Starting today, we're making several changes to the way Karma and user levels work on GameFAQs.

Currently, Karma and user levels are awarded starting around 7:05PM Pacific time every day, and one point of Karma is awarded for any day you've visited a message board page while logged in during the prior 24 hours.

From now on, you'll receive one point of Karma when you visit the site (any page, not just the boards) while logged in for the first time during any calendar day UTC. That's your first visit after 5PM Pacific Daylight time (4PM Pacific Standard Time in the fall). You will also gain user levels on that first visit, and Warning and Purgatory statuses will now expire within 5 minutes of their end time, instead of at 7PM Pacific.

This change has already happened in the background of the site, but it isn't visible quite yet. Over the next couple of days as we transition to this new system, you may see your karma and user level fluctuate slightly as various pages are updated, but you won't lose any karma or levels you've already gained; they can only go up, not down.

If you encounter any errors or other issues with this change, please let us know with a feedback ticket: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/feedback?type=20
"Um, let's face it, you'd be better off staying at the Hilton."
