Having a great time trying to familiarise myself with this luscious, lovely new look ALS. In the course of my exploration I went to “My Profile” (as one does) and found a heap of little toothy looking things listed under the word “Karma”. Can a kind soul please let me know what the “Karma” ranking signifies? I’m sitting here getting all paranoid thinking I don’t have any – then again, at least if it’s nothing then it’s not bad, right???

Wow Humbug, you’re up late. So glad I’m not paddling on my own 🙂 . Hopefully someone will be able to shed some light on it tomorrow or soonish.

If you check out the right hand side of each post in a thread, you will see a green and red button. The green one is for ‘applaud’ and the red one ‘smite’. It seems to be some kind of ranking system -I wonder what would happen if you got more smites than applause?October 31, 2010 at 12:07 am #481081

We send Doc round to straighten you out! 😆 :woohoo: 😛October 31, 2010 at 12:23 am #481082
I’m going to demandin the strongest possible terms that we change the name Karma to something that doesn’t have that flippin Boy George/Culture Club song going through my mind every time I delve into ALS.October 31, 2010 at 12:54 am #481083
But Lady B – that’s one of my favourite songs. It is, in fact, the only song I can beat the child at on Singstar! It has been responsible for at least 5 episodes of laryngitis – making it also a firm favourite of the hubsters 😆
Thanks for the explanation Earthmotherwithin.
Have a great day folks.

I was doing fine until you mentioned it. Now I have it stuck my head too. :SOctober 31, 2010 at 2:44 am #481085Reid_alderbooksMember
Trouble with the Karma/applaud/smite system. Is the cliques have a field day, and end up ruling the roost. I once got a pm off a member here once telling me that such and such posts were being ignored by certain members (about a dozen were named).
God only knows what that group can get up to with the power of karma behind them.October 31, 2010 at 2:50 am #481086GiannaMember
On nearly every forum I’ve been on, Karma has eventually been disabled due to abuse. :blink:October 31, 2010 at 2:58 am #481087AnonymousInactive
yup, karma will probably have the same fate….. for all the reasons above.October 31, 2010 at 3:08 am #481088

Oh thank you, Dan. No more Boy George! I’ve been trying to retrain my brain to focus on John Lennon’s “Instant Karma”, but it’s not working.October 31, 2010 at 3:58 am #481089Eira ClaptonMember
I love the idea of Doc turning up to ‘heavy’ people who were getting too many ‘smites” ! 🙂 He might tell them some of his jokes (LOL) -just kidding Doc!
I don’t mind us being able to say we ‘applaud’ something, but I am rather worried about smiting anyone! Not something to be encouraged on this friendly site, I would have thought.October 31, 2010 at 4:30 am #481090redhen2Member
karma gone already?October 31, 2010 at 5:22 am #481091barefoot_mistyMember
I thought cliques were an american high school thing.. not part of the grown up real world? Not that I visit the real world much..
