I think that some people on here take the whole karma thing too seriously, esspecialy when negitive karma is given. Overall, I think we would all be better off with out it, as to not make certian folks jelous or mad, but I will admit, sometimes when I log on and I see that my karma has gone up, I feel like one of the cool kidz.

As for giving negitive karma, I think ive only given it once or twice, and those were for comments that seemed to take a hit at another poster. Its the INTERNET, boys and girls. Half of the folks on here are probobly just commputer A.I. anyway. So lets just CHILL, alright?

I only give positive karma and rarely give it at all but sometimes guys or gals will post something so fascinating to me personally or just so ultimately creative or appealing that I feel I must give out karma. RCMerchant, Raffine, allhallowsday and Menard have gotten the most positive karma from me. There's been a few others too...I believe Poogie, venomx and perhaps a few more.  But I don't overuse the button, at least I don't think I do.

I'm going to take a dissenting view.  I am not as active a member on this board as others, so I've never really noticed my karma rating other than a quick, "huh".

I love feedback as much as the next person.  After something I view as a substantial post, I'll check back several times that day to see if anybody has responded.  But I think the near arbitrary karma rating may be taken too importantly.  It's a goof, right?  Just a fun little statistic?

What I've always valued about this board is the environment where people are can freely discuss, and if necessary disagree on, their opinions about movies others may not give a second thought about.  In fact, I think it is very impressive that this board remains so cordial, because I don't know if you've noticed, but cult movies like this tend to attract very strict adherents.

It's the same reason I don't patronize popular critics.  I don't care about ratings, I care about the discussion.

Once again, I love the "karma boost" as much as the next person.  But I think we've been doing it very well by respecting each other within our posts.  The nigh-unto arbitrary number underneath our profile seems superfluous and maybe even distracting.  I think what was meant to be a fun diversion may be approaching a reward/punishment system.  We're all adults here, let's talk.

Some of us cannot afford to take karma too seriously.   TongueOut

I will admit that I have looked at a poster's karma when I do not recognize the name, or when they are newer, and used it as some sort of measure of approval (presumably on the part of the more active established members).  They must be doing something right - right?

Aside from a niggling feeling that I had better do something about my post/karma ratio, my low karma keeps me humble - and lurking.  (Which of course IS counter-productive.  Lookingup )

I think the Karma Point Idea you have Andrew is a good thing all the way.  Thumbup ... karma for you, Sir because of it.
Its just like a digital pat on the back like someone said.

somebody, help out a noob please. Where are these "applaud" & "boo/hiss" icons you speak of? I'm not seeing them. Is there some setting I need to change, or am I just not looking in the right place?

Oh, and I vote for having some sort of comments with the karma, or at least an indication of what post it was for.. I just got my first one, which is what prompted this query, and I don't know why (but I do appreciate it, whoever you were!)

The applaud and boo/hiss will only appear under the names of other posters.  You cannot see them for yourself.

The Karma function mod still has not been updated for SMF, so it has not been installed.  Months ago, the creator said it would be updated in a few days.  I check every week or so and still no dice.

I know, but I don't see it on the other's posts either. You say it should be underneath their name? What does it look like? Sorry to be a pest but it just bugs me that I can't find it.. y'know, in case I ever want to give karma. Hey, it could happen.

My apologies.  I was not paying attention.  To prevent simple abuse by phantoms, I put a rule in place that someone requires a certain number of posts before they can leave karma.  It is not terribly high, being just 10.
