Now, K = Karma K = (stars * 15) + ((flags + applause) * 10) / posts. Example: 7619 stars * 15 = 114285 (524 flags + 92 applauses) * 10 = 6160 114285 + 6160 = 120445 120445 / 4074 posts = 29.5643103 rounded to 30 Note that here quantity can hurt you if you don't also get stars and flags.
ATS may use points for other things, but we don't know what they are.It seems a bit odd that one applause can earn you 500 points, but it only counts the same as a single flag for the Karma score and not at all for the WATS score.
Hope that helps
