I read about it in the help section on the forum. Assuming it's not used anymore, what was it about? Was it a like and dislike system? I think we need that now lol B)

The Karma system was a reputation system. The higher a user's karma, the more "well-liked" they are. However, this system was removed due to many abuses and was deemed useless for such reason.

Well, it was removed for a reason.

People would dislike things, and then the person who made that thing would get angry.

Kiv, this Karma system WILL be abused. I highely suggest if possible setting it up for USER permissions ONLY. This will allow only trusted members to bring up or down Karma. These systems are ALWAYS abused UNLESS given to the correct people.

It was a system that existed when the forum first started in 2010. You could like and dislike people's profiles, and it was easily abused, as DavidF stated. Kivlov decided to turn it off because of that.

Wasn't that the thing that was used to troll and reported by, what's his name, Sammie116 ? I remember a while ago I asked about this and I mentioned Sammie had -7 Karma, and TJ linked the thread he made about it. I'm very happy that it was turned off tbh. I'd probably have a super-low number. :P
