    No kidding, the kinds of things people were doing to get karma, I can't write about in a civilized forum. It was a misleading system at best.

    i think it was more of a game then anything else...it's like growing a plant...it's fun to watch it grow (or die depending on the type of karma)...

    Karma was reset, and we're starting over with non-anonymous karma. I think Lee is going to try to prevent karma from being given in the Lounge and Everyone forum too.

    I've never seen any Internet forum effectively implement a reputation system that's worth a damn. Ever. If SDN can eliminate anonymity and begging then this time it just might work, but I'm not holding my breath.

    well, it's a defunct system either way, b/c many people give excellent support and info, yet not everyone will applaud them for it.

    Essentially, we all know who's a good resource of information and helpful. No need for Karma points to tell us so.

    The karma system reminded me of middle school class officer elections: basically, a popularity contest. Yecch. :rolleyes:

    This was an attention seeking feature which is currently under-review, or suspension.
