Wow. I go to class for a couple of hours and everyone is bringing personal crap up on the forums.

Here is a suggestion: Don't air your dirty laundry on the internet. Any issues that are between you and who ever should remain on MSN and in PM's. Not on the forum so everyone can read.

My opinion is that this karma or kharma points is going to be a populairty vote but at this point who gives two shits? The Fashion Spot has suddenly become the play yard at the Day Care my sister works at, but there they know how to be NICE to each other.

So bottom line is this:
If you feel like rating people's post based on their thoughts and ideas do it. If you feel like rating SOMEONE based on what you like or don't like about them then do it. Everyone here is in their late teens and up, if you don't know how to act by now you will never learn.

This morning i didn't like the karma system but after reading all 4 pages of peoples discontent and personal issues, I dont care anymore.

So give me point or take them away. Give me power or take it away. Just quit the bitchin.

Okay. This is the last time I am going to say this so I hope you all pay attention.

Quit with the personal attacks. You say as a moderator to rise above, but you have a responsibility as a member not to hurl these attacks. In previous threads, the mod's were accused, rather harshly, of censorship. And now you say we should be disciplinary! Well choose one. If it is discipline you want, then it is discipline you will get because it appears that that is what this board needs. Karma didn't have to be a popularity contest if we didn't want it to be. And softie's age has nothing to do with anything. I've seen some very mature 15 year olds on here and some very immature late 20 year olds. It does not matter. We all should be mature. And I think that maybe this topic should be closed soon because it is only brining out the ill in all of us.

I've said my peace.

this topic has run its due course -and more-
it will be closed temporarily for everyone to cool out
and will open later on

excuse me for doing this, but i need to draw a line
one way or the other...
"peace" seems not to be enough,
i hope a closed topic will prove a more sufficient policy

lets leave this behind us

Question about Karma..
Not to start an arguement thread like yesterday. A simple answer will do and then lock the thread if you wish.

I now know how this sytem works but one thing remains a mystery to me.
The amount of POWER you have is how many points a day you may give or take away from a user for a post/thread.

What if your current power is 0? Can you still give and take away up to 10 points a day? And how does your power decrease? By recieving 100 disapprovals?

I had 2 Karma power yesterday and today I have none.

Please explain how exactly the power goes away and if someone with 0 power can still give points.

Thanks,
Baby J

I also have a little Q...I wanted to give someone some good karma just a minute ago, but then I noticed that the only option there was "i approve of this post" and that the "I disapprove..." was gone...I quadrupelchecked it and it isn't there.

Also something I'd like to know: i have 1 karma power as can be seen right beside my post, but when I click on my own 'Libra' it says that I have 20 karma points, could someone explain please

I have changed the karma system slightly to not allow negative karma. I will be updating post counts, adjusting the karma formula and then I will make a post that outlines all the details.

butterfly...use the little scale next to the green/blue dot below the avatar of the person who you wish to give karma to...
click on it and you will get a box that allows you to give karma..
.
fyi...mr dale and baby j...points and power are different...points are the karma that other people have given you so far...
power is how many points you may give to others...power is determined by a system that involves several factors and andy will clarify the power 'formula' shortly so that everyone will understand how their karma power is calculated...

hope that helps for now...have a good one...

click on the little scales in the middle of the left hand corner of a post you approve of. A pop up window will come up in the top left hand corner and you click on positive karma. You may leave a message if you like. Good luck.
