I've had it go both ways before too. I'm all about nice round numbers. Got one rounded just right today. I guess it's like an OCD lottery. You never know what will happen.
I came looking for this thread because I've seen people with 100000 karma and I thought it was odd. So this is done on purpose.

Some old timers got odd Karma before the change but now they will always have odd Karma. Originally the change was to prevent giving 1 point which was seen as chintzy but the change came out different.
And the intrigue continues....

I thought we had it figured out after the quoted post. We could only give even karma now, but before we could give any karma and that's why some are stuck with odd karma.

But, that seems not to be the case. I just saw with my own eyes someone go from even karma to odd karma today. The ironic thing is, it's the same poster I mentioned in the first post of this thread! That poster got a big karma boost from someone and went from the 101100 that I left them with, to 213889.

So, who's got the answer now?

Well I have no clue when you have millions of Karma points. I think what happens is that the software ends up in floating point and loses it way every once in a while.

Thanks for the karma.
I'm going to try to add 110 to your 2191890 and see where that goes.

It seemed to work for me. Might be the math.

I do remember suddenly being over 100k. Initially I thought that I only had 10k+, because I had had 8k+ before, and the last person who gave me karma at the time had less than me, so I don't really know why I have so much.

Winning the OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) lottery means successfully rounding someone's karma out. To find out why that can be difficult, check out the rest of the thread.

Suffering slightly from OCD and now that this thread has brought this issue to my insane mind, I want my karma to be rounded up too, I want it badly!

You seem fine, I think I need more karma to play on ;D

But, I'm good.
