Just a question...
« on: February 01, 2013, 12:25:02 AM »
Hi.
What does it mean when I see [Great Post] under someone's name etc?
And why am I always the oly one who doesn't have that? I don't think all
My posts suck, or that everyone else's are 'great'.
Just wondering about that...

You never see "great post" under your own name.  Other people click under your name on "great post" if your post helped them out and you took time to create it. You are new here so have not gotten many posts in, but it was a good question many other people might be wondering about too, so I will give you a click under your name on " great post" and give you your first karma point.

Clicking 'Great Post' adds 1 to that person's karma. Karma is used to 'reward' people who write posts that really stand out for some reason. We used to have bad karma as well, but removed it after some members decided to see how much bad karma they could acquire...
