Administration/Moderation Concerns?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Is the like button connected to Karma?

I notice I have 36 karma points but never record any notification about this. Only notifications have been about people rating my posts positively.
No, that's actually an error and you're supposed to give Punchy those karma points. You can do this by clicking the thumbs up on this post, selecting the number 3, and then rating positively. Punchy will thank you.

Your url above is pointing to a non-existent post, not a thread.

You want the thread, try this one. You will see that one of your posts is missing. > > > http://cambodiaexpatsonline.com/viewtop ... 57#p172557

Huh! You just edited your post. No one can access that post because it's in the Trash. Try the thread link that I posted.

The thread link you posted is fine, but I think you're seeing what you expect to see at your end, and not hearing me say it's not right at my end. Here are the messages from earlier today:

Looks reasonable, right? Okay, stay with me.

The first negative rating links to http://cambodiaexpatsonline.com/post172557.html#p172557

The second negative rating links to http://cambodiaexpatsonline.com/post173997.html#p173997

I didn't (to the best of my knowledge, although I'm fallible) delete post 173997, and yet received negative rating on it. Gonk may have edited it, he does that to keep the peace from time to time...

I personally don't care that much about karma, but it's a bit of fun on the side and I think it's wrong that puppets can give and take karma. If that's allowed, you might as well remove it as it's farcical.

I'll admit, I don't really like the karma system at all as I think it's not really necessary and too easily manipulated.

I have no idea what this "karma" system is about. I have tried to usefully contribute to this forum for years, so I end up with - 6 karma. Meanwhile total asshats like BKK Trapper get 10 karma. Obviously the system is seriously flawed, make of it what you will but as far as I can see it is completely redundant. Juansweetpotato who does little other than cut and paste irrelevant shite gets 29 karma points even though nobody even pays attention to his idiotic polls. So fuck your stupid karma system, I'm done with trying to say anything intelligent on this forum.

i edited and binned the posts in question wherein SC told the OP of the thread in question to post pics or delete the thread, and the poster with the Russian name told SC to F off ( paraphrase ).
