 Well I feel one getting one merit is not a task that requires gives some one right to where signature some many people can beg for it, blackmail or even buy it so as to get it and continue their shit posting I feel at least 10 or 5 merit should be a standard this way it makes it more harder and only deserving individuals can get it with some great post and it will be expensive to buy or get through other means

Depends what you're asking. I think it's fair enough to go from Newbie to Junior Member (though I wouldn't be against it being five or even ten merit), but I don't think Junior's should be able to get a signature from a solitary merit, especially when it is so easy to just beg or buy or trade a single merit. I personally think signatures should be removed from Juniors and to get one you need ten merit and to become a Member. That would cut down on a lot of abuse and make it ten times harder to be able to earn via signatures here and hopefully it's something theymos will consider. I don't think anything is set in stone here either and it would be simple to require more merit and maybe that will happen if it becomes clear over time that abuse is rife and not really stopping many spammers.

I feel like bounty spammers are getting more creative these days. They are making brand new profiles in pursuit of that single precious merit.
Not having pages upon pages filled with bounty reports does help their case. Well played guys, well played!  Wink

Agreed.
Others now need 1 merit but because you are special, you and only you will need 10.

Not really picking on you or anybody in particular. It's just general observations based on multiple recently made accounts being merited for whatever reason.

You are a newbie with 2 posts so it was not hard to check your post history. Both posts are compaining about the new merit system, nothing else. As soon as you start to post things that help the members here on the forum, you'll have a chance to get a merit from the merit sources. If you are reading the forum for a long time, you should know the merit system, so if you need merit, you need to start to add value to the forum. If you are a newbie (a real one), you should read first before you complain. It's not that hard to get 1 merit if you post quality things, so you should give it a try.

I still believe that the optimum structure is to have a zero merit requirement for newbies and juniors, and strict signature restrictions to prevent them spamming for bounties. This means that newbies will be newbies, and juniors will be either "members in training" or spambies without hope. At the moment, good newbies are lumped together with the "no hopers".

I disabled Fit to Talk registrations because of applications by non-member spammers. Click here to send me a PM if you would like to join.

You need ten to get up to member rank,that should be your goal..
  I used to be simply a bounty hunter,but the new system requires a lot more.. Hoping to rank up in coming months,i do not know much compared to the guys in here but I'm trying hard

Beginners do not how can not understand that this forum was created for the development and popularization of the crypto currency.
People come here to earn money, and they are ready to spam our forum with useless messages in order to get tokens (which may not be traded on the exchange).

We have already discussed and discussed many times, it's time to change our attitude to the forum.
Nobody here forbids to wear signatures and earn money. But try at least 50-100 of your posts to write something useful (at least 1 post).

I see a huge amount of indignation from users who have 100-200-300 posts. If you look at his profile, there is one shitposting.
Of the hundreds of posts there is nothing to give merit to.

Revise your attitude to the forum, be useful!

I am agree with you that hard work is key to success as we all know, same in this case, as we all know that membership will be given to those whose answers are best among all or you have to pay for its membership, without doing so it is just like purchasing medals for your selves and feel the winner, that is the sign of stupidity.

With all due respect sir there is nothing played here I just made a comment pls it high time the account of spammer  should not be melted on other. Is it a crime to be a newbie or am I been picked on because I am not up to your standard

I bet you will not get merit if you use the word "sir" frequently in the future, I am sure that the old members of the forum have been very disgusted with the word.
The best advice I can give you is "please stop using the word "Sir" and don't use it in the future."

Pls sir this your advice is the worst I have heard all year
Sir is a way of showing politeness I just made a post and I knew it would be greeted with a lot of criticism well I know some will like it and some will not.  And for the record sir I will not stop using the word because it has and will take me places

It's not the worst advice. You're certainly free to use "sir" and I'm sure many appreciate it or don't care either way, but most of the people I know on here actually don't like it when people use it. It seems more fake and sycophantic to me, and it's usually used when people are trying to suck up or apologise for something they've done wrong. You really don't need to use it. Just call people by their username and show politeness or respect in other ways if you wish.

Also, why are you assuming everyone is a sir? There are over 42 different genders and you are assuming we're one of two. #triggered.

I would argue that.  Grin

Word Sir is offensive to most people and it's being associated with shitposters. It won't take you far, at least not here in this forum.

The only reasonable use of Sir is when referring to Satoshi Nakamoto, it is well-documented and widely approved by the users here.

I want to read Sir Satoshi first post in this forum , but I can't search his post any more

The new rule about has some how relieved the group a bit of spam but the question is that is one merit enough
 Well I feel one getting one merit is not a task that requires gives some one right to where signature some many people can beg for it, blackmail or even buy it so as to get it and continue their shit posting I feel at least 10 or 5 merit should be a standard this way it makes it more harder and only deserving individuals can get it with some great post and it will be expensive to buy or get through other means
I couldn't understand the first 7 words of this post, so you're going on my ignore list. 

Newbies really ought to give up on making all these threads here, because the only thing they're doing is showcasing their egregious mangling of the English language, and these posts usually say very little that's original.  This particular guy is going on my ignore list.

Edit:  I looked at his posts, and the only ones I'm allowed to see are in Merit ever since the new merit sources were added.  It's not an unreasonable expectation that his prior posts were in spam megathreads--but someone correct me if I'm wrong.  I have a lot of sections blocked.

That would be a good idea because majority of people coming to the forum these days only care about the bounty and nothing else and they will be the first to dump the tokens at any price when they manage to get the tokens, which has brought a bad name to bounty hunters in general. I believe with time, it will get to that level, it's a gradual process.

it all depends on the person one merit may be enough for some people but others may want 2,3 or even a lot more. For me one merit would be fine but like i said someone else might want 10 or even a 100 but i think those people are willing to write a lot of posts and may really like helping people learn about bitcoin. I will help people learn about bitcoin when i can even if i don't get a merit for it. It is not about what you get its about the feeling you get from helping someone.
