Karmas sorta like applauding your good behavior and the good things you do. Whether it's asking a good question or giving a good answer--or helping someone out!

You click the little "applaud" button to give karma.

For example, I'm going to give you karma for asking what karma is!

Hi Val...

I was about to hit the button and post the same thing  Kodi said, but she was a little quicker on the draw. Here's some more Karma just for fun.  :)

Best wishes,
Sasquatch

Once you hit a certain number of posts, a little thing will appear that says [applaud] right below the karma total. That's how you can add it (eventually).

Or be like me and just forget it's there and then try to atone every few weeks by karma spewing everyone here (because we basically all like each other a lot).  This is a pretty warm/fuzzy place.
