Well uh they're obsessing over something actually really stupid.

That's why it was removed at Kuribo, because people complained about it yet it literally has nothing to do with anything...

No. Its just user rating. They make a big fuzz about it because apparently they arent the top users on the board

Blah, enough of this.

We made this change to encourage post quality and we're not undoing it. Next person to whine about it gets a ban.


Few of the posts in the last page were whining. A couple of legitimate points were made.

Please stop generalizing things.

EDIT: I can't see the deleted post, so I can't tell if it was whining or not.

Hey, why not gain something when you get enough karma? Then, users who want to get the thing would be very careful about their post quality. It'd be nice.

I changed the karma weights a bit. Now the whole thing is as follows:

Karma starts at 0 (Not 100 as before).

+1: +10
new thread: +2
new post: +1
user vote: +/-5 (normal user), 10 (mod), 15 (admin)
Deleted post: -15
Thread you started is trashed: -20
Thread you started is deleted: -30

So karmas are... less negative now.

I've also clarified the "top +1ers" thing. It also shows the people you've +1'd the most.
Also displaynames are gone due to stupid and useless abuse.

Yep, looks better this way. 'Low quality users' still have negative karma but they have more of a chance to get a good karma.

Not like there's anyone to blame for that...

Either that or beg everybody for them
^ I think that should be a rule, tbh.

Anyways, this is actually significant for people to improve if they're unhappy with their current karma.

EDIT: The fuck why did it reset to the username instead of the last username used?

You can always request a nickname change to an admin if you want to change your nick permanently.

The purpose of display names was that, so people could change their nicks themselves. But it ended up being LOLDERP RANDOM NICKNAMES WHO IS WHO. So, removed.

Why did you decide to include postcount in the new new karma formula? You stated in the news post that it's supposed to promote quality over quantity, but that effect is diminished quite a lot when postcount can easily make up more than 75% of your karma.

EDIT: ...and he already found a way around it.

Yep... and I did, however, because of "the way" being CSS abuse, I'm not going to do it. Still, I don't see anything wrong here, I think that I sorta abused it too (in fact, other "abusers" usually stayed on one display name for a long time, not case for me).

Not that display names abuse was a big problem IMO. You could easily recognize people by layouts and minipic, and hovering over username showed real username. And really, the problem was worse on SMW Central, because SMW Central didn't have any way of determining who is the person (there is no one canonical username, unlike ABXD).

In fact, I believe username changes were and are a bigger problem on SMWC (where you could change username once a year), than here (where you could always change your username), mostly because of the fact that SMWC doesn't have canonical usernames. There is no way of determining other than reading this thread (which doesn't even include all name changes - I once requested name change from "Glitch.Mr" to "GlitchMr", and it isn't on this list), or looking into user's bio (if that person mentioned the name change, not everybody does, of course).

By the way, I've a feeling that a bonus for new post is too big. Perhaps 1 karma point for 5 posts, or something.

What? Suddenly my nickname at NSMBHD is 'SpongeTown'.
And I can't choose another name anymore.

EDIT: Oh, I see why it's changed, but still...
I don't like it.

Ask administrator for a name change.

I think you should ask Dirbaio.

Ok, I like the new Karma system, but I do have a problem. What if you start a decent thread and some derp/troll decides to ruin it?

It's only a problem if the thread gets trashed.

Same problem affects, for example, the old hack threads that have been trashed. The users who made those threads got karma taken away unfairly because of it.
