Welcome, thehappyman. Most of your questions can be answered in the Announcements section of the board. Generally you are in good shape if you are civil to other members, especially if you participate in discussions for a while so we can get to know you before you move on to things like selling items in your collection.
Karma is granted or taken away by other members in response to your actions on the board. The only rule is that you should only smite someone once if they do something you don't like. We can tell if someone is smiting a member repeatedly.
and thehappyman I big exalt for you for asking about rules and not being like me and coming in and clogging the forum up with nonsense ( that is a smack at me not you sir I don't know how to do the silly faces ) have a great time and enjoy yourself
