You did look in the right place, and yes, you can see who awarded it, and why (provided the awarder gave a reason, which is something I strongly advice everyone to do. If you do something good, it's nice to know what it was, right?).

Have another look under user CP, and let me know if you find it, ok?

I Say... Details of Adding to Someone's Karma

For a bit more detail - In every post someone makes, up in the right corner there is a small group of symbols. First is the post number. Then you will see this symbol . Following that you will see a little computer - This is only for mods and admins.

Anyway, this is where the 'Add To Karma' button is located (and remember, the top of EVERY post has one):


When you press that button, this popup will appear:


You MUST give a reason. People very much like to know why someone gives them Karma.

After you click the Add to Karma button in the Karma popup, the popup window will auto-magically close and you will be back in the thread you were reading.

NOTE: Very, very seldom does someone give negative Karma. I don't recommend it as it's really not necessary here - I am looking at disabling it, actually. NOTE: 2005-04-25 Update: Giving 'Negative' Karma has been turned off for quite a while now so registered users no longer have that option. I did this because I don't see any need for it.

Now - If you really, really want to read the gory details including fights from the past when this forum was relatively 'wild and wooly' and all the other gory details, this is the definitive thread to read: Karma (Reputation), Chat Rooms and Some Other Contentious Chat

ALSO See: Karma - How do I get karma? How does Karma work?

This is the Karma Indicator 'Mod' used here as of 090713.

"This hack extends the existing reputation display system from just the light/dark green pips to green and golden pips, and then a series of bronze, silver and gold stars as the pips limit is reached.

The dark green pips are followed by light green pips, which are then followed by gold pips. When the limit these can display is reached, the (prefix) display of stars begins - starting with the bronze stars, then silver stars and finally gold Stars. If your reputation is zero then the neutral grey pip is displayed. Negative reputations are displayed in a similar manner using light and dark red pips and red stars - however, there is only one star level for negative reputation.

Each time you 'lap' the limit of the pips display, another star is added. The number of each star is limited by an ACP option (by default, 5 bronze = 1 silver, and 5 silver = 1 gold). The number and value of the pips in each group of pips is defined by six settings in the vboptions > reputation options. A line break can be inserted after the stars. The extended display system can be enabled/disabled in the options."

I Say... Seeing who gave you Karma

To see who gave you Karma, go to your User Control Panel (usually referred to as your UserCP)

You may have to scroll down a bit. You should see somethng like this:


Hope this helps!

What does the "thank you" box say?

I am curious - What does the "thank you" box say? Once we have selected a post to receive karma, we have an option to add a comment. Once adding the comment, a box flashes us which has the words [I think], "thank you ..."

The box flashes off too fast for me to read what it says. Is the text posted anywhere?

I Say...

It's a 'transition' box with no timer - So it loads and moves on to the next screen very fast because that and the next part of the php script are not cpu intensive and don't require significant database calls. It says:

"Thanks for adding Karma to this user! May you be lucky enough to receive the same Karma back in turn!"

Question What's Up with Rep (Reputation - aka Karma) Power?

I guess I was away too long. What is Rep Power? Obviously it is something one should probably have because all the big guns have it. I know there is no corresponding Dem Power because Marc would surely have some of those. Thanks in advance for the briefing.
