Want to give much appreciation to Agarta for showing me how this works! Thought I would share with those that care! This was very helpful to me.

Agarta passes the credit on!!!

Thank you so much but the real credit should go to schuyler for their post here www.abovetopsecret.com... which is where I got the information from some time ago.

P 291 = posts F 110 = flags S 261 = stars W 3 = index HOW? K 17 = WHAT?

P= How many posts you have made. F= How many flags you have received for threads you author. S= How many stars members have given you K= Karma ((stars * 15) + (flags + applause) * 10)) / posts W= WATS (number of posts ÷ 600) + (number of flags ÷ 80) + (number of stars ÷ 170)

reply to post by Agarta If you have the time and can demonstrate this for me using my profile statistics I would greatly appreciate it.

Here is the math at the time I did it.

K=(([stars]270 * 15=[4050]) + ([flags]114 + [applause]1=115) * 10=))=1150=5200 / [posts]313 = 16.61 (16 shown)

W=([number of posts]313 ÷ 600=.521) + ([number of flags]114 ÷ 80= 1.425) + ([number of stars]270 ÷ 170=1.588)= .521+1.425+1.588=3.534 (3 shown)

These change depending on the math. more posts less stars=lower Karma and visa versa. The wats never goes down only up.

I'm new here, so just figuring things out. I think that the karma score goes down when you edit your posts b/c this happened to me when there was no input from anyone else to affect the score. Anyone else notice or know about this? I'll check the other thread to see if anything about that is mentioned there.

I am surprised that more people are not interested in this!

posted on Oct, 27 2012 @ 04:38 PM
I will always be wondering what I do to make my karma go down! What actions determine this specifically? Has something to with stars v post. But how do the post get rated? Does editing effect this?

No editing has nothing to do with it. If you look at 90% of my posts you will find that they are edited for spelling lol. karma will go down when the math is off. In other words if you continue to post but are not getting stars your karma will go down as an example. The the opposite is true as well, if you post and you receive stars your karma will go up.

Don't you get any consideration for the posts themselves with Karma? seems you should. It is silly I know, just one of my OCD.

Take care.

I should have made my post clearer.

I meant what does the acronym WATS mean?
What does WATS stand for?

ATS stands for Above Top Secret (so it could mean WAY above top secret????LOL)

Bet my karma is going down now. LOL

Actually you are correct it is your Way Above Top Secret Score= WATS

Edit to add: When this score reaches a certain point you become eligible to enter the secret and locked forum known as RATS or Really Above Top Secret which is seen directly above Skunk Works in the Conspiracy Theory Forums section of the Forums page. The top 50 members with the highest wats score have gold boarders on their posts and the 50 below that have silver boarders.
