Karma isn't that important, but my low karma which lowers every day shows me that I'm disliked… Why?

Do I spam,
flame,
say other stupid things,
or whatever?

I just answer people's questions on the Avernum board, and only very few times start threads or reply threads at the general boards.

This is not karma begging or something…

Some people feel that they have to give everybody they meet that they think sounds or smells bad a really bad rating.

It's only the younger ones though. (Not all of the younger ones.)

It's usually an average betwixt the 5 ratings and the 1 ratings, seeing as people usually don't give anything else.

Huh. At one point I changed my name, and blocked my karma rating. But then I decided that we all must be judged by those we don't know, so I stuck it back on. It dosen't really matter, in my opinion. None of us here are COMPLETE and total morons.

It's called people with no lives and nothing better to do than lower karma and know that you're going to be pissy and whiny about it.

Me, I just lower karma of anyone who's an @$$. But considering you don't do anything, it's just a bunch of people with nothing better to do. Do like me, hide your karma, and stop caring.

I know, and you're a much worse spammer than Ghost. Ghost, I ranked you 5 but it didn't affect you so oh well.

Don't try to understand karma. Don't pay attention to karma. Unless it comes back to haunt you in a future account, as karma is supposed to but rarely does, it doesn't mean anything, does it?

—Alorael, who finds it amusing that you can rate people who are not accepting ratings. You can figure out the how of it for yourself.

I like my karma at 3... it's a nice medium. As for why people vote you down, Ghost, all I can say is they are idiots. I have seen nothing from you that would merit a low rating.

EDIT: Alorael is down to 4 again?? Why?

my karma is 3 stars but it's an avrage and is rounded up, but it does not realy matter. Also the original thought/rateing of the person rated can never be changed so it might be a past descrimination that never went away becouse no one could change it to the better. Also it might be that people see low karma and just add to it becouse they think everybody else has rated that person low so the magoraty must be right. And the worst thing is that anyone at all can rate a person even before they are acainted with that person and person's views and personality. Final thought: in the rating it goes :D saint, :) high priest, :rolleyes: clean, :mad: dirty, and :cool: evil priest, now it is my oppinion that being an evil priest is a complement to some... :P

I don't think "Evil Priest" has ever been considered a compliment, but "Dirty" has. It puts you in the same group as cool people like Alec. [SARCASM]

Any rating lower than five will lower Alorael's karma, as with mine. His is probably around 4.48, like mine at 4.45.

Actually, I realized that the change in karma from one vote represents a mathematical impossibility assuming votes must be whole numbers between one and five, inclusive. Obviously the UBB's karma system is not only meaningless but impossible to understand.

—Alorael, who actually thinks that it may be based on arbitrary decisions of highly skilled karma readers hired by whatever company makes the UBB.

So is it easier to lose karma than to gain it? Also, I was wondering if people who don't permit people to rate them are allowed to rate others. Can they?

That's the way averages work. Anything below the average lowers the karma, and anything above raises it. With an average above four, only five causes it to go up. Of course, this assumes logical mathematics, which I have just seem disproved.

—Alorael, who believes those who don't accept ratings can still give ratings. No, it's not fair, but since karma doesn't matter, the fairness of the system doesn't matter either.

I will act to confirm Alorael's hypothesis - I can rate people, though my ratings are off.

Every few days, I'm rated by another person. And I still have 3.71 after two months. Meh.

I have voted on twenty-eight people in five months. Do I rate more than the average person?

Sodium Cyanide, Alec considers "Evil Priest" a compliment.

And TGM, that was not a yes or no question... :P

I've rated about 25 people in 2 years. I'd say I rate people less than the average user.
