I looked at your posts and could see nothing wrong. Perhaps someone hit the '-' symbol by mistake. At any rate, my '+' hit put you back at 0.

Little Rickie, here is a post from another topic on this forum about karma. Please dont worry about karma. you didnt do anything wrong.

Karma... Also not based on skill as a beekeeper. Here is the low down and as an FYI we have been thinking about removing this.

The karma system is one of those neat little things that contributes to the community aspect of a website by empowering you to give feedback to those who deserve it. It is a tool you can use to show appreciation or disapproval for anything that another member has done.

Maybe you posted for help on how to do something and got such a swift and helpful response from another member that you want to show appreciation in more than just words. You can applaud them by giving them Karma. Perhaps another member responded to that same post negatively offering no help and unnecessarily making you look foolish when you genuinely needed help. You can smite them by take away Karma. However, should you smite someone, you should follow that up with a message to an admin or moderator and let them know just in case there is a larger issue.

Please use the karma system responsibly. Don't abuse it by artificially inflating someone's karma or waging a personal war against someone by reducing their karma unnecessarily. If abuse is detected the karma system will be shut off as it is not a necessity.

The karma controls are located in the top, right of each post we make in the forum. The '+' sign adds karma and the '-' takes it away. You cannot adjust your own karma.

I hope this helps.

Thanks
Hungry Bear
