You guys put way too much stock in karma points. It makes the entire exercise on this site a popularity contest. And creates class divides. I formally request my karma points be adjusted to zero please.

The whole thing is silly

Switch to mobile. There's no avatars, user scores or anything just the name and the post.

I like my avatar .

Denying ignorance shouldn't be a popularity contest .

It should only be about the information .

Whats life without common ground ? Karma points have always been a game and ATS has usually had great KAa-Tet although sometimes its ka-ka also.

Now might be a good time for me to ask what the hell "karma points" even mean?

ATS has had its fair share of users who only post for magical meaningless internet points. Its all part of the dopamine algorithm that every other social media site or forum uses. They aren't going to stop any time soon.


I think it is a hinderance to all of social media but its doing exactly what it waa designed to do.


Keep you addicted.

I've seen them on the profiles but still don't know what the number is supposed to mean.

You created a public thread to lodge a complaint and make a request to adjust your account regarding what you feel is an unnecessary popularity metric?

Are you addressing the right target? Of all the stats figures, "karma" is the one that is most difficult to push up deliberately, because the relevant calculation includes the instruction "divide by the number of posts". If someone keeps writing reams of rubblish in the hope of improving their stats, their karma figure actualy goes down, for that reason.
It's quite a neat method of quality control.

I don't either. I figured it was just some oddly calculated score we're to know nothing about.

Do you lose karma points when your funny comments are removed? Your points are even lower than mine.

But never fear, your stars are much higher.
