I want to commend someone for a really good post but I don't know if that depletes my karma or how it works. :-/.
Giving karma doesn't affect your own in any way. But how much you have affects the size of your karma gift, as mentioned earlier on this page. If you have more points, you give more points. It doesn't grow on its own, it grows when people give you karma. It generally is not taken away, but I believe there is no karma associated with deleted posts. The only limitation I'm aware of is that the number of points maxes out as explained above. That and a couple other things also explained in this thread ... you can't give karma to the same person one after another ... I believe you must karma nine others before you can repeat. And I believe there's a limit to the number of karmas you can give per day, but I don't believe I've ever run up against that limit so I'm not positive what it is. I imagine it is also explained in this thread ...

the points don't mean anything anyway so it's nothing to be sad about

the comments are what really matter

karma question
this will sound dumb but can somebody please explain details about karma?

i accidentally hit the "give karma" link but on my own post, and then a list of comments came up. also the number of karma points. is there a central place to check your karma without having to go to each post? what is the purpose of the points? is there a way to see who gives you karma, or do the comments remain anonymous?

thanks. sorry if this is explained elsewhere but i checked the faq and did a forum search for the topic of karma without finding anything.

moved your post here.. Hope it answers your questions

You can check your karma 'messages' when you go to User CP at the top of the page
It will be near the bottom of the page,
under the list of threads you've subscribed to.
And, you will be able to see who gave you the karma too

As for the points, not sure when we will start giving a function to those... Many people ask :p No problemo

Ok hit me over the head if I sound stubborn, but does your karma count have a limit? Is there like a limit to how much you can receive and it just stops rising after that limit?
Because Ive been receiving karma lately but my karma total doesnt seem to be rising at all, it's at a still.
