Is there a protocol to getting Karma. Does one respond or give thanks. What are the rules?

If there is I've clearly been improper. To those of you who have been kind enough to send me Karma I say Thank you.

I still do not understand the original post though. I mean, who WOULDN'T want to get a little karma thrown their way? What the heck could be wrong with getting karma? I loves me some karma.

you've been given good council in posts like 2, 3, 7 and 13 here,

so this may be some of the useless kind...

there are a dozen good threads with K in the title that explain the basics of the system here...

so search and read and enlighten, isn't that a noble journey?

here is one on the mechanics which are NOW historical info only, since the system has changed....

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f232...tml#post356952

after lots of hard feelings it went away and like once said..."zed is dead baby, zed is dead"...

BUT there is still good background IN that thread/poll and funny stuff too (see post 38/39

and a parody on a REAL system for scoring and such (only a few folks got it) like baazebaaallll...

CURRENTLY...

folks still can put negative or foul comments in the text box along side the green...

it seems there is a thread here explaining how DOING THAT is a 'no no' too...

so would phrases like "damn you" or "could care less, but here's a point" fit that description...

it's best for the sender to...

decide,
inside.
wherein
their spirit
lies...

unless the green paired words contain threats or the receiver 'feels' threatened...

i would (and do) just let it ride, because it really still belongs to the sender, it IS their spiritual baggage.

...Is it possible to change your mind...?
---confusion is good and part of the pathway
---to give freely, judgements must vanish
---appreciation or expecting any response is not part of 'giving' in the true sense
---deciding IF the screws are "up" or "down" is for mechanics NOT on the path...
---how can one take back what is 'freely' given? only empty hands and hearts grasp 4 this sorrow...
---YES, YES...if the mind is open, clear and ready.

the use of the k word here and the a word (avatara) troubles me and always has.

while they are COMMONLY used online/inforums as done here and don't obviously appear offensive,

it IS disrectful to the rich and complex religious origins of those terms...

imagine for example if the forum faces was called your "jesus mugs"?

or the tally of points was labeled "jew money"?

many would be rightfully offended. but it is somehow ok? to use these k and a terms?

read about what those words really represent and u may see the issue differently.

Select User CP from the menu bar.
Scroll down to the blue bar that says: Latest Karma Received
Your Karma is score is on the right end of that blue bar.

Thanks for the karma thread--learned something new today!

I don't understand this Karma thing either but after reading your posts I went to my CP User page and viola!!! People have sent me karma and I had no idea......thank you, folks, I didn't know about it until today......some of them were from quite a while ago.....so thanks again...

Is there some way to receive a notification of a karma post? paula

I didn't know I had any at all until one day I happened to notice all these messages at the bottom of my CP home page. If there is some type of notification system, I have never noticed it. I have seen people say they were sending Karma to someone in a post, but I don't remember them saying they were sending some to me. Since I found the Karma post on my CP homepage I have sent Karma to others and included a short message with it, but I never knew if that person actually knew I did unless they checked their Karma messages on a regular basis.

So, since I have failed to show my appreciation for the Karma that I have received, I want to take this opportunity to say "thank you" to those who have been kind enough to recognize me on these forums.

treasure freely given

A karma is any action you perform while identifying yourself as the performer of that action.

Or you might just as well heed the words of the Immortal Captain Jack Sparrow: "You know, for having such a bleak outlook on pirates you are well on your way to becoming one: sprung a man from jail, commandeered a ship of the fleet, sailed with a buccaneer crew out of Tortuga, and you're completely obsessed with treasure."

Marcus, karma seems to me a lot like treasure: some folks want it, some folks don't --and any number of variations in between: some want it, but say they don't; some don't want it, but say they do; some have it, but don't believe they do; some don't have it, but believe they do...etc...etc!

In the end seems like we're all, at least speaking for myself, sorta like pirates in one way or another depending upon the concern?

Paula,
I stumbled upon the karma thing in my user CP s few days ago too. I had always seen the give karma button, but did not know what it was for or what it did. Now I know.

Paula,
Under the user's information / avitar at the left hand side of each post there are three icons. On the left is an indicator light letting you know whether or not the user is on-line. In the middle I think there is a set of balances / scales, that's the karma button. On the right is a red bordered triangle with an exclamation point in it, this is used to report a forum member when they have been naughty.

Let your mouse pointer "hover" over the icons and a "tool tip" should pop up letting you know what they are.

Bartender, a round of good Karma for everybody on me.

Remember...give good karma, get good karma...give bad karma, get bad karma.
