HB Karma

Combined user score of quality and quantity of ideas.
  (+2, -11)(+2, -11)
(+2, -11)
  [vote for,
against]

Calculate some normalized (percentage?) score for each halfbaker. People get points added for posting ideas, more added when their ideas get crossants, points subtracted when their ideas get fishies. Extra credit for posting lots of ideas (so a half baker who has posted one idea that garners two croissants doesn't have a higer score than another baker who has posted 100 ideas with overall average of perhaps half a crossant.) This score could then be used to decide which ideas other browsing half bakers (with less time than UnaBubba evidently has) would read first.

       1/2B is not a competition. Besides, one great, well explained, workable idea is much better than 100 ideas about mobile phones.   

       Have a fishy to reduce your karma.

       What [CoolerKing] said. And we'd just see people deleting fishboned ideas in order to 'increase their karma'.

       You probably should be looking over your shoulder from here on in.

       Good thinking [waugsqueke] but how could you keep it stable at room temperature?
DrBob, Jan 16 2002
  

       No. I don't know what that anno is about (maybe the "imaginary variety?")

       Group your halfbakers into efficiency hulls, maximizing number of +'s, minimizing number of -'s, maximizing average and most recent timestamp, maybe a few other things.

       Even seashells?

       If fishing, see Hulls ("Tying Flies", Random House, 1942).

       Good doctor, you've clearly misunderstood what I didn't write.

       It was a good guess though, wasn't it? ;o)
