But don't you think sending him those merit is actually encouraging him to continue in his spammy ways as he get pays higher now that he's all ranked up.
Maybe, maybe not. I wouldn't mind to see the entire altcoin bounty board deleted, but as long as theymos allows it, let them spam just that board.
Quote
how about advising him to change his ways (clean up his account) just as you did something ago to me
I'll try:

As a beginner I really find ways to minimize my bounty spamming or make it zero bounty spamming .. I am really learning more about this forum and for the fact that for now I cannot avoid bounty spamming because I am joining bounty campaigns and reports are required.
What's with the quote pyramids? There is no technical reason to quote yourself for the scraper to pick up your posts (if anything, quotes make scraping more work). And if you do quote yourself to keep a complete list, why don't you delete the old posts? Now you're just spamming the same spam many times.
Did you know you can clean up your post history by deleting all old spam posts? That's what CryptopreneurBrainboss did too.

Thank you for that advice ! =) I am so sorry because I am still learning about this forum.. and thank you for giving me that advice so now I can ask you a questions regarding about it because it makes me curious if its ok?

1. When I delete my old post (Bounty Spams) Do my activity will decrease?
2. When I delete my old post (Bounty Spams) Do my post on my profile will decrease?
3. I will delete only those bounty report post that has already been finished and been rewarded. Am I right?


Thank you so much ! Smiley and in the future can I message you mam/sir LoyceV if I have questions about this forum? If its ok? I only do research and self study in this crypto world but still there are some answers that I cant find in the internet and only those people who has experience can answer it.. so if you do that I will really appreciate it ! Smiley

Funny but from the first day i received my very first merit I got a particular feeling, i can't actually explain how I felt but excitement, joy and sign of accomplishments was involved.

This is called an e-orgasm. Now you should go out and have sex with a person in real life, which is better. You can even use you getting a merit as a chat up line. She will be very impressed. Merits are guaranteed to get you some action. That's why some people even call them 'pussy points'.

1. When I delete my old post (Bounty Spams) Do my activity will decrease?
2. When I delete my old post (Bounty Spams) Do my post on my profile will decrease?
3. I will delete only those bounty report post that has already been finished and been rewarded. Am I right?

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2766177.0

If you delete posts then you will obviously lose the post count for each one you remove. If you remove all the posts you made in an activity period then you will also lose the 14 activity for that period. Just leave them if you're worried and work on improving your post history from now and onwards.

That depends on how the campaign handles the reports. To be safe, you shouldn't delete them before getting paid.

Thanks guys ! Smiley I appreciate your help ! Now I understand those things now atleast now I know what to do to improve my post and so on ! I want to be a self made legendary too like Loyce (but it may take me years.. lol) and for the sir/mam stuff i'll changed it.. I use the sir/mam stuff is because I'm used to it I always used it to respect my seniors.. That's the way here in the Philippines and also when I play online games !

In addition I will follow the advice of "hilariousetc" i will leave my old post as it is and i will just improve my post from now and so on.. (deleting my previous post will take me long..lol.. still busy with officework =) )

Merits are guaranteed to get you some action.

For me, one of the main advantages of merit system is that it serves not only as a encouragement, but also as an impulse for further development. This system really forces participants to try harder and do more. Therefore, a feeling of satisfaction from a well-deserved merit is a good incentive, because you`ll want to feel it again and again. Thus a new driving force is emerging, pushing to write better posts and make contributions to the forum. Therefore, I regard unlike many other users the merit system primarily as a motivation, and not as an obstacle.

What's with the quote pyramids?

This, probably:

At the end of the week, you have to quote your weekly report.

Though most of the bounty campaigns ask to submit reports in new posts every week (I know this because I checked a lot of them just now to find the reference I'm using above), but some of the old hunters still use the same pattern to post their reports, and the ones coming after them are simply copying their pattern without even reading the rules themselves. If we talk about this bounty from where you picked up the reports pyramid of sheynlee18, it doesn't even ask for reports in their thread, but they ask their participants to submit their reports through google forms:

Report your reposts every week in these forms to get the stakes  :

But it makes the fact clear that the current bounty participants don't even bother to read all the rules before joining them, but they simply fill the form for joining and start tweeting/retweeting and stuff, and when the time comes to submit the reports of the week, they just simply copy the pattern of someone from another thread or they may even have a pattern saved somewhere in their computer which they use to submit their reports for every campaign which is why all their reports look exactly the same in every other bounty campaign they join.

When I saw this thread yesterday I didn't expect so mamy peope would like to share their experienes...

So a few words from me:

I was probably one of the luckiest person - I was merited for my first ever "mature post"... with 4 merits when i saw it was shocked and even felt embarsed... I though that I didn't deserve so much merit for such post... so I decided to write something more and better... on the one hand to thank the guy who gave me merits (thanks again DarkStar_) on the other hand to fell myself better - put more effort and write something what prove myself I deserve those merits (this way was born: Short story about being merited…. )... stupid - isn't it?

However, since then I found this whole merit thing kind of fun and challege as well - so I agree that this system does encourages people for activity - just as myself.

Everyone wants to do the best for themselves, and of course the best is the human.
The same feeling is experienced by many people who get Merit,
But I assume that a person cannot judge himself for his daily actions as well as at the Forum, other people who judge the good or bad of the person.

Means:
"human beings are social beings who always need other people, therefore humans always need interaction with other human beings".

"Another thing with this, the intelligent person is far from the scene, but a foolish person only thinks about the needs of his stomach, if he is full he will not want anything else".

The very first merit experience on bitcointalk could be considered the online analogue for loosing one's virginity in real life. At least that's what it was for me  Grin I've actually checked my profile page 10x more often than usual that day, just to see that +merit message and it made my thing hard every time, lol  Cheesy That's even more interesting considering I've been lurking this forum for years without participating prior to registering an account, and when the merit was first introduced all I had was a brand new account with 0 posts&merits despite the fact that I've been a part of cryptoworld for a while. That time this whole new merit system seemed too flawed and quite unfair to me, almost to the point where I've thought it's stupid to enter bitcointalk as a poster at this time. But that first merit point feeling was well worth all the struggle. Even though the system is not flawless, now I can definitely say this feeling of accomplishment can stimulate you on personal level, which does good for forum as a whole. So you're not alone on this, OP, getting merit is hot&sexy in 2018!  Wink

I'm part of a movement to make the forums better.

I rode with joy when I received my first measure, in the summer, but I didn’t stop at the first, and was happy for everyone up to 12, it’s very nice when people rate your post as merit, it’s not some comment, as often happens with praise, but in order to gain the number of posts for a signature, this is something more, then some people hunt and do all sorts of nonsense, and I get it because my post just turned out to be useful for someone, that's really great.

When I saw this system, I was scared at first, but I thought it was all for the best. Therefore, when I had a week left before Sr. Member and I realized that I was given 100 merrit instead of 250 and I did not get 250 merit, it was very sad. If merrit appeared or was updated faster, it would be great, and it is impossible to move to another rank and I’m frustrated.

Since you are a Full Member, I looked at how many people have ranked-up starting at the same rank level. So far, there are 55 Full Members that have made it to Sr. Members needing merit in the process, and one additional case has made it to Hero (xtraelv). There are also another 11 that are nearly Sr. Members, and only lack activity to get there.
Fine, those numbers are not high, and likely the snail pace is rather slow overall, but those cases are rather diverse when you look at their profiles and posting history, making it a difficult quest, not an impossible one.

One of the keys is investing time. Coming from the old habits, where 30 seconds per post would let you move on with no further issue, you are now required to racket your brain and invest some time in the process, way more than before in general. That requires a change of habits, and frustration should not be on the agenda if you realize that and adapt.

I think you've misunderstood this topic - it's about feelings while you have "earn" merit yourself not when you've been airdropped a merit.

DdmrDdmr pointed out 67 people "similar to you" who already have or could have been promoted by getting enough merits.

I'll go further there are 225 people who have earned 150 and more merits (since the introducing of this system),
there are also:
167 peple who got 100-149 merits
545 people who got 50 - 99 merits
5237 peple who got 10 - 49 mertis
and 1656 peple who got 6 - 9 merits

You are complaing that you should be already senior member and you are frustrated...
On the one hand maybe You should be... but for another reason - there are 7830 people who have achieved more than you...

But don't worry! Look at the bright side of your situation: if the merit system has been introduced earlier with five merit you would not have even a Member rank today!
So smile man! It could be much worse...

Since I have not received any merit after joining this forum last year I don't know the feeling but I think I can feel proud of myself and it can make a great motivation for me to contribute more in this forum If I'm not busy in my offline job if I ever received this merit someday.

Alright I’ll admit it too....when I come onto btctalk.org I click ‘Profile’ & check if I’ve received any Merit. I do feel kinda good when I receive some if I’m honest. Having a bit of a dry spell at the moment, I don’t seem to be getting as much as I used to. I still try my best to be helpful & make good posts though.

I have joined this forum with no act of violating the rules and I was demoted from junior member, because of no merit. I really like this platform because I have learnt a lot about cryptocurrency and helping us earn through activities in projects.
I really want to keep being in this platform. And I have good understanding in cryptocurrency trading.

I really want to keep being in this platform.

And being a newbie doesn't hinder your ability to be part of this platform in any way shape or form. Unfortunately for you, having a post history that consists entirely of listing your spammy advertising posts on other platforms is not merit worthy. Not violating the rules is the bare minimum standard and again, not merit worthy.

If you want to rank up, then you need to drastically change your posting behaviour.
