Return of Karma
« on: January 26, 2010, 11:07:39 PM »
kinda bored w/ just the +k.  whatcha think? 

im all or nothing, either bring back the smite, or remove it all together. 

things have calmed down here a ton lately, i feel like we'd be ok either way.

Yeah, I say bring it back.


It's not fair that you're the only one who gets to be in negative digits.  :evil:

Never used it much, but it was handy.

i forget our history w/ the smite

but i think when karma was initially turned on, we had the smite.  then tet took it away.  then we brought it back.  then we had a bunch of threads w/ people whining about being smited at which point it was taken away again. 

so im mixed on it.  my vote was always to remove the function all together, but some people seem to be able to have fun with it. 

no post brought it up.  i was sitting here 'pauging and my wife asked "whats that applaud button for?" and i had to explain it.  to which she said it was silly to only have positive karma and called us "happy little hippies" which i decidedly am NOT. 

so i figured id make a poll and see who agrees with her. 

no guarantees, just curious what people think. 

does anyone really think we could do it without a shitshow of complaining about being smited?  threads about karma?

bring it back so that it could just be removed a few months from now or a year from now?
it's the internet.  you know there will be drama eventually.

I say remove the whole karma system altogether.  if you like somethinging, say "thank you."  if you don't, tell the person they are an idiot.

I am always amused how everyone posts when they give someone karma but never posts when they smite someone.

X show sucks

that show rules

who smited me?

you may have be smited by someone reading another thread!

who smited me? I demand to know

karma doesn't mean anything brah

if you have something to say to me, tell it to my face, don't just smite me

blah, blah, blah

I like the "Thank You" idea.
