Random number generators decide if I toss a negative or positive karma at everyone who posts in this thread. It's a mother-fuckin' KARMA FIGHT!

It was a clever plan, but you overlooked its Achilles Heel: you cannot give or take karma from yourself.

I was gonna give you karma for that, but I didn't want to ruin it.

Hey is there a button that lets us revoke karma privileges?
Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: Classic on October 07, 2010, 11:43:03 AM
All things must come to an end Brentai. They should always end because I find something stupid impossibly funny.

EDIT:
For the slow kids: I giggled like a massive 'tard at niku's comment, but didn't want to ruin his karma thing.

people keep giving me positive karma and it's ruining my carefully constructed persona

God damn it, Envy. At least spell things right when you are de-karmaing me.
Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: Mongrel on July 07, 2011, 06:11:05 AM
I just looked at that negative and I don't even get why you were dinged for that post. I didn't think you were being an asshole and it was me you were talking about!
Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: Lottel on July 07, 2011, 06:44:01 AM
Oh it's just Envy.
The spelling is what hurts me.

Post by: Glames on July 08, 2011, 01:41:44 PM
I don't even know how to give karma. I don't see any available options when I click on somebody's profile here, do I have to accrue a certain amount of posts before I'm able to hand it out or something? Dang, maybe I'm missing something terribly obvious! Either way, I feel bad because lots of folk's have been nice to me since my return and I owe them.

Tyrannical! / Fossilize 'em
Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: Glames on July 08, 2011, 02:22:00 PM
Kayma, I assume I'm supposed to see those words on the karma screen or when on a user's profile? I only see two options when looking at a profile: "Who changed my karma" and "Whose karma have I changed". When I click on either it takes me to what's been changed or affected through karma but nothing there allowing for me to change others. Hmm... perhaps I just don't yet have the privilege of giving karma?
Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: Classic on July 08, 2011, 03:26:39 PM
Look at a post, directly above the number of posts a poster has (in the profile snapshot next to each post) should be the words "Tyrannical!" and "Fossilize 'em" for karma and dekarma respectively. Just above that should be the karma ratio.
Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: Glames on July 08, 2011, 03:44:32 PM
Hmm... took a example pic (while logged in of course) and it's not showing above a person's post count near their profile snapshot ... this is probably just my issue I'm guessing.

Post by: Caithness on July 08, 2011, 03:54:20 PM
They don't show up for me, either. I'm guessing there's a minimum number of posts that must be reached before you can change people's karma.
Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: Ziiro on July 08, 2011, 04:00:42 PM
Something about number of posts or time spent. It took me a while to get the ability to work with Karma, but I have it now.
Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: A≤ on July 08, 2011, 05:54:59 PM
Oh it's just Envy.

I read over Lottel's karma and what Envy dinged and

Can we just take away Envy's karma privileges?

And restrict his posting to once a day?

I may have accidentally banned him last night anyways, so.

Post by: Classic on July 09, 2011, 12:10:06 AM
Cut him some slack? A pissy dekarma is better than a pissy post. Has he done something worse than that I don't yet know about?
Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: Classic on September 05, 2011, 05:19:57 PM
Speaking of being pissy about karma and shit, should I feel bad that my last 3 karmas have come from Guild for playing in his crazy games?
I- I feel like- like he knows it's all I have that gives me self-worth. He knows and is showing pity.

Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: Classic on May 13, 2012, 08:43:42 PM
Shinra gave me a dekarma because I told him he's being saying stuff that sounds an awful lot like racist apologetics. Which is maybe deserved, because his (later) posts read like he's familiar with the concept of institutionalized racism and he's mostly misusing a few of my pet-peeve words. (e.g. using committed instead of convicted)
But his actual dekarma links to the one post where I tell him that I assume he's not racist or sexist.

Just? What? Why?
Title: Re: KARMA FIGHT!
Post by: Shinra on May 14, 2012, 02:07:52 AM
I gave you a dekarma because you tried to boil down my argument to 'Oh Shinra is just stupid', on at least three occasions in that thread.

Oh, also, you won't stop implying I'm a racist (after I asked you to in PM, no less!) because I have a more in-depth position on the topic of race in America than what I learned about understanding in tolerance in Elementary School.

My point is, your debate skills revolve around 'NEENER NEENER NEENER, I CAN'T HEAR YOU' and 'NUH-UH! THAT'S NOT TRUE BECAUSE :racist:'

I am not saying that you're just stupid. I am saying that you're saying stupid, ignorant things, and I want, very badly, for you to focus on saying smart, informed/informative things. I know you can do it, you did it in that thread!

I am not implying that you're racist, either.

because I have a more in-depth position on the topic of race in America than what I learned about understanding in tolerance in Elementary School.
Uh, Shinra? Let me explain this a little more clearly. That elementary school thing?
shit racists I have had to deal with as part of my elementary schooling have tried to peddle to me.
That line?
I'm talking about a teacher in a freakishly homogeneously white-and-monied suburban school explaining stuff about the evils and dangers of "political correctness" that I had to unlearn in high school and college. For about four years, maybe longer, I was being fed elitist and racist lines that are echoed in the word choices and some parts of your "in-depth position" on race.

For me, not being racist means taking an extra few seconds to consider how, not if, race is factoring in to my behavior and opinions.



Oh, you gave me a great line, thanks.
My point is, Shinra, your debate skills revolve around 'NEENER NEENER NEENER, I CAN'T HEAR YOU' and 'I WILL PROJECT MY INADEQUACIES ON TO YOU'

Seriously, the parts where I haven't been expressing my discomfort with your choice of words or calling you stupid for not understanding me have been "I'm not sure that's so because... I think instead that... but anyway, that's a tangent."
I am not trying to misrepresent what you're saying and I am trying to give you credit where you say something sound.
I assume that we're having trouble communicating because I need to try harder to understand you and make myself clear, because you have sometimes given me credit when I say something sound.
But I am having difficulty taking it on faith that we're meeting each other halfway in terms of effort being taken to communicate.
