I think the feature was bad karma in itself... :'(

and the moderators decided it's kind of useless...I'm guessing....I think everyone here is karmatically AOK ;)

It was an experimental feature that we decided to remove because some people were "smiting" others too much. Patrick and I, as Admins, can see everything relating the karma and certain people were smiting too much which we felt did not coincide with the happy helpful forum we wished to have. If there was only a way to give people positive karma, we would have kept the feature. I can give you an honorary title other than "member" for you all your troubles if you'd like?

good idea. I didn't like the implication of that feature.

I couldnt get the new member title to work properly. Even though I gave you a new title, the old "member" title was still showing below it. I will try again later.
