I've seen this on many forums already and so I thought it would be nice to have something like it here: the possibility to increase or decrease the karma/reputation of a member. Anyone can do it to everyone else (not to themselves of course). They can change the karma of any member by 1, they can only do this once for every member but they can change as many member's karma's as they want to. It's a good way for other people to see if the person they're 'looking at' is trustworthy/nice/etc. Banned or suspended members can't be voted on. Staff members are no exception to the rule and thus cannot increase their own karma or change someone else's karma by more than 1. The other thing, thanking posts, is also quite useful for others to see if said post was of any use to others. Likewise, members can say whether they liked the post or not and then other people see something like '4 out of 7 members found this post useful'. This function can also be used together with the karma function, as in when a member 'likes' a post (makes me think of Facebook, actually ) the karma of the poster increases by 1, et vice versa. As with the karma, posts can't be liked if they have been removed (obviously) or if the poster was banned. Both functions aren't really a necessity, because after a while you get to know who you should trust and who you shouldn't, but it's always better when the way you get to know that is easier and faster. P.S.: If these functions get included, Tempbot should have a set amount of karma. Otherwise it would probably have the highest amount of karma on the temp Offtopic: Nice 4,000th post, no?
