Just give them some back next time they say something you vaguely agree with.

Is that still the way it works? I thought it got changed.

I never noticed the Karma points before. Damn, wish those were like Bitcoin and I could cash it in!

plus the karma box and the smaller boxes either side of it.
OK, now I see my "reputation point" score which I wasn't aware of before.

But - the two little blue buttons on either side of the karma button. The right hand one, "!", I believe is to flag a bad post. But what is the one to the left of karma?

That's whether a member is online or not. If there's a cross in the box it means they're online

You do realise that doesn't actually balance anything at all, right?

Though it's marginally better than the passive-aggressive shite you see on arsebook - at least you named names

Yeah, pretty much. It's just a bit pointless as the folks with a lot of karma just fill up a newbies lot right off and the stars get fully loaded pretty quickly too.

No, just pass on the karma when you see a comment you like.

Yeah I've noticed some people use it as a sort of back channel communications medium instead of PMs.

My downfall is issuing Karma is that I often forget who I recently gave Karma to, and I get the notice that says "You must spread karma around before you can give this person more karma" or something like that!

Guess I don't spread myself around enough! LOL

I'm confused about something too, hoping someone can clear it up for me.

I understand that I read a thread the title no longer shows as bold (unless a new reply has been added (?)), however, when I click on to the next page of that forum part (for example page two of The Trailer Park) none of the threads are in bold - even though I haven't read them, why is this?

I think once a thread reaches a certain 'age', they no loner display in bold. If you look at those threads the most recent posts are probably from a few weeks ago or more.
