Updating Karma - Let me sleep

VS

Hi,
Karma is a neat job. It does help me move forward. I never want to see it reduce! However, it reduces when I don't work (in the nights!). I hope Karma does want us to sleep :)

Perhaps decreasing Karma after mid-day is a better idea?

Karma should also motivate us to add new tasks to Todoist. Philosophically Karma should entangle us into the circle of task life, as does Karma (the original definition) entangles us into the circle of life!

Hello Vijay,

Karma should certainly not reduce itself when you sleep. Please go to the Karma details and let me know for what reason did your Karma decrease? You will see red icons and can hover over them to get more information why you've lost points.

You also get Karma for adding tasks.


Best regards,
David

Hello David,

It says it reduced because I've tasks that are 4 days overdue.
Now I better understand how Karma works! Again, Karma - a neat job!

Regards
Vijay

Hello David,
A feedback: Noticed that Karma is a linear function. I think it should bettered with a combination of linear and exponential functions; meaning if someone does not work for more than 2 days, his karma should decrease faster. Once he starts again, it should grow faster to motivate him to work more.

If your design time does approve it, I'll be happy. Forget me not though ;-)

Seems like the Karma function has been updated, hasn't it?

Hello David,
No issues. Things are fine (except Inbox, anyways). I just noticed that the way Karma is being calculated has been modified, and that's what I wanted to clarify.

Thanks!
