    Looks very interesting.. .Now, if that list would be made like a open/close (dropdown) window, and the whole system would memorize the amount of thanks in total, it would be really neat...

    Oh God, no, any kind of karma system is the lamest that could be added to the any forum.

    Over there.
    Yeah, I agree with what laggy said. Like a trading rep list (positive/negative) would be good in the Trading Forum. If there is one already in place, I'm sorry, I never ever checked that forum. >_____

    It does seem interesting. But does the person being thanked get anything than just thanks?

    I actually think some sort of karma system here would improve the posts around here (which is badly needed). [​IMG]

    Not really, you see democracy just work for some few things, internet forums is not one of those.

    A stupid 4chan joke gets 53 thanks or positive votes or karma points or whatever you wanna call it and a long post that is actually helpful doesn't get any because no one bothered reading it. And don't get me started with Florida's karma points, lol.

    The opposite, giving negative points to stupid comments -and hiding them after X number of negative votes- is a better idea, but again, there's already a report post function for that. Also, isn't the forum kinda bulky already without that bar under every post? I'd rather use that space -if necessary- to put google ads and help to cover the cost of keeping the site running, but that wont happen, GBAtemp is too cool for that [​IMG].

    Karma systems never work. People give karma to their friends on every post and/or give bad karma to people they just don't like. I mean, look at our rating system for games. Barbie games have 100 votes with about 98% rating.

    Karma doesn't work here, but it did work on gbatmw, where the best uploaders had the most karma (which was me, at one time.......). I would like to see a hidden (not on every page) battle system like 1emulation has. That would rock.
