Can some one please tell me what the word " Mana" means, when it is used here in the profiles. I know what it is in scriptures, is it close to that?

Yes, very close. Unfortunately that unscrupulous fellow from Ireland the much feared Axeman now known by the nom de guerre 'Wexy' has been short circuiting the stuff from those who truly deserve it. Twice I have been honored to have four barrels of the stuff and twice two barrels were stolen. After much discussion and investigation, REDWING our fearless and forthright member has pretty well nailed down the insidious behavior of the afore, afore REDWING that is, named person. It's been a well known rumor on the forum that if you want mana you need to send a manila envelope to the Axe with a check of a suitable amount or a pile of cash in the requisite thickness to his headquarters on the shady side of the law. Normally I don't grant mana to anyone with less than 100 postings on the site, but since you asked I'm going to try to send you two barrels of the stuff. Treat it like the valuable commodity it is and guard it well or you may find it filched.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mana Although, it also stands for the Midwifes Alliance of North America, a group whose "goal is to unify and strengthen the profession of midwifery, thereby improving the quality of health care for women, babies, and communities." Not sure how that relates to Goldwings, butwhatever.:baffled:

Ok, since no one has actually answered your question yet, mana is meant to be sort of a reward system for good deeds, help, etc. In other words, if someone assists you, in some way, such as answering a question, you would then give them mana.

The little green barrels are supposed to accumulate to indicate how much a person has received.
There are "bugs" in the system though.In most cases, the system won't show over 1 1/2 barrels. So just about everyone on the board has 1 1/2.

But every so oftensomeonehas more, so there is lots of joking on the board about how bribery must be involved.

Occasionally you will see a newbie that only has one or two posts, and they have all 4 barrels, so everybody wonderswhat happened there.

It's all in fun though.



Now since I answered the question so nicely, I think everyone should give me mana so that we can see if I can break the 1 1/2 barrel barrier. :action::action:

Look here Wolfman... the great mana conspiracy is no joke!!:whip::whip::whip:

Furthermore it certainly ain't all in fun... It's a freaking, disgusting bit of chicanery! :whip::whip::whip::whip::whip::whip:

If it weren't for the Irish mafia run by a nefarious nabob from County Wexford we'd all have a chance of earning the requisite mana as determined from the usefulness of our responses to queries and to the exquisite cleverness of our rubbish postings.
