What do you do with your karma?

Due largely to kitchenelf (for which many thanks), I seem to have accumulated some karma. I've checked for karma in the faqs but there are no matches. What does one do with karma? Do I just keep it as it makes me feel wanted and popular?

Yes it is just for your own personal satisfaction. It is just another way for members to show their appreciation to you.

I find that it tends to show certain things about the person with more karma rather than less. Their effort in this community, the knowledge they share, and those sorts of things.

Its not for showing anger. It was to show YOU that your post was not appreciated. If we were angry we would let you know it in a different way.

Ya know, karma is just a nice warm fuzzy when I'm having a bad day. It's nice that the person's name is beside the karma so I can think of them and thank them in my head and heart.

Public Service Announcement!

If you need to give out karma to others before you can give karma to someone you specifically want to reward, the moderators/site helpers will allow you to giive karma to them. Please give karma to the moderators/site helpers in alphabetical order.

Just another unselfish service of your admin team.
