I am also not understanding the purpose of this karma button, I think it's unnecessary also.

I love the fact that TQS was brave enough to try a new format. We all have a learning curve on this process.

Thanks for all the help on Karma. I do like the thank you button a lot.

A Woo Hoo button would be great on articles and topics that we like. Kind of a "Like" button on Facebook.

Humm. John, what do you think. Woo Hoo sounds very good to me. B)

Have an excellent Turkey day all of my TQS buddies. I have a lot to be thankful for this year. :)

Some may think the karma thing is 'cute'. However it's unnecessary, even possible offensive for some with strong religious beliefs that are not tied in with this religion-specifc practice or principle. I wouldn't mind if you took it off. The 'thank you' is nice.

I'm not keen on this 'karma' thing. I think it's unnecessary.
But I love the 'thank you' button.
Generally speaking: Please, please, please, keep everything simple. My time is limited and I'm already struggling to keep in touch. :(

Well, something for everyone. Several votes here for not liking it, there could be others who feel differently. It's one of those things I will probably not pay much attention to.

IMHO....I understand the intent of Karma...but I feel it can lead to unintended unhappy feelings when
used here in such a widely received forum. I don't think it belongs here. It is unnecessary !! Where
as a nice "Thank you or a "Like" or a "Thumbs up" Carries only positive thought and encouragement.
I don't think it improves anything here and plan to not use it . IMHO :)

Hmmm.... I do like philosophical musings. My guess is that karma, a philosophical concept in several eastern religions (bhuddism, hinduism) is something affected by one's actions and is a sort of universival phenomena. Good actions bring on good karma and vice versa. "Selflessness" is another concept in those religions, it relates to an act that expects no recognition. For example, when you "like" something on facebook, other people can see that you liked it and you may receive some self satisfaction from that recognition. In contrast, bestowing good karma points brings the bestower no recognition and is therefore a "selfless" act. Hopefully we will not see much smiting or giving of negative karma points because I think most quilters are kind and generous people and would not behave in a way to make others want to smite them. ;-)

Well we could just ignore it an hope it goes away :whistle: .

The 'thank you' button is good, other ones could be 'ditto/I second that opinion/I agree' as well as 'like'.

I much prefer a "like" button like we have on Facebook (which we can do on the community page). I see no reason for giving anyone negative Karma. Much better to ignore something negative than to contribute to stirring up trouble. I wish TQS would rethink this option.

Well I could definitely live without the Karma feature. We are not the kind of people to be abusive or deliberately unhelpful here. I like the thank you button too, that works for me. :)
