Turn off Karma feature

Is there any way to turn that off completely?

Basically what we want to do is allow users authenticated through LinkedIN to post new question/answers and comments and that's all. I have added few users to "Moderators" group but they cant edit post because they don't have enough karma points!? You can' make yourself a moderator. Admin has to make the person a Moderator so what's the point to have minimum karma points? Totally don't understand a logic in this portal...

edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


it's me again. it seems there's a bug that shows "Edit" to every user on every answer in version 0.7.53. it does not happen on version 0.7.50 but the main issue exists on both versions: i grant permission to a group _askbot_moderators_ and they dont work. even if i grant the same permission to the user it wont work. the only way to allow user to edit/moderate(delete etc) question is give him administrator rights...

ok, have tested it on version 0.7.50 and the edit button appears when you have enough karma points. if you log off the edit option disappear. on 0.7.53 you can set the karma to 1000 and askbot will always show edit button whether you are logged in or not. is it a bug or a feature?

Maybe i will be more specific. No matter if i create a local user or authenticate through LinkedIn i always see Edit button on everyones question/answer. When i click it it tells me i need 100 Karma points in order to do that. Askbot version 0.7.53 Where on the version 0.7.50 i cannot see edit button if the question/answer doesnt belong to me. My question is: Is it something you can edit in the setting? Basically i went through all the settings and couldt fins the solution
