I don't think I'm getting ATS, and what it is about. I thought karma related to posts, maybe I read that wrong? Then I thought I could post after 5 posts in another forum. Couldn't find that so I posted in the thread for questions from a Super Mod. Then I found a way to post a reply, so I did that. Okay, then it seemed like I might be getting the hang of it. But then I looked at my karma score and it has dropped from 4 to 3, why? I don't see what I did wrong? I only came here to discuss things as there seemed like good discussion going on but I don't really want to score points or compete to be a 'better' member. I really don't understand what I have done that I have been voted down karma. Or does something else affect karma. To be honest I just wanted to discuss interesting topics. I'm not the sort of guy who spends every day at a forum and I'm not into 'levels' and badges and all that computer game type competing, power to you if you like that, each to his/her own, but that isn't for me. Can I still post and discuss more casually?
