Actually yeah that's not a bad idea....
It's actually pretty good. 

Maybe they could do something with the color of those coins you get on top of your username--maybe change them to red or some other color, and perhaps make that a function of merits?  That would make users stand out from the pack.

I'd suggest that for every extra 250 merits you get another of those semi-coloured coins next to your name, ending with the legend title at 2000 merits.

Maybe also onec they come up with a design for how good people are at reporting posts (or at least how many good reports they have) we could think of something theymos would have in mind and likely accept for an additional merit coloum as a printed score takes a lot longer to look at than an icon "an image says a thousand words" can be true in this case (or at least a certain number of digits)...

Having another membership would really be good. However, in addition with merit, the next rank could have required for 500+ good reports which may help the forum a bit more. Not everyone uses the report button. Also, it will boost people to report more which will help to clean up the forum.

I think that that is the purpose of this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4742257.0
Sorry, I was not concerned about this one.

I do have to start using the report button more. Only posts I tend to report are ones in the altcoin section and I get frustrated at all of them quite a lot because usually when you report a thread, in the time it takes to get through all the posts on the last page and report all the crappy ones, a few new pages have sprung out of the same thread...

People have suggested Mythical / Mythic before but I'd prefer something else.
I don't know, it's not a horrible title, but it does go along the lines of Legendary in its blandness.  There have been threads about this before, but I can't recall exactly what names have been suggested and I don't recall having heard many that I was really enthusiastic about.

If you search 'mythical' in Meta you'll find a few. Think I proposed a couple names somewhere (though I might be getting mixed up with the donator ranks as I remember proposing few names for them).

Turns out it might have been theymos who suggested mythical:

Probably the next one would be "Mythical".

At one point I absolutely thought there probably should be at least one more rank above Legendary, since with time the number of Legendaries would be huge and there wouldn't be much that was special about it.  Now, with these merit requirements that are going to have noobs pulling out their hair for years, I'm not so sure about that.  Even lower-ranked members who aren't shitposters are having a hell of a time ranking up to Sr. Member or Hero, much less Legendary.  At this point a higher-ranked title means more than ever.

New legendaries will be very rare, especially for new users signing up and only the best of best posters will now ever achieve that status. However, there's still a hell of a lot of people who got that rank before the new system and probably a lot of low-quality contributors, and that's why I think there should be some distinction. Maybe we should demote all Legendaries who don't achieve a decent amount of merit because it means very little when all you had to do was be here a while. Maybe remove the airdropped merit from them and they're just a Hero until they've achieved the required merit. Then that rank would mean something.

Theymos created the Legendary rank a few years ago I believe, but can't say for certain about all the others. I wonder if we'll ever get Lamborghini Member  Grin? We're going to need another rank above Legendary eventually (if we don't already). Not sure what it should be called, but others have suggested some titles somewhere. I think the new rank should require a very high level of activity just so it sets you apart from everyone else and so that rank doesn't become too common like Legendary has now.

A few have mentioned a higher rank achievable by -

Activity: 2000
Merit: 2000

I’d be in favour of this because as time goes on there wioo be far too many shitty Legendary Members who were luckily bumped to 1000 Merit by theymos when the new Merit system came in.

Lambourghini Member sounds awesome Smiley
Or maybe P I M P Grin

I've suggested before that they should just double with every rank. Makes it easier and doubling each time makes the ranks much difficult to achieve whilst keeping some standard/order. Legendary should probably become fixed at 960 and then Mythical(or whatever) at 1920. In addition you could require a hell of a lot of merit so only the best of the best posters ever achieve it. Would be nice to have some additional perks for it as well. Something like a custom title or an image banner allowed in your signature would be nice. Something to try aim/achieve, especially when Legendary doesn't even mean much (or come with any additional perks to Hero).

I'd say just "Legend" sounds good. Or maybe just add a bold font to the current Legendary rank.
Actually yeah that's not a bad idea....
Which one: "Legend" or "Legendary"? I prefer the former. It makes "Legendary" look like "Legend-ish" Cheesy

I noticed that if we include both of your accounts, your 2000 merit celebration was a bit late Grin
If you count like that, hilarious* has already beaten satoshi!

Activity: 2000
Merit: 2000
And 5 years later, when we're having the same discussion, 3000 will give you Full Legend, followed by Sr. Legend and Hero Legend Cheesy That sounds bad Tongue

Legendary legend after that isn't a bad title though.

And I was suggesting:
...
hero
Legendary
Legend

In that order....
although adding current names wouldn't do much to annoy: Jr Legendary, Full Legendary, Sr legendary, hero legendary, legend, jr legend....

And we don't include hilariousandco here Grin. He's just an account theymos uses when he gets bored of being theymos for a while and wants to spy on his villagers Grin...
