I also noticed most merit dont come from posting in a thread but from starting one. <…>
Perception does often lead to think that thread starters are more merited than responses within a thread, although that is likely different depending on the specific board you are on. I created a post some months ago (see Forum Merited Messages- Does size count?), and what can be derived from the information I gathered is as follows (see specifically section "4. Post Number" within the referenced thread- I’ve transformed numerical values into percentages to make the following clearer to read):

•   15% of merited posts were OP (thread starters).
•   33,16% of merited posts were amongst the first 10 posts in the page (OP included).
•   40,21% of merited posts were amongst the first 20 posts in the page (OP included).
•   13,86% of merited posts were between positions 21 and 100 on a thread.
•   45,93% of merited posts were on megathreads, on positions > 100.

Now the above should not be taken verbatim due to the following factors:

-   The stat was derived around the end of May 2018, so trends may well have shifted since then.
-   All merited forum section/subsections are aggregated as one. If we were to bring the information down to a board level (i.e. local boards, Bitcoin Discussion, Meta, etc.), I’m pretty sure there are big differences between them.

Unfortunately, interesting as it may, getting the data to update the analysis is rather painstaking, let alone deriving it for each board.

Really interesting!

Posts on megathreads are, in most cases, shitposts by bounty hunters or bots.

What can be considered informative and related to the discussion after having 100 replies (interactions)?

I think there where merit abusers are trying to hide their merit transactions. /this is the best explanation I can think of.

Waiting for updated stat though

Merited by khaled0111 (1)

<…>
There’s a bit of everything really. Merit abuse cover-ups (specially during the earlier Merit System months), decent threads that are over 5 pages long, etc. The above is likely rather skewed by megatopics such as:

Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion -> 16.226 Merits
Aнaлитикa, aнaлиз, пpoгнoзы -> 3.705 Merits
Merit & new rank requirements   -> 3.213 Merits (although a lot logically awarded to the OP)

That’s why I’d love to perform the analysis by board, since I figure there are large differences between them in relation to the position of merited posts but, for now, it will have to wait, at least on my behalf (my referenced analysis was the one I have spent more time on so far).

Nevertheless, what I wanted to point out is that OPs (thread starters) are merited often, but far from exclusively. What I did not check back then though, was the ratio of merit on merited OPs vs non-OPs. That I believe is rather favourable to OPs (i.e. thread starters often seem to get more merit than individual responses), but I’d need to back my perception/hunch with data to be blatant about it.

2- Don't post  China great wall text


Well have you seen some analysis from some reputable members that are very long but helpful and they get merited if you have a good contribution and it's long you can still drop it so far it's worth it.

You had just made so superficial method of making effectively articulated post.
I was just wondering if the whole issue of merit won't continue this year and let's just focus

1- Don't be a 1-liner shitposter

this is not Twitter, you will seem like a shitposter who is only posting to get paid for the signature campaign, even if there is nothing much to say , just type some bullshit to fill in your actual words.
I think newbies might take this serious and actually try to make long posts with out any point. They may create multiple-lined post but the quality will not be there hence they won't receive any merits at all. I've seen a lot of this lately where low ranking members try to create long posts yet they don't receive any merits. Simply typing some bullshit won't be enough to make them earn merits.

What I said in answering the first quote applies for this as well. The size or length of a post depends on the nature of the topic being discussed, and as long as your post makes some sense and is properly constructed, no matter how large it is but it would still get the attention it deserves.

in theory yes , in real world I am 100% that extra long posts get ignored by default, once i have the time I'l use piggy's data to determine post-words-count relation to merit " or i hope someone else can do it as i am kinda slow in this" 

and before that is done , i am willing to bet that the majority of merits go to "medium" length posts, too long or too short usually does not get merit, this of course changes in technical posts , but a general rule of life, nobody is willing to read long-ass posts.
