Karma = mutual admiration society?

Well, I hope it does something useful.

Karma = mutual admiration society?

So it is the same as LinkedIn?

Hey, that's the reason people get a LinkedIn account... ;)

OK, so you just made my day. Thanks! :)

And there I thought LinkedIn was useful... until I got hammered by their latest 'offer' to fork over gobs of cash just to connect with people I already know. Weird business model.

Oh, and I have Karma. Yay!

Nick Gammon

Oh, no! Not Karma again! What does it mean?

How do you get it? Some people have a green + next to theirs, I don't.

If it's some sort of "I love you" thing I will probably rate pretty low these days because I keep moving posts around and demanding that people supply more information. Oh yeah, and post their error messages. And their circuits.

Oh I see. The "+" is an "applaud" button. Ach. And what if someone is a nuisance? Is there a "piss off" button?

You don't see a cross against your own name, so you can't give yourself Karma.

That wouldn't be politically correct. We can only give positive reinforcement messages.

Yeah, like "I'm positive you need to post your code if you want help!" 8)

Whilst I understand the sentiment, surely there can't be Good, without Evil?

Good point. They need a "complain about this moderator" button. Enough people would want to use it. ;)

Oh, it does. On another forum, it helped weed out the know-it-all users who didn't.

edit: Those users will not like this at all. Too bad. To put it in computer programming terms:
lots of posts != lots of help

I think that would be a great idea only if.... it costs a major amount of karma for each complaint and you can't go negative in karma.
The advantages are :
Newbies can't complain about moderators as they do not yet have karma. Basically give them the message "learn the forum before complaining"
Complainers will run out of karma soon.
People with little karma (who care) may think twice.

I think this is something to think about.

Best regards

I talked to dcuartielles yesterday, and told me they had a new webmaster, but he shouldn't had turned on karma, so it might go away in any moment.

Oh crap. Now we go back to guessing who knows what? Only know-it-alls who don't will not like karma.

edit: The other forum I frequent has administrators and moderators excluded from karma. Only regular members can get karma. That way you moderators do not have to sweat this like some seem to be doing.
