Are you addicted to Karma? Do you have a stash of it here? Does it give you a thrill knowing that you have more? Do you wish you were rolling in it like other members of the community? Don't vote up on your own supply... account... thingy.

I like Karma, but I really just like asking questions! :) I have always asked a lot of question outside of this community. So I think I may be addicted to this site. :)

Karma Addiction is a physical and/or psychological dependency to Karma. I've heard of addiction to many things, but Karma Addiction is a new one =0p... I have visions of Karma/Drug Dealers supplying their addicts/junkie customers on the streets. How does one intake Karma into their system? Do they cut it up with a razor, then snort it up their nostrils? Do they roll it up like a joint, and smoke it? Are there 12-Step Programs for Detox? What's the street price of Karma? I could become a High Tech Karma Dealer ...

Karma comes in many forms, and can be powdered with a pestle and mortar and impaled. However, the most common way is to roll it into a cigarette. Karma is measured in grams, and at the average street price of $1.50 a gram, although it takes only about 1/10 of a gram to actually get high.

I can't quit Lockergnome.net anytime I want, but I can quit karma and have done so already. I voluntarily had my karma reduced by 8k or 10k some time back to enjoy some "quiet time" on page 2 of the user list. Of course, my activities here meant that it's slowly crept upwards again, but it was a nice vacation on page 2 for a little while.

I see, ageekmom. You say you can quit karma anytime you want to, yet you still had much more than typical... just saying...

I can't quit answering questions, I can quit karma. I thought that was pretty clear above. :)

We welcome you back to page 2 anytime. :P

haha... I'll consider it if I hit 10k again before Christmas.

I'm quite happy with what I have now. But, I'm hoping I'll make it to 2000 soon. xD

So... you like Karma, but not that much. You aren't addicted.

(Oct 05 '10 at 20:24) HHBones HHBones's gravatar image

No...Not entirely. :(...I just like answering/asking questions. xD

Karma is awesome, it also means that people are happy with what I posted and I was of some help :). I think the site is to help more the community than winning a keyboard, and Chris has done an amazing job creating it and all of you answering some questions that where really helpful to me!

I agree. Well said.

Karma honestly doesn't doing anything in my opinion. If there were no Karma points on this site, I would still use it with as much enthusiasm that I currently have. Some people just rank people by their Karma when it's their post content that counts.

But Karma is also a system that sort of lets the community choose moderators that they think are best. It's sort of a democracy, where you can pledge your vote to someone by voting up on their answers and giving them Karma, and therefore, power.

Karma isn't the reason I do this. My main reason is that I love to talk tech to people (I'm trying amateur tech blogging), and this gives me an outlet to express my opinions and further my knowledge.

I agree, but Karma is, as I observed to TechJohnson, much more than that.

(Oct 07 '10 at 16:58) HHBones HHBones's gravatar image

I doesn't bother me about Karma, I mean how is it really going to benefit my life in way? They're just points, although I do enjoy helping people out.
