Just a little while ago, Dave. There's a topped thread where Rowland explains it.

They had a similar thing over on the Taper's Section and eventually had to do away with it due to abuses. I'll be curious how it works out here.

I don't think it will keep them away, I am more thinking it is a filtering mechanism for the forum. You won't have to read posts by anybody below your pre-set karma rating. By default, it is -10K. Once some of the more diruptive folks get enough negative karma points, once they fall below your minimum ratings, poof, you don't see their posts anymore.

This is going to help improve the site a bunch. Good Job, Rowland.

I hope it deters trolls. That would be nice. Hoping it doesn't turn into a weird popularity contest,

Yea it sure is, Slammer.......way to much negativity on here some times from a small group of people.....and with all the good on this site going on....its not needed....I still read it... and go 'hhhmmmmm.......'
But Rowland and Lana dont need to police us..... they got enough going on..... I hoping it will work out just fine..... and will make folks think twice before they start to go negative......hopefully....Life is to short to be Negative.... that I know all to well....
All the Best and bring on the Postive Karma!!!
Peace.....

Slammer -- yes, that's the idea -- the forum admins can still ban people, delete posts, etc., but each individual can decide how far down the negativity scale they want to read, and the community registers its opinion on posters, rather than the admins reacting to sporadic reports about person x or y.

We still expect people to maintain a "PG" rating -- this is not an invitation to go off the charts -- but maybe this will work better than the "playpen" idea.

best,
Rowland

All I know is I haven't been here to post all day and started out with a minus two. I made three more posts that weren't in any way negative and now am at minus four. This has the potential to do a lot of good, but already I can see a way to get someone off another person's filter for no good reason. I sort of like to think I balance any negative post I might make with some good and valid ones....however............

<watching my karma drop>

I don't like the system. Saw it crash and burn at taper's section, too. Can turn into a popularity or unpopularity contest.

You can take away my Karma, but you can't take away my Parkma.

I'm not big on anything that can impact someone negatively that's done anonymously.
