Just a quick overview. Don't you think karma is a bit buggy in this forum?

If I vote up user gets 10 points then I can vote down user loses 2 points so left 8. then I can again vote up on the same user and he gets 10 points again, vote down 2 points loses... So I can repeat this as many times as I can on daily basis.

Maybe is time to fix this? :)

Paul, thanks a lot for reporting. I've just fixed it.
P.S. This bug appeared just 2 week ago. Previously users could not change their previous votes (from "up" to "down" and vise versa)

Tested and checked everything several times. Everything works fine now. Perhaps, someone else was also voting up/down when you were testing it. Please try one more time

I tested it and now you can add or diminish just 1 point. Previously the vote could not be changed once it was done

Do you mean Karma points (displayed on the left side right under avatar and "Total posts") or number of votes (displayed on the right side of a post)? Karma points works fine now.

If we're talking about number of votes, your vote up it adds +1. If I again vote down  (the same post) it removes -2 because first we remove the result of one first "up" vote (-1) and only then vote down (-1), total -2.

I was refering to votes. And I think it  is working fine. My observation was that it was improved, since previously the vote could not be changed (Up to Down or viceversa) once it was done

Is the source code and sql table structure for the karma system available? I really would like to implement it with my already highly customized store.

Thank You,

Will this Karma/Voting feature eventually get in the next release of nopCommerce?
