Hi Everyone,
So I've recently been giving a new forum feature some thought. The feature is known as Karma and it allows members to give points to other members on the site and in some cases take them away. It's kind of like eBay's member seller / buyer feedback. I decided to activate it on a trial basis to see the communities reaction.

What prompted me to take the plunge and activate it was the thread about Dimitri
http://www.viczcar.c.../topicseen.html

When to use positive karma

  • You ask a question and someone helps you with a useful response.
  • You buy something from a fellow member and it checks out A-OK
  • You have been reading posts from a specific user and find their responses professional, useful and concise
  • You want the community to recognise someone for their valuable contributions
  • You like clicking on things and watching numbers go up

When to use negative karma

  • Use negative karma if someone is not helpful or rude
  • Use negative karma if you bought something and it wasn't as decribed

When not to use negative karma
  • You're having a bad day
  • When you don't agree with someone- use your own discretion here
  • If you are having a heated debate on a topic - debates are fine as long as people are being reasonable.
  • On newbies - don't make outsiders and first time users feel unwelcome. Give them the benefit of the doubt

Most importantly I want your feedback on this feature. If you like it, hate it let me know or maybe just tell me via karma ;).

One final word on this feature is that I hope it doesn't alienate people or make them feel like they have nothing to contribute.

Let the Karma begin!

I am wondering what can of worms I've just opened with this, but it will be interesting to see what happens. I guess if you don't really care it shouldn't bother you, but it is a nice way of thanking someone for their help. I do wonder if you should be able to (-) karma though. I think there is an option to disable that.

Was it a Karma Ghia (VW)? 

Or are we approaching Karma-geddon? 

I like Karma Electra!! 

I don't like Karma - Karma - Karma - Karma - Karma - Karma - Karma - Karmelion.  It comes and goes.  Hairdresser's song!!  I know you're singing aren't you.  People are staring at you.  Put your hands down!!  You're making a dick of yourself!  Stop Singing! Sit down and stop singing, NOW! Repeat after me; Karma Electra, Karma Electra, Karma Electra - well done, you're a man again!

can someone give me  a + please?  ;D


NO.

what more can I say :o


You'll find something to say!  Did they have Karma in the 70's?  What sort of lap times was it doing?

Just remember guys, don't take it too seriously. It seems MaygZ isn't :)



Honestly though if it causes more problems than it solves I'll disable it and that will be the end of that. No soup for you!

I think everyone needs to Karma down a little!  this thing will just Lurch along on it's own for a while and as Leyton would rub the salty sweat from his brow he'd all tell us to 'Karm on'! and if anyone wants to really 'get into it' I know Maygz'ie will just say 'sir I need you to a'karma'pany me to the station, where a lovely guy who started all this 'the gentle giant' as some know him will tighten yer nuts for ya!
