stupid noob question - giving karma
« on: November 12, 2008, 11:07:57 PM »
so i've looked through tech support and forum bugs, i've looked through the help page, i've searched.
my tail is tucked and i'll now ask...how the heck do i give someone a little karma? do i have to have a certain
number of posts before i have that option?

thanks! and if it's obvious and i'm just overlooking it, i willfully accept your (good natured) chastising.


edit 2 minutes later.
apparently i answered my own question. this was my 5th post and i now see the option to "karmatize" someone. please see topic title again :)

Once you hit 10 posts (Prepper status) a few more things will open for you.  Karma may be one of those, can't remember exactly.

The karma choices are located directly under your karma score & above the members avatar.

**ETA**
+1 for having the courage to ask noob questions.

Yes it is required to have 10 posts before you can give Karma or Ding Karma.  This is to prevent brand new people from running amuck with negatives before they UNDERSTAND negatives are not supposed to be used to punish people but only to state that the poster was sort of out of line.  That is except for Millerized who has sort of ruined the entire system,  ;) by begging for negatives.

I might totally hose him some day and take away the negatives all together and leave only the positives to display for all.

Isn't there a "God" status if you get over 100 positive Karma?  Onmipotent power over all below me kinda thing?  Kinda real life Dark Helmet kinda stature?!

Hellz Yeah!!!, I'm all for that...I am woman, hear.......er.....um.....uh....




....nevermind.


(Might want to rethink that one more time)

I'm actually thinking about coming up with some special title for the more "colorful" members of our little tribe here.  :D
Millerized could be " King of Negative Karma",
And I think Archer could be "Spam Slayer Supreme".  ;D

One is from me.  With him wielding his Godlike powers today, giving himself 30000 negatives, (I gave him his #6)......with 30000, what's one more. It was 30001 when I clicked it.  I was having fun with him, much like the half dozen he's given me. ;)

But, with opinions, come folks that don't like them.  In not liking an opinion, some people just lash out in the only way they can: giving the person a negative. There are a pile of opinionated guys/gals here.  Some WAY more so than others.  ;D But, opinion or not, there are always a minimum of 2 ways of looking at a problem.  What works for you/me/him may not work for the other.  Luckily, this forum gives everyone the method of presenting all sides of the problem, and usually a solution from each as well. This lets you, the reader, learn all methods, and or all solutions. Which one you choose is your choice.

Remember, opinions are like rectums: everyone has one. Some are larger, smellier, louder or more prominent, but the base structure is not unique. ;D

Actually, its too large now! :D.  You have to slide the bar across to get my picture to fit.  Maybe someone needs to "cut off my head"? or at least trim it down?

You realize that when you hit -100 Negative, you will be crowned "Emperor Of Negative Karma"
and a new crown will need to be bestowed upon you, Your Negativness.
