Yep that's it! I checked (through the admin panel) and he's been such a generous guy that he's given out all 10 daily karma doses already - between 1/07 (18:59) and 1/08 (14:25) - ten were given.

Way to go Don! Check back later this evening ~

So is there a reason for the limit per 24 hour period?

Whine on: I mean its really inconvenient when a person sees all these great photos/posts to give karma to (there's lots of them) and then you spend it all in one thread and have to try and remember who to give karma to in the future...whew Whine off:

I guess what I am respectfully asking is does the karma time limit have to do with some sort of system software thing or is it tied to some other rationale?

This is a good question....

It is a software thing, but it might be possible to change the setting. I'll look into it.

I expect that there is a limit set to make/keep karma values stable and desirable. Kinda like the Fed regulates currency...

Thumbs up

Janet, You differentiate between "Karma Power" and "Karma Points". It looks like we can only be aware of our Karma Points via the Control Panel, is that true? Is Power only beneficial because it makes our gifts of karma more generous to the receiver of the gift?

BTW, I love giving karma...It's a fun way to show kindness to strangers

Thanks,

Steve

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.

OK - here goes:

Your karma points are simply your accumulated karma score. Other users can't see your karma score.

Your karma power dictates how many points are given when you award some one else karma points. This number varies for each user and is calculated thusly...

One power point for every 250 posts
One power point for every 50 points of karma score
One power point for every 365 days joined to the forum

Other things you might want to know about karma:

Each new user receives 10 points upon registering.
You cannot give karma until you have made at least one post.
You cannot give karma if your karma point total is less than 5.

Crystal clear right...

Deleated Donors

Here's the ? When I look at my karma chart I notice it has a list of donors. As I receive more points the donors at the bottom of the list are deleated. This is without my consent!I rely on these donors to keep me going day to day- they are my friendlies!. I had been thinking about putting them all on my buddie list- as soon as I could guess how to do that-but suddenly they are gone. I'm sad about this as when I was a fng here I was encouraged early on to contribute as best I could. Now they are gone- I want my donors back. How can this shattering fault be corrected??

They have not been deleted. The points they shared with you are still in your karma score. What has gone is the comment they left. The forums software only show a finite number of comments and so, as new ones are added, the old ones drop off the list.

Hope this helps explain...

...and even then, they aren't really gone, they just don't show up on your UserCP page. It's kinda like the portal page, they just drop off from being visible, showing only the most recent comments.

Does that mean that the comments are available somewhere, if you know how to access them?

If not, is there a way to archive certain ones that may contain information or a comment that you want to retain? Kind of like keeping certain PM's.

One more karma question. One of the members did not have a karma icon to click on, I was unable to give him any. Is that due to his set-up or is it a fluke?

Thanks for all the info,
Dave

No, not currently for members, only forum administrators can access them.

You can periodically do a screen shot to archive them for yourself...or an administrator can do it for you, it's kinda cumbersome, but if you PM me can do it.

Sounds like a fluke...I don't think you can give karma if you have never posted before or if you have negative karma (an overall negative number)...but other than that everybody should be able to give & receive karma. If this shows up again, let an admin know & we can look into it.
