Wow, I guess you've got that Speculation section covered.  And that prediction thread in particular, but a lot of those posts are kinda garbage IMO.  What's the deal with that thread and you giving all your sMerits out there?

LOL.  There are many strange birds in the forest, and there is room for all of them.  Didn't know you were a merit source, but pleasure to meet you, sir/madam.

*edit PS* in that thread you linked a forum member is giving away free BTC to someone. From their own stash.

Doesn't he at least deserve some manners for each forum meber piling in for free BTC ?

?

Yes.  Smiley

That's not really how it works. I'd suggest you revise your thread before someone considers it as merit begging.

Strike me down then god.


Let it be so, Theymos didn't build this forum for this.


I rewarded people from small to big who said thankyou. That's exactly merit.


Duh!


No begging, sources is a thing.

Well I did the same thing in Meta, but it was directed to Theymos--and it was sMerits I wanted, not merits (though some members were kind enough to merit my OP).  This OP looks to be asking the same here, or at least that's how I saw it initially.

Edit:
I can't see this post deserve 2 merit at any angle.
I tend to agree with you there, because if shitposters see merits being given out so freely in a certain thread, guess what happens?  Yeah, they flock there to scoop them up.  I think there were some people following QuestionAuthority around due to his generosity in the sections and threads he frequented.  But whatever, it's Theymos's call on this one.

I didn't bothered about your previous sent merit history. I just checked today history that you sent merit. Can you explain that below quote how deserve 2 merit ? How you consider Quality good post ?

The price I predict at 0:00 CET march 31 will be......$2723.  Cry
Thanks

Thanks Mic! $3200
Sorry, bearish feeling still

Thanks Mic, I'm going 3750

I’m gonna go with $4078. Thanks MicG.

$5286

Yes, I think it's gonna be this!

Merci, Mic

And so on.....

I can't see this post deserve 2 merit at any angle. Theymos encourage to send merit on good post at least. Not on worst post. I have doubed theymos will increase your monthly budgets, or he will remove from merit source if he check your sent merit history.


I set 2 as uses manners, it was a bit tough sometimes.

Doesn't matter what you set your manners, matter is quality of post. Suchmoon set his manners on 7 but he never spend his smerit on shitpost like you are doing.

It's not generic medicine that you are distributing. It's smerit and limited as well.

I'm just saying... if you're a source you probably should make that clear so people don't think you're begging for merits for yourself.

Well I did the same thing in Meta

I could at least understand your post. The OP looks drunk at best.

I have remember,  LoyceV was mentioned on reputation and I had pointed on his giveaway thread. In a result I was hardly attacked by his fan. Never mind if merit sources spend his merit before end of time fram. But it doesn't mean they should spend on shitpost as well there is lot of good post.

I understand what you did there even if it may be questionable for some. Thanks for your act of kindness and generosity on Mic's thread!

P.S.: For whoever that doesn't get it... I would guess he was somehow moved by the generosity of Mic (which he has repeteadly demonstrated) and decided to contribute to the positivity in the way he could. Without expecting absolutely anything in return.

I also think it like how bitserve is saying it, for all the rest IMO Globb0 never sended merits to scammers, or people with bad intentions (as so far we can see.....)
all to dedicated people, a merit source as Globb0 even gives MERIT to people that are not the most genius thinkers and people that can express BTC, and how it works as many different smart guys on the forum, but he's also a guy that sees some proper good humor, good character in people, people that are in the forum with the best intentions toward BTC, and are just here to learn and get in the mix how they can, BTC-community is build on very smart people, but not all are andreas kind of thinkers or not every body has the computer skills to create amazing shit on the forum.... cause also MANY MANY MANY merit are being shared for yet another "look what I create to follow merit movements, or statistics or who's catching who etc", as there are also being send very much other pointless merits around, I think if Globb0 send a few MERIT to mostly people of the forum "cause it takes a minimum of 10 merit to participate @games...to exclude NEWBIE's etc)
so I can follow if he shared merit for a reason of politeness .... and getting dried up NOW just sucks cause his work isn't finished Roll Eyes
I also understand i am not the always 100% best poster, but toward BTC and people of the community my actions or willings or just someway of trying to contribute something to the forum as well

again THX Globb0 for showing people that being polite is an important manner of being on a forum, and that those things can get rewarded from time to time (think I also read that in another thread down her somewhere..... be polite toward other members etc)

hope you get some generosity as well Smiley
I haven't more left anymore Roll Eyes

Anyone can send merit to whoever they like, why we need to justify if we give people merit. I think people should be more generous and not so greedy over stupid merit points. I think the OP has a good positive mindet, we need it more here Smiley
I agree with you, but there's limits.  If we have a merit source who's giving merits to shitposts, then the system becomes a little more useless.  If all merit sources did this, the system would be completely useless.  The whole reason we have the merit system is to suppress shitposters from ranking up, so if sources just give them out with no consideration to how good the post is....what's the point?

The OP looks drunk at best.
Maybe that's the reason.  I haven't looked at his meriting history, but he got selected to be a merit source and therefore I have to assume he earned that position and doesn't make this a habit.  Hopefully.

Edit:
then why would it be so wrong?
It's not unless it's a pattern of rewarding shitposters, which I don't see here.  If I thought OP was abusing the merit system, my posts would be quite different.  In my mind I picture him as a hooka pipe-smoking hippie spreading free love around as if it were the 1960s.  As I said, if he got made a merit source in the first place he's probably not a serial merit mis-user.  True, we've had a couple of those but Theymos picks them pretty well.

You don't have to be a genius thinker or even that good at writing to be rewarded merit. Yet what Globb0 has done is give merit for a lot of low content posts. I'm not sure if I agree with the way he is rewarding people with merit which should be hard to get and only for those which are good at posting. The speculation  board is a shitfest at the best of times but now that this is public information and has been exposed on a board such as meta which is far more frequently visited a lot of people will be going to post on the speculation board thinking that they can earn merit for shit posts because that's what Globb0 has been rewarding. Thank you posts with a prediction should never be given merit but I'm not a merit source for a reason I guess. I like to reward those that put time and effort into their posts.

If I had to guess I would say it is something Globb0 decided to do as a once time. It is obvious that if he did it routinely all shitposters would pile around him to get something.

Globb0 may be a kind person, but he is not stupid. At all.

last 1 send out Roll Eyes

not stupid for sure, but all have had there moment of generosity, he divide it under more members, instead of giving 50 to a random post as happened as well, if it is toward polite people and somewhat "true forum members" then why would it be so wrong?

In my opinion I don't think merits should be generously handed out, as it has nothing to do with a "free will gift",it's a "gift" that should be earned,giving out merits freely just for the sake of generosity shouldn't be acceptable as in no time we'll end up ranking up users who shouldn't in anyway rank up
if it is toward polite people and somewhat "true forum members" then why would it be so wrong?
So users would use "sir","ma" etc Indiscriminately all in the name of being polite could rank up huh,without actually doing anything?,hell no!
