I find it funny that this got out of hand with in the first 2 minutes!

Purple went from 7 to 0
Softgrey went from 8 to 6

How is that even possible?

Quotes from an article about a Chinease prison camp, for Tibetans. Will I be losing my points for this?

Quote:
The “hundred points system”

In theory, all prisoners had the same right to gain ‘credit points’, but in practice political prisoners were seldom given the points they had earned. Moreover, out of the 100 points, three were given for possessing the “right” way of thinking. As the political prisoners did not, by definition, have the “right” way of thinking, it was almost impossible for them to get the full 100 points.

Those prisoners who managed to get 100 points in six months and another 100 points in the next six months had the chance to win a prize. Every two or three months the scores were announced publicly and if points had been deducted from anyone the reasons were explained. In this way prisoners were continuously prompted to think about their targets and their behaviour.

Apart from credit points for work quota and “correct” behaviour, there were also credit points for cleanliness. If you give information about other prisoners to a prison official or denounce the Dalai Lama or foreigners you may be rewarded with some points. If you react very quickly and obey very strictly, you might be also be given a few points. If you keep quiet during the “re-education” classes, the officials assume that you agree with the “lesson”. If you show some reluctance in obeying orders, the officials will deduct points.

It would be great if there was a kind of "karma gauge" so we could keep track of our 10 transactions per 24 hr period. Maybe it could be part of the popup where posts are approved/disapproved? What do you all think?

I'd like it gone... the sooner the better. I don't see the fun in rating members' worth; not to mention the fact that this is a silly and neurotic distraction.

You've already used up all your Karma power today?!

It has't even been up for more than 4 hours

I suspect my last couple of posts did the trick.

I think it's kind of silly and distractive. I just want to discuss fashion. All these new options are an overload. More is not better. Anyway, maybe it's just me, but I like the clean, non-distractive look of things.

hmm I'm confused. Did you loose power because people took your points away or because you already distributed you 7 points?

ANDY, what is the difference between "karma power" and "points"?

OMG guys,

This karma system has to do with the posts not individuals!
Can we still discuss fashion?

It's going to be hard to have any discussion at all when people are distracted giving "karma points" as they please. I don't see how it's not about the people. As Descartes said, "Cogito Ergo Sum" - "I think, therefore I am". Our opinions are a big part of what and who we are. If someone disapproves of my way of thinking, they probably won't like me anyway.

I'd have to disagree...

I have many friends, and even my bf that I don't necessarily agree with their opinion and I never disapprove sometimes, but I love them to pieces for who they are. If we all thought the same way we would be machines.
How many times on tFS do we agree and disagree with designers, models and clothing. Yet we do not hate one another. We are all entitled to our opinions and respect different point of views.

Which is why I don't think I should have the right to be rating people.
