Returns either a string representing the total number of karma points for the passed $username or the total number of karma points and subroutine reference for good and bad karma comments. These references return the according karma levels when called in scalar context or a array of hash reference. Every hash reference has entries for the timestamp (timestamp), the giver (who) and the explanation string (reason) for its karma action.
add_karma($thing, $good, $reason, $who)
Adds or subtracts from the passed $thing's karma. $good is either 1 (to add a karma point to the $thing or 0 (to subtract). $reason is an optional string commenting on the reason for the change, and $who is the person modifying the karma of $thing. Nothing is returned.


Defaults to 1; determines whether to respect selfkarmaing or not.
Defaults to 3; number of good and bad comments to display on explanations. Set this variable to 0 if you do not want to list reasons at all.
Defaults to 1; whether to show who gave good or bad comments on explanations.
Defaults to 1; whether to randomize the order of reasons. If set to 0, the reasons are sorted in reversed chronological order.
Defaults to 1; whether to show a response when the karma of a thing is changed. If true, the bot will reply with the new karma. If set to 0, the bot will silently update the karma, without a response.
