How can we improve Karmabot to make it more useful to you?
“Ehh... It's pretty great as it is.”

“It's pretty awesome, we are happy with it”

“The only issue we had with it, that my team got super excited the first day and broke the bot by adding billions of points to another bot. They are software developers. :)” (That’s been fixed btw.)
