Karma
 
Think the objective/purpose of giving karma is somewhat nebulous. For the most part I understand it to mean showing appreciation to fellow members for recipes shared, etc. &, that's a good thing.

What I'd like to see when someone posts a recipe etc. when any one feels they would like to try it - or it appeals to them, ask that the "positive" reply or comments to the recipe be posted ON the board. When someone posts/shares a recipe & the responses read out zero (particularly when the post is viewed 100's of times) & very few respond, it makes one feel no one is interested. Why not give the kudos ON the board rather than a personal Karma comment.

Karma responses like have a nice day & tag you're it, are confusing as to what Karma is all about. Also hoping this will not be a competitive sport to see how many points one has racked up. Do recall re Karma, someone can take away from one's efforts, by submitting a negative. Don't understand what that is all about. Think it should be about the "positive." Again, hope this is not a competition for points.

I was also wondering what this "karma" thing is exactly all about...http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/...ticons7/39.gif

Hoping this system will be more clearly defined & redefined.

Cool Andy, it solved a lot of mystery!! Thanx for the info!!http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/...ticons7/11.gif

i respond both on the boards and by giving karma (if i'm able to)to show my appreciation.

I appreciate this forum in that we can exchange thoughts/ideas/recipes in a polite manner. But it breaks my cooking heart to see members post recipes to share over & over & there's no response with hundreds of views. All I'm trying to say is - re Karma - nice idea - when members share recipes, please take a moment to post appreciation ON the board. Zero responses, or very few responses, make me want to rethink sharing recipes & experiences. Karma reading Have a nice day & Tag you're it, just doesn't make sense to me.

I understand what you are saying Mish.
I've had some recipes posted that got no response and wondered if it might be something that wasn't interesting and didn't know whether to share others that were similar.
Most of the time though, there are lots of comments to say, "sounds good" or "maybe add this or that".
I am guilty of the same thing sometimes myself. From this day on, I promise to make a post to any recipes that sounds like something that I will be making or if I have tried it, search and find the origianl post and make my comment on what the verdict of the recipe was here at home.
Thank you for bringing this to light, as I'm sure, like me, a lot of us just don't think sometimes on commenting when copying and saving the recipes.

I think it's not just recipes, but also nice posts as well. Karma is positive, so how ever one uses it is up to them I guess. :smile:

urmaniac13 09-16-2005 09:33 PM

I think Mish has a good point! Just like everything else in life, if/when you appreciate something or someone, express your feeling and let it be known!!http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/...oticons7/3.gif
