I could see this causing a ton of cat fights.

The favoritism between certain people on the site is remarkable. Also, with this karma thing, all it takes is one over zealous moderator to disagree with a regular memeber and all their points are gone.

Can't wait to see how this fold out

I'm not sure I am liking this new Karma thing because like some one else above mentioned there is a lot of favoritism here. People will agree with a certain person because they have been here longer and are "wiser".

Will you know who gave your or took away your Karma points? What if someone is having a bad day and just disagrees with everyone and goes on a rampage? I don't really like this system because in my opinion you are just fueling the favoritism between people.

How come I already have Karma points? Because I've been here a year? or because of my post count?

This is so confusing?

Can I give myself karma points to boost my ego?

Ivy,

You have no idea how many people will probably end up doing something of that sort! Colour me stupid but I don't even know how to give or take away points!

Use the little gray scale above each post.
Also, not that I'm complaining here, but couldn't this end up as a popularity contest?

I think it will be fun. Let's just see how it goes for awhile.

That is what I am doing, naturally. However, some others might not be quite as honest?

I really like the idea. Let's take it for a test drive and see how it works and just enjoy it.
