Default Seriously... how do i get Karma???

Is there a specific guidline for when you guys give out karma? or do you look for specific criteria...????

Well it depends, but asking for karma is not definitively the way to go about it. :P

It is usually based on a matter of how much a mod felt that you contributed to a thread, the help you brought or just a general kudo.

Or, in the case of negative karma, how much of a disruptive member you have been.

Don't worry about Karma, you'll pick it up. If you're looking for the official guidelines they're here.

At first it's just if you post something that's helpful- kind of vague I know. Basically if you help people out around the forums, give your opinions, and contribute you'll get some Karma eventually. Both my times I got karma I didn't even notice until someone pointed it out to me.

On the other hand, don't ask for it. I don't think that it'll be a problem that you brought it up, but if you think that it's important to get karma to be a member of this community don't. Be helpful, enjoy yourself, and have a good time. Karma shouldn't be the reason you post, it should be a happy surprise when you do get some.

EDIT: Did somebody help already? EDIT EDIT: For some reason your post didn't show up in preview Boneguard.

Don't worry, I know you were not specifically asking for it...thus the smiley face that did not show up (weird)...but more of a general inquiry.

There's also the fact that often, someone will flag you post telling us -the staff- they think you deserve Karma. We cannot be everywhere...except FT with his ninja scorpion...so the flagging helps us a lot too.

Plus depending on which forum you post, some staffmember are stricter on what is Karma worthy then orther, in case of doubt, we discuss it amongst ourselves.

The Karma will come naturally if you're shown to be a consistently contributing member. You may not have the stuff to write an entire page of Tactica but the Mods will surely karma you at some point, for being a consistent and helpful member. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to karma'ing as each Mods has his/her set of rules when handing out Karma.

For example, Odo made a particular helpful post recently. More so than usual. So I look at his Karma Log and he hasn't been awarded one since October. So, I judged that his accumulative contributions from that time until now is more than worthy for a Karma.

Just as an example: my first Karma point came from a (fairly in depth) Battle Report but it didn't even have pictures.

I got another one for helping a new member by pointing out what I thought (and my experience had proven) about the strengths and weaknesses of certain unit choices that had relatively similar roles.

Other than personal examples, I can't add anything more than what these folks have already said.

My first point of karma was posting the fact that Dark Lances are worse against vehicles than the units our opponents end up taking against us (More crisis suits, MC's, Nobz, terminators, other 2 wound models) And was more or less a battle report where i stated that Dark Lances are now more of a mental weaponry than physical...it changes how our opponents build their lists completely.

When looking for Karma, dont try to just post tactica after tactica. Make sure nobody has done one before you (posting a 5th tactica on sentinels, for example, wont earn you a karma point unless its supremely better, but even then...) You wont always get karma for posting tacticas either, so dont post them just to get karma.

My simple advice?

Be a decent member,and if you have something that you feel is contributory, by all means share it with us. What you have to remember is, though a Mod might not instantly see what you have done, but regular members like myself might see your work and think it Karma worthy.

You can also gain Karma by doing something that benefits the Forum, or helps a sector of the forum advance, such as introducing new ideas, a new tactica for something totally under played (Half tempted to make a Tactica for Ethereals myself :P), or doing something that actually makes people think of you in only good light.

In the end, its not you who decides what is karma worthy from what you've done, its the entire forum.

Being a great scorer on the random quizzes we give can also bring about good karma. They generally require high levels of background information though, so don't think they are a cakewalk.
