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.

Forgive me if I'm being stupid, but I'm a little confused (still relatively new to the forum)

Looking at a user's reputation on this forum, how is this worked out? I would assume, reputation is earned, on the forum as with life...

Then I see this and just don't understand...

But for reference, here is my own...

Again, apologies if I'm being stupid, but is there something obvious I have missed?

I'm not sure what any of it means, I think it has to do with other posters appreciating your contributions and pressing the "like" button. You at least don't have anyone giving you "hates" like you can see I got about 52 times or so. It's all swings and roundabouts.

That was my thinking of how it worked, but apparently the person I screen-shotted (is that a word?!) originally did not have any post to like...

That's about right. You can give members Karma points if you like their posts or find them helpful. Mr Bingham has negative karma, but that's a 'legacy' feature, and giving people negative karma isn't an option now, so anyone you see with negative karma would have been on CEO for a while.

And I believe the account that you screenshotted is just a 'karma queen' account that someone has taken over to give karma to fellow members who take the time to start a new topic on CEO, and it's just a very small way we show appreciation for people in the community being extra proactive and starting new topics.
