A question about Karma

Hello everyone,

I'm one of the amateur cooks on this forum that is usually asking questions.
Soooo, I'll ask another one. I haven't been giving karma or rating threads, mainly b/c I haven't figured out how to do it yet. Is it considered rude not to give karma if I get a good answer to my question? Do many of the people here pay attention to these things? What do you do with karma? I'm guessing its like praise? Oops, thats four questions!

Welcome Gary.
Here is how this works.........Don't listen to MJ, he's new here.
Whenever I make a post.............give me karma. My karma button is the only one that works here, so don't bother with the others. Yes, it is rude not to give me karma when I post, I will be heartbroken.

I'm gonna take a wild guess here, that I don't need to worry TOO much about not giving karma.

Hey wasabi,

Thanks for your warm, helpful, considerate, intelligent, thoughtful, and somewhat humorous welcome to the forum!
You are a credit to the site.

I gave you some karma for good humor.

Just kidding, nice talking to ya.

gary, it's really up to you on who you give karma to and what for. Personally, I give it sometimes for a hearty laugh or a helpful answer to a question (hint hint), even if it isn't a question I asked, or for appreciation of another member or really any reason I like.
As far as rating threads, I asked this question once and didn't get much of a response, so I assume not many do it.

I'm the second "dork". I stole the idea from Ken when he posted this.....

Quote:
Here are some much easier guidelines.

1. Find any post by Ken.
Click on "Give Karma"
Click on "Add to Reputation" and include a comment on how witty and
amusing the post was.
2. Repeat # 1 as often as possible.

3. Never give Karma to Alix.
