Only Devotees and various teams (web, dev, mod) can modify Karma/helpfulness.
Thanks. But it means that my idea of resetting of counter of helpfulness should be done - for reason I described above.  ???

But else I agree with limitation of modifying of counter of helpfulness by devotees and other special teams (web, dev, mod).  :D

I'm not going to reset the counters, for the following reason:

1. It would involve loading every single member of the forum and resetting them; or writing untested and dangerous SQL by hand to try and empy the table

2. It was only open for a short time. The possible amount of voting that members did was very small - even now, the totals are small, and as time goes on, the effect of having it open for a day will become beyond minimal.

I saw one person with negative helpfulness - and, in fact, they were prevented from posting due to moderation reasons anyway. I would consider giving them a fresh start - because we discussed how to vote after the voting was already negative for them.

Basically, I am encouraging Devotees/admins/etc to vote up helpful posts; and really to ignore the downvote possibility. That's the test going forward - as long as scores are positive, and seem to correlate with helpful people, I think it'll work. Otherwise, I'll simply shut the system off again, and no harm done. :)

Thanks for explaining.
It was a such stupid idea.

There's any way to know where you got those helpful votes?

Nope. It's anonymous by design; and there's no control to change that without a forum modification. :)

... but it would be good if somewhere in forum would be locked topic (like topic of SMSC awards) where would be written who got point of helpfulness and for what reason - link to exact post with explaining.

Perhaps, but I could write about a lot of things. I don't think it's necessary. But I will anyway.
