I just did.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;u=194811

I have opened two windows to send merit and when I hit the second one, I merit two times.
This could be the best sacrifice of merits to upgrade the merit system. Great work bro! Wink

I was taking a look into this too. Since there was a 1 second gap in the @OgNasty -> @seoincorporation example in the OP

I was on my mobile and when I tapped the button to submit merit, it registered as a double tap submitting twice. Nobody asked but figured I’d explain anyway.

Alright, you now can't merit the same post with the same amount within 60 seconds.
Different amounts still work, I'm fine with this workaround to protect users against their double click habits Smiley

OK, now it should be impossible no matter how much you try.

Yes, now working fine. I just tried to merit you with different 2 window but it's not possible now. I think now merit abuser can't excuse that I have sent by mistake. I have remembered few abuser excuse like this.

Doesn't matter if different amount, because amount different means you are fully aware that you are going to send another amount of merit to same post.

Since this is a bug, is this double click double merit thing only works if you have enough spendable merit? I mean If I have one spendable merit, then this won't work on me right?

Thanks for your reply and for fixing the bug. Isn't a real destructive bug, but 301 non-intentional sent sMerits is something since merits are an unreversible action.

And want to thanks the community too, thanks guys for your help to solve this issue, not let's enjoy the last weekend of the year.  Wink

No, with one merit shouldn't work.

I was taking a look into this too. Since there was a 1 second gap in the @OgNasty -> @seoincorporation example in the OP, grouping by exact time would not catch these cases, so I went on to giving a 2 second margin (searching for all TXs within a 2 second gap with the same implied users and message and date).

I make it 317 TXs historically by the above criteria (see https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JmMF_SZX0oWgK8L2BL-lkB0aDMAIW7HB2OWJKXxtrag/edit?usp=sharing), with 155 different real intended TX sends (the others are side effects of double or triple clicking the send button).

No too many cases, and roughly let’s say half of the implied sMerits being non-intentional (602 sMerits -> would mean 301 non-intentional sent sMerits historically).

So there is no really bug with the merit system and it shows probably the slow internet connection which could not load up to the next page after sending the merit or pressing the send button. It is a due negligence of the user on how careful he was in sending the merit.

Well the bug is no longer an issue, and has run the full software development cycle in a short amount of time: reported, measure of impact, resolved and rolled-out, tested, twitched and rolled-out, re-tested, verified and settled.

Note: I looked through the list of cases I compiled with the 317 TXs (out of which half were likely due to the double/triple click ex-bug effect), and found no obvious case of the scenario you hypothesize (all lower ranked cases involved as Senders had enough sMerits to cover the double send at the time, and higher-ranked are more likely due to airdropped sMerit).

<…>
I wouldn’t really call it a user negligence … anyway, it was a minor incident that has been fixed or software-shaped to be avoided.

Can there be some relaxation in this Merit System? It don't allow the members to grow in ranks now. I mean my account is stuck at member since the introduction of this system and i think that is the case with alot of other people.

Well, to become Full Member you need at least 100 merits, for more information take a look to:

FAQ: Everything you need to know about forum 'activity, account ranks and merit
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2766177.0

To get those 90 merits you will have to post some good quality stuff. Good luck.

I guess no one has shown the image that appears. So just to show that the system seems to be working very well, avoiding double spending and Merits inflation. Cheesy

You are a nice case study for the improvements made by theymos weeks ago.
After the improvements, meriters can not send their sMerits to the same posts with same amount of sMerits when they double click in the duration of 60 seconds.
Alright, you now can't merit the same post with the same amount within 60 seconds.
