How important karma pointsare

As what the title says, what really is the essence of having many karma points (like for example hundred thousands lol)(or just having karma points)? I know for authors as a payment for beta, story covers/trailer, as prize but for the plain readers? Im really just wondering what are the other uses for karma points :D p.s. Can it be traded for real money bc im really broke at the moment and this groups doesnt have chill on their combacks and concerts(; ̄O ̄)

I wish you can do more with karma points tbh. Buy things with karma to customize our profiles more or something. This would be fun. However, I don't think AFF has the people to do that

@KnoW_logic To become a recognizable writer here really requires large amounts of karmas lol and yeah even if 1000 karmas = $1, i would have a stable job and nice salary lolololol if only this could be true xD

You can gift them to me! Lol. I'm just kidding.

Karma points can also be used to transfer stories from one person to another. Also, you can use your karma points to bid for advertisement. I don't think these were mention yet. There's a section in the FAQ that talks about how one can spend karma points. Otherwise, I do wish we could exchange it for money. Lol.

The authors want their stories to get more recognition. So they pay shops for helping them advertise them. They need to pay for the advertisers hundreds of karmas if they want to have many wall posts, blog posts, even fake subs or fake votes. For some shops, some packages can go up to 600 or 700 karmas.

Other than paying for services, I think the only other use for it is incase you want to change your username. It's 500 kps, if I remember correctly. Also you need at least 25 kps to be able to upvote (along with the verified email). That's all I can think of~ I would love to have it traded for real money too but ;_________; let's be broke together.
