i have way more karma than is deserved, and i just picked up 2 doses from razzing terry! to his credit, one hit came from him.

so FYI, everybody, if you don't have any intelligent questions with which to bedazzle fellow forumites into crowning you with karma, well, try being a smartaleck instead.

You earn karma power by:
- 1 point for each year of membership
- 1 point for each 250 posts
- 1 point for every 50 karma points you earn

The amount of karma you earn is based on the karma power the person giving you karma has.

Here are other rules
- you can only give 10 people karma per day
- you have to give 10 different people karma before you can give the same member karma again
- all members have 10 karma points by default
- If a member has less then 5 karma points their "karma gifts" do not count towards any other members until they get their karma back above 5.
- a member must post at least once before their "karma gifts" count toward other. So if a member has never posted, they can still leave karma but it wont have any effect on the user.
Thanks for the in depth information about karma. Can you elaborate a little bit more on this statement:

The amount of karma you earn is based on the karma power the person giving you karma has.

Could you publish the breakdown of how much karma you get based on what a person has? For example:

1) If I have 5 karma points -- how many points am I giving someone when I give them karma?
2) How many points am I giving someone if I have 10 karma points?
3) How many points am I giving someone if I have 100 karma points?
4) How many points am I giving someone if I have ....

Does that make sense? I'm curious how the "math" works.

Also, does negative karma work the same way (i.e., the power of the negative karma is based on the power of the karma points I have)?

Wow...I think I get it!

I just checked my karma and being relatively new on the forums I only have four karma line items. On the other hand I have a total of 190 points so I guess that means that one or more of those four people who gave me karma are pretty strong in the karma points department!!!

Thank-you!

So, mods can see other people's karma? If so, I'm just curious...what is the highest karma quotient on the forum?

I aspire to be really, really good so want to know what competition I"m up against!

Maybe it's just me, I clicked on CP and did not see karma in the dropdown box. Is it hidden in one of the sub-titles? Maybe it's my settings?

Also, thanks for explaining "Karma". I have always wondered exactly how it worked, but didn't feel like asking.

Click on "User CP" at the top of your window. It is located in the blue stripe just to the right of the word "Portal". Then scroll down and you will see a section called..."Latest Reputation Received...".

I just gave you some good karma so you should my note to you next to my member name.

I did find your post, thanks for the free Karma - I may need it at some point!

I did not find any number listing an amount of karma I may have banked. Not a big deal to me, hopefully I treat folks nice enough on average to not have to bank too many.
Thanks again.

You should see your Karma number under your name on the left. You will only see your own, nobody elses.

However like too many other things around here the mods CAN see your karma. That being said, I usually forget A) that I have it and B) to spread it around
so I am off to see the Karma and step in it too

Also keep in mind when looking for your karma in the regular threads that your karma score does not show in the first or last posting in a thread. Used to bother the heck out of me because I could see it on one thread but not on others until I finally understood.

On edit: I found that the karma does show in the last post in a thread just not if you just posted. You need to refresh the page with your browser for it to show.

more confusion ....

... other people may have this "bug" in their karma: I don't see a karma score under my name in posts but instead a "give karma" link that then displays my score.

I did finally find it in the latest reputation section, but it does not show up under my name at left. Only rivets, number of posts, etc.

I'm not really that concerned about the whole issue, I'm just still trying to learn the site. About the time I think I'm doing OK, a "mystery" crops up.
