Willy;
 
There is a SMF Mod for adding comments with Karma posts, and to log them so admins can see if a user is ballot stuffing.
It's also possible to have only +ve Karma.
 
Seems to me that we could also change the -Ve karma to a posive thing, for example Tech Points.
So if someone says or does something nice then folks can give them a Karma +
or if a member posts a good technical fix or whatever folks can post a  Tech +
 
That way we avoid negative points and get 2 positives
Do we need this function, no, probably not.
 
Do folks like thire ego's rubbed yeah of course LoL

Could ya maybe just stroke my Id?  He REALLY likes it and gets SO jealous when Ego gets all the attention and then talks Super-Ego into constantly smiting Ego when things don't go Id's way.   :o

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

Thats what I was suggesting something like that. I was hoping for a more positive thing than just tossing it out without some exploration. I'll set it up now and we can re-title it if you and Colin agree.

I see no use of it, and based on the observed discussions, a lot more negative then positive.

I come here to glean information, hopefully pass some useful information on. Not "grade" other people or comments.
I will however click on things just to see the numbers change, stir the pot; I am easily amused that way.  :D  :))
(anybody need your numbers plussed up if this comes back, PM me  ;D >:D ;D)

I fear our higher selves may not be sufficiently evolved to fully appreciate the karma feature.

As Vic so aptly put it "I will however click on things just to see the numbers change, stir the pot; I am easily amused that way." 

This would also explain why we ride motorcycles when the rest of the world knows fully well that riding motorcycles is both dangerous and foolish.  :)

Perhaps we can use the feature in our next incarnation.

Glad to know I wasn't the only one.  It's a tough job, but somebody had to do it.   ;)
