Karma- what is it?

Please, what is karma and how do we get karma>3?

Many thanks!

A very question similar question was asked on the same day: Karma- how to get points

Thanks. Complete newbie here.

Each action you do on forum like asking a question, replying on question, voting etc. you get some points. Points=karma. Why is this important? To protect forum from spam. You can’t for example upload files if you don’t have a karma>3. This prevents that forum administrators know that you are human and not some kind of program that would just upload files to forum and full the disks. There is also for example karma>500 to have a delete/update other users posts, to prevent chaos of everybody changing posts all-over. I know this “karma” is actually little bit an obstacle to newcomers, but sadly we live in the word full of spam… Few months ago administrators removed this “karma” and forum was flood with spam to non-usable state. So to protect against spam, karma was reestablished.

Administrator can also upgrade karma by his decision. For example in your case it can approve you karma>3. Probably this will happen when administrator will read this post.

You didn’t really specify what is your original problem… Would you like to upload files? If so, you can also use other public services to do this, for example:

Only images (e.g. print-screen): http://imgur.com/ (no need for registration)

All files: https://www.dropbox.com/ (need to register)

or any other…

Thakns for the answer!

It is also worth noting the AskBot forum threads: Why is Karma named Karma? and Can I remove the word “Karma” and use instead the word “Reputation”?.
