[meta] Karma awarded <> FAQ listing

Just wanted to point out that the karma earned for an up-vote is not 10 points like it used to be (and stated in the FAQ), but is currently valued at 15 points. Maybe the award levels needs to be looked at again, or is it currently under review anyway?

The levels for certain badges seem to have been changed, there seems to be an awful lot more "Notable questions" as of late.

I've changed the settings - the current levels are attached. I've dropped the upvoting levels back down. I've also raised the points for accepting an answer to hopefully encourage more people to accept answers to their questions.

So you lose 2 points for Downvoting as well? Is this to discourage downvoting? Even if the post deserved to be downvoted?

For e.g. see the latest posts on this [question][1]. Those were down-voted by me. Wasn't it right?

The badge levels should be the same as before - they were different for a few days, but I was able to port over the levels from the earlier build of the site.

Karma levels are slightly different, and aren't currently exposed through the site dashboard, so aren't currently editable. I've mentioned this to the developers, but I understand it's a fair bit of work, so it might not change for a while.

Thanks for the reply. If the devs are on it, then it'l get "fixed" somehow or other.

I'm still not sure that the thresholds for the badges haven't changed. A "Notable question" was more than 300 views before surely, or the views have been re-assessed and a load more questions have reached the thresholds.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
