    Are the Karma points/level/mug etc. going to show up under the person's names/ avatar in a forum posting (like with location)?

    Will old forum posts be counted? As in the ones before March of 2012.
    Glad to see it back.

    Thanks for bringing the stats back! Will the rest of the stats be along after a bit? It seems like there's a couple missing, # of breweries is one, that didn't make it over.

    Glad to have the karma back!

    Now I am kind of confused so maybe I am over looking something obvious...but are my "beers" listed on my profile all my beers or only my "hads"? To me it seems to only be my "hads". Why wouldn't it just be a total of reviews and hads?

    Again maybe it's been too long of a day for me to realize something simple...

    This hasn't changed. It shows all of your Hads/Reviews in a single list. I just paged through yours and saw both.

    I still see both as well. I guess what I meant is on my profile that I see it says:

    I am wondering if the 694 is the number of "hads" plus "reviews" or just hads. To me it seems like it's just my hads. I don't really care as am more curious.

    Gotcha. That number is the total number of beers you've had; regardless if it's a full review or quick rating.

    Any plan for the old stats of tracking how many different countries, states, and styles, etc of beers reviewed/had by your profile coming back? I always enjoyed looking at that.

    4406 karma points means you need to spend more time with your kids!! ha Thanks brothers this is the prodding I need to transfer notebook reviews to the site! And I am a 6-pack ticker- I don't do singles (and yes I am also broke-yet happy).

    Looks like you have 694 total beers (hads) and of those, you've reviewed 259.

    As a confirmed ticker, I'm glad to see this back. I would be lying if I said I hadn't continued calculating my karma based on the the old rules, just for my own edification :).

    If you look at your profile page, it already has the number of states and countries.

    No styles yet but at least part of the old information is back.

    Yup, I'm excited about that I'm loving this new karma system. I just hope they can add the styles back eventually.

    And what I meant was being able to view the countries and states which I don't think I can do.

    If I'm not mistaken, the old profile pages had number of breweries reviewed in the stats section. Is there any chance of this being brought back as well?

    We're tracking Beer Styles too. I just forgot to add it to my post and member profile pages. It's there now.

    I remember reading that all these stats were being tracked silently on the back-end.

    Regarding the duplicate review purge: do we still get karma for the duplicate serving type reviews that were deleted practically overnight (and were counted under the old system), or are we just SOL?

    No. You won't get points for content that's no longer being used (not deleted) by the site.

    It's an awesome way to track/tick what you are enjoying.

    For the "pics added" sections, is it only counting pics added since the return of BK? Just curious as it looks like all of my event postings (including before the return of BK) are tracked on my profile but not any pics (from before or after the return of BK).
