Hello guys,

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..

1) What is karma?

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.

2) How can you get/ give karma points?

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.

3) What if my deal goes to Front page Deal(F.P.D.)?

Answer: DesiDime will reward you with 20 karma points per FPD.

4) How much Karma point giving power will I have? How is Karma Categorized?

Answer: There will be 11 new Levels/Badges up for grabs based on your Karma points….

https://links.desidime.com?ref=forums&url=https://i.imgur.com/ZuGAa.png

Your Karma Points power dictates how much karma points can you give to other users.

5) How can I progress to the next level?

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.

6) Should I worry about Negative Karma points? What if someone decides to spoil my reputation?

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.

7) When can i give Negative Karma points?

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 “

8) I am a Deal Captain right now. So will I start from there?

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.

9a) Can I beg for Karma? Should I ask for Karma?

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.

9b) I dont understand anything. How does it all matters?

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.

10) What happens after I reach level 10?

Answer: Nirvana

PS: Comments/Suggestions are welcome!

Cheers to Admin team for new system and best wishes for a successful rollout!

I need one clarification – What about the entire concept of posting deals and earning dimes? The new system nowhere talks about the monetary rewards. We have some deal collectors who post deals daily (viz Daily deal section) and take off. IMO their contribution is also pretty vital in the entire DD ecosystem. What’s in it for them?

I think you have chosen to use a big word Karma for a small thing. I do not like the dimes concept as well. I hope you guys have done homework on how these forums have been in operations e.g. Anandtech and fatwallet.

@ Admin : One question : Who is giving karma to whom, will it be visible – as it would result in action and reaction (both +ve & -ve)…

Excellent idea. This is the thing I like about Desidime. They keep innovating and evolving with time. Admins and modraters are active and co-operative.

Sounds good……But there are are too many sticky threads and to ensure this one doesn’t go unnoticed, admin should format the title differently, change the colour or increase font size.
