Bitcointalk has a huge number of users because cryptocurrency was trending last 2017 due to its huge market price pump that reach to 19k USD. This was only the results of the hype for cryptocurrency where more and more people joined and to learned using the Bitcointalk forum for cryptocurrency discussions.

The total users of Bitcointalk forum has 2,413,225 members based on Bitcointalk Stats. Indeed a huge number for the forum so we could expect that there are many members here that will do spam posts. Besides, some of the members are not native English speakers and only few like Jet Cash has seen the huge problem and contribute the Fit to Talk English Forum for the betterment of the members in speaking English.

Out of 2,413,225 members of the bitcointalk forum only few of the users are with ranks from jr. member to legendary rank.  The total users o self made jr. members and member according to Vlad230 thread.

Quote
1. How many "Self Made" Jr. Member & Members users would there be if we only considered the earned merit and what rank do they have now?

Code:
16041 Jr. Members
5562 Members
Yes, you read that right, there are a total of ~21k users that have received between 1 and 99 merit.

21K users or only 0.87% had rank up for jr. members and member rank. Yet, there is a clearer picture for the percentage of the active members here in the forum. Take a look on this picture being made by mazdafunsun in his thread

https://i.imgur.com/KXXjJ8d.jpg


Newbie and Brandnew members made the most of the  numbers which is shown in the image and only 7 percents shows accounts that are active less for the demoted jr.member rank to newbie due to the new restrictions of  jr. members rank implemented by the admins.

The number just shows with more or less 7% of members here that are active in posting and consist only a few percentage of the total users in the bitcointalk forum. However, the 7% or 168,000 active members could still manage to create a huge traffic of posts in the forum. Thus, making some headache of the forum moderators of Bitcointalk.

The members now are reaching meta just to get merit? This is the current situation for this section where spam posts are everywhere looking for some merit source to pour some merits on their self made threads and that is why TMAN suggested that all the merit sources should put a hold on giving merits in meta for a while. However, the problem would still exist even if all the merit source will take their time to rest for a while to avoid in getting annoyed. The problem will not be solve and forum will full of trash post though I have seen some good posts too in this section that are very helpful.

My way to avoid in getting annoyed with those spam posts are avoiding some threads that are clearly being made just to spam based on the title of the thread. And one could get still learn in cryptocurrency discussions through local boards. As we all know that some of the sections here in Bitcointalk are having too massive posts to handle in a certain section.

What if?

We create meta sections, begginers and help, Bitcointalk discussion, altcoin discussion and economics sections in our local boards (I think this is suggested already).  It is good have a new features with our local boards that for sure it will accommodate high volume of posts in the super mega threads section. Then bounty hunting rulings should also consider posts in the new features of local board. The bounty managers could do KYC on accepting applicants for them to regulate the number of participants per country. Thus, the spam posts will not be high as we had now in the super mega threads.

You really must be slightly retarded - quoting me moaning about these shit attempts at merit farming don't you think the people reading this already know what the price was in December?  I know you didn't have a search about the total number of members as there have been a few threads recently about it. I mean WTF is this if it isn't trying to get merits in a shitty half arsed way?

That sounds extremely niche.

You want a beginners section in the local boards so people can ask what the best wallet is to use there in their local language as well? Or the 1000th post about merit in your "Local Meta" board..? Seems extremely overkill.

Because you're simply spreading the posts over a "larger" area. Ofcourse it'll look like the spam has lessened.

It seems pretty clear what your real reasoning is behind this idea; more sections to post crap in without people noticing/paying attention to it as much...?

No, the post in super mega threads will be distributed each in every local boards which will lessen the number of posts in that section. It is just like spreading the high number of posts in SMT to every local boards. The discussions would surely be active as it will not condemn the whole forum. It is just being decentralized in a way through local boards.

Because we know that the forum could not accommodate all the posts in the SMT sections.

No your wrong, If we let the forum moderator in every local boards to function then definitely the burdens from the admins will somehow be lessen.

Anyway, all of this are just to discuss for the betterment of the forum. It is only the admin that could make the decisions and it is only the privilege that one member like me could express freely in this forum. Unless if I would be ask to shut up!

I agree with the opinion (TMAN), spambie topics posting boring and annoying are too long and circling.

I understand the purpose of TMAN, making the topic of spam for beginners, for the future Meta is better and more professional.

LOL.  That's all those boards would be, if anyone even posted in them at all.  Honestly, I stopped reading OP after the first paragraph because it's a bloated mess, and I had to move on to the rest of this thread.

All those local sections?  This forum already doesn't have enough moderators, and adding more parts to the whole would mean Theymos would have to manage an insane number of people, plus pay them all.  Not going to happen, I'm sure.

In addition, people forget that this is just a discussion forum, and it mainly happens to be in English.  It's not going to be able to please everyone, and there's absolutely nothing keeping anyone from starting their own non-English forum for bitcoin discussion.  The real issue, and why people don't do just that, is that there would be no signature campaigns on a new forum because nobody would want to advertise on a forum with no traffic.

Why does this strike me as a case where immigrants won't adapt to the already existing culture and instead want to bend the culture to them?  Probably the American in me, I guess.  And I don't mean that in a racist way, but it's unrealistic and frankly it's disrespectful for someone to do that.  

It seems pretty clear what your real reasoning is behind this idea; more sections to post crap in without people noticing/paying attention to it as much...?
I don't know if that's actually the case.  How spammed are the local boards right now?  It's always been my impression that people barely even post there because most campaigns don't pay for local board posts.  I've read some complaints in Meta about the French and Russian (I think) sections being invaded by shitposters but not much else.

I got your point and it does look disrespectful. Well i had no intent to do anyway since I am also a newbie here trying to understand the situation of the forum itself. It seems like I am pretty annoyed too with some threads here and would like to move some of the discussions in our own meta sections if possible. It would be clearer to discuss using our very own dialect.

I am reflecting this conversation and maybe should be careful next time. Well, at least I had learned something from this discussions. A newbie is always a newbie...

I stand corrected for using  the "population" instead of  "users" for it is not the right word to describe the number of the members registered on the forum. I was the one who brought up the word population and no one from the sources had mention the word "population" in their posts. It was indeed my mistake for not using the right word to describe the number of registered members for the forum.

I will locked this thread seems that it is not helpful and maybe it will took one so hard to rank up now and some admins had already gone some headaches on some members here on the forum (including this thread). LOL. sometimes I wish that I had contributed but somehow it is the opposite and I should be careful next time.
