By helping another member to the point they want to say "Thank you for your help."
They then click on the "Add Karma" button next to your user name.

I noticed that I can add Karma to myself. "Thank you for your help." I am helping myself (to get good Karma).

Karma is an indication of the appreciation of other members.

It is pretty meaningless to add your own karma.

No you can't. I just tried it.

(Purely for research purposes of course).

wwb00: 31 Posts, 31 Karma
Equinoxx: 0 Posts, 0 Karma

Neither scenario seems plausable (especially 0 posts when I'm looking at a post!)
What, I need to say something else too?

No you can't.
Sorry, but it certainly looks like someone indeed can.
(Unless you meant to imply that "till the moderators become aware of it.")
I've figured that much with regard to a couple of accounts, most suspicious.

Dang! That's too bad cause some of my best posts are here.

(edit: confirmed, no added post for this one.)

How do you know they added Karma to themselves? It might have been someone else. Mr. Sock Puppet, for example.

OK, I did it once (by mistake) on the previous forum - and it worked (I just know it did.)
I tried it this time and got an error message bounced back that you can't do that.
Nevertheless - 31 and 31. Suspicious. No?
What if someone has two accounts?
(That Mr. Sock Puppet could do with some watching.)
