Why doesn't Joseph Clark have more karma?

As far as I can tell, he works this website like a demon. I think he could handle a few more up-votes.

Thanks! I usually spend my morning going through the unanswered development questions whilst I have my morning coffee, so I have a bit of time to try and give some detailed responses.

Speaking of, I think this is the most detailed and appropriate answer to this question, so feel free to up-vote! :-)

I agree - he always delivers great answers and is only averaging 19.4 points per answer...His answers are easily worth twice that! :-)

Agree! Thanks for the metric tonnage of helpful answers.....I especially like how you tackle even questions to which I often expect possibly no answer :)

This is quite possibly the most awesome question on all of Answers.

That is because many users dont vote up and many have a very low acceptance rate .

the below users also derserve more karma since they have given many good answers but karma average is low

Bob Swift 472 7457 15.7
Dieter 416 7432 17.8
Renjith V 578 6576 11.3

interesting statistics. How did you get it?

Indeed, an interesting metric. @jobin yours is 18.35 points/answer. :)

nice to know :) But again, how did you find it? i don't see the total number of answers anywhere. Maybe I am missing something very obvious.

I saw it in your profile. You have answered 1333 questions. Ok, assuming you didn't answer the same question twice

Ah, I see..!

Total Karma/Total number of answers :)

Is there any how to use answers. Atlassian doco?

karma points/badges/ accept rate/vore up/down and the other function need to be clearer and the user be encouraged to use them with creating some kind of recognition.

Like his/her name can be mentioned during the Meetup aor announces contributor of the month etc.
