I noticed there's this guy who asked 1 question, didn't give any answers or comments, didn't do much of anything, but got 95 votes on that one question and thus has karma nearing 1000 giving him rights to delete answers or whatever, even though he didn't really collaborate much.

perhaps having some kind of max limit on how much one question upvoting can actually give you? (something like upvoting karma is only given for the first 10 upvotes?)

50 karma only for upvotes for one question seems to be more realistic vs the levels required to help remove duplicates and edit questions etc...

i mean, answers are more important than questions anyway, (though i'd give the same limit to answers anyway)

Good idea (though I'd prefer diminishing returns instead of limits).

Unless karma = money I don't care of it, but I suspect others are too much involved with the "gamification" thing.

I see too many questions and few answers. Maybe the number of questions per user must be limited. Or if you prefer after a small number of questions each new question should cost karma points so to avoid childish behaviour of who get more karma.

I agree with @Titanium, but what about bug reporting? Limiting "questions" tagged as "bug" could be counter-productive.

@Titanium@donaggio Karma isn't meant to be a treat for your ego, but an indicator of how useful you are to the community. I think in the beginning it's only natural with a lot of questions and few answers, but that ratio will probably shift towards more answers as people become more knowledgeable!
