I believe one has to have a certain number of posts (5?) before they can give karma.

A number of us have decided to explicitly state when a smite or applaud is given to help understand the context and I find that quite helpful.

And as a side note, although I do not think the karma situation impacts it, this is one of the most civil forums that I have ever been a part of, so count me in on the group hug.  :-)  Every now and then I stop by nikonrumors and can barely stand to read thru the comments because the negativity and troll percentage; makes me appreciate what we have here.

The CR Karma system is a curious and clever one. I see it's function as a means for the board being self moderating. There is very little apparent CR moderator intervention here. It's occasionally abused with careless or vindictive smites, but I get the feeling that it does keep the tone higher than a lot of other boards.

Yes, there is a minimum number of posts, and it changes every so often as stated by one of the mods.

I'm pretty sure claiming to say nothing controversial is controversial.   ;D

Nobody likes a sheepdog - especially the sheep  :o :o :o

I guess I might as well be controversial just to give the smiter a warm feeling of correctness ::) ::) ::)

It would be cool to see some's ratio of given karma.  That is see if they have given 4/1 Applauds/smites :), 1/1 ???, 1/4 >:(...  I think that would be a better indicator of ones karma.
