The topic seems to have shifted a bit. It has been hard to follow.

This comment here answers the original question:

I have given karma on a random thread before because I liked someone's sig or someone's avatar. Who hasnt?

Suggestion:

I'd love to be able to see to whom I've given Karma, and when.

Reason: I like to thank people for their help/support, and there have been times when the same people have helped me with different problems on different threads, or in a couple cases helped me multiple times on the same thread; but I can only thank them once. I'm then told to "spread the Karma around".

This would be fine if the hold didn't seem to last "forever". It also means that sometimes I forget exactly where the post is located that I wanted to "thank".

I understand limiting the karma, so that it is not abused, but I would at least like to be able to have a way to go back and track down those posts I wanted to thank in the first place.

I would also like to know how long that "Spread the karma around" hold, lasts. There was a week, when I was really only talking to 3 people. Should I have just randomly doled out karma so that I could get back around to them?

Please & Thank you.

Nyssa, whenever you need to spread your karma around, you can always give some to me. I'm more than glad to help you out.

Oh, spurn me not Nyssa! You're breaking my heart. I was only trying to do you a favor. Is this the price of kindness?

It is alright, but I don't think things will ever be the same between us.

Create a folder in your favorites, save the posts you want to give to at some time in the future there. After giving to a post then delete it from that folder.

3 servings in between giving to the same person, no matter what length of time.

I have just read this thread, and would just like to add that you should not

tell the poster that you are giving them Karma. I did, and when I attempted

to give the Karma was unable to do so. I was in 'bad books' and a lot of

unpleasantness followed.

Cheers
