Bet all the bitcoin you got on it if you dare.

Fuck no!  I'm sure you're right, I was just impressed by your mastery of the Jedi mind trick.

OK, this is strange. I do not expect stuff like this from the oldest member of the forum. I do respect Vod but Seriously what the hell is this. there are a lot of people who are making many many helpful posts and you are just giving away 46 merits like it was charity.
Maybe he sees that post "constructive" so he gave him that number of merits Smiley

What's the reason of creating this thread. As long as you share the merits to other people it doesn't matter. I don't think there is a in abuse here and if there are, for sure theymos will handle it.

Lets just move on with what happened.  Grin

I would merit any post compiling the multiple baseless threads QS has started against me over the years...  that would be a very worthy post.  Smiley

Let me tell you the fact that we all will miss Vod so much if some day he left the forum, or he decide to shut down the BPIP site. Please tell me the truth that you agree or disagree?
In addition, there are so many merit source application that received 50 merits from a single user at once. I don't think that such 50 merits to merit source application's OP is merit abusements. Despite of the fact that if the same user does not create a merit source application, but only post a normal post which contains same 10 links to ten helpful topics/ posts that he or she present in merit source application, he or she probably does not receive 50 merits from a single user at once. Do you call this act as merit abusement? I don't think so.

Consequently, there is nothing wrong if Vod thought that a post really contributes to the forum, from his perspective. You can not judge from your perspective that Vod giving merits because he simply agrees with a post. Maybe he think that such post actually contributes something to the forum. Moreover, if theymos thinks that something wrong, he might step in (as he did in the past with other merit soures), and revert wrong sent-merits.

Importantly! It is right time to cool down.
{a} TIME TO COOL DOWN
The key is don't hurry, don't angry too much. You need time to cool down, accept your mistakes (if you did); and DT members need time to cool down, and accept their mistakes (if they did).
Everything, and everyone have specific thresholds, beyond which will cause irreversible things. Over reacts will lead to being ignored (by Ignore buttons), and when it happens, no chance to see your negative feedbacks removed.

Maybe you are right at the fist place, but when you fall into angry, attack & trolling all, escalate things into 'Wars', you actually make real mistakes. Please don't do this.

Accept & admit your mistakes, make positively changes won't help you solve issues immediately or in short term. Because basic instinct of each person can not be changed within hours, days, months. So, your Trust Appeals take months or years to be solved (in case you actually did something wrong).

Length != usefulness.  

Quoting for future use when I need to prove that others agree with me to my wife.

Dirty jokes aside, perhaps the fix to this problem is to allow merit sources to pick whether to use their forum given merits or earned smerits? I ran into this problem when playing around with the April fools thread. I had kind of forgotten that I need to drain my forum given merits before I'm free to do what I want with my other 400 earned smerits that I should be free to waste however I want.

I would be happy to have the same problems when I don't know where to load sMerits but I'm always out of them. I don't think it's a problem if a post gets a high number of Merits. Sometimes many good posts are being left unmerited and then it's just a compensation if another posts gets more than usually. And as another positive outcome the merited people are getting more sMerit.

When the Merit system was introduced it was quite common to spend large sums so I don't see it as a problem now. Otherwise, theymos would have lowered the maximum of 50 Merit per account / month.

On the same thread you got more than 10 merit for  only 2 words post.

I don't see a lot of difference.

Many other members do the same thing, but your personal problems with him is the only reason you started this topic. I am not saying what vod did is right or wrong, just stating the obvious.

I can't control what other people do, and the post was objectively funny.

The post I received merit on also was not taking anyone's side.

Vod's recent merit history is him giving merit in exchange for support.

If you really believe so, then stop fighting it, let everyone do whatever they want, report those posts and let the mods decide, why start a whole thread and make things even worse?

Isn't this what we all do? Theories aside, reality states that we always tend to merit good posts that make sense to us, or that we found funny as you stated.

Anyway, i think you and Vod should take it easy, this is getting boring.

I don't think the posts are off topic. I think the posts are not 50-merit worthy, and probably not merit worthy at all.

Merit should be given to posts that are objectively high quality, or types of posts that we as a forum want more of.

Others in this thread believe Vod was intentionally acting out in an effort to get fired from being a merit source.

The feels right now just like this

Play A Song: SAD

I hope Vod just retired from Merit Source & DT not from Bitcointalk too, was a great day we have Reputable Member. I think this kind of drama will be ended after theymos remove Vod as a merit source & DT it's already gone too far. Then he just focused too develop BPIP and contribute to the forum as he usually does.

It's the way decentralised forum works, with two-tailed effects, negative and positive, but I said with such decision of Vod, and Hhampuz. There are three DT1 members publicly stated that they wanted to be removed from DT1 member lists recent months (after malboroza).

There are so many users waited for months with their merit source applications, both real ones and fake ones (fake ones mean someones made fake merit source applications in order to get merits); so you actually give them hope.
I wish you all the best after DT1-member retirement, but I actually hope that you won't shut the BPIP site down.

Actually, it is much easier to head over to the WO thread and post something really bullish about BTC.  Wink They have drama there too, but it has little to do with forum politics. You may even get merit for posting what you are having for dinner.  Smiley Memes of bitcoin guy, rocket ships, swimsuit models, green dildos and burning trains can get you bonus merits.  Smiley

@theymos, why not remove the Merit system, give a new frame that can be fun.

Lol, like what, post likes Grin? No matter what theymos does, he still can't keep everyone happy as there will still be forum members that'll have one or two things to say about the new system you speak off. We're already getting used to the merit system, so changing it won't be the right step Instead, improving on the system will do the trick. For starters, merit sources should be given the option to choose between sending their earned smerit or allocated smerits. That why they won't have to exaust their allocations before they can play with their earned smerits.
