^ahhh... found the improper permission setting.  Now anyone who has more than 6 posts (or is a mature member) will be able to update Karma.

I cannot see applaud or smite. So is it 6 "posts" or 6 karma points? ;)

Is there a starting negative Karma, or did I somehow manage to piss someone off already?

I just looked at your 4 posts. Nothing bad about them.

I'll even you out at +1 to bring you flat.

I was wondering how the karma thing worked, I am very glad I read this post. I am making a effort to read all the pinned posts as before I thought I was getting bad karma from not posting in the proper area. or not signing a letter. Just kind of bums me out a little then thinking that people did not like what I posted then as I did have problems with the verification questions and had to refresh many times.  I almost gave up joining this board because of it.
Oh well. C'est la vie

As you mentioned above, such is life.   
+1 for you for researching

It's all about attitude. Make people feel good/ etc, karma will probably go up. Come across as excessively negative, it will probably go down.

If it goes down, how about asking why... You are likely to have some of the people tell you why.

If you don't care why, don't ask.

UPDATE BY TRATHOR (7/21/14)
Hey guys,

As we grow, so does the forum have to evolve.  I'll make a new locked sticky that outlines details of how Karma works, and leave this one open for discussion on it, but here are a few updates:

 - Good Karma:  This makes people feel great.  Please give out good karma freely. 

 - Bad Karma (smite):  Be aware that many people are sensitive to this, and if you are going to give a point of Bad Karma, try to keep these things in mind:
    - Don't give away more than one bad point per 'point', that's just bad mojo. 
    - If you give bad Karma, you should be able to articulate in your mind why you have that negative point.  Not saying you have to give it, but many people want to know so they can help improve their Karma. 
    - Try to not give bad Karma when you are angry.  You can always take five minutes/ something else first, and see if you still feel bad Karma is warranted. 

Bad Karma has a function, let's just be aware of the implications.

Is there a way to limit the Neg karma, where you can only Smite a post once?
Vyvyan: What's a good thing for a hangover?
Mike: Drinking heavily the night before.

I'm assuming there's a minimum karmic level to see the karma buttons. (If not, I'm blind.  If so, I need to be more amusing and post more! :) )
