I definitely support complete removal of the karma (or any similar) forum systems.

I am kind of whatever about it. I like the system, but I know that a lot of people get upset when someone smites them.

In seriousness, though, I like the idea of having only exalts, if it's actually possible to do that without having to hack the forum's code to death.
But I like smiting people. I honestly can't view the system as anything more than a toy. Which is why I will only smite people if I actually like them. I don't want to play with people I don't like.

Ohh, smite me, Vene.  Smite me so hard. ;)
I'll smite you like you've never been smote before.

Maybe we should have a poll to determine whether or not to keep the karma system.

I like this idea a lot I must say. It should makes it a lot easier to tell if a change in karma is because of a great/shitty post or just for the sake of drama.

Nope.

Nope x2
You have made a place in my heart where I thought there was no room for anything else. You have made flowers grow where I cultivated dust and stones. Remember this, on this journey you insist on making. If you die, I will not survive you long. Dovie'andi se tovya sagain!



People so seldom say "I love you". And then it's either too late or love goes. So when I tell you I love you, It doesn't mean I know you'll never go, only that I wish you didn't have to.

Damn. Was kinda hoping I could figure out where this +2 floating under my name suddenly came from.  :(

Not cause it’s important. Just never had any Karma on this or any other board before. So it’s all novelty right now. Like a new toy! :D

Yeah I've stopped caring bout Karma.

Ironbite-it's not like the rep system on vbuillitian so you can't check out who's exulted or smited

I’ve never actually been on a forum with any sort of Karma system before. However, I have heard recommendations on “Exalt”-only systems. Do you have any experience with that?

Facebook?

Although that's per post, and not overall.
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.
