I see I have been demoted back to Newbie. Yes, I believe that I have been guilty of building quote pyramids and the like with hundreds of SM links as a bounty hunter. However, I will endeavor to change my ways and provide a better contribution to keep the forum for what it was originally intended. I regret that my introduction to BTT was by ICO bounty recruiters and unfortunately I accepted this as the norm.

You are honest  and like many others you were here to make coin via ICO bounty.

It is refreshing to see some honesty thanks as you saved me checking 20 pages of  your posts.

Thank you for your response. I feel honored receiving a response from a Legend.

I have to admit, that this industry is an exciting one to be part of.

I think the new rules is so strict. It is quite hard to get merits to become higher level.

I am glad my Diamond Membership did not expire before these changes were implemented.

My single merit means I will never again be a newbie  Cool

In all seriousness, the amount of merit begging in this thread is hilarious, as is the number of spammers who have found themselves no longer able to earn money from posting nonsense around here.

This change is require because people are using multiple account for bounty. Also the threads get spamming. also People not hesitate to full people and promote scam project. If the trust get negative they make new accounts and can become Jr. member easily so they can spam or scam again. Because of that people already loose money. Which reduce trust on crypto community. Now I think the scam project will reduce in nos. So this new rule is healthier for crypto community.

This is not a problem.
For example, if you are using firefox:

1. In Firefox’s browser address bar, type about:config and press Enter.

2. In the search bar below the address bar, scroll down and search for permissions.default.image

3. Double click on the row and hange the integer value to 2

After reading a great article on Medium, by Sebastian Wurst--a computer scientist turned digital health researcher turned digital strategist, thinking about #startups, #blockchain, #ai, and #digitalhealth--I would like to begin a thread about the 30 questions across 7 dimensions that he uses to assess an ICO thus providing a simple framework for ICO due diligence.

As a Newbie  (reformed shitposter! Smiley), I do not know where to begin with such a discussion or whether the validity of such a discussion is warranted here. If such a discussion is warranted and, as the work belongs to Sebastian Wurst, I will do my utmost to ensure that his intellectual property is properly recognized in the forum.

Please help!

Anything about ICOs should ideally be started in the Altcoin Discussion threads. If you want to discuss its wider implication to bitcoin ecosystem, you could also use the Bitcoin Discussion page.

This is a right step in action to cleanse the forum of some of the numerous irrelevant post but seriously i don't think this will solve the situation fully as already some folks have started abusing the merit system as reported by LoyceV. I know this forum has a system where it rates the relevancy of post so what if we can use this system to automatically delete post that are irrelevant to topic under discussion. For instance if a comment is not more than 50% relevant then such a topic or comment should be automatically deleted by the system.

How to create a list of every demoted ex-junior member that received exactly 1 merit AFTER Theymos announced the new newbie restriction rules...
So be carefull, this list WILL receive false-positives, but my gut feeling tells me that at least 50% of the resulting users have abused the system...

Step 1: wait untill the current week is done
Step 2: Download LoyceV's full merit history
Step 3: tac merit.all.txt > merit.txt
Step 4:
Code:
#!/usr/bin/python
import time
import cfscrape
import re
#the unix timestamp on which Theymos declared the new rule about 1 merit minimum
timestamp_start = 1537157940
#a list of the complete merit history, reversed (oldest timestamp on top), tac merit.all.txt > merit.txt
filepath = 'merit.txt'
#database with the latest message received merit BEFORE the rule change...
db_received_merit_before_newrule = {}
#potential suspect senders
db_theusualsuspects_from = {}
#potential suspect receivers
db_theusualsuspects_to = {}
print "everything intialised"
print "starting the parsing of " + filepath
with open(filepath) as fp:  
line = fp.readline()
linenumber = 0
while line:
linenumber += 1
line = fp.readline().strip()
parts = line.split()
try:
timestamp = int(parts[0])
amount = int(parts[1])
msg = str(parts[2])
from_uid = int(parts[3])
to_uid = int(parts[4])
#if the time of the merit exchange happened BEFORE the rule change,the user is whitelisted because he received merit BEFORE he knew he/she needed it to move past newbie
if timestamp < timestamp_start:
if to_uid not in db_received_merit_before_newrule:
db_received_merit_before_newrule[to_uid] = msg
else:
#only if the user never received merit BEFORE the rule change, and the merit amount was exactly 1
if to_uid not in db_received_merit_before_newrule and amount == 1:
print str(to_uid) + " was merited with 1 merit for the first time after " + str(timestamp_start) + "...Suspicious"
#keep the uid + latest msg for the potentially abusive sender for later analysis
if from_uid not in db_theusualsuspects_from:
db_theusualsuspects_from[from_uid] = msg
#add the uid + latest message to the db to check
if to_uid not in db_theusualsuspects_to:
db_theusualsuspects_to[to_uid] = msg

except:
print "error in line " + str(linenumber) + "(" + line + ")"
print "ending the parsing of " + filepath
print "getting all profiles and filtering out all jr members"
for suspect in db_theusualsuspects_to:
scraper = cfscrape.create_scraper()
html = scraper.get("https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=" + str(suspect)).content
m = re.search('(<td>Jr. Member</td>)', html)
if m:
m2 = re.search('(<td>1</td>)', html)
if m2:
print str(suspect) + " " + m.group(0) + " " + db_theusualsuspects_to[suspect]
time.sleep(2)

So indirectly you are saying that who ever receive 1 Merit is subject to be suspicious ?   Grin

Well, apply some common sense, here: people who received no merit couldn't possibly be accused of abuse...  Grin

Let's see where the data takes us before making any pitched arguments, though.

good move to have minimum 1 merit to be abble to upgrade from newbie to Jr, but if you just have to post a message like this to earn a merit, it's not so difficult...   Cheesy

@the Phamarcist:
First as a joke, but you'll agree that given the difficulty of collecting merits on local boards, your donation is a little inappropriate...

Well, a message with zero words is really minimalistic indeed. I wonder if there are other gifs with zero words which which have got merited. We may discover that saying something is possibly NOT the best strategy to raise in rank Smiley If confirmed, that could be a terrific discovery for all those shitposters who cannot write in English but they do post nevertheless in abbundance. Suddenly they may chose to adopt this strategy which doesn't require being able to communicate with words and sentences.
Let's get ready for a tsumani of GIFs on the forum - Lol Cheesy

Here’s an example: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178336.msg31165706#msg31165706. It’s jpg, but serves the purpose, and it got 14 sMerits. The referenced thread is rather prolific with these, but it is a rather particular ecosystem.

I just look at your post history. Most of the post you're posted in the ANN threads and its filled with bounty reports and annoying big images. So its quite obvious why you didn't receive any merit.

Old people have the higher engine capacity like V12 but seem like the error is in your engine. It's time to change the engine or the entire vehicle before you're going to hit by some of the old member or mod Grin



If you're considering about the modifications, Read this manual and then you can move fast like the oldies.

This new rule will bring WIN WIN on both the members and to protect also the forum, we couldn't deny the fact that this forum were abused by those greedy and taking advantage the forum's popularity by creating farm account to use to some bounty offers and it will bring a bad reputation for the forum itself. Thanks Admin for this clarification that we need to abide and follow.
