This article relates to the GameFAQs message board "points" system. For the B8 user of the same name, see Karma Hunter.
Karma is a loyalty points system gained on GameFAQs.
The rule for gaining karma: A user must log onto the GameFAQs site to be awarded one point of karma for each 24 hour period.
There is usually a karma boost in November to celebrate the anniversary of GameFAQs' creation. If you visit GameFAQs on the day of a karma boost you get extra karma (usually 6%).
The more karma you have on GameFAQs, more noobs will look up to you. Also, when you have a moderated message on GameFAQs you will sometimes lose karma (between 3 and 90, normally 3 or 10).
