Bring back Karma! It was a nice way to tell somewhat you appreciate what they had to contribute. "Thanks" just doesn't quite mean the same thing.

Also, karma gave our forum something special. Something to talk about. Like a mystery.

If we are going to get rid of things that not everyone understands, maybe we should get rid of all threads about balancing running gear.

Yea, Bring back Karma, who cares what the definition is. We could call it a potato. "I really liked that post, here's a potato"

Just sayin' words are arbitrary. I like the Karma word.

Well it looks as if I lost about 3,000 Karma points in exchange for getting 40 Thanks points. Is this like the Euro vs. the dollar thing or what?????

lost in translation

Director [in Japanese, to the interpreter]: The translation is very important, O.K.? The translation.

Interpreter [in Japanese, to the director]: Yes, of course. I understand.

Director [in Japanese, to Bob] Mr. Bob. You are sitting quietly in your study. And then there is a bottle of Suntory whiskey on top of the table. You understand, right? With wholehearted feeling, slowly, look at the camera, tenderly, and as if you are meeting old friends, say the words. As if you are Bogie in Casablanca, saying, Cheers to you guys, Suntory time!

Interpreter [In English, to Bob]: He wants you to turn, look in camera. O.K.?

Bob: That's all he said?

Maybe the thanks button could be replaced with a karma button and the forums would return to that happy place that some really seem to miss.

One of the problems with "thanks" is - its does not reflect Karma's good will. There are times, with this group and others, where members have lost friends, pets, family members or shared personal disasters. It would be appropriate to send good wishes - Karma - to let people know you care about them but I would never send thanks!

Probably my last thought on the issue - I just may be stirring the pot needlessly.

I understand your point, but I would never send Karma for the same reason. There are times when a personal PM is more meaningful and appropriate.

This illustrates my point exactly

We could have a potato button: "Nice post, think I will click on the potato button. So why don't we go back to Karma.

Please??????????

The "Thanks" button works fine for me and seems like it works as good the "karma" button did. Karma, Kudos, or Thanks...whatever you call it, it's about being appreciative for somebody's post, and sharing that appreciation with the poster. I say leave it as is. Thanks!

is that leave it as it "is" or "was" ? Not quite sure what your choice is.

Can't say it better. Ever tried to send "Karma" by a "Thanks" Button?? Karma says thanks as well, but is also says "we care for you"...

From me - no "Karma" for the "Thanks" Button

First these Forums lost their name and it now looses its Karma

Sad days on planet earth...

This thread has potential to produce a complaint that this community is nothing like the real Forum and should be renamed again.

Or... How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Anybody message John Lennon yet?
Instant Karma's gonna get you,
Gonna knock you off your feet,
Better recognize your brothers,
Ev'ryone you meet,
Why in the world are we here,
Surely not to live in pain and fear,
Why on earth are you there,
When you're ev'rywhere,
Come and get your share.

Well we all shine on,
Like the moon and the stars and the sun,
Yeah we all shine on,
On and on and on on and on.



Move ... away ... from ... the ... keyboard!
