^I understand what you mean, Andora, but I personally don't think we can completely disagree with someone and still like them. Plus, this whole karma thing is being used as an approval tool - thums up or down. It's constraining. But again, it's a trial feature and I'm sure Andy will know what to do if it becomes a liability to the harmony of tFS.

I think it already has. Just look at how many people responded to this post. It's a major disruption.

Plus I think its a power trip for some people.

I've just checked my profile and I lost them for agreeing with Nemova.

I definetly don't think that I like this new feature. I agree with several people saying that this will become a competition and that points will be taken away because of someones opinion, or given extra ofcourse....And that can be very frustrating for the people who lose their points. I know that it is not a feauture that is ment to rate personality's but I fear it will....

I am trying really hard to focus on getting used to the new look and feel of tFS but I have to admit I am distressed to see so many of the people I care about here so unhappy.

I think everyone understands that the karma points are supposed to be used for rating the usefulness of posts.

I have to say that I think there is a certain level of denial present here. The fact is that vindictive behavior occurs here all the time. It has historically taken the form of verbal retorts. The karma system presents a novel new opportunity for settling grudges.

I think the karma system is interesting but I do see that it can be abused and that it is making some of our most valued and thoughtful contributors uncomfortable. This should be noted and considered.

I think opinions should continue to be heard.

How can you see?

Can I see if I got any points added or taken away?


I think we should have a vote on whether or not this karama stuff stays.

if you dont like the rating, stay out of it, dont rate,
dont check your scores, simple...
its not obigatory to rate, or to ..look at it for this matter

its just a feature fgs, we've been JUST checking dohh

relax, its not so important, if it annoys you, pay no attention
why does everything has to be SO very dramatic?

No offence but I don't understand why you're so shocked? Drama often occurs when things change and people have to adjust. It happens in real life and on TFS. It shouldn't surprise you too much.

I'm dying of laughter here. Someone took away one of my karma points!

Who has the guts to admit to it?... Lena?

And what about the ones who lost several points in just a few seconds? We could just ignore this feature but it's annoying to see that this is being used to rate people's opinions. It's like an elephant in a small room, we can't just pretend it's not there.
I think it's a bad feature and I'm not gonna use it. I much prefer discussing my way out of diverging opinions.

you obviously enjoy drama ivy, excuses for me not sharing..

this is a public FASHION forum
and drama is not a part of this community,
has been kept out of our topics for such a long time...
i dont see why some should import it at tFS
-as they may have done before to 'other' forums before-
is this neccessary?

do we need drama so bad?
as THE new post-upgrade feature??
lets discuss this, i'll be glad to hear your opinions.

I don't like this. at all. I feel kinda sorry for people like Versace_Goddess who will end up losing the popularity contest (as Purple put it) just because their tastes and mentality don't match with the average here.
