For me, I don't really care if someone or somebody give or will not give merit nor if I will ever get merited.
Yup you are suffering from the "Why I dont get merit" disease. You should stop thinking of merit and learn to be helpful and informative in your posts if you wish to get any merits. Besides it will also depend on the merit source who might just ignore your post or may have run out of merits.

I don't think that is too easy to get and don't even know how to get it.  
Which is why as a new younger member you should read the threads more than you what you write.

So, might as well just forget about it and continue as I am right now.  With my rank right now as Junior, I could still earn from bounties, from social media campaign and airdrops.  It is really like airdrops when it comes to income as a Junior, but what to do?  I'll just wait till I get that if somebody would give, rather than thinking of it over and over.
The sole importance of bitcointalk forum being bounties - you can forget about getting merited. If you are not willing to post anything constructive then you may just remain junior member forever since it wont hamper your "shitdrop claiming". Grin

I'm still struggling to understand the purpose behind starting this thread. :/
For a moment, I thought maybe it is an attempt to get some merits, but then I realize how come a person can get merits by complaining about something that he is doing himself at the exact same time? :/

For me merits are an indicator that your posts didn`t go unnoticed. If you receive a merit, then you have been heard, your comments have been useful, interesting and relevant. I believe that all forum participants need to grow above themselves, learn new information and share it with others. If a person has reached a hero or a legendary rank through activity, it doesn`t give him the right to relax and not make efforts to write quality posts. We all have to continuously develop and improve. And merits are a great incentive. They encourage the forum participants to try to write more qualified posts, go ahead and become better, rather than being content with the result already achieved.

What do you need merits for?
Lack of merits leads to depression, anger and anxiety.
Receiving merits, especially in huge chunks can lead to happiness, increased level of dopamine in brain which at some point, when you don't receive merits, can lead to...well...depression, anger and anxiety.  Smiley

So, why do so many users try to get them from the very beginning of their registration
Money?

In addition, outside this website, these merits don't mean anything and can not be used at all.

To be honest, I do not quite understand as well. I am grateful for the merits that were given to me, but I genuinely do not understand why so many people are hung up on getting them. They said it was for the signature campaigns, but I guess if you do not have services to offer and are just here to learn cryptocurrency and communicate with other crypto users then it should not matter much? After all, it is not like we can trade them for bitcoins, right?

A higher ranked account usually gets paid more in many signature campaigns. So getting merit could add up to earning more bitcoin. Also, if someone is an account farmer, they can sell higher ranked accounts for more BTC.

They don't mean anything in the real world? Merits get you laid. Scientific fact. There's a reason people call them pussy points. Next time you're trying to impress a lady whip out your phone and show her your merit page. Instant aphrodisiac. Though maybe it depends on how many you have. One or two probably isn't impressive but when you're one of the merit big boys like me I have to beat women off me. It's a gift and a curse.

You can. People sell merits and it'll probably become big business. Most people will probably just cough up for Copper Membership rather than buy the one merit to become Junior though, but to become higher ranks merit will become increasingly harder to get and more valuable/costly.

Probably buying in 1 merit just to rank up junior member is not hard to find, but that is a risk to the merit sender once they have caught on MOD for sure there is a punishment to them(red tagged). I've lucky that I already rank up on this rank before the merit system was implemented and until now it is hard for me to hunt even a single merit and stuck up on this rank, but I don't mind it as long as I can help this community by sharing my thought to them using my genuine post even I'm not good in English.

It is for ranking up purposes ofcourse. As we continue to rank up,  the more opportunity to gain right?  Admit it or not that's the main point why we need those merits.

A higher ranked account usually gets paid more in many signature campaigns. So getting merit could add up to earning more bitcoin. Also, if someone is an account farmer, they can sell higher ranked accounts for more BTC.

Still, should it matter for someone who does not have services to offer, especially if you do not plan to put links on your signature?

That could only work if the girl knows what bitcoin/cryptocurrency is. If she has no clue what it is, I am not sure it will work?

Oh. Thanks. I did not know that you can sell merits for bitcoin.

Definitely and if you always follow a thread like that then definitely you will only get annoyed. There are some of the users here that are not fan of reading that will go start a thread without searching if anyone here in the forum has started the thread already. They just want to get sympathy from others who did not also get merits.

And? they can't get merits for they will just be ignore with the merit source for they are considered as spammer and always do complaining instead of helping other users.

In my case, i reallt want to rank up and enjoy some privileges of it.  Especially having an avatar! 

Think of having a profile with a meme as an avatar!  Meme is life you know.  I really want to have a meme as my avatar hence I need to rank up, and ranking up needs merit.

Okay, it really matters.

Have made my modest contribution to this noble cause  Grin

Merits are important for those people who value it and to those people who respect this forum.. Yes merit is useless outside the forum but neither the forum care for the rules in the outside world. This forum has set its own rules and its own merit system and for us beginners merits is a prize or a trophy that gets us motivated each day to make and create more meaningful topics that will help our fellow users and this forum..

For me here is my reason why merit is important:
1. Merits give me an awesome feeling of motivation the merit in me that has been provided by those merit giver makes me more inspire to create more useful topics and useful replies.
2. (Real Fact) Merits is I need to get ranked up high so I can be able to use signatures and has more stakes in signature bounties
3. Merits shows how active and useful you are in the forum. This shows that you don't make only this forum for spam bounties but you are contributing even a little in the forum.
4. Merits is also a "kodus" that you might give to someone that contributed a meaningful topic or replies in the forum
5. Merits decreases the spambies and creates more meaningful threads and replies in this forum
6. Merit is far more everything that completes your profile ! Smiley

That are some of my major reasons why merits is important so don't think that merit is useless merit is one of the biggest changes that this forum has created and it helps a lot ! Smiley

agree, if you're an avid reader/poster and you want to make things cool, avatar is dawey. They stick to the mentality of you're a "bounty hunter if you want merits", people deserves to rank up too even they're just here for educational purposes.  Wink

Also, merits symbolize the good things you've done here. If you have some, then the community will see you as one of the people who strive hard and dig some ideas to gain merits like doing some extraordinary, informative and interesting topics.

1. Merits give me an awesome feeling of motivation the merit in me that has been provided by those merit giver makes me more inspire to create more useful topics and useful replies.

this will explain a lot, it'll be your motivation to work hard and you'll be the inspiration of some aspiring quality posters.

Of course, outside of this website, merits have no value. Just like beyond bitcointalk limits, rank, trust, activity no value. But these factors are relevant to forum and community members. We come to bitcointalk and live by it`s rules (or violate them). There`re special laws, so the values are also peculiar, they are confessed only by the participants of this website. Mostly people hunt for merits because of money. But this isn`t the only reason. Many participants thus self-actualize and self-affirm. Merit performs the function of like, approval or consent. And for many people, it`s a way to raise self-esteem.
