I think it would be a cool feature if you could see which posts gain/lose you karma.

Hint:  You lost a point for that post.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Just to be clear. You don't earn any special abilities with high scores.
Yeah, way to ruin the joke that no one found funny besides thatguy.

Hmmmm.... is it really just a joke?

I think I know who is doing me, I wish they would admit it.
Is it because this was posted in this thread that nobody found this funny?

I just think that it is weird when I don't post for a week and then I lost points because of it.

When you reach 50 points, you can start giving yourself points.

That would explain a lot. For a while, I thought that people were retroactively smiting me for things I said weeks ago that got me praise.

What score do you need to starting applauding/smiting?  I'm currently at 7 and I see nothing at all.

Can you make people's screen names hot pink when they get over 100 points? That would be so rad.

I've seen sites move from karma systems to a "like" system and it seems to have worked out better. It seems like a good tool to encourage good-posting without smiting hate campaigns (which I love but am willing to sacrifice :faust:)

Here's one I found for smf, but there may also be others. 19 bux for the full version?

I am all for this idea and I think that it would improve the community as a whole. There is a bit too much negativity and I think that just having a like only could work. Everyone would have to restart with their numbers I would think so that the new posts reflect the new system and if someone was stuck at 0 then well their opinion isn't that well liked but people with tons then well they have a positive or well liked point of view.

Yes. I'm very interested in having likeable posts stand on their own, regardless of who posts them.

So why aren't smites gone and 'Likes' in yet? It should look like this:


That's way better. Or alternatively, a system to applaud/smite individual posts. Don't hate the poster, hate the post.

You mean something like Yahoo's commenting system where you can give individual posts "Thumbs Up" or "Thumbs Down"?

Yeah, I'd be down for that, too. I'd love to see how many "Thumbs Down" ratings tendoboy would get on each of his posts. ;)

Of course, a single person should only be able to rate a single post ONE time.

So, forum karma is back (the score under your name) for a trial run.

It's still here. Kill it!

Here's a good litmus test for forum features: Does somethingawful do it? If yes, it's a good idea. If no, it's probably a bad idea.
