    What are some of the cool things added to akaQA associated with karma points?

    Just read up on rules and karma points, . Many probably don't,  so this question is asked that all may be made aware.

    The bit about karma points has been up for as long as akaQA has existed. It's not new.
    Bob/PKB

    So what are the cool things? Please find out and post for us. Thank you, Colleen.

    Have asked for 2 years. Have always just been told they would be working on adding features. Never found out myself what the features are suppose to be. I did get a message 3 weeks ago that the part you've asked about was to be updated soon, that came with the message telling me that rules would be posted to the forum due to many requests by members.

    Not paricularly clarifying, but I kind of expect non-answers from admin. :-[

    Bob/PKB

    We brought the cool beans, yippy, and woot. Admin does keep adding stuff, though how cool isn't the issue.

    This issue is not as cool as a Barrel Full of Monkeys.

    Skirt worn by men and women in the 'land' formally known as Scotland.

    Available in a plethora of colours known as Tartans. Can be sewn by hand by Auntie Marion for a reasonable price. One must provide one's own little nappy pin for added flair as Auntie Marion ran out years ago.

    I can hardly wait. lol

    This thread is way too complicated for me. can we start over??

    Bob/PKB

    Read the "karma points" explanation at the bottom of the page, to the right of "About".
    FISH-O

    What are Karma points?

    As you contribute to the community your profile accumulates Karma points. These points distinguish you as a respected member and one which opinion is highly regarded by the community. Gaining Karma points also opens up doors to some cool features in akaQA which are constantly added.

    The karma points system is not intended for resolving personal conflicts between members.

    Here's how karma points work:
    Each "Thumbs Up" on your question or answer yields 15 point.
    Each "Thumbs Down" on your question or answer yields -35 point.
    Each "Thumbs Down" on someone else's question yields -10 points.

    Number of daily votes

    The number of daily votes you can give is limited and grows as you gain more Karma points.

    Copy and paste just for you Vinny. :)
    mycatsmom

    But, the points don't mean anything :-|
    FISH-O

    Except giving them away is loads of fun. :)
    doolittle

    interestingly enough , though I haven't dropped Karma points, being less active here has lessened the # of Karma I can give....hmmmm ???? It s a bit of a relief, at one point I had so much Karma I could give out in a day that it would have been virtually impossible to hand them all out & prob would have taken more than 24 hrs to do so.
    FISH-O

    Swami Doo; Everyone's TUs to give away has dropped. At first it was 50 then it moved up to 75. :)
    mycatsmom

    Vin, that's how I feel.
    doolittle

    Thanks Fishy
    itsmee

    Dr. doolittle: I haven't seen you around much. Miss you. How are you feeling?

    Sorry Bob but I'm not aware of any "Doors" opening up for me as yet.Maybe after I crack the 400K.:)

    What do you mean by "Cool things added to akaqa" ?

    FISH-O

    You know! Cool things!
    digger

    Are you poking fun at Bob?
    Bob/PKB

    Just quoting from official akaQA explanation of Karma Points.
    digger

    I missed it the first...and second read. Must have been deleted.
    Bob/PKB

    Gaining karma points also opens up doors to some cool features in akaQa that are constantly added. First paragraph, not quite word for word.
    FISH-O

    Oh, those cool things. I thought we were talking about the new cool things. The old cool things never occurred. :)
    Bob/PKB

    You were "on a break".
    They were VERY cool things.
    FISH-O

    Dang!! I do miss the cool stuff every time. Darn this having to make a living thing.
    Bob/PKB

    Foolishness, my good woman. Working is for the working class. Just buy a lottery ticket.
    FISH-O

    ... Now you tell me!!
    Bob/PKB

    It's not too late. Just spend every penny you have on lottery tickets. It's a sure thing.
    lindilou

    um....um..I thought you guys were the 'cool things'....lol! (no, really I did..)(blink)
    FISH-O

    I thought that was you Lindilou.
    lindilou

    coolio hoolio ! It has been rather chill as of late here on Ape Island...whoop! Brrrrrr! ;(

    I don't get the question. b/c when it first started, I asked what the rewards are for karma points, and they said there's no reward. So, I  never paid any further attention to it.

    So you never give anyone a TU (thumbs up) for their answer?

    mycatsmom

    Yes, I gave people TUs, if their answer was well thought out, but I never noticed how many karma points I had or somebody else has, b/c there's no rewards. ......nothing to work toward.
    Bob/PKB

    I think of the karma points as telling me my aka peers appreciate my thoughts, humor, and values. There are some people who, for all intents and purposes, never give me a TU. I don't know what he doesn't like about me...must be something big. Oh well...
    Ducky

    Moderator
    @Bob...I have a few who NEVER give me a TU either. Over time I've heard from them..."too busy", "never think of it", and "don't pay any attention to TU's". (Uh huh) To me the TU system, along with humorous answers, WAS all about added enjoyment and communication. That's pretty much gone now and it certainly shows by the lack of activity on the forum! I miss many of the regulars but it's a very different forum now and I don't blame them for leaving. :(
    Bob/PKB

    @Ducky: I agree, some really good people are missing, and I miss some of the strong opinionated folk as well as the instigators. Having to be careful not to offend people who need to be horse-whipped is tedious. It's too bad the Admin feels the need to be so controlling.
    Ducky

    @Bob...Odd though, how much admin seems to have "changed" since 2011. They apparently went from LOVING humor, chit chat, and lots of TUing to HATING it. Very odd.
    Bob/PKB

    You are very observant. I liked the "wars" on religion and sexual preference, the lambasting of truly ignorant situations, and the chance to speak out. I was chastised recently and am walking on eggshells here. How much longer I want to do that remains to be seen. My comment was a quote from something I saw on Daisy's FB, and it was appropriate. Sigh.
    Ducky

    Moderator
    @Bob...I didn't see your "chastisement" but lately, I've had some "sighs" of my own. The changes are disappointing in my opinion (which doesn't count of course) but, who cares? Not admin apparently.
    Bob/PKB

    I got an email, Ducky. Bottom line is akaQA has not improved with age, unlike you and I. :)

    Glad you got a response at least and...how true Bob, how very true! lol

    O.K, I read it, still none the wiser though, no firecrackers or sparkly stuff here

    Bob/PKB

    Nope, not a darned thing. Hope you are doing well.
