I find it highly annoying that this merit system is still around.
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).

Some people nowadays are selling merits to others. This is a very bad practice indeed. If it happens we will lose the trust on the merit system. Though I doubt the number of people who still have trust on merit system.

I think merit system will help to reduce the unnecessary post or which is low quality based on this it will motive the person who is knowledgeable and who really work hard for this.

They are still young. Give them some time to grow, I am pretty sure they will start building little "quote pyramids" and their post will look like this in no time...
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.
Merit is a good way to encourage someone to participate more. But nowadays some people manipulate it and people start not to trust this. It’s really bad.
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.
Merit is not popular among the peoples and it need to be eliminated. i believe it will change in near future.
...just enter random "ICO"(or bitcoin) instead of "merit"...
ICO-X is not that bad system. You can utilize it. You can encourage people through it. But it’s true recently ICO-X is squeezed.

I don't think they really need merit neither they care about it because they will create bunch of accounts over and over again but it really surprised me to see them outside of their natural habitat , it is actually good that we have merit to prevent these spam bots from ranking up. OP can you imagine army of legendary spam bots?

Selling merit is restricted. The system should be disabled as soon as possible. And bitcointalk should be an unbiased fair platform. Admins alone can’t monitor every thread. That why we must report these cheaters at our own responsibility. I am absolutely against this merit system. Hope that it will change someday!

Merit is becoming something you can buy just like a crypto currency...  Embarrassed

Can you show us where this activity is happening ? Who is selling merit ?  I did not see a single thread where anyone is selling merit and you are saying merit is being buy/sold like a currency  Cheesy

Look at all these one-line shitposters giving their barely coherent opinions on how bad the merit system is!  This is an excellent example of how these noobs have no clue why they're not going to rank up.  They think the merit system is biased and unfair, but they're not seeing what the rest of us are seeing--zero effort, zero talent, zero sense posts that will land you on people's ignore lists.

I'm having a hard time convincing myself that these posters aren't alt accounts, because the shitposts in this thread all sound the same and the usernames kind of follow a pattern (some of them) of WordxWordy.  I haven't checked the account registration dates, but I'm betting most of them will be registered right around the same time.

Take ownership of your shitposts.  The following are complete garbage:

Merit is a ranking in bitcoin cryptocurrency. It created for bitcoin in merit ther poor become poorer and rich become richer.
It is strictly prohibited to sell merits. Unfortunately this kind of incidents occur. But I still believe to earn merit by posting quality posts. We all must use our knowledge to create quality posts to earn merit.
I understand why you reacting like this ,unfortunate but it is true that whenever you will try to do something like this it will cause problems in merit system , but we all are hoping that very soon this problem will be solved

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.
I would say it’s getting manipulated day by day. Some people are using it in a wrong way which leads to state where we can’t easily trust the number of merit someone got. So it must be trustworthy for betterment of us.
Nowadays Merit losing their popularity because they are not maintains their performance. People want to bitcointalk in this platform.

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..  
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.
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.
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.

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.
I think there are still some people who get their merits by sharing useful information. Those who goes for shortcuts, will be lost in the long run. So we should follow the authentic rules and regulations.
Yeah i have also saw this and this looks really irritating to me. Same things happens in Facebook, reddit, twitter, etc. I wish we have a monitoring system to prevent these things.
It's a common thing and we cannot help it. If you look at other platforms you will find that all of them has this selling points or merits business. I think we can do nothing in this case.
And it just keeps going, even after the bullshit has been called out:
We all know getting merit is not easy. we post lots of quality post but still we didn't get any merit. In that time if we heard people selling their merit. that really frustration fact for us.
When I go to quote most of these posts, interestingly enough they all have a line break before the quote closes.  Try doing it for all the members who have WordXWordY usernames.

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).
These accounts doesn't really care on what they're posting. You don't need to explain it well, for the reason they're not seeing these. As long as they've given what they want to say, they don't bother reading those threads again.

The last phrase of your post would read better missing a "t" ("i believe it will change in near future")...
If only he's not here for this things "$",btc,eth then I think he will consider your advice.

-snip
wutda?. Almost? Neh. All of these are made by newbies and I think someone is trolling around this thread.
Maybe you should move it to Trashcan (This Whole Thread), for the reason you can't possibly give these accounts some punishments one by one.
======================================
And there you have it again.
======================================
Quote from: Youggairch
Offering merit is disallowed, in any case, this doesn't mean it wouldn't occur, there are a predetermined number of mods and administrators. They can't screen every single thread, not to mention screen off-discussion deals. That is the reason we report these miscreants.

I find it highly annoying when people complain about merit, and they haven't bothered to spell check the word.
Google: Did you mean: merritt

I talk in my sleep, and and my wife asked me who is that Merrit I am talking to whole night, I didn't know what to say, she asked me am I cheating her with Merrit and finally I had to tell her about my relationship with Merrit.
That leaves only one solution: she should sign up too, and share your relationship with Merrit.

Any post or thread about merit where it complains about it should be deducted the creator of the complain 1 Merit,
and if he does not have any then there are minus merits!
But.... Among all the serious posts, I love to be able to show some sarcasm once in a while! Merit turned out to be the best way to do so Cheesy

Actually paying one merit to start any thread (not just merit-related) might be a good idea.
If that would have been implemented from the start, I would have lost 31 Merit. A small price to pay for a cleaner forum! And, on average, I've earned much more Merit per thread, which would make 1 Merit per thread a good investment.


Why are the Newbie zombie spambots in this thread not nuked yet? I've reported one saying this: "There's a plague of Newbie accounts in the last 2 pages of this thread, writing generic shitposts, rewriting other posts, or it's just a word-mixing-bot. Many accounts were created on the same date, all spamming in a similar manner. Please check the thread, and nuke all that deserve it." (I don't usually create reports this long)
Let's see what happens.

Good, I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed this crap.  I did check the registration dates of the accounts whose posts I quoted, and a lot of them did register on the same date.  I don't have much doubt that at least some of them are alt accounts, but those are all shitposts and should be nuked IMO.

In crypto not understanding, investing is more likely to be a loss. It should be invested with merit. Your talents can benefit you. Of course, you have to acquire skill and knowledge.

The best way to benefit from crypto investment is to use your merit. You will benefit from your knowledge and skills. Your merit will take you to a good position.


Look at this idiot. Clearly not reading anything.

These farmers are swarming everywhere. I'd bet if these were looked into they'd be in their hundreds:

VindictiveFelony. CryptoTwinkleton. wtf.

For the love of Satan get rid of signatures until Member rank otherwise this is never going to change. Good luck with these sort of spammers trying to get ten merit. This is some sweatshop stuff. As soon as these spammers hit junior member they join a crapcoin campaign as some of them already have and get paid for this. When is enough enough? When 99% of the forum consists of these users? Looking at the threads they post in this has nearly happened.

Hi all!

I find it highly annoying that this merit system is still around.
It is supose to be stimulating people to make good quality posts or topics, but i doesnt seems to work this way.

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!

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.
Greetings!  Undecided

I've only just come back from a reasonable "break" and only received 2 merits in total yet.
I was actually just as surprised, but not simply because the merit system is still there, but because people have started using it as a measure of someone's post quality.

I don't often come across something I would definitely describe as "great quality", yet I see people throwing with merits by the 10s...

I guess we'll have to cope with it. I don't think it's being removed anytime soon...

getting merit is not easy task from my opinion. you have to wait if you really want to get merit.Try to post informative article. Don't feel hopeless . You will sure get merit.


I think you mean: "Getting merit is not an easy task, in my opinion. You have to be patient, if you really want to get merit. Try to post informative articles and don't feel hopeless. Then you will get merit for sure."

Indeed, it may not be easy for some to get even 1 merit, whilst others get multiple per post without significant differences between their post qualities.
That's one of the main things that annoys me, honestly. I see people posting not-too-good posts who have received a lot of merits, whilst others can barely manage to get a couple.

There's some serious farming going on here. This is some straight up sweatshop shift work:

Just look at all these one liner shitposting account farmers on this page and the previous:

Is it worth reporting them? Don't seem to violate any rules.

If you see some irrelevant or funky activities in the forum you can always report them to the admin. Selling merits is prohibited and both seller and buyer should be removed from the forum. It is hard for moderators and admins to search for this kind of activities so we should help them by reporting as many as possible.

Why are the Newbie zombie spambots in this thread not nuked yet? I've reported one saying this: "There's a plague of Newbie accounts in the last 2 pages of this thread, writing generic shitposts, rewriting other posts, or it's just a word-mixing-bot. Many accounts were created on the same date, all spamming in a similar manner. Please check the thread, and nuke all that deserve it." (I don't usually create reports this long)
Let's see what happens.
The one I reported got nuked. Some other spamposts are gone too, but not all.

Please do. Account farming in the dozens upon dozens by regurgitating one line shitposts over and over and posting back to back isn't allowed. One Russian farmer had his 200 accounts banned for this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1912475.0

Sadly, I think that was the last time an admin looked into shitposting farming. It wouldn't surprise me if this user had more accounts than that. I'm waiting for the why was our entire sweatshop accounts banned thread.

It takes time to nuke them and is incredibly tedious. I must have nuked around 50 yesterday. The report queue has been flooded with people reporting spam posts in bounties threads and other reports are getting buried but they get worked through eventually.

Merit system has bad effects and also have good effects on this forum. Overall, the merit system is intended for all of the members here in Bitcointalk, it is for own good. YES, you can say that there are some people will use the merit system to make more money  ( by selling merits ). But not everyone will do that, and the good effects of merit system is much better and it is for the own good of the community.

Only one things is crystal clear though. If merit would have been introduced when this forum was launched, non of you legendary/ hero members would hold your current rank  Wink
