I've been here three and a half years, 4,000 or so posts, and have about 85,000 Karma.

maianhvk has been here no more than six weeks, and made less than 150 posts, and has over 115,000 Karma.


I must be doing something wrong...

It's pretty clear some people on here are screwing the karma system somehow - making it pointless.

Not sure how they're doing it, but it's pretty obvious you don't get over 7.5m karma by posting "I'm drinking [insert name of fancy tea here]" 5000 times

Any only 140 posts. They must have been really good posts.

It is certainly not pointless. The problem is too many points . Of course it may be worthless.

Well, never mind about my K point. It's mainly from the pictures I posted in a thread - people were generous with me, I think. I'm still a new member and haven't added anything to the forums yet, so... don't judge from the K point

(I still wonder why my K point seems bigger than those of some active members)

One of those imponderables much akin to the answers required of the questions to 'the meaning of Life'; 'The Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything'; 'what is gravity'; and 'why I like chocolate' ....

It seems to be a case of "the more you have, the more you give", so if a person with 100 k points gives some out its going to be less than a person with 1,000 points, who will give less than a person with 10,000 points. the giver can only choose to give less than the allotted points not more, and it looks like most people choose to give the max.

Whether or not it might be wise to remove karma from opinion based rather than ebook based sections of the site. Instead of right-wingers and left-wingers pumping up the karma of anyone who agrees with them it would be left to the places where it is gifted for making a contribution to mobileread.
