Wow, just discovered this thread. Now I get where Karma accumulates so quickly. Very happy to see that Crutledge is now getting the Karma/appreciation he deserves.

Great thread. Thanks everyone for helping to explain how it works.

I think this is a good point.

It was fun reading the changing fortunes. Now, if a Karma dinosaur gives you Karma as a newbie, you might just jump over all the funny lines, which is really sad.

I know what you mean! Me a die hard SW fan had a complete collection of SW action figures until someone gave me karma and I lost it

The real question is what do you do once you have karma ? Can you exchange it for money or a price reduction on your next book purchase ? Or can you use it to play in lotteries, or to help pay the divorce fees to your lawyer ? Or what ?

I find receiving Karma opens opportunities for a quick chat and so I add 'social value' to it's benefits.

Karma > 2^31?

I've now seen karma on a couple of members exceeding 2 billion. I'm just curious if the karma field in the database is a 32-bit integer value so that maybe it's limited to 2^31 or 2^32? Will it ironically wrap back around to 0 (or better still, -2^31), which perhaps means you've been re-in-karma-nated?

A while back, folks in this thread talked about a re-vamped karma system which was in the works. Anything happening with that? Just curious.

Based on the karma economy right now, it's going to take at least 2,000,000,000 karma to buy a loaf of bread.
