    Negative karma to Lazybuddy for calling cooler an "old timer." I suggest, err, "monolithic" and/or, err, "ancient."

    Pardon me while I look for my cooler-proof jacket/shroud now.

    ok. so what i have feared in the beginning has come true. the karma system has turned not only into a popularity contest, but also a tool for personal attack.

    as a result, the karma system has been switched off.

    from now on, i want everyone to behave. we will continue to moderate the forum, and if we see any deliberate expression of rudeness to other members, we will take the appropriate and potentially harsh action.

    Sigh..

    ...yay, the good 'ol days are back!! (and i hope it stays as is for the rest of BC's life & kwun has cast away the Karma feature deep into the depths of BC's Trash bin, so we won't see it ever again)..:D:)..well, for what it's worth, it lasted for all 3 1/2 months:p..And now, everyone (well, except kwun) is back on the same boat, "karma-less"..;):D:):cool:

    Finally... it's about time. There's too many immature morons out there in the world. This is one less tool for them to aggravate the rest of us:D.

    Hopefully...

    Hopefully, the so-called "old timers" should start showing the "new comers" with good manner and example, and please stop acting like you are the boss (倚老卖老). Being a "old timer" does not mean your insight/opinion is always right and agreeable. Let's grow up together.

    anyone is welcome to present their side of the opinions. Show me a case where i had threatened someone or wrongly accused someone without proof... Again like the Macau Open thread, u dish out allegation with proof. If u don't want to give some efforts or the time to compose a post with content to defend your position, don't whine about other people's opinions. Right and agreeable are 2 different things. Some people just need to grow up a bit faster:rolleyes:

    Which is exactly the reason why Karma is disabled, because people stray form topic and get personal/grudgy.

    well pointed out, though I'm not sure that was your intention...

    Oh dear. :( I had a use for the karma comments: they helped me find my best posts, so that I might convert them into articles someday.

    Nevertheless, I think this is the right decision for BC. This karma system has proved divisive.

    The irony, it burns!

    ;):D


    Anyway, to add value to a post. The karma system was a nice tool in the way Gollum described, it's just a pity people don't rate the posts, but the people writing them.

    Would it be worth it to keep the 'karma system' but lose the public tag (the green box)?
    That way personal agenda's and/or personal disagreements are gone, but the poster still gets it's feedback.

    If something like that were feasible, I'd appreciate it.

    I don't care about gathering karma points, but I do like comments. Comments are a useful indication of which posts people found most helpful -- in other words, they are free, relevant market research. :)

    Precisely!

    jerby, you got it absolutely right :)
    a very astute observation

    (If it were still around, I'd have added to your karma :D)
