some member express concerns that we need a system to tell if a member's comment is trustworthy or not. to that end, BC is going to experiment with a karma system. the way it works is quite simple. the karma system is a member-to-member award system, you can award each post that you see a positive or a negative karma depending on your reaction on it. over time, each member will gain or lose karma points. we hope that will be a more accurate measure of a member's trustworthiness. to award a karma, this is what you do. besides each post, you can see a karma icon: . clicking the icon will bring you a menu in which you can award the post either a positive or a negative karma. and that's is it! each member can only give 25 karma awards each day. so use it wisely. as mentioned, BC is running this as an experiment, what we want to see is genuine award of karma and i don't want this to turn the forum into a popularity contest. if we find out ppl abusing the karma system, we will turn it off.
