I've been seeing some karma scores going up too. When would you use it? Why would you use it?

Karma is a way to tell who on the forums is a helpful, fun or nice individual. The old Trolling/Insightful ratings were confusing to new users (yes, yes, i know) and the data was all munged and didnt really reflect your activity on a given site. The Karma system allows you to give others Karma if they are fun, helpful or whatnot. You can't take Karma away from people, so there's no more negativity. Only warm fuzzies. However, users who don't deserve Karma won't get it, so it'll be pretty obvious who is helpful and who isnt.

Those who have accelled to a high user level are also able to give people more Karma. So there is some benifit to having your user access level raised as well.

Does the Karma get updated /returned to zero every day , or is it an ongoing score ?

I do wonder if reporting an user removes Karma.  Seems like there is potential for abuse either way.

Will have to wait and learn.

If ongoing, is there a max limit one person can get?

Ongoing, no limit. And there is no way to remove Karma by a normal user.
