Refusing Karma



  • I recently received a karma point from Avatara, but do I deserve it? In my opion, no. Sixty Six posts, I've been here for hardly any time at all.
    I realise in saying this is pretty much the same as arguing with a moderator, which would, inevitably, stuff up the whole moderator / karma system.
    Is it ok to refuse karma?
    What are your thoughts on the situation?

    And, take a look at Heidel. (url="http://"http://www.AmbrosiaSW.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ubbmisc.cgi?action=getbio &UserName;=Heidel")http://www.AmbrosiaS...UserName=Heidel(/url)
    46 posts, 9 karma. Cool, yes?

    I got my first karma point (And second) not to far from your post count (And time on the boards), and so did many other members. It just seems a little unusual from the point of view of other boards. So, enjoy your karma point, you probobly deserve it. And, if you don't want it, you can redeem it for one free flame or spam on a strict board. ;)

  • You may have only been here a short time, Dusk, but you've done an excellent job so far. Your karma is deserved.

  • I agree Dusk, your karma is deserved. For helping-and trying to help-people and being a positive and contributing member of this board.

    Water doesn't have to be that deep to feed you to carnivorous fish. Hell, there's less area for you to swim if it's only 20 feet deep or so.

    You do. It's not about how long you've been here, it's about what you're doing here. You deserved a Karma point for those posts in the Tavern (I don't think I ever told youI liked the way you had Moonshadow act, did I?).
    I also think you deserve to be slapped for complaining (for no reason whatsoever that I can see), though. :p

    Basically, yes, I suppose, if the Karma point is undeserved. Which, in this case, it isn't.

    A slapping? That'd suit me just fine! Heh. Since everyone here thinks I deserve the karma I'll stop complaining.

    Sorry forge, it was a bad Cythera joke. A particular bug means that you can't go fishing because "The water isn't deep enough".

    Early one morning, late one night, two dead boys arose to fight. Back to back they faced each other, drew their swords and shot each other. The deaf man heard the noise and came, and killed the two dead boys. If you don't believe this lie is true, ask the blind man, he saw it too.

    Preci s ly what I had tried to mention before. Dusk, you've been here for almost no time (relatively speaking), but treat the board and the characters i n it as one of those that has been here since the beginning. I think it touched all of us. Heck, if I had been a mod, I probably would have g iven you a point on your second post (and no, I don't think I'm not a mod because of such things like that. Only once before have I thoug h t this of someone).

    If the s e retorts are at a l l biting, I didn't think I deserved my k a rma p oints either. And I still don't. I feel especially bad that I have the m when I have barely b e en here for the last year. :frown:

  • Thanks, :).
    I've only seen a little of your posts Theo, and as far as I can see, you deserve your karma. No need to sigh, and I doubt anyone will slap you.

    This is cythera. One of the best bits of the game(in my opinion) is going to the west coast and beating the hell out of the ruffians./me casts magical arrow on forge (did that sound nerdy? What do I care)
    dusk: Yes you deserve Karma. Everyone does(well....) Almost 50 posts in a month! How do you make over 2000 posts though? With diffuculty!
