Seriously? I hope this irrational judgement isn't a reflection of the rest of the community here. They (singular) posted nowhere about giveaways, or signups to giveaways, instead they posted twice in 2018 before returning. Firstly asking how to securely store digital coins. Here is their first post, since it seems you presumably didn't even bother to check their post history.

The second post was thanking a user for a useful answer to their question. Their 3rd and 4th posts are in this thread. Why so judgemental?
It looks like you're simply insulting a hodler to me, not a shitposter.


I know I sometimes take a bit of a draconian approach to some posts (not neccesarily newbies), but that does mean not that it's an irrational judgement, as you say. In my case, it comes from my own past with the forum: I came here for the money; but stayed for the technology. During that time of mine where I was only interested in making some quick cash (I believe my first 3/7 pages on post history), but as time has gone on, I have even been embarrased because of that (not that it matters, since it's the past. I have seen what people doing stuff just for money make to the forum, mostly because I've been there, done that.

Yes, I did check the post history, and BPIP; and I saw an old account, that woke up un February 2019, and has ever since made 4 posts. Half of those, are on a thread on how to earn merit; which in my oppinion, if the user had browsed the forum and read the stickies, s/he would know how activity and merit system work. There could still be some doubt though; as with the activity update periods (took me a long while to understand them) or any other stuff, but asking "How can I get Merit?" looks like a very poor interest on the forum itself (ignoring stickies).

I see your point, I and I agree with it; there is a long road between welcoming newbies and paving the way for spammers.


I`ll give you another merit if you move this post to meta discussion because that is where it belongs. (bottom left of page)
I can see exactly why they might of posted in Beginners section: to avoid any hostility from the meta section.

Agreed, I rarely surf B&H section; and when I see a thread with a title being so obvious and with an answer that has been said thousands of times; I simply ignore it (maybe not the best course of action, but people please do a bit of research). I was just surprised to see this question in meta, and I guess I snapped a bit. This time it was me; but it could've been another user.

How to get a merit easily?

Start a topic in Meta or anywhere else, asking about how to get merit and you'll surely get at least one merit but depends on your luck and other factors, even more...
So you can start to take part in bounty campaings quickly after...

Kidding of course...

EDIT:
IMHO the topic is lockable, OP has got the answer to the question (and the merit too Cheesy )
