Guruka Singh Ji, first of all Congrats for giving all of us(online Sangat) the beautiful design of the homepage of the Sikhnet.

Though i have been answering to the questions asked by the Sangat at this forum, what i haven't understood yet is what this numbering of Karma in the profile means and particularly what does the numbering of Gold, Silver, and Bronze signify.

When a question or answer is upvoted, the user who posted them will gain some points, which are called "karma points". These points serve as a rough measure of the community's trust in him/her. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to the users based on those points.

For example, if you ask an interesting question or give a helpful answer, your input will be upvoted. On the other hand if the answer is misleading or negative - it will be downvoted. Each vote in favor of your answer will generate 10 points, each vote against will subtract 10 points. There is a limit of 200 points that can be accumulated for a question or answer per day. The table below explains reputation point requirements in order to be allowed to perform each type of moderation task.

1 upvote
50 downvote
20 accept own answer to own questions
250 retag other's questions
100 edit community wiki questions
200 edit any answer
200 delete any comment
