I was wondering if there was a way to get notified when you are given karma the way you are notified of PMs and visitor messages?

Thanks,

if we do have a karma notifier, i think it should be in the form of a genie appearing out of a bottle and shouting "KARMA !!" in a puff of smoke. :D

I got over and back in less than 5 seconds.

Or you could just memorize your current karma scores and check when you notice it increase.

Sorry... my karma increases much to rapidly to do that.

(If only there were some type of device that could keep track of mundane data and preform repetitive tasks. Sigh.)

EDIT: only need 50 more karm to over take dg. I have more than twice as many posts... not fair. :TEMPERTRANTRUM:

If life were fair, I wouldn't have any, the the book uploaders wouldn't be able to count what they have. All I do is post.

Speaking of karma... (and begging for it) as we are. Is there a way to view someones karma other than their posts? I don't see karma listed on the profile page.

i don't think so, but you can see their karma fortune, if you hover over the blue squares (to the right of their pseudo, in the profile page). and that's the best part of karma anyway, right ? ;)

I just ordered an entire pizza because I was too lazy to go anywhere and only ate three pieces. I did just accomplish something though. I dropped a lighter on my reader and knicked it a little on the screen :(
