    Checking karma of our Badminton Central posters


    Hi george@chongwei,

    If you direct your pointer(controlled by your mouse) to the Green Square under the Posts Count of any New/Regular Member or Registered User, you will get a message of how our posters are categorised, such as;

    (1) Member/User is heading the right direction
    (2) Member/User is on a distinguished road
    (3) Member/User is an unknown quantity at this point

    Perhaps, there are more categories... ones that I have not come across yet.

    And, I have noticed that you are on a distinguished road. :):):)

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    if you click "User CP" near the top left of the screen, you should see a list of comments. if there are none, that means none have been given to you.

    So far, as at 7-Aug-2007, we've found 4 categories of karma

    Hi kwun,

    I've just checked your Green Square, and found another category not listed in my previous post.

    (4) Member/User/Administrator will become famous soon enough :):):)

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    Perhaps it's the 14,000+ posts count that should be in the 'Quiness Book Of Records'. :):):)

    hey kwun, where can we find a list of the various karmatic categories and how many points one needs to achieve 'enlightenment'?

    With current rate, leading horses like master panda, master kwun, and master SH will slowly show you all the "levels". ;)

    I notice that I have a couple of neutral karma awards (the square is grey-blue, rather than green or red).

    How do you give neutral karma? And why?

    **edit** I should have guessed:

    i've never given anyone negative karma before... unless someone is spamming or being rude... but i got NEGATIVE KARMA!!! ME! NEGATIVE KARMA!!!!

    one for saying:
    in the thread 'a big slap to LYB'
    apparantly the person (looks around accusingly) said that:
    ... I'm like WTH??? i didn't slap LYB? I was being sacarstic and i contributed by commenting that other nations should improve...

    another one (gives everyone evils) is:
    where i got 10 karma points taken off!!! i was merely joking and to some extent, complimenting that it would be a 'wild prediction' for China not to win any medals... apparantly the person thought:
    and now i'm untrustworthy :(

    just my rants... dont un-karma me!

    You probably won't get a (-) karma if you put in some (logical) support or spin your 'slap LYB' statements a little as I am pretty sure not everybody likes him either - just learn to be a lot more careful or express your points in a more tactful manner.

    Instead of 'slap LYB' as being too direct, a 'introduce his cheeks to my palm' may be 'less severe' and may even be funny since nobody uses that expression.

    It's all about how you express it.

    You may simply have been unlucky.

    Bear in mind that different types of thread attract different people. Far be it from me to pass judgement, but that type of "badminton fan discussing top players/coaches" thread might attract less mature members, with fanboy-ish leanings. ;)

    Naturally not all karma will be "fair". Over many iterations, however, your true worth (as perceived by the BC community) should emerge from your karma ratings. Small comfort, perhaps, if your only karma so far is an "unfair" negative award. :(

    nah, just kidding ;)

    I'd say the massive contributors here deserve their ratings, Gollum, Dink, Silentheart, Pete come to mind...Me? I'd rather stay out of the limelight (;) I'd make a fool out of myself)

    It's only an approximate system anyway -- a rough guide. That, I suppose, is why we don't have "karma points" displayed (like a post count). It's not intended to form a direct ranking system (which would be divisive).

    The thing I like most about this is I can see what other people find helpful (or unhelpful!). For one thing, this gives me some clues about writing articles...
