In probably a week’s time, we would be rolling out the new Karma system – a new way to identify and reward the stars of DesiDime and make the forum a more helpful place to be when one goes shopping..
Answer: Karma is a measurement on how much other DesiDimers trust you. And how helpful you have been to the community. Karma is measured by “Karma points” which will be visible on each and every user profile page. Karma points simply denote your contribution to the entire community and how you have helped people save money.
Answer: On registering at DesiDime, you get 20 karma points from DesiDime. (Existing users will get 20 Registration Karma points too) Once registered at DesiDime, the best way to gain karma points is to post great deals and help members in the community. You will not get karma point on simply posting deals or comments. You cannot give karma to yourself. (How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.)
Other users will vote on your post/deals to gain or lose karma. Once you have given Karma to a user, you can’t give Karma points to him again until you have given Karma to sufficient users
Note: Dont try to acquire Karma points. Post great deals, Help others to find great deals or guide them in buying the right stuff, and let Karma points simply be a reminder of your legacy.
Answer: DesiDime will reward you with 20 karma points per FPD.
Answer: There will be 11 new Levels/Badges up for grabs based on your Karma points….
Your Karma Points power dictates how much karma points can you give to other users.
Answer: You will need a minimum number of Karma Points to reach the next Level. For example, One needs 100 karma points to become a Deal Cadet, 15,000 Karma points to become Deal Major and 5,00,000 Karma points to be the ultimate Deal President.
Answer: Negative Karma points can only be given by users above Level 5. Each and every Negative karma points requires a well defined reason and would also be moderated. Dont worry, Good karma always stays with you.
Answer: Only When a user reaches level 5 (i.e when he becomes Deal Major).Use it wisely. “Because with great power comes great responsibility “
Answer: Sadly No. Our system will automatically find your karma points from your interaction so far within the community. We will provide more details shortly but yes, your deal title will be adjusted based on your current Karma points.
Answer: Begging for Karma is a sure way to get negative Karma from Admin or other members. Repeatedly Begging for Karma points can lead to a block on your account after which one cannot receive any further Karma points nor can give karma points to anyone else. If any user is found asking for +ve karma through Personal messages or other means,he/she shall be suspended or banned from the Karma system completely. Earn your Karma & don’t beg for it.
Answer: As we said, Karma points automatically shows your reputation in the community. If you dont understand anything yet, simply be nice to the community, contribute back with good deals and helpful insights and community will take care of the rest. And dont forget, good Karma always pays.
