Great question! I was gone for 3 weeks and lost enough Karma Points that it took me out of Master and back into Expert.
I was, to say the least, miffed. If you are going to do this, why not build in a vacation mode so we don't loose points.
I can't wait to see the answer.
This is the nature of productivity Karma ;) Please note that you can gain Karma much faster and easier than lose it so you'll surely get it all back when you return to work :)
Then the nature of your productivity Karma is fundamentally flawed. And, let's be honest, kind of mean--like a bad boss.
While vacation is time lost from work, it actually serves to boost productivity. It helps the employee and employer.

I'm disappointed by this response, and my love for ToDoist is somewhat diminished.
LS, you realize the Karma points are just an extra thing that doesn't alter or affect anything. It's just a fun extra, a way to "game-ify" your productivity.
Anyway, it's been fun figuring out the extras in Todoist. Good job, guys! It's the best to do app I've ever used, and I'm a productivity junkie so that's saying something! :-)
