i dont really care about my karma i just now started to notice all of these threads saying "help +++++++++karma!"
1) Never fry bacon when you're naked.
2) Always keep at least one foot on the floor when it comes to eating dinner,
drinking tequila or playing cards.
3)never EVER under any circumstances eat the yellow snow.
you should rig them up with grenades, they would never steal skis again. ever.-uber scoober
i personally try to not look at my actual karma( i find the actual karma system kind of flawed, i mean you get karma for posting videos/pictures in the media section, and for being an active member of the site, but whos to say you are positively contributing to the site), or even care about it, the only thing i do look at is the "what other people rate me" just because i can see what people think of me based on what I say, and if i should be less of an asshole in what I say. I cannot speak for everyone, but for the most part I see people saying +k as an attempt to offer something in return for helping someone out, even if karma means nothing to most people.
french fried when he should have pizza'd. rookie mistake.
I dunno, its kinda a silly system but I think that it has its positives. At least a few people are pretty concerned about their karma and I think are now less likely to make posts like "SEARCHBAR NOOBZZZZ>!>!>!!" and are more likely to actually make a positive contribution. I know that when I read a thread and I think someone has made a significant contribution I give them karma or if they something really really stupid I'll lower it.... I mean whats the harm.
'You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours.'
