On January 24, 2018, the merit system was introduced on the forum.

The first merit was sent by theymos to AdolfinWolf at 10:12:21 PM
for the post in the thread What is the function of the "Merit" score?

This is a merit transfer transaction:
Code:
1516831941 1 2818066.msg28853325 35 877396

In my opinion, the merit system was a salvation for the forum. At this time many account farmers were posting garbage in order to increase activity and rank up their alt accounts. The administrator found an excellent solution.

Undoubtedly, the merit system has reached its goal. Nowadays only members who make useful posts, create interesting threads and contribute to the forum successfully rank up to higher positions. Since all merit transfer transactions are public and transparent, a lot of account farmers and merit sellers were spotted and red tagged by trusted members.

Thank you @theymos, and happy birthday, the merit system! Smiley

It was nice being part of this system, and proved to myself that this isn't a hindrance for me to rank up Smiley

Cheers Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday merits - I didn't realise that the genesis merit was laid so long ago.  Since then we have seen to introduction of the HalfWit blocks - the half witted sig spammers are finding that the lack of merit is blocking their promotion. We've also seen a couple of halvings as the initial merit shower is being reduced. There have also been some new wallets as the merit sources increase. The mempool for the merit beggars listing their posts in the donation threads seems to have reduced dramatically, and I think this is good. The addition of the extra merit sources, especially in the local boards, has improved the decentralisation.

The creation of merit whales with over 1,000 earned merits, has given the legendaries with IMO merits a target to help them to improve their posting.

I've added a photography section to Fit to Talk -  The photography and content production board

Hopefully we can use this to help members earn from using budget photo kit whilst they practice their English

Nice, for this one year I manged to rank up twice  Grin
It was controversial in the begging but it seems that it does this for what it was designed for, to stop the new spammers from ranking up.

It was a good move, hope to see more good moves from theymos.

Happy birthday Smiley

we both did it... but I've even thought three times... think we got the most out of it Grin
but it was already connected with a lot of effort compared to users who have been there a little longer.

and all the best to the system that gave me some sleepless nights Grin

Happy birthday to merit,
Especially thanks to theymos implement merit system. Its was a good step to reduce spam from forum. Although we are not yet achieve the goal but very near of the goal. I have joined forum after the merit system and achieved up to Sr. Member and I believe I can reach the next rank. I believe community got few good things from merit system.
1. Reduce spam from forum.
2. Motivate user to make quality post.
3. Reduce account farming.
4. Got lot of useful topics due merit system. Merit encourage to make useful and suggestional topic.
5. Merit determine user standard.

I believe we will achieve merit goal once a day.

While much of this place might still seem to be a spam/scamfest in many ways, I shudder to think of what it would be without the Merit system.

I've given you a red tag for making a post that was just a quote of the opening post, and not adding any comment at all.
If you feel that this is unreasonable, and you have stopped doing it, then please appeal against it through my ticket system.

I can't say I was paying much attention to this anniversary.

Its been a nice improvement overall.  I agree one of the best side benefits i hadn't thought of before us how easily it tipped people off to alt accounts and account farmers, trying to game the system.

Ill never forget the day it took its first stood up from a crawl and wiped out an impressive amount if shitposters with the 1 merit requirement. Now if we could bump that up it would be great.

The introduction of the merit system and The new rule (1 Merit for Jr. Member) is already reducing spam had a positive impact on the forum. Let the changed trust system change bitcointalk for the better.

I think that the demotion option might be a good one.
It's hard to accept for them but why not implementing demotions?
The creation of merit whales with over 1,000 earned merits, has given the legendaries with IMO merits a target to help them to improve their posting.


I am not sure who is the first merit source, but Lutpin is the one I saw his merits increased significantly during early days after the merit system born.
The first one commented after merit system ANN published.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2818350.msg28856606#msg28856606
He is a good candidate of the first merit source.
And maybe Happy Birthday for the first Merit Sources too , dont know if they was born on this day also !

January 24th 2018 - the day when thousands of lifes were ruined Cheesy
Maybe it's time to remove all airdropped Merits? There are thousands of Full, Senior or Hero members who haven't managed to earn even 1 Merit. But they still can use all privilleges of their rank and continue spamming without thinking about quality of their posts
The introduction of the merit system and The new rule (1 Merit for Jr. Member) is already reducing spam had a positive impact on the forum. Let the changed trust system change bitcointalk for the better.
I don't think that decreasing number of posts made are caused only by Merit system. It's also directly related to Bitcoin price. I remember someone even made chart where we can see relation between Bitcoin price and number of posts made on Bitcointalk.

Sure, when bitcoin rises and hits its new all time high next years, they will come back, and a new massive wave of spambies will occur.

Ill never forget the day it took its first stood up from a crawl and wiped out an impressive amount if shitposters with the 1 merit requirement. Now if we could bump that up it would be great.

I think that's the next step. Upping it from 1 to 3-5 as a minimum would be the fatal blow to many dunderhead dreams. That's achievable but takes out the fluke factor completely. You'll actually have to be vaguely useful.

I've been advocating for this for a while, but 3-5 is still too low in my opinion. I think a 10 merit minimum is the way to go. 1 (and probably 3) is too easy to beg, buy or trade for, and with the number of airdropped sMerits still waiting to be used, we will be seeing plenty of 1 merit spammers for a long time yet.

I also think changing it from 10 total merit to 10 earned merit would also be a good step. There are plenty of spammers in more senior ranks too. If you haven't been able to earn 10 merit in the space of a year, then you are almost certainly a spammer.
