Shane, I think you havenít introduced the new Bogometer yet.
Maybe you could tell us a little about it?

I added the "Karma" function of SMF, just renamed it. Just to be a curmudgeon, I've totally flipped on its head the way it works.

A bogometer measures bogosity in milliGels (I'm trying to see if I can stick mGel after the number). Higher numbers are more bogus. So, completely contrary to the way Karma is set up to work, saying that a post is "cool" decreases the number and saying it's "BO-GUS" increases it. So higher numbers are worse, not better.

I wasnít aware of the Karma function.
However, itís good I gave you a negative number, then.

Edit: Okay, but why does your rank get more and more bogus the more posts you write?

Um...because it's bogus?

Okay, because I couldn't think of anything better...
