P: Posts =how sad your life is, is displayed here...high numbers means you post a lot here, and your girlfriend left you -cries-

F: Flags When you create your own thread, people can flag it if they find it interesting...high flags means you introduced a number of good threads on ATS...or you introduced a thread that has the keywords "Obama" and "Socialist"..that tends to rake em in.

S: Stars = your posts that have been halfway interesting that others starred (clicked the star thingie above your post). The higher the numbers, the more cool you are, or again, how often you used the keywords in your posts.

W: Way Above Top Secret = I could tell you this, but its better to sing it...lalalala, I have no clue, lalalala. (pretty sure its how interested the reptilian illuminati members have taken a interest in you...if its over 100, your doomed)

K: Karma. General stars to post (I think). If you have like 5000 stars, but 50,000 posts, chances are, you suck at posting, but if you have like 4 posts and 3000 stars, you are a freaking prophet.

So your K rating is 31 so i'm guessing that......?

Karma is influenced most by a stars-to-post ratio, with a minor influence from flags.


SaturnFX contributes well to other Member's threads (maybe not mine, but you get the point)

31 is the bestest score ever for karma...it means you can occasionally talk sense, but your also too badass to care about catering!

and thats my view (until I move to 30 or 32, which then defaults to the best karma score)

W is for wats index.. And K is for karma.

Edit to add: They are calculated by your star to post ratio, and flag to post ratio..

Lol, if I ever hit 20 that would be a feat worthy of guiness.

Oh well

Oh man, Saturn your posts here have been epic! The points system explanation has to be the best I've ever read!
So, seeing that I can't give you a star here, I'm just going to find any arbitrary post of yours and star that
. Talk about being badass and circumventing the system!

Yes, but when it arrives, it's empty...so, it's not really as cool as it could be.
