Admins of BTT, i'm requesting to become a legendary account. The merit system has failed, unless you're actively farming those merits on the Bitcoin sections specifically targeting the merit "whales," then reaching 500-1k merit is virtually impossible. I'm nearing 1k activity and before the grand shitcoin flood, that was sufficient enough to prove yourself to achieve that status.

I've served my time and assisted the Bitcointalk community immensely for the past 5 years, from my perspective/opinion. I've always stayed true to what these forums represent and the underlining ideologies that Bitcoin and blockchain was founded on.



Edit
: i exclusively post within altcoins and only altcoins. I've done so since the start, there are many reasons for this. There's a lot i've done for crypto since the end of 2013, ofc i'm not picture perfect, nor do i have posts that are significant in a broader perspective. But, I've done a considerable amount of good (again this is my perspective) and things that are lesser known that have ultimately improved the crypto sphere as a whole.


I'm not an avid Bitcoin poster, because it was (and still is) quite easy to understand Bitcoin, progress and etc. I read a lot of materials on these forums, but my value on Bitcoin is overshadowed by many of the older veterans of BTT. It's difficult to explain, but yeah. Take it or leave it, i appreciate the attention this thread received in minutes.

How is attaining 500-1k merit virtually impossible? Others have done it. I myself received 340 merits[1] in a decent timespan(I think) without trying super hard.

This dude, theyoungmillionaire[2], managed to earn 672 merits even though he's still just a Sr. Member and currently only has 308 activity points.

The problem is on you, not on the merit system.

You've also made double the posts, in 1/2 the time. Lets face it, if you're not activity seeking out merit, farming internet points, you are not going to obtain them. The system has come to a halt in many respects. I will not comment further on the failures of the system, as i've done so previously in a different thread a few months back.

You have to work for Merits in form of good posts and helping newbies or the Community !

Nothing is for free and you have to do it the same way as others have done or i am doing !

Get out of your BOX and dont be Lazy and try it to get some Merits but not in form like this thread to ask or beg for !

You got it all backwards.

Unless you actively shun the Bitcoin part of the forum, a poster of your quality (as far as I can tell) is very likely to make a couple hundred merit in no time.
Of course, if you always ever only post in the Altcoin section, you're highly likely to go unnoticed.
And that is just how it's meant to be.

This is Bitcointalk, after all.




I've served my time and assisted the Bitcointalk community immensely for the past 5 years, from my perspective/opinion.
The parts of your post history I can see (I have Altcoin-boards on ignore, and of course foreign boards where I don't speak the language) show you as a quality poster, and I've left some merit.
Unfortunately, there were only a handful posts I could actually review (and I've ignored posts from 2014).


I've always stayed true to what these forums represent and the underlining ideologies that Bitcoin and blockchain was founded on.
That's nice, but it doesn't actually tell us anything about your quality as a poster Wink

All free men, wherever they may live, can use Bitcoin, and, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words "Ich bin ein Bitcoiner!"

OP, it's not very likely Theymos is going to make an unprecedented exception for you.

I did take a quick look at your post history, and you must post a lot in sections I have on ignore because I could only see stuff you'd written in Meta.  Are you posting in sections like Bitcoin/Altcoin Discussion?  If so, you're never going to earn any merits no matter how good your posts are, because seconds after you write your masterpiece it's going to get buried under an avalanche of BS spam, which is the norm for those sections.

From what I did see, your posts aren't bad.  They're pretty well thought out, and you did earn some merits for them.  My guess is that your posts just aren't getting read by members with sMerits to spare.  If you tell me which sections you normally post in, I'll temporarily unblock them and take a look at some of your writing, maybe give you some merits if the posts are good enough.

Edit:
With all the boards I have on ignore on my phone, your post history shows 20 posts in 4 years.
I'll get you more stats when I'm at my desk.
That's exactly what's happening when I view his posts.  The only ones I can see are in Meta, and there's no way in hell I'm going to un-ignore any sections without knowing which ones he's posted in beforehand.

Your point being?

Lets face it, if you're not activity seeking out merit, farming internet points, you are not going to obtain them.
I've been posting here in the past and on the "other" bitcoin forum before the merit system and even before I joined and knew that signature campaigns existed; and that's not going to change. and no, you can even check my post history. I quite rarely post those topics and replies that are a few paragraphs long. You don't necessarily need to "seek out merit" to be eligible to receive them, you just need to be decently knowledgeable regarding bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

Lol what a coincidence, I notice you're more active on the alternative subsection and your post was among the 10 post I selected as a requirement for my merit source application with focus on the altcoin board as I notice allocation of merit is low there. I already merited the selected post and merit another just now. Don't have much smerits to reward the quality posters on the board that's why I'm applying so I get more smerits. Hopefully I'll be considered.

Anyway, good luck trying to get the attention of theymos and possibly ranking up to your desire rank.

It's easy to disprove ignorance once one digs deeper than the surface. Now, you've done some great work don't get me wrong, but the same comment i made above applies to you aswell.



After about 30s of digging into your profile, that's all it took to disprove you:

Please see my thread giving away merits and make a submission.

You can also post several posts of yours here that you put a lot of effort into over the years and perhaps some merit sources will be willing to give lots of merit for those posts. Each person can give up to 50 merit to you per month.

Theymos has previously said that if someone can show they deserve to rank up that merit sources should give up to the maximum merit to them allowing them to rank up.

What do you need the Legendary title for? It doesn't come with any special privileges. And you haven't even reached the upper bound of Legendary activity.

If it bothers you that much - report your posts here. Apply to become a merit source. Be part of a solution if you think there is a problem.

As others have said, there are no merits to be had in the Altcoin sections, since nobody serious about this forum (which is called Bitcoin Talk) wastes their time there. Really, the only reason we have those sections is to stop people from polluting the real boards with spam about their latest pet project (which, like most pets, often does little more than piss on the floor and eventually die and get replaced with something else).

Do something for your Merits you want  ! 

He's doing just that but getting unnoticed,  as the baords he's active in is on ignore by almost all reputed members and merit sources on the forum. Search through he's post history and you'll see that he deserve some credit might not be as much as ranking him up but he do deserve something.

Yes, the altcoin sections do not get a good deal of love. I think theymos should try to appoint one or two altcoin enthusiasts to be merit sources. The only problem is that many altcoin holders are only interested in a handful of coins. So it would be hard to pick someone who would do a good job distributing the merits throughout the altcoin board. Perhaps someone who is involved in mining or an exchange would be a good candidate. I was thinking someone like ocminer, but he hasn't given out a single merit to anybody.

It's the culmination of having a louder voice and being associated with being "trusted." This is explicitly and infinitely more noticeable in altcoins section, again, where i primary post. Hero is great and i do carry significant weight when calling out scams, or bullshit (there's an infinite amount of it in altcoins).

It's also something i always wanted to achieve on Bitcointalk, ever since the earlier days. I just feel like I've earned it, but again that's me who feels it, you don't have to necessarily agree with that. I understand it sounds like i want to be given something for free, but again, i truly feel like i've achieved it, even though it may not be immediately apparent or even noticeable.


I don't want to participate in being a merit source, because i never supported the system. Neither do i want you guys to look through my post and give me credit, please don't waste your time with that, i almost feel bad. I'm not here for merit.



But anyways, thank you all. I will take my leave, before this becomes a post where i'm refuting everyone's input/perspective and everyone is awarding me merit for my previous actions. That was not my intent or something i expected/understood.

*snip*

Your reasoning on why you wanted the legendary rank is very reasonable and understandable; and I'm not going to argue if you really deserve that rank or not. But regardless if you totally deserve that rank or not, we have rules and requirements to follow. And the requirements to have the legendary status, is to have between 775 and 1030 activity points. So we simply have to follow that whether we like it or not.
