If you write down a well planned long comment on a game, you recieve a Merit which gets you a great 25 points

When a Mod sees it.But it is better to post on new games,Mods check them more often.

Maybe these mods ignore some good comments or maybe they don't see them at all.

With over 1000 games to hunt through, we don't always find every merit worthy comment. But yes, a merit is awarded for a great review of a game that is well written and thought out.

Well it does not have to be really long. I have seen ones that are only like 8 sentences.

yes, they dont have to be long, but the have to be constructive, and give your opinion of the game. they also have to make sense, and have good grammar.

Those were probably before the heightened merit standards -- but yeah, merits don't need to be long. As long it's constructed and written well, that's all that counts.

merits are things that you get for doing puncation and a long report on any game.

I got a merit for a comment that was less then 5 sentences long and got a merit for it after the hightened merit standards.So I think its more about the content then how long it is,but it being longer helps people notice it,and vote it up.Anyways for detailed info on merits(along with mods) refer to this page.

Merits are well constructed comments left in games describing in detail the goo,bad,graphics,music,etc. of the game.Needs great grammar and a good length.Need to say what you think personally and what it needs.

One more thing.Merits are bold and sometimes very long.Not all need to be long but need to be organized.

I think that merits should be given out more and easier to get.
