Have you been rating entire threads up or down? Have you been rating certain people up or down on every single post they make?

Possibly, but that's not against any rules. Nor have I been informed that I'm being reprimanded for any reason, which seems counterproductive at best.

Really, check the forum rules. They define what karma camping IS, but do not prohibit it in any way.
They don't prohibit it, but they will norate you.

Odds are you have been norated, and will need to talk to kao.

Really, check the forum rules. They define what karma camping IS, but do not prohibit it in any way. They even explicitly note that karma camping specific users is perfectly OK.

the forum rules wrote:
X. Karma
If you are rating every post in a thread or a forum, especially in a long thread, up or down, you might be karma camping. The decision is based on an admin review, and we generally take into account the tone of the thread, your past rating history, any user complaints we receive, and how often such incidents occur.

If you are following a specific user around and rating every post they make up or down, you might be karma camping. The decision is based on an admin review of your rating history, their rating history on you (if any), the tone of recent posts you and they made, and if they or you did anything particularly offensive in their posts. If two people want to karma camp each other into oblivion, well that's fine with us.

Threads started in the forum for a group of users to all rate each other up are extremely discouraged.


So yes, rating every post in the Japan Tsunami thread down is karma camping. Also we took into account your rating history. And the Admin complaint. And frequincy.

I find most people figure out what happened relitivly quickly when the buttons go away, because they know what they have been doing. The forum rules define what Karma camping is, and Karma camping is not allowed, the penalty which is outlined here:

Quote:
XIV. Forum system abuse penalties
Administrators and moderation staff may employ a variety of tools, at their discretion. These include warnings, edits, thread locks, post count adjustment, removing rating ability (norate), removing the ability to post but leaving posts intact (mute), removing the ability to post in the forums and all posts (Ban) or in extreme cases IP bans. The karma system may also be adjusted to counter systemic rating abuse.

Hah, wtf. Was this guy shadowing me too at the start of March? The time the insta-rate-downs went away and the date of this thread seem to coincide quite nicely.

I noticed his `revenge` on the forum for being called out was removing the ancient BST guide he posted nearly 5 years ago. Hilarious.
