Should GLP members with BAD KARMA be allowed to give out KARMA points?
I think a lot of the negative karma being given out here on GLP is coming from members who are already in the red themselves and just don't care.

What if...
1)You have to have GOOD karma to give karma out.
2)Every time you give out a BAD karma you will use one of your GOOD karma points.
3)Members with over 50 BAD karma points are temporarily banned, which will remove 10 or so of there BAD points for when they are un-banned.

*Members are rating threads by using Karma points, this is not good.. Use the 5 stars to rate a thread.
*Members are giving bad karma to those who they disagree with, this is not good. Argue the point with them in the topic, try to disprove them or make your point or just move along.

I think this would help to clean the Karma system up a bit and cut down on bad karma being given out to good members for petty or irrelevant reasons.

I think it would be less discrimination and more of a penalization.

Good karma points are rewarded, so why not penalize bad karma?

I agree to a certain extent. I think that the bad karma I have received for this thread, I can hopefully make up for by being a good productive member who adds to the topics being discussed. Or I can find copyright violations, lol.

And probably, most of the people who give out red karma to people who truely do not deserve it, probably have a lot of red themselves. And therefore would not be able to give it out if this modification to the karma system happens.

 There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory mentioned, which states that this has already happened.

Re: Should GLP members with BAD KARMA be allowed to give out KARMA points?
I just realized something.

It is my opinion that Trinity, possibly, does not care too much about the negative karma's going around or how they are being abused. At the moment at least.

Why?

Because the karma system was implemented for one main reason... to get GLP members to police each other better, to help GLP stay clean, legal and online!

Good Karma has been set up to help:
1) Cut down on copyright violations, which can be very bad for GLP.
2) Cut down on death threats, web hacking threats and threats of illegal activity.
3) Encourage unique topics to be posted and hopefully be important enough to be pinned.

From what we know so-far, Bad Karma really has no purpose and is ripe for abuse from members.

Maybe if there are Karma neighborhoods.

Beverly Hills is 801+

Upper East Side 651 - 800

Suburbia 151 - 650

Urbania 0 - 150

Ghetto -1 to -25

Fridge Box -26 and under


All classes can vote down only those classes immediately above them and below them. They can vote up posts in any neighborhood.

Example: Ghetto cannot vote down Suburbia and above, they can vote up anybody.
Suburbia can only vote down Upper East Side and Urbania. They can vote up anybody.

That way only those who live in and around your neighborhood can throw stones. Violations are unto their own.


Just an idea. Maybe it sucks, maybe not.

Giving bad karma should cost the person some personal karma. What you give always comes back to you.

i propose something really effective:
bumping your own threads and messages within minutes or even seconds should give a day or a week of instaban on these fools instead.

also not using search functionality and putting up dupe fakery all day long and duplicating stuff and dividing peoples attentions and disrupting discussions into a bazillion different threads all about the very same topic needs to stop.


thank you.
