Fact remains that in order to be of any relevance and of any use to this forum, some level of intelligence and knowledge is needed especially with the current merit system in place. Topics/posts have to be seen to well thought out and meaningful.

This makes me wonder, have you been ever confronted with a topic where you click the 'reply' tab and without a clue as to how to what to type in response and how to contribute meaningful, and this forced you to research some more about the subject matter before returning to post a reply?

There are two different ways you should do when you've confronted a topic that you didn't know nor related.

First, if you would like to reply on it, make sure its not "off-topic" so in order to give a reply, read the whole discussion first (OP and all replies) and if the discussion didn't not satisfied you then its tome to make some research about the topic. In this method you will be able to catch up on the discussion.

Second one is, if you have confronted a topic you doesn't know, instead of replying "spam post" or "off-topic post", it will be much better if you just ignore the thread Smiley
No one is forcing you to reply on a thread that you doesn't know what its all about.

Sometimes, some topic/thread does not need your opinions if it's just nonsense.

Not really, I think lower ranks just find it hard like Sifon said, to have a normal conversation ( like text message speaking ) while having a useful post at the same time, which is why I don't really say anything on the forums that much, all I do is lurk around and read.


This makes me wonder, have you been ever confronted with a topic where you click the 'reply' tab and without a clue as to how to what to type in response and how to contribute meaningful, and this forced you to research some more about the subject matter before returning to post a reply?

This happens to me all the time, I want to say something on the topic at hand, but I don't want to be seen as just butting into the topic, and/or being informal. For example I would say ( lol maybe if you didn't blah blah. ) < --  starting sentence with lol, didn't end sentence with period, etc. etc.

Hmm, Personally I  don't reply to topics that I have not understood in the first place. Unless I want to ask question to gain more knowledge about the said topics.  You can still have your thoughts even if you don't fully understood the topic or just leave it as is.

I guess the most important aspect here is that why would you reply to a certain topic that is not clear to you?
Now if that topic interest you then a research is really needed so you can contribute something to that certain discussion.

The answer is no. If there's a question on a forum that I don't know the answer to, then I don't have any right answering it. Unless of course, the thread already has no replies and the OP is in genuine need of help, then I might contribute my Google-fu to assist with finding the answer. However, I wouldn't already commit to posting before I have determined the situation.

I think what you describe is only partially complete, unfortunately. It tends to be most people on this forum commit only half of the two steps you mentioned, they click reply, but they don't even bother to do the research to actually produce a compelling response or even contribute anything of value to the discussion. The typical outcome is they'll regurgitate the crap that somebody else has already said earlier in the thread in order to boost their point count for some signature campaign.

The question should be... what would this place be like without any intelligent or thoughtful posts?

People who make idiotic threads do often get trolled heavily in Meta. However in Bitcoin Discussion and Economics and sadly Trading Discussion recently, members make repeated comments about the same thing without putting in any effort o write something new or discuss some points on the discussion.

Not always. People can be noob at times.

Maybe its just you. I pick replies of people in topics which I feel need to be discussed and try to keep the discussion on topic. What I get irritated at is the amount of shitposting by the bottomfeeders in the community. Merit does stop them from ranking up but it does not control their shitpost vomiting habits.

I think it depends on the people who are on this forum and the time they would like to invest in this activity.

Personally, if I see a thread where I don't really know anything about it and I don't have time to "dig deeper" into the subject I refrain from posting. I think this is basic common sense.

On the other hand, some people just want to increase post count for bounty/signature campaigns or they are simply ignorant.

I am happy that you spot this very early as a newbie.

Do not do this until you do not have a talent to explain in a better way, There is high probability that your answer is plagiarized then and you can be banned.  Better to provide the direct source link in these cases.

Reading will help and feel free to ask your question in correct forum boards. Make yourself aware with all the stickied post in the board you are posting and most topic start having duplicate replies after third page (until it is not an active discussion between OP and others) so yo can leave them.

Maybe just maybe, That OP had been in this forum from quite sometime now.

I don't get where does this plagiarized answer came from. It's somehow a question, on how'd you handle on a such scenario.

There are some topics where I did conduct a research especially when I think that the topic is not fully answered and/or a thought is still missing, though not all topics deserves our response. Sometimes being observant is the best thing to do.

Seriously ? Shouldn't it go like this:
1/ You read topics that might interest you.
2/ You have something to say, you click on reply, or

Correct me if I'm wrong, because I really have some hard time to understand what we are even talking about here...

Haha ! I deserve that.

My point was: When clicking the reply button, you should already have something to say. Not the way around: clicking and then force yourself to write something (eg. for a bounty) because obviously it won't be either useful or funny.

Fact remains that in order to be of any relevance and of any use to this forum, some level of intelligence and knowledge is needed especially with the current merit system in place. Topics/posts have to be seen to well thought out and meaningful.
Yeah! Not only eradicating the shitposters but also having more intellectual people was a big help to further improve the status of our forum. Anyway, being intellect doesn't mean you should become a genius or a crypto technical expert first; just becoming a decent, obedient, and determined knowledge-seeker is already enough to be qualified here (IMO).

Quality standards should be maintained inside the forum because I'm pretty sure that nobody wants this beloved place of ours be filled with trash-like users, right? Smiley
This makes me wonder, have you been ever confronted with a topic where you click the 'reply' tab and without a clue as to how to what to type in response and how to contribute meaningful, and this forced you to research some more about the subject matter before returning to post a reply?
Of course, that's what I always do every time I'm not well knowledged regarding the topic. But when I feel that a little search will not be enough to reply then I refuse to do so because pushing my luck might result to a spam which will be criticized later by the other members. I don't want it to happen.

I've kind of done this but you need some sort of vague knowledge on the subject in order to work out the reliable sources that can give you the answer. Sometimes if I look at the technical support boards and someone mentions a BIP I haven't heard of then yes, I'd search it in the process of replying.

I think you are Bengali, so this is wrong in English. Post it properly in English. Grin

While I'm having a pretty hard time understanding what you remotely mean by this, except there's another English language I'm not familiar with, I did post in English sir. Again, maybe I don't get the joke if it's one.

Not quite. When I'm a bit hazy on the details I'll check google to refresh my memories and recheck whether I remember things correctly. Sometimes this gives me links to provide as further reference. Sometimes it turns out I know jackshit after all, at which point I have a new thread to watch (rather than to post to). It's a win win either way.

Yes, absolutely. I've been in here for quite a time now, just as a guest, reading the forum, learning and seeking for information. To me was a huge step to make an account and to start posting -in fact, this is my very second post-. Well, why? Because this place is huge, and it has a lot of information and a lot of informed people. I didn't want just to run into it blindly and make others lose their time by reading whatever nonsense came fast to my mind.

But, well, maybe this is just a matter of respect and education. I'm not a child, neither a teenager, so I can just imagine how much time a person can put into a thread to create something useful. So, in order to be respectful, I consider that it is better to remain silent if you just don't have any to add or, if you do have something to say, just to take your time, like the thread' s author did.
