Hah yeah we've been fucking around with it. I just got reporting set up so that I can track the chagnes a little closer. Hell I dropped to 70 karma from 102. OUCH!
Right now karma has a rediculously heavy ranking towards member-member ranking. So if you guys rate each other it will calculate accordingly. Remember that calculations only happen at 11pmEST once per day, so you won't see changes immediately.
We'll see how this turns out, and adjust accordingly. This is going to be cool when we get it working the way we want it.
i was just about to make a thread about this. i dropped 15 points overnight. im gonna do some member rating now!
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!-JEA
It goes the other way too...you see someone you think is too low, you rate them higher. I just mentioned it the other way in context to what that person i was quoting was saying.
And for the people that feel bad....anything over 50 is considered good! that means people have rated you and someone out there values your opinions. The more people rate everyone, the more this system will work itself out. Its based on participation and if people don't participate, its not going to work regardless of how many times they tweak it.
i dont really understand the point of this karma
i mean why do people care aobut it and their post count
it just means there on the computer when they could be skiing or doing something else
its like ns is a video game and people want a higher levle or something
from friendliness, to helpfulness, to say if someone should trust you when buying something. basicly if you have 70 something u can be pretty possitive that this person is quality and if they have 30 you shouldnt listen/trust them.
