    Cool Karma.. EXPLAIN!!


    How does this stuff work? I know if you start a thread it's 2 karma points, and posting is 1, but how come I can't give karma pts for a good post? I'm confused..

    How about you try reading, newbie!

    You can get karma for posts, just click the "karma" icon below the post you want to give karma to. I think I gave you some for your squatting thread, anyway. I'll check though. So, to try it just go to all my posts and add karma

    You seem to have gotten some karma above what you have posted.

    If you want to see where you got karma click on the button for a post you think youhave gotten it. If you got one for that post it will show their comments and who gave you karma.

    Cool


    Alright, brain children. I know how to use/see karma. I was just wondering why it doesn't give anyone anymore karma when I give it to them?

    Ok.

    1 karma point if you reply to a thread
    2 karma points if you start a thread
    5 karma points if a mod or member gives it to you....


    The problem is when members give karma points, I dont think theyre adding or being given....a couple of you guys try it out LIGHTLY.

    I believe there is an error about giving multiple karma's in one thread so what you need to try is give me and jweave both a karma both and doublecheck to see if we got one J/K about the bug(but not the karma )

    That's not good.. Members should be able to give karma pts.. Not 5, but at least 2!!

    A little background...


    These modifications for the forum (like the Karma system, news ticker, etc.) comes as a standard addition to the code base and any further customization needs to be hand coded.  If you have experience with PHP you know the tremendous amount of tracking that is involved with changing CSS.  The actual code changed may be one or two lines but in 50 different places.

    One of the glitches I must work out is members giving each other points.  I initially had it set that way but a certain 2 members (no names to protect the integrity challenged bros) gave each other 100+ points overnight.

    The other issue I'm working on is admin notification of the redemptions.  It isn't as easy as it sounds...and I'm a penny pinching SOB so hiring someone is out of the question

    Rest assured I am working on the system and when it is done will be a model for others to follow (I am going to release the mods to the public).

    For admin notification statistical output would be good and maybe even a listing from highest karma voters to lowest karma voters. That way you can find the most abusive(if there are any) the fastest and most easily.


    As for member to member what you could do is set a total daily limit AND a username daily limit so that way
