I believe it's based on when you signed up for ATS. You were 2004. So they hooked you up with freebies.


Anything 2004 and earlier got hooked up I think.

Naaaah .. it's a massive glitch. The star count and karma number mean nothing. Just ignore it.
The flags and post count are correct. Applause on the profile is correct. But not the rest.

When do we qualify for the free coffee cup? Though I wouldn't mind seeing a ATS beer mug.

I wonder if they have one of the Mods looking at all the data from this glitch though and if it can be fixed easily through their IT guys & Gals. (Woof! That would really have to be a pain in the 'ol tukus to go through all the members here. Maybe a fitting punishment for a Mod who breaks T&C's?)

You must have inadvertantly activated ATS godmode.

I think so. I'm wondering if this new 'Admin feature' in my profile had anything to do with it.

It started out with just one account ... then two ... then a bunch ... now a whole lot.

You'll see that the glitch infection has no rhyme or reason behind it.

You'll notice that the glitch doesn't hit by sign up date or post count. It seems random.

How long has this been happening for? Any one know if/how this is going to be rectified?

Anyone else think they should just get rid of Karma and WATS and relapse it with something simpler.

I have never been a fan of those systems, seems like there could be a much better way of doing it.

It's known.
Let those >old members< keep their stars


But the karma system isn't that helpful anyway. Keeps people from posting in no star topics. To get stars one has to be the first poster in topics or create new ones. - Or could you say the karma works in another way? Unloving people scare people not to post in their threats by not giving stars


So all those blind news people, famous ones, star seekers and those with friends got most stars. The wisest people I see are usually very low on karma.
