I guess they got complaints that it was depressing when you have more negative karma. Plus, I feel that the karma forced noobs to shut up and follow, rather than be creative (which is part of parkour) and learn. Also, Socialize posters, yeah :P

Haha, makes sense. I did find a lot of the most helpful people had more negative than positive karma. Anyways...I shall now pretend I've been on the forums for the past three months and not make any more mention of the lack of karma. *whistles softly and gets back to studying*

Andy Keller still has karma... :-Sarcasm

If you want a false boost of confidence you can do like him. Although I believe he does it fairly.

lol. Karma, Reputation, who cares? Just go out a run. I've said it from the starts.

You want points?

Go film a video and put it on Youtube or something, and we'll rate it.

But Karma isn't really important on a community like APK.

We're all traceurs here, we all run together. :D

The Gospel According to David - Convice 5 people to start doing parkour

Crusade - Convince ten people to start doing parkour

5 Practice makes perfect - Bail a move on your first real try.

10 Wah!  Whoo!  Wahoo! - perform three of the same move over obstacles gradually increasing in height.

20 More Bars - perform five of the same move over obstacles gradually increasing in height.

15 Bourne traceur - perform a vault over a sharp surface by wrapping your hands.

1 GO TRAIN! - Spend an hour on APK without having worked out that day.

That's all I got for now.
I decided not to put something deep here.  I'm in this for the physical aspect, the mental and spiritual are my own.

Guys, it isn't religion, I just thought it was kind of a comical reference to the stereotypical "religious" community.

I know it meant no harm, but stereotypes cause problems a lot of times, someone may be offended by what you said, as stereotypes can be true or complete nonsense. Or the discussion could have gone further, offending someone even further.
