continuously post quality post but still not get any kind of merit. sometimes i am against with that merit system. But someone told me take patience and try to post more and more quality post. In lower rank position it is difficult to get merit.

You noobies need to get of from jerking off to such threads. Seriously you have disembark on a shitposting spree even on a legitimate thread on meta? I am sure this has been said a hundred times before and you all are here just to get noticed by a merit source to grant you some. Why not make you own threads for you rant or do something good for the forum and get awarded for your contribution?

You will never get merits if you keep posting in spam mega threads and revomit the same words over and over again. Learn to be a bit creative and study how other people are getting merits. Wink

We have to accept that we cannot do anything in this matter as it is a very general object. Merit is becoming similar to buy a cryptocurrency.

This is really sad if people are upto buying merit. The purpose of merit was to encourage good posts. If this has become a means of business too then the forum should have a look into this matter and stop this as soon as possible..

It’s all about how we utilize anything that we are given. Merit is a very good option to encourage someone’s activity and thus increase his or her participation. But it’s sad but true that merit is being abused.

Merit is not here to win a popularity contest not a beauty contest. It is actually a soft approach to the spam problem. While a tougher approach would have been much easier to implement (i.e. eliminate signatures), the merit system gives people a decent chance here if they bare any interesting in the forum itself, without moving into the drastical terrain. It does not need to be eliminated at all (perhaps even enhanced it terms of lower rank requirements).

The last phrase of your post would read better missing a "t" ("i believe it will change in near future")...

I find it highly annoying that this merit system is still around.
After almost 7 months now of existence of merit system you still dont learn to love the forums system.

You are still complaining about this effective system and blaming it because you are not ranking up, 10 merit is not that hard to get how much more complain will come from you if you're on your way to "full member"?

If you will just learn to embrace the system you will surely rank up more than you expected.

Im telling you that I also start without having any free merit after the system implementation I also once complain about it but after all I realized that this system make's this forum more organized and challenging and I learned to love it. Just accept the fact that merit system will never be gone and only the strongest and loyal member's will stay.

It is supose to be stimulating people to make good quality posts or topics, but i doesnt seems to work this way.
Yes it is and it work's accordingly to the plan, those old forum member's already notice the good effect of the system. Most of the post now are in the mid quality unlike before.

 Based on this merit system is good I think because it will motivate people and encourage people also poor quality post will be reduce. I think it will be a good decision.

It is suppose to be stimulating people to make good quality posts or topics, but i doesnt seems to work this way.
I believe that there is no perfect system and the merit system is not perfect. Even though the system is working fine (at least for me), there are some loopholes in it and the users can abuse it anytime. As you can see, even the most crappiest post here have been merited and some by 50 merits.

I see alot of people selling there merit to whoever wants it, is this even legit? It means people with multiple accounts can dominate bitcointalk, earn the most bounty rewards( multiple with more accounts) and can give merrit out to themselves and can get alot of bounty stakes, while other who do there best arent even able to join because they cant reach member status!
There is a section called "Reputation" where you can report users who are abusing the merit system. Yes this happens to those users who has multiple accounts but if somebody can trace their merit history and found that he is abusing merit, maybe all of his/her accounts will deserve a negative trust.

Even more annoying is the fact that members and above( not all of you ) just post crappy posts all over the place, and keep spamming away with no consequences. Its just sick, like in the real world, the rich get richer, its insane do something about it.
This is the worst problem now, spamming. Its like a virus that has been spread thru the forum. People spamming useless shitty posts everywhere especially in the Announcement section.

For me, I think the merit is doing great although like I said its not perfect. In the next years, maybe the admins and mods will implement another features here that will help to lessen or remove the problems here in the forum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
P.S. This thread has been invaded by newbies and Jr. Members. I saw that the last posts of this thread composes of mostly Newbies who are appreciating the merit system (or maybe not).
