    How does the karma system work?

    When a question or answer is upvoted, the user who posted them will gain some points, which are called "karma points". These points serve as a rough measure of the community trust to him/her. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to the users based on those points.

    For example, if you ask an interesting question or give a helpful answer, your input will be upvoted. On the other hand if the answer is misleading - it will be downvoted. Each vote in favor will generate 15 points, each vote against will subtract 35 points. There is a limit of 200 points that can be accumulated per question or answer. The table below explains karma requirements for each type of moderation task.

    * add comments -> 0
    * delete comments -> 400
    * close own questions -> 60
    * reopen own questions -> 120
    * retag questions -> 150
    * edit any answer -> 400
    * open any closed question -> 600
    * delete any comment -> 400

    I have to edit my answers at times because I see I have misspelled some words. I lose Karma points when I do that? If so, why is it something I'm being punished for?



    LOL, don't lose points (at least I've never lost any for editing and I edit most all my posts for typos). The breakdown is to show you the amount of karma points you need to do things like edit your comments.


    Thank you! Another TU for you. We have to stop meeting like this. <3
