Can someone inlighten me on what the whole karma points are all about?
Thank You

Blade :confused: :D
Not being a Mentor, (like they'd let me anyway...:t ) the Karma points are there to let the author of that post know that you appreciate their view, or that they suck. Just a little pat on the back if you will, and it can be fun. It's not a "How has the most?" knda thing and shouldn't be used to paste someone to the wall for opening up their yap before thinking. Although...

As my understanding of Karma goes, what you do comes back to you, so if you're all over someone's post or contest or whatever, lob a + karma note to them... it'll come back around to you. I'm not a big fan of the - points though there have been occasions where the author has just been a complete wack-job and the negative stuff seeks him/her out eventually, be it here or out there.

Because I want the person to know who's doing what, I make it a point to sign my karma sent and wish most others would. That's it. Check your karma level on your user control panel.

Sven hit the nail on the head.

Karma is really our fun way of giving thumbs up or down on a persons posts. Checking the stats show many more "thumbs up" than "thumbs down".

You actual Karma level is dicatated by more than just other peoples opinion - your number of posts and length of membership is also factored in.
Thank you Sven and Stephan for feeling me in about the Karma point, I just had a couple people post some karm for me and I was just wonder what was up with that
