Firstly, I saw the team recently pinned the two tournament threads. I talked to "Miggog" about pinning my updated linux server guide
, since most of the developers are admins and therefore able to pin a thread. His response could be summarized as "It will be pinned if anyone thinks its worth it." and didn't really help me at all. The old tutorial is for Beta 2.0, so I'd like to know if my tutorial is not good enough or you admins just missed it.
Secondly, there has been a small discussion about karma "abuse". My account's karma function had been revoked due to "Lucas" complaining about me abusing it. In my opinion, there can't be general rules on how to give out karma, since everyone feels different about a post/user. If we refer to "abusive behavior" as giving out a lot of karma to one user, I think there are only two ways to solve this argument and treat everyone as equal:
Option 1: If admins are able to track back who gave whom karma, I'd suggest tracking back all people who gave out large amounts of karma, check if they have been abusing the system (e.g. on me
, since it went down by approximately ~30 points one day) or not and, in case they did, revoke their karma rights, too.
Option 2: Admins are not able to track back karma and my rights were revoked on pure assumption and whining of a beta tester. I'd then like to have them restored.
