My worry is that it seems like I am granted moderator points quite often. For the first year that I was a registered user, I'm not sure that I got any access. I posted a few comments that gave me a point or two of Karma. The first time I remember getting moderator points was right after I had a submission accepted. It was only a story in AskSlashdot that never made it to the homepage, but it gave me a Karma boost. It wasn't too unexpected.
But later I had one story that was put on the main page. That is when (I think) my problem began. Soon after that I got mod points. Nothing out of the ordinary there, but I then I got 5 more points the day after I used them all up. And then a third round of points. I was puzzled.
After that round, I didn't get points again for a few weeks, and then avery few weeks or so. The past few weeks, however, I seem to have been getting points about once a week or so.
Now, I will point out that at the moment I have a Karma rating of "Good" (Why did they stop telling us the actual number?) and I am a subscribing member, not that it should have anything to do with moderation privleges. I check in a few times daily, and try to metamod every day. When I moderate, I try to stay away from negative moderations unless I feel the post really needed it, which is not very often -- most that need it are AC's or have been hit by mods before me, and not worth wasting my points. Also, last week I posted a comment that was moderated up to 5 and was replied to a number of times.
Like I said at the beginning, I'm not complaining. I enjoy moderating and having an active part in the
Feel free to tell me what you think, that's why it's here.
