Theymos, so when are you going to remove signatures from Juniors and/or make them achieve some sort of merit to become one? This would have probably stopped this guy from earning anything. Newbies and Junior Members should not be able to get paid for copy and pasting.  If you can't earn some minimal amount of merit then you don't deserve be able to earn here.
Inasmuch as am tempted to agree with you on this, I feel you are being too hard on lower ranked members here. Am sure many of the big guys here wouldn't have gotten to where they are now if the merit system was in place when they were newbies. Secondly, your submission lacks the sense of motivation for newcomers. The average pay for Sr.member to Jr.member is 8/1, this is fine and a sort of commensurable for all except those who have huge appetite for greed. Finally, majority of the people here started from what you guys might call "shitposts" before they learnt and became acquainted with the requirements of this forum. So I suggest you steer a middle course in your disposition.  

No. We're not being hard enough. Any shitposter like you can get paid here as a junior with no effort and that's the problem. And I don't know what you mean by 'big guys' but if you can't get merit then you shouldn't be able to earn here. You've been here nearly a year and you've got a grand total of zero merit. Well done. I've received more merit today then you have in a year. You should't be getting paid for the lazy crap that you make and if you had to actually put some effort into earn here I'm sure you would actually try harder. But you don't need to. Neither do all the other Newbies and Junior Members here that sign up in their thousands and that's why this needs to change and signatures need to be removed. If you can't get ten merit to have a signature then you don't deserve to be able to earn here.

Am sure many of the big guys here wouldn't have gotten to where they are now if the merit system was in place when they were newbies.

You are not right. And it's easy to prove. Look at the number of merits of the higher ranks participants. You`ll see that usually it is huge. And this isn`t because they are Sr. Members or Heroes. This is because they earned these merits. When the merit system was just launched, we were all essentially on equal terms. Yes, each rank had its own number of merits "by default". But then each of us could either earn, or not earn merits. I met on the forum Members, who had 83 merits (the original 10 + 73 earned) and Sr. Members with 253 merits (the original 250 + 3 earned). It isn`t difficult to see who is working better. However, such situations are exceptions rather than rules. Most often, we can see Members with 11 merits and Sr. Member with 323 merits. This means that the "big guys" aren`t just lucky to grow in rank before the introduction of the merit system - they really deserve it.

Secondly, your submission lacks the sense of motivation for newcomers.

Motivation for beginners should be not a pay rate, but the possibility of taking them to the forum community. Beginners can get here unique knowledge, communicate with coryphae in the crypto-currency area and share their original ideas. Instead, they focus on profane things such as earnings in signature campaigns, and think not about their own development at the forum, but about increasing their rank in order to make more profit. What they don`t take into account, however, is that this behavior leaves them behind the board of the present reality of the forum. And after endless spam and useless posts, the forum community won`t accept them.

Finally, majority of the people here started from what you guys might call "shitposts" before they learnt and became acquainted with the requirements of this forum.

Many newcomers are writing junk posts. However, those who really want to learn and comply with the requirements of the forum, grow in rank and receive merits. And noone calls them shitposters. Don`t think that "big guys" can`t distinguish non-acquaintance of a newbie, who is just adapting and trying to understand the topic, from the ignorance of participants who don`t even set a goal to learn.

I tend to agree with  nattykio - many of the "big guys" (legendary accounts) wouldn't be there  - and some shouldn't be there. But that is also why they changed the system - to improve that. The legends here that did get merit since it was introduced (even if it is just 10 merits) are the ones that I respect and deserve to wear the rank.

Not having merits also doesn't mean that they are a shitposter - it just means that their posts are not merit worthy and maybe they should improve their posting habits.

Merits don't discriminate by rank or nationality  -just post quality.
Proof that some of the highest merited members are not senior members.

The thing that make these people stand out is hard work.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.
