Karma reflects the value of your contribution to this community. The higher is your karma, the more rights you have on this site. When someone up-vote your question or answer you gain +10 karma points. When someone accept your answer as the correct one, you gain +15 karma.

Down-voting might cost you karma, but you should consider doing so for incorrect or clearly detrimental questions and answers. Down-voting costs karma on both of you (and the down-voter). -10 or/and -5 points.

How does karma system work?

When a question or answer is upvoted, the user who posted them will gain some points, which are called \"karma points\". These points serve as a rough measure of the community trust to him/her. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to the users based on those points.

For example, if you ask an interesting question or give a helpful answer, your input will be upvoted. On the other hand if the answer is misleading - it will be downvoted. Each vote in favor will generate 10 points, each vote against will subtract 10 points. There is a limit of 200 points that can be accumulated for a question or answer per day. The table below explains reputation point requirements for each type of moderation task.
