Karma system
« on: April 04, 2017, 10:35:02 PM »
I like a karma system, mostly for giggles. But I am inclined to make it a "positive only" system - where you can give kudos but can't smite/neg.

Thoughts?

Smite would *sometimes* gave a place. You see the end result but not who gave it or why? That seems a bit lacking. Which post did someone agree with?

The verbage and icons can easily be changed, that's simply the default.  I'm uncertain whether it's easy to configure to allow an 'upvote' only.  Can look into it.  I turned it on just as a whim, and figured it could just as easily be turned off. :P

It is easy. I've done it. I'm just looking for feedback on it first.

Also yesterday I had my first smite and now I've had another. I'm thinking maybe we disable that ;)

Some people are just smitable.  Sadly I missed my chance it seems.  :-[

it does have its drawbacks.  You don't know if its a I hate your guts, or just a friendly poke between mates.   If people aren't feeling 100%, they can also read more into things that aren't there.  We know depression is a real thing that effects a few of us out there.  Also some of us can just be a bit more fragile than normal at times.  Getting a bit of sand kicked in your eye isn't what you need at those times.

Physically I'm in a bad place temporarily.  It is taking a toll on my mental health too. There is hopefully light around the corner soon.  Until then, I'm glad its off.

A valid reason for it to be always off.

You knows we lovs you.  (still wish I gotten a chance to smite you once  ;) )

You could smite with kindness, I'm sure with enough "cookies" someone will end up with diabetes.

I'm totally instituting the THAC0 system I put into place over at ENO too. Fuck y'all if you don't like it. THAC0 for life.
