Description Quim Gil (reporter) nokia 2007-11-02 09:20:59 UTC

Since only a minority of Nokia employees have permissions to write
announcements and the authorship is irrelevant (it's 'maemo' who speaks),
authors of announcements shouldn't get karma points because of that.


Until now I have been the one writing most if not all announcemen ts since we
have Midgard. As a result I'm the n1 in the karma list and I bet these
announcements have a lot to do with it. It's actually embarrassing.



If there is no way to change the current behavior an alternative could be to
assign the authorship of these announcements to the admin user, hidden anyway.

Karma      1836 <- yeah, that's a big number
comments     44
favourites     116.75 <- this is not a tiny number
buries     11
wikicreates     40
blogs     663 <- I'm assuming you think this number includes news?
discussion     404 <- this is a big number [only 13 people have more karma than
this number]
groups     30
bugzilla_reported     528 <- this is a big number [only 7 people have more
karma than this number]
products     0

quim: please don't resolve bugs as wontfix w/o giving a reason...

Even if your blogs value was 0'd, you'd still be way ahead in karma. You have
nearly 1000 more points than #2, and the two items I flagged give you more
karma than anyone else.
