Yes, I can see that it's much more difficult to rank up now than it was before merit was added. It's very easy to get enough of it to become a member or even full member, but you have to really work for it and be lucky enough to get spotted and rewarded.
When I see people asking about merit or those who are getting discouraged I always ask them: why do you need it so much? If it's only because of the signature money then maybe you are exactly where you should be.

Yeah, it's possible to rank up. If you know @theyoungmillionaire, he/she's great in doing quality posts and received 554 merits. If you're a dedicated person, everything is possible for you. Put some effort on it and make an extraordinary thing that's not a very common, It might attract some avid readers here and give you some merit for that information.

tl;dr
After commenting to your post may I give you piece of advice, don't make your post like a huge wall of shit because its not pleasant for the readers to see. I didn't read your post to be honest.

Same, it's very confusing.

@OP, please divide your whole content into paragraphs so viewers can easily read your thread.

Why are some people getting bothered of not getting ranked up nowadays? For me, the main reason of rank is for bounty campaigns that is why most newbies are complaining about the merit system. Although there are some benefits of rank like the length of the text and the posting of images, if you are just here to get information then ranking up will not bother you. There are many who got ranked up already and they are an inspiration to members here who want to rank up.

Probably if a person is being conscious about his/her merits, then let's jump into conclusions that he/she wanted to do earnings in bounty. If a person only wants interesting knowledge and ideas, merits won't bother them since it's a useless factor if you really want to learn. I don't get it, why are they focusing on such things even they lack of ideas on how to start a quality discussion?

People really should stop meriting shitposters whining about merit in Meta. It just has a knock on effect so more people create a thread trying their luck and fishing for some merit. This guy is worse because obviously he has alts that he doesn't want to bring attention to and probably because they're all making terrible posts and his argument would have been shot down straight away for that alone.

This is turning slowly in a megathread but I'll leave here my two satoshi.



I wonder how long it is before Meta is taken over by shitposters repeating the same thing page after page.

In my opinion people are trying too hard to get spotted. They should stop thinking about merits and continue what they did best. Let the shitposters remain shitposters because they dont contribute anything expect their traffic to the sites finances. No good comes from them and so they dont deserve to rank up. Plain and simple.

Newbies would have to spend for Copper membership then. That also is good for the forums finance. Still they wont get ranked above that because they are here to get money and that attitude itself will make them shitposters.

I don't get why those 2 members gave OP merits though. The post was really just a longer version of a complaint topic about merit.

The answer is very simple and short: IT IS POSSIBLE

Taking only users who hasen't been airdroped single merit - all merits earned by their selfs (simpy saying - new or "fresh active" users)

Member rank (10 - 99 merit earned): 3.228 users
Full members (100 - 249)               :      63 users
Senior members (250 - 499)           :      12 users
Hero members (500 - 999)             :        4 users
Legendary (1.000+)                       :        1 user

Is it easy to become  Senior, Hero or Legendary (talking only about merit)?

Not as easy as before, but as you can see some people manage to do it in just 8 months

Because what Op is doing as well as many other users here in the meta section, is to try to fish merits by posting things related to merits that may seem nice to see but that are useless as we are in 5 to really look at the merits, in 3 to report the abuers and 1 (now they have removed Lauda from the default list) to tag them.
So even if they merit things related can be cool to look 99% of these thing have no value since there is a diffidence of looking and seeing.

Look at this thread Merit abuser + abusing bounty with high rank and green trust, need DT a green trusted account CAN be envoled, but as you can see nobody care, 0 replies.

This was the latest instructions that Theymos gave to me. I'm doing the best that I can with my delegated responsibility.

You are now a merit source, or if you were already a merit source, your monthly source merit was increased.

I recommend:
 - If a newbie posts something that could be even called good, then give them 1 merit. It doesn't need to be a great post.
 - It's best to use all of your source merit. If you don't naturally do so, try giving people more merit per post on average. If you don't send your source merit, then nobody gets it, but if you do send it, then the recipient can pass half of it on.
 
Thanks!

I cant agree more, and I think most of us also agree that there is a lot of high ranking members who could not pass Jr or Member status with new system but this is just consequence of the situation in this unique internet place.
You cant blame the new ran requirements since they are necessarily for keeping forum cleaner.

Maybe in the future we will see that high ranking users get some " punishment" for being shit posters as well.

But for now I think that there should be some kind of special badge that would indicate that user is self made rank member .
And I will explain why, not just because they are more worthy the rank because of their unique and quality posts but because it is beneficial for readers. For example,when i see member with odd number of merit, i often click on their posts to find cool content. But if this user has 101, 103 or 105 merits I do not click on his post history even if he had earned all 101 merits not just one . Reader cant tell if the user has earned 101 or 1 merit just by looking at the profile.

This could be interesting suggestion but think that wont be any time soon. Think that this suggestion could be good to send to Theymos or some other staff member as suggestion, and to see if they can do it or will they consider doing it. Its good idea after all when this system is applied many received this as default by rank and like you mentioned this could mean that someone with full member rank for example that is earn his merit is more better then the one who got this by default.

I don’t think either. There are too many proposed changes and theymos will implement the few of them that can benefit the forum. It would make sense if when the merit system was introduced, there was a reset, but having badges for merit earned and also ranks for merit airdropped+ merit earned+ activity it’s unlikely to happen. It is one system of recognition or another.

Definition of self-made rank seems to be open to debate as I saw on another thread, where there were confronted opinions as to whether the self-made rank should apply for those that got enough merits but not the required amount of activity. Rather than placing badges and more rank titles, an easier solution would be simply to place the merit counter as a dual entry or one slash the other. For example, “Merit: 130/100” would indicate that the profile has 130 merits, 100 of which were earned through sMerit TXs.

If you're here looking for high rank means that you're old player.
IMO, because of merit, it will be difficult because the forum no longer for you anymore.

Genuine poster is not looking for rank but quality.

After signing up to this forum only today i have a few comments to make regarding the ranking system. I have been using crypto for a long period of time and have often used bitcointalk and read links from here but just never bothered to make an account because i didn't see any reason to as i could already read anything i wanted on here without having one. Bitcointalk is the most well known,active and best source of information regarding a variety of crypto currencies and the crypto scene in general but as ranks go, as the title suggests is it possible for people to rank up on here still? If i was to have signed up to here a couple of years ago i could easily have progressed through the ranks but with the strict rules imposed by the regime in charge i think it is virtually impossible to pass the rank of jr member. To gain enough merit without being a well known or already established user of the forum would take such a considerable effort that any user would also need a stroke a pure luck to even reach member rank now. The chances of being merited even a few times are very small let alone gaining hundreds of merits. Luckily i do not need a high rank for what i chose to use Bitcointalk for so it would mean nothing other than being a status symbol. If you are already of a high ranked position then most likely you like the recent stricter rules as you don't need to jump through the hoops yourself to claim merit and be able to rank up anymore, but when i look through the profiles of most of the higher ranked members i doubt more than a handful of them would be able to progress past the rank of Jr member themselves with the current framework were they not already ranked up. I think Bitcointalk has a responsibility as the largest forum of it's kind to the crypto-users of the world to provide a fair, open, informative and balanced platform for everyone. Although the user base has grown at an incredible speed, hopefully bitcointalk can be adapted to the new climate and continue being there for the community as it was originally intended. Hopefully there will be some loosening of these rules or an entirely new system implemented sometime in the near future so new users are able to participate in all that this great forum has to offer. Well that's my 5 cents worth, thanks for reading.
it is possible, but spend a bit time

Its possible to rank up!
Merit is like women!
If you just want to get them on the easy way, you will not get them!
You have to do the right thing to get them!   Grin   Wink
This might be a good analogy because you often do the right things and not get merit, like with women.

Yeah,  it is still possible even if we think that it is hard. In fact,  I saw one of the threads here before that congratulates those users that strive hard to achieve high rank.

Overall conclusion,  it is possible to all users that only deserved

Yes it is possible and if you are reading a lot then you should know it by now for there are threads related to ranking up. I can refer you to this thread [Merit Analysis] "Self Made" high ranked users based on earned merit provided by vlad230.

TMAN was right if one does not care about merits then why bother bubbling about getting merit? If you are no concern with ranking up then you can just leave your accounts on that rank and then enjoy the stay here in the forum with the cryptocurrency discussions. I bet there are some good topics that the forum could offer here.

then why the fuck do you care about merits? if I were knew I would be more concerned about rules and what really goes on here.

However, if you really wish to rank up then it will be great to achieve in the hard way. The harder the sweeter achievement you will get. Just take is positively and get along with the members here by starting to make an apology with some of the members or admin that were being offended.

This is a challenge for all of the members here who wishes to rank up in this forum.
