How lame: posting at +1

forged (206127) writes | more than 11 years ago

The Courts 14

Whatever happened to me, I'm posting at +1 instead of my regular +2.

This kind of happened overnight, for whatever reason only known to the admins (and even that point remains to be proved :) Of course I checked my preferences, and I did post with +1 Karma bonus. I wasn't meta-moderated, nor did I moderate anyway: that was disabled by the admins a long time ago. So I really don't have the slightest idea...

Anyone else shares the same experience ?

I think it's a bug. (1)

sulli (195030) | more than 11 years ago | (#5093534)

Now the form has a "No Karma Bonus" choice, which is different from the old "No Score +1 Bonus." Yet it doesn't do anything. I definitely think it's a bug (these do seem to happen with slashcode upgrades).

Sourceforge bug number (1)

I've submitted 669027 [sourceforge.net] .

You're posting at +1. And so am I....

I wonder if the change to 'No Karma Bonus' means they removed the karma cap? or atleast increased it. maybe we might start posting at +3 or something.

Haha, posting at +3, that would be nice. But to gte back to the topic, posting at +1 isn't normal: read Jamie's comments in the bug I opened earlier on Sourceforge (url is somewhere else in this journal). Seems surprising to him also.

I always post at +1. (1)

Chacham (981) | more than 11 years ago | (#5095468)

I always post at +1. Though I view at +2. And it's strange, everything is empty.

Chacham (981) | more than 11 years ago | (#5095528)

Weird. Slashdot, News for weirdos.

Hmm.. Though it may be time to change back to posting at +2, since most of my comments are in journals anyway.

forged (206127) | more than 11 years ago | (#5095857)

Heh, strange indeed. Anyway, it doesn't really matter... Still it's annoying. But, fear not, you go right through the crap when I read your comments, since I boost the scores of the people who like me :)

Chacham (981) | more than 11 years ago | (#5097410)

Heh.

The only mod I have is -4 for funny.

Same here (1)

Began last night

Change (1)

isorox (205688) | more than 11 years ago | (#5099672)

Dumb change, should have made karma +1 by default. I guess noone would have noticed though.

Go to preferences and change it to +1, -1 or -6, if you want.

tried today and.. (1)

kipple (244681) | more than 11 years ago | (#5113020)

I was posting at +2, as usual. Have you got it fixed?

Re:tried today and.. (1)

forged (206127) | more than 11 years ago | (#5113225)

Yes, it's been fixed in the meantime. Cheers !
