How karma/reputation works?
Karma or reputation is a scoring system that rewards users for their contributions, collaboration and participation in the forum. The forum awards points for almost any activity undertaken. Karma enable the community to collectively identify the best (and worst) contributions. See more
What is my Karma/Reputation?
Each user has a number that represents his reputation. Since this karma system is new, an estimated calculation was made for users already registered on the forum based on their posts and replies. See your karma
Posts and comments can be voted up or down. Voting enable the community to collectively identify the best (and worst) contributions. However, votes aren't unlimited. Every time you win 50 points of karma the forum assing you a vote. You can only vote once every post or comment. You can spend your votes by voting positively or negatively posts and comments in the forum. See more
Moderators have special authority, they are community facilitators, they can edit or delete your posts or comments. In order to maintain our community status quo, moderators reserve the right to remove any content and any user account for any reason at any time. Most of the time, moderation will be limited to correcting small details in posts or comments, improve grammar, fix occasional details in the code, fix links, etc. See more
We have adopted the format used in Github to create posts and comments. Using this format you can add images, tables, links, code, etc. See more
Reply via E-mail [update]
Now you can answer posts and comments by replying their e-mail notifications. We're going to test this functionality all this week let us know if you have trouble.
We hope you enjoy all these new features. If you want to implement new features or improve something, remember that the forum source code is published on Github.
