I lost my Beer Karma! Zero points? Don't worry. Lost some points? Everyone did. This isn't a glitch. I'm working on the Beer Karma system, which required a reset to zero. Additionally, some sources of points have been altered or removed. Any resulting point changes are global (applied across all users) and we won't be divulging what changed; as that's simply not the way of Beer Karma. But I will say that we were starting off new members with too many points for doing nothing. It's going to take the system some time to catch up, but eventually everyone's points will repopulate. Update: The Premium Member boost to Beer Karma is now incremental based on the number of years on the site, with a cap to thwart users from becoming gods. Account Verification We don't need this additional step at this time, so it's been removed to make using portions of the site a hell of a lot easier. I lost my Beer Trader status! Everyone did. Simply visit the Trading page, and then read and agree to the terms again. You'll immediately gain access to the forums, your feedback, and your stats (nothing was lost). Thanks for your patience.
