Just a question...
« on: February 01, 2013, 01:25:02 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...
All the best,

Sampson

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.

I'll give him a click too. :)

"... it doesn’t really matter who is removing your civil liberties, whether it is being done by a democratic government, a kleptocracy, a dictatorship or even the green police. When your civil rights are gone, they’re gone, and you really are in trouble, no matter how good the cause." --UK journalist Anthony Harrington, "Peak Oil and Collapse Scenarios," QFinance, September, 2011

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...


From a friend: Benjamin Franklin once said that beer is proof that God loves us.
I'm of the opinion that Redheads are proof that, contrary to popular belief, Satan also loves us.
