What is karma?


We calculate a karma score for everyone on Fresh Chalk. Karma is a reflection of how much you’ve contributed to the community. The more karma you have, the higher your recommended pros—and your profile—will rank on Fresh Chalk.

As your karma increases, you gain levels on Fresh Chalk. People who achieve high levels are trusted members of our community, and have access to exclusive benefits.
