    Hi Paul,

    This is with reference to –
    Continuing with example presented there… ^^

    I think, if a user post 10 comments, he will get 117 karma points.

    What will happend for 11th comment? Or next 10 comment?

    Can we set it like cubepoints?

    1 comment = 10 karma point? Then for each comment a user posts, karma point go on adding.

    So for each discrete action, karma will be affected. Then for some “milestone” e.g. 10 comments, some badge will get unlocked. I think stackoverflow sites operate like that. You earn badges over time but your actions generally changes your karma.

    Once an achievement is unlocked, the points are awarded. And that’s all.
    If you want to give an achievement for 11 posts, or 20, you’ll need to make multiple achievements.

    It doesn’t work in the way you’d like it to, but it is really simple for both users and site owners to understand, and I think that’s important. The value is in the act of earning an achievement, and not it becoming a virtual currency.
