The +1 -1 Karma system

Is anybody even using it? The only pluses or minuses I see are the ones I’ve done.

I realized that the “+1” increases a poster’s karma.
Considering the amount of Karma I, Blubber and many others got, I think a lot of people are using it.

It’s strange that there aren’t floods, considering.
You think everybody would post on every thread to get lots of karma.
I’m just as active as usual, but everyone else’s activity is down.

That’s not a bad thing, If you ask me.

I agree, but I see too few posts now and too many trash entries.
Out of the 12 or so entries we get per day now, I’d say about 9 of them are instant deadpools.
Before this thread becomes about deadpool entries, I have to say “Don’t flood, but do post!”

I may have a question about the karma system nervetheless, and the +1/-1.
Is it a bad thing to gather more and more karma ?

Because mine is growing rather quickly…

It just means you’ve made a lot of good posts. It’s not a bad thing.

Good morning every one

I dont like the karma system someone could give you bad karma just because they dont like you but im sure evryone here is mature enough not to do that

I sometimes use it when I see very well thought out posts. I rank those posts up (I don’t like ranking people down). Most of the time though, I just ignore the system. Hope that doesn’t bother anyone.

@ Griff: I always thought you were kinda funny, minus all the combo breakers you do.

Jan 02, 2010 at 11:18PM EST

I think Griff is a pretty cool guy, eh says funny random stuff and aren’t afraid of anything.

Just control yourself and you’ll be fine.

I think CAMOAWAM is a pretty cool guy, eh trolls binaries and aren’t afraid of banning.

We don’t hate you. We just think you tend to take things too far.

Haha, I know I wont get very high karma.

Im like that old man that sits on his porch and yells at those god-damn hippie kids who never get off my lawn and then I call their parents but their mom thinks that they’re perfect little angels so I tell them that if they get on my damn lawn again I’ll get my .22 so she calls the police on me but they cant do crap because I’m 80 and slightly senile.

Yeah, I’m that guy on KYM.

Plus, I’m certain that a few permanent trolls (not naming anyone wink wink) would love to mess with my karma.

I don’t think you’re Clint Eastwood from the “Gran Turino” movie.
Enjoy your juvenile youth.

My grandson is actually typing this all for me.

Damn devil-box…

ahh, why is he helping you when he could be playing kick-the-can, or hop-scotch?? those kids today…

Or ball in a cup.

You see, it’s fun, because the ball is attached to the cup by a string at the bottom of the cup. So even if the ball doesn’t go in the cup, you cant lose the ball, and can try again to get the ball in the cup.

Sounds like those people have about as much imagination as thepeople who made games for the Atari 2600.
