A quick note on karma scores

For anyone wondering why their karma score (number in parenthesis next to their username) dropped recently - that was due to me fixing a bug.

My original implementation counted not only your comments upvotes and downvotes, but also erroneously added a score of '1' for each comment. The new scoring removes the extra point for each comment, and now reflects solely the sum of your comments' upvotes and downvotes.

how wonderful, Although I nearly had a heartattack when I saw my score go from 1300+ to 400+ :(

I'm addicted to your site and the ever urging feeling to help builders get the best builds they can. Thank you once again for an amazing site!!

IDK if it is just me but mine has seemed to have state at 0 since I joined 4-5 months ago.

The karma would increase (or decrease) if someone clicked one of the arrows on the side of your posts.
