Could anyone tell me what the Karma thing is?

It's a fun feature. When you enable Karma, every user has positive and negative points, like this -0/+0.
Below that, there's two buttons, 'smite' and 'applaud'. Smite will give you a negative point and applaud will give you a positive point. Positive points are good, negative points are bad. A user can see what other users think of him in this feature. If he gets tons of negative Karma it's because other people don't like him, but if he has tons of positive points, then people like him.

Of course, you can change the feature's name in it's Settings. You can change the name 'Karma' and the names of the links that give/take points.

Administrators can change this points for every user in their profiles.

Tip: Many users have used Karma in various ways, like assigning 'levels' in RPG boards, or money, or points so users can 'buy' stuff with them.
