People must really like you. That is, unless it is broken.

WHAT? PLease dont give me karma unless I did somethin that deserves karma!!!! If you do that, the karma system has no meaning!

Jan 03, 2010 at 06:32PM EST

But still, DANG MAN. What’s happened?
At least its a good thing…

I like you, cel-chan. :)

But 108 thumbs up is ALOT of karma. You must be doing something right.

I noticed… I can add karma to a single person per post. I think thats kinda bugged.

Jan 03, 2010 at 09:31PM EST

I mean, yeah anything could happen. animecello’s karma shot up by 90 in one day. One day.
Griff has 1500 posts. Zombie could bump it up to 1500. If a squad came it could be >9000.
The karma system needs to be renovated or removed.

Good, point RG, but there is a way for karma to work. I was hoping for modeling after vBulletin.

I say 100 forum posts or more can use karma system. AND karma distribution is weighed by more posts.

Jan 03, 2010 at 10:01PM EST

200 posts is a good idea. The only problem with that is spammers will reach 200 in not time.

Jan 03, 2010 at 10:04PM EST

how about 200 forum posts and KYM member for 3 months

Jan 03, 2010 at 10:11PM EST

Any maybe admins could grant and revoke the privilege?

Jan 03, 2010 at 10:26PM EST

I haven’t seen animecello’s go up much lately. Maybe the antics are over for now.
But, yeah, we can do better.

The primary goals of the (current) karma system:

- negative karma => hide bad/off-topic/bullying posts
- numerous upvotes on one post => some kind of “top 5 posts of the month” award

Someone having “tons of karma” due to a lot of +1’s or +2’s doesn’t actually do anything

If this “apparent karma” is distracting, it might be removed, the same way an overall contribution # was.

If a post is hidden due to low karma, can the admins make a option so that for enyone who wants to see the comment, they can click a ‘show comment’ button (like spam on youtube)?

IDEA: Karma Credits? Each post you post gives you a credit, which you can then use to bump someone’s Karma?

Or maybe we’re a mature enough community to not spam.

Jan 04, 2010 at 07:14AM EST

Yeah, I’m actually somewhat curious about what has been hidden.

Jan 04, 2010 at 01:12PM EST

im not sure if this blog-style karma system will work in a forum environment…

Also, were probably too nice to give negative karma.

Jan 04, 2010 at 01:35PM EST

I just realized what you said in that post.
But if someone spams 200 posts, they will get banned in little time.
