rainingwolf, you've done absolutely nothing wrong and you have nothing to apologize for. The floaties are for all members to click on. And apparently you've been quite lucky to get cursed more than cured.  :)  And I hope that sort of luck holds out for you for as long as possible.  ;)

lately i've noticed that some brand new members already have thousands of points in their karmic totals.

how is this possible?

They've clicked on floaties.  :)
I'm think I'm one of those--did I do something wrong? If so, I apologize--never meant to offend! :'( Is there a way to correct this if need be? And what are the "floaties" that I shouldn't click on?  [confused_ani] I'm trying to learn...really!

Every now and then a small picture of something such as a character (Nathan Forbes in his revealing yellow pants seems to be an occasional favorite), a prop (recently the infamous Filigree Pen), etc., will float around on the screen, and if you happen to click on it at the right time you'll be rewarded with curse points, or, if it ISN'T the right time, punished with cure points. Hope this helps.

Welcome, btw!

I'm completely confused.   Let me say that louder, because I sense that not everyone is totally surprised that I would be completely confused.    In fact, that is a very surprising thing, since I have a big brain weighing a few pounds maybe that lesser mammals such as sheep and plankton and lampreys and breakfast cereals envy like nobody's business.    I AM COMPLETELY CONFUSED.


And if by some chance I happen in fact to have a real point of any kind to make, in all probability it is this:    in the entire time I've been posting here, probably from, I don't know, vague guess, 2004 on, have the cures been awful things and have the curses been really good things?   'Cause.... I'm getting cursed, and good.   But I remember that most of that is from one stupid day when a "floatie" appeared, and I didn't know I was risking cosmological doom by clicking my mouse onto it.     I missed... several times... and got the "good" bad karma?    So.... nothing succeeds like failure?      You see, this is sort of why I said I was totally confused, seeing as how that is exactly what I in fact am.

My good and bad karma seem to rise equally, so why the f am I concerned?

Yup.  :)

As the Good vs. Evil polls have shown, it's more fun to enjoy a DS character when they're evil than it is when they're 100% human - while they're exhibiting their "goodness" as it were. And, in the case of the Barnabas poll, it's far more fun to be cursed than to be cured. And with that in mind ... curses will be what you'll most want to receive

Let me say here and now that I've been curing a lot of people whose posts I like.

Didn't it used to be possible to hide the karma features if you wanted to opt out of the game?  All of a sudden, I'm now seeing everyone's totals again.  Is this because of the upgrade?

Yup. That was something I added. It's not a part of SMF.

So does this mean we've lost that feature because of the upgrade?

For the time being before I can code it back in.  :)

WHEW!

I'm really new here, and noticed I had -4 curse... and I was thinking 'CRAP! what did I do?' I know some of what I say in the games can be a little over the top... but I was like, "oh man... i'm in trouble!" Now I find out it's a good thing! WOO HOO!!
Have you ever had the sensation of being stared at? Like somebody was staring at you and you couldn't see them? Because I just had that feeling now. Somebody was looking at me. Looking right through me.

I was confused to in the beginning ME!  Unfotunatley I have a lot of Cures from the floaties!  Hopefully I will get back up to where I want to be in the future! [ghost_wink]
If you like DS and want to have a fun  on a Facebook page that is open to all forms of DS and doesn't allow childish behavior like some groups; come on over to DIAESD! You do have to ask to be invited and I will approve you.
