What is Karma?

Karma is a member driven moderation system where positive and negative points (Karma) can be given to each members by other members.  To the left of each post is a box containing member information.  Inside that box are two links [Applaud] and [Smite].  To give positive Karma to another member click Applaud, to give negative Karma click Smite.  You can't keep hammering Applaud or Smite because there is a delay built in where you have to wait a bit before you click again.

How do I change my theme?

Mobile and Tablet users, in particular, may want to change their theme (the look) for the site in order to get a better experience with the site.  To do this go to your Profile then from the menu Modify Profile choose Look and Layout.   Current Theme is the first entry on this page.  Click (change) next to your current theme  and it will show you the available themes.  You can then choose a theme.  You can also preview the theme before you choose it.

How many times must I prove I'm human?

You are asked for verification at least once and at most twice. 

1.) If you register without using a social network. 
2.) The first post you make on the boards. 

The reason for the 2nd verification is because members that register using a social network are not asked for verification when they register.

I changed my theme. Now it looks more like my SS winter theme.  :)

Is Babz doing a "Babz wants" this week? I have a few that would fit the horror request.

I added a modification to the site that changes the theme automagically if someone enters it on a mobile device so hopefully everyone will be happy.

I haven't gotten a Wants email from Babz this week.  We'll should be recording a new show this weekend. 

She also wants me to interview someone.  Anyone up to doing an Arena Radio podcast?

I volunteer Mohammad because he thought Sean Penn did a better job with "Milk" than Mickey Rourke did in "The Wrestler"...

Lmao. Jesus, my apologies, Sean. I was getting my years mixed up, I'm usually a gun at this. For some odd reason, I was convinced The Wrestler was made in 2003... Hence why I said that Penn should have won the Oscar for Mystic River. I haven't seen Milk, and I can probably agree that he won just because of the subject matter. Again, my bad.

I changed to SMF Curve and all the text is now visible though my only comment is the darker and lighter text colors are to close in shades and hard to distinguish between especially in the "Welcome to Writers Arena" at the top of the home page.

Probably just me being picky.

That would explain it. Lol. I'm laughing so much right now. That's okay, though. I'm still volunteering you. =)

Have to say I really do have bad "Karma".

Other members with around the same amount of posts have 5 or 6 karma points.

I'm still on 2. Boo Hoo Hoo.  :(

NO ONE LIKES ME.

Just kidding.

Hey Michael,

I just noticed I received another Karma point and was wondering if there is any way to check where it came from ?? Does it show up where I received it from ?

That would be a good way to start arguments.  Let people know where their Karma points come from.
