No edit function on here, so I wanted to add beside that function missing, user subscription service ( a fee to use this site?)

The subscription service is the ability to subscribe to topis and be notified when posts are made. In vBulletin the system shows you all the threads you are subscribed to inside the member control panel.

You can choose to get one email per day, one per week, etc. for your subscriptions rather then an email each time one has activity (posts).

So basically it is a more robust system to manage what you want notifications about...

The karma system is will not be rolled out right away. It takes some time to setup and tune the system to fit our community. Basically it works on a system where members earn "karma power" by the number of posts they have, how long they have been a member, the amount of karma they have earned etc. The exact equation how karma power is earned might be published, but we might have to keep it a secret so members don't try and work the system just to earn more power.

You get karma by others rewarding good posts, etc. It's a way to promote those who contribute in a positive way. I'll try and think of some fun things to do with karma like the ability to trade them in for a custom user title, more private message space, a bigger avatar and maybe even some t-shirts at some point.

I have some other fun ideas but I hve to keep some of them private to so I can announce cool new stuff later too! right?

amber - you are right about the no functions for members in this forum - it's just not worth going and doing for no longer than it will be up and running.


Andy - I love the idea of getting e-mails once a day or once a week, etc. My inbox can really get bogged down - especially when we are playing a game!!

Thanks so much for the explanations.

"Karma Power?" This a joke, right? Points for being positive? Andy, you don't understand Karma, do you?

Well the system also allows for giving negative karma also, but I have seen that abused, so I don't see the benefit of the negaitve karma.

I meant karma in the real sense, not the computer sense. Guess I have a few things to learn.

karma power is a game that comes on a VB Board - it's not Andy's game, he didn't make it up.
