Karma System

Did The Karma System Change Recently? Can the users having karma 1 question now? Are there any other changes in the Karma System?

No, they can’t. I have 1 karma and I am not able to ask any question. Also there is no news/blog post for a new karma system.

Although the /about page says:
No points are necessary to ask or answer questions - you are always welcome to join this community! All you need is a CodeChef user id to be a part of this community.

This actually contradicts the fact that they don’t allow you to ask a question if you don’t have 3 karma.

Ask a question page says:
Sorry, you don’t have permissions to access this page.
This might have happened for the following reasons:
You might not be having enough karma to ask a question. Minimum required is 3.

PS please someone upvote my answer, so i can ask questions.

No,users with 1 karma point neither can ask questions nor up vote someone.

I am also facing the same problem because of less karma points.

During November long challenge I had a doubt related to KFUNC problem but was not able to ask question because of the same problem.

Please someone upvote me before next long challenge.
