Made sticky by pharmadancer (87219) on 2007-02-04 07:55:08 temp sticky

I have just spent a couple hours removing hundreds of karma from this board.

It seems as though the disco boards have become a haven for karma abuse. Many people who post threads in this forum - especially those threads who say "good luck to ____ member!" - seem to give karma to almost every reply. This is strictly against the rules! Giving karma to someone who says something nice about you, like "you look good in that cozzie" is not karma worthy. And if you are giving 10 or 20 or even 80 karma points in a single thread, then that is called karma abuse.

Please read the sticky to find out more about karma. It will give you more information about karma and when it is appropriate.

I understand that the disco forum is a tight-knit community. That's great! But karma is not to be given just because someone is your friend, or because someone says something nice about you.

Please help the mod squad by mod reporting anyone seen breaking the rules - we can't read every thread in this forum! ;)

Thank you.

Karma is for well thought out, informative, or witty posts. It is a reward for people that help the site become more informative, or helpful to those around them.

While we love people being nice...that is not a reason to give someone karma. I have listed some links to karma worthy posts. The website is a much better place because people have taken time to write helpful advice to others.

We will remove karma when we can't figure out the reason someone would award it karma worthy. Saying a costume is nice does not qualify.

On a side note, saying "Hi ___, see you on thursday!" is equally not karmaworthy.

If not past, I'm nearing my 100th karma removal tonight. My mood is rapidly getting darker... considering all the karma notices plastered all over the site, I may soon resort to temp-bans for karma abuse as little else seems to get people's attention.

I totally agree with everyone here.
Although, what happens when someone edits you a picture out of the blue. Can you say that you really appreciate it by giving karma to another one of their posts? Because it will probably get removed.
I've had this happen to me before.
I think we need to be able to type a reason why we give karma, then if its karma worthy it won't get taken away.

it is good you have remined people what karma is !!!!

but if people feel that people have taken time on a particular post then they have every right to give them karma!

just my opinion!
