No I asked the same question some time ago, when some idiot thought he would smite me every time he logged in because he didn't like one of my comments.   In a 2 day period got like 30 smites.  And it was funny that the number would be +1 right after his last login time..  And that went on for quite some time.. My actual number should prob be more in the teens.. ;)

I spend an unhealthy amount of time logged into the board.. So its quite easy to see number go up, and oh isn't that funny that idiot just logged in again ;)

But when I asked the mods before there is no way to see who is doing the smiting.. A post pisses you off, sure smite it -- but you doing it every hour on the hour is kind of childish and kind of skews the numbers.

But clearly someone or multiple's didn't like your crying about "rude" on a public forum would be my guess..

I don't understand why some people feel the need to do that.  There was a rough patch there and you got some heat, but it's not like you're a bad person or something.  We all make mistakes, and people should learn to move on.  I take my reputation here quite seriously, and I would never give anyone a smite unless they truly deserved it.  Most of my smites came from one particular person.  You got exactly one smite from me, and that was in response to one you gave me.

Ooh, yikes. It does seem like your neg karma went up by like 10 recently. :(

I gave a few initially, but like KOM said, you're doing pretty good lately, chrcoluk. :)
It kinda sucks that tons of dislikes can be pumped out by a single person. I think Derelict's high neg karma came suddenly, which is seemingly an undeserved occurence.

Digital karma is a very confusing phenomenon... I try not to care, but...

KOM I may have gave you one smite yes, as I remember giving a couple out.  But then like you said I see no point in holding grudges and doing repeated stuff like that it is childish.  I dont know how you knew was me tho :)

All my recent posts in other threads I believe should not upset anyone so it kinda shocked me how rapidly its rising.

When you're at -16 for more than a year and then after an exchange it's at -17, it's not very hard to figure out.

Allowing anyone to view who gave a +/- on karma would open the door for retaliation over meaningless Internet points. Far too many downsides and little to no benefit to knowing who did it.

Not even admins can see who clicked applaud/smite, but we can edit the numbers directly.

I would.  And probably have at some point along the way.  Have probably given most of the regulars here one at some point along the way.  What's the point in even having it if it's not to be used.  But I don't engage in karma wars.  It's bad karma.

Don't get me started man.  I have background in web load/stress testing.  Could put you all over the moon in a matter of minutes.
Not that it would take much experience.  Like John said.  Nothing some punk kid couldn't do.

I sort of like the way it's done at DSL reports on a per post basis.  There, everyone can see the quantity per post, but only the poster can see who gave them.  Also for most forums only up votes are enabled.

In the DSL reports scheme I'd prefer the down votes be enabled also, but also not show the poster who they are by to avoid karma wars.
Is much more useful I think to see what post are liked and disliked.  Than just an unassociated overal user karma.

The user karma ratings here far as I am concerned are meaningless because they are not associated with anything.  No way to tell if some users karma rating is frivolous.

My Ratio is better than your Derelict??  Yeah that doesn't make lot of sense... I am way more likely to post something that pisses someone off ;)

"over meaningless Internet points"

Meaningless - you mean they are nothing more than reddit karma??  I thought the ratio was the actual of length of your e-penis?  Well WTF??

My own opinion is it should be positive only, to only provide a happyness feeling in the community.

If negative is allowed, I think allowing it to be done anonymously and without a reason just is inviting abuse.

over meaningless Internet points

They're not meaningless.  In a tech forum, the karma score can show you who is helpful & dedicated vs Joe Rando who just popped in and is spouting nonsense replies.  Low karma does not equal bad advice, but high karma tends to consistently have the correct information.

Or a clique of people boosting each other.  Or people inflating their own, etc.  The karma ratings here are useless.  Even John presents evidence of that.

One vote up/down per message so that others can see which messages are valued, and is used to make up a posters karma +/- I think would be much more useful and due to the one vote up/down per message helps keep it from being abused.
