Hi, right now word karma comes from the locale file (one of the django.po files inside askbot/locale - according to your selection of the language).

So if you want to make this change now - it is possible, but tedious. You will need to edit django.po file, and thange "karma" -> "reputation" in the "msgstr" sections, while taking care not to change "msgid" strings.

Thanks, your request will be implemented, there will be a way to enter your word for "karma/reputation" in the "live settings".

Is it implemented now?

It would be greate, really greate, if it were possible to change all strings in "live settings"

Hi, I have a pull request that renames all the instances of karma to reputation. But you will need to do makemessages again and translate, if you use languages other than English.

Great, not sure we'll use this though as is. We will re-implement this via a setting and add a section to the live settings called "vocabulary" to allow wording for certain terms to be customized. Very soon you will get a request: can we change word "reputation" back to "karma"?:).

Yeah, you're right. I'm looking forward to it.

the solution is talking about messages the way i understand that solution will not make any impact on the word karma in the banner example: (karma: 85 badges: ● 1 ● 7) so, how can I change this.

Well, if you'd include the django-rosetta-app, people could comfortably change all wordings (and add more languages) via the admin web-interface. I have been using it in a few project where clients wanted control on all wording the app and it works great.
