Gotta Ask About the Green Dots

Ok, It is driving me nuts... on your profile page, what are those little green dots???? And why do I have so few of them compared to other people? Does it mean that I am a meanie or something?

Just wondered, I pretty much figured out the answers to my other questions in regards to this forum (like what ISO means because someone else asked!)

Please fill me in on the green dot mystery!

Its related to your karma. The more karma you have the nicer things it will say about you. Wave your cursor over it and see what it says about you.

The karma adds up fast. Keep smiling.

ISO stands for 'In Search Of' and is used whensomeone is looking for a specific recipe. e.g. "ISO Beef Stew Recipe"

lol. Sattie, thanks! I think it's a black dot because this person had no karma himself. So he had no karma to give.
