Sei: I used the term "high-bullshit" twice today.  I expect I will derive enjoyment from it for months, and perhaps even years, to come.
Excellent.  I definitely owed you something for co-opting "Mormos."

Starting a useful thread.

People ought to make use of it more often.

It's more work than clicking a link, typing a description, and hitting enter/a button.  The lack of convenient history sucks too.

I know we're trying to avoid showing postcount and karma for some reason or other, but it'd be sort of nice if we could still have karma buttons, even if the karma score is only accessible from within a user's profile.

1) Is bringing back karma even an option logistically?
2) What are the downsides and upsides of karma?
   a) It's a little mean like highschool cliquery.
   b) It gives newbies an at-a-glance idea of how respected a poster's opinion is.
   c) It gives us a reward system for good content.
   d) ???
   e) Profit!
3) Postcount: All it does is encourage spam.
   a) There is no option b.

We already see postcount in people's profiles, and I'm not saying I want it brought back near avatars.  I brought it up as I am under the impression that nuking karma, and restricting postcount and user groups ("custom title"?) to user profiles were part of the same (type of) decision.  It was likely a stab at getting each post taken on its own merit and not that of its poster or history.  Taken by who, I have no god damned idea.

As far as I'm concerned karma is a less intrusive way of going "lol yeah".  If you seriously need a numerical score of how many times it happens to you than congratulations, you've managed to be more self-absorbed than I am.

No, seriously, congratulations.  That's a feat.

As far as I'm concerned, :wat: karma is a way for me to confirm that you all lack good taste. That I don't have a million karma all of the time proves it.

The upside to karma is that it's a relatively easy way to praise someone about something good they've done. While I'm very willing to karma somebody for something that entertains me, the extra effort needed to post in this thread makes my praising people for writing stuff I enjoy has become much, much rarer.
I still :wuv: youse guys.

I'll level it out by saying I loved his post, achieving karmic neutrality. BUT WHY DID YOU LOCK IT.

Because I was going to blast him for his initial position, apparently.

But yeah, I don't know who actually locked it. Just that they stink.

Someone who's cool and knows how to press the right buttons will unlock it, I'm sure.

Don't you know that Sharkey's apathetic mandate is usually law around these here parts?
