This is my 5,000th post!

This is my MobileRead post number 5,000. I now have more than 6 million karma, so that averages about 1,200 karma per post! Thanks guys!

Now, a little bit off topic, but check out this video for the future of computer displays that correct for visual defects without the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses:

Reading in bed will be easier without glasses, when this technology comes to ebook readers. And these displays even correct for CATARACTS! Awesome!

You spend way too much time on MR. Go read a book.

Edit (And congratulations of course!)

Hehe... unfortunately, Karma has become completely worthless.

See this post and the accompanying discussion.

Nevertheless, at least in this forum: congratulations, and thank you.

For the life of me, I can not see how that post about Amazon branded credit cards has anything at all to do with the Karma feature of this site.

Could you please explain?

Sure.

There was a guy putting forward random accusations towards Amazon. That guy is generally disliked by, and his story is being questioned by, "the regulars". Yet, he managed to get almost 500,000 karma with just 3 posts.

It (probably) took me somewhere around 200 posts to even get to a karma of 100,000, and I at least hope that those posts were much more insightful and useful than the 3 posts of that guy.

Which is why I'm saying: karma is not a good measurement for "usefulness" - or for anything at all, in fact.

Yep that does seem strange. I'm at over 10 million karma but have over 3.400 posts since I registered in 2010 which works out to 3171.8 Karma per post. I don't know how I got that high (though I imagine a good chunk may be from ebook uploads) but it didn't happen overnight.
