I also got 4000000 karma point things for startig a thread
But I wouldn't call either of those posts spectacular. Maybe people just like penguins
(you have to examine a particular unutterably silly post about chickens to make sense of that.)
You can rest in peace though, because I put my extensive karma to goodish use: I recently almost doubled baf's karma.
Maybe he thought it was a glitch.
I bump people from noob karma (such as 10) to 2600 when I see that they posted something that adds value (hacks or documentation) to the kindles. So that 2600 was from me.
The bulk of my karma came from humorous posts in the parent (general) forum. Only a small part of it comes from the "starving artists" in this forum. In fact, I have added extra digits to the karma of most of the developers here, so we can begin to compete with the megakarma "funny" people in the other forums.
I like karma, so give me some already!
