  • Check the FAQs on slashdot; some specifics are different than use Perl;, but in general the principles are the same.

    Basically, Karma is just a rating of what quality comments you produce. The only real thing you get out of it is the +1 bonus at 25 points.

    OTOH, moderation points are awarded periodically to most users who've been around any length of time and don't have excessively negative karma. You get a couple of days to spend these moderating things up and down. Read the moderation FAQs on slashdot for details.

    Spend some time around slashdot reading and commenting, and you'll start to get the idea. You're a hacker; play with all the various settings and controls. :) Things are a bit different here due to lower traffic and more consistent quality of participants, but I still think the slash moderation system is the best thing to hit the Internet since usenet. I wish everything on the net let me respond and have my responses submitted for peer review and further responses.
