to cut down on silly smites you could give everyone a 3 smite limit per day and make it so you cant smite the same person more than once a day. + can stay unchanged. that way for someone to build up alot of smites they would have to annoy alot of people.

"Can someone tell me what the karma rating is standing for?"

Nothing

Random people at random times are clicking on random buttons

It has no real meaning but keeps people occupied thinking it does

Yes, there is a minimum number of posts required to use the feature.  This is to allow new members to get a feel for whats normal as far as posts go, and to stop people from signing up just to smite someone before they have established themselves as a legitimate poster.

Use the plus or minus sparingly, I seldom use the negative unless someone is really super rude to others, but not enough to get a ban or warning.  Some are like kiddies, and just like to post negatives on others.  It really is not helpful to do this.  We do not track who uses the Karma.  Its recorded in the database, but we have not bothered to dig it out, so its anonymous.

If someone is helpful and is making a positive contribution to the discussion, by all means give them a positive.

Unfortunately it's not how real-life people will do.  Look at the karma of the guy "neuroanatomist".  I think online users love to smite more than anything else.   :(

Totally.  One of the best contributors on the forum.
