This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. 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.
Are you for real? GONK knows so therefore I should know too.
Yeah, right. Like he's going to msg me immediately to tell me "Hey, gav's in myanmar".
You really are self-centered. It's not all about you gav/cam/ron/Wanker!
As for which of your accounts to ban, do you really think we should give you the choice? Get real.
With . . . without. And, who'll deny, it's what the fighting's all about.
This is a long thread and being a relative newbie, I dunno whether it is has already been canvassed before but is there any merit in keeping the up and down karma system restricted for members only? In other words, members cannot give karma to mods and similarly mods cannot give members karma. Of course post commentary can still go both ways.
Seems to me mods have a unique role and enough on their plate keeping tabs on things to have to concern themselves with disaffected members that want to give them negative karma and commentary that way. Equally I think members place more emphasis on whether they get karma from a mod (good or bad). In a sense, is there not a bit of conflict of interest being a mod with the power to control conversations and threads yet also participate as a general member?
I dunno if what I'm suggesting is too left field/radical or even if that would have any appeal to the mods? Anyway, I thought I would run the idea up the flagpole.. shoot away if required..
I've found some users would go through old posts and try to dish out negative Karma as a reaction to you giving them negative karma. You can't really do much to combat that while leaving the Karma system in place. I suppose you could limit the amount of negative Karma a person gives out or limit the amount that can be directed to one specific person. Maybe this is all a pain in the ass so just removing it is the reasonable solution.
I guess we shouldn't really worry about a Karma rating too much anyway, not like we can redeem it for value. I've grown past worrying about my small karma and have found medication for my karma-ile disfunction thank you very much.

The negative karma button disappeared. Positive vibrations
Were you planning on dishing out some neg karma?
It has been removed as some people like to give other members dozens of neg karma in a row. Childish innit?
Let's be fair about this. I downvoted like 4 posts that a certain moderator posted over the last two weeks. Although I have multiple accounts, I never downvoted a post from more than one account, as that would not be sporting. Nor did I "mass downvote" dozens of his posts willy nilly just to stir shit. If you're accusing me of that, provide evidence.
The thing that got fluky was that I would downvote this moderator's post, and then a few minutes later the downvote would disappear. I didn't even know that the moderators could tinker with the vote scoring like that, but apparently they can secretly remove downvotes on their own posts if they think the downvotes are "unjustified." Then I would re-downvote the same post, and a few minutes later, the downvote disappears again. Downvote it again, it disappears again. That probably did happen about a dozen times.
This particular moderator has, over the past few months, downvoted a number of my posts. I didn't think were particularly "justified," but also didn't really care about it, of course I didn't have the power to improve my posts' scoring by removing the downvotes.
I don't think your upvote/downvote system was broken but I accept your decision to remove the downvoting, it's probably for the best. There were also threads derailed by posters demanding to know why they were downvoted, and in the interest of making things friendlier it's probably not a bad idea to get rid of downvoting.
here's a sock down voting mods posts an admitting to having various accounts .
and he s still here??
get rid of karma,
bring in a LIKE button, which signify's you like the post nothing to do with the poster!
