I can only comment on my understanding of how the gamefaqs.com karma system works. this probably isn't 100% accurate.

karma points. one automatic karma point for each day you are logged in the forum and visit the site. additional points are gained for each post. ranked users gain points for validated moderation notices, or lose a point for invalidated notices. only one user may flag a specific post for moderatation. points are lost when a moderator has to move, censor, or delete a message.

user levels. as karma increases, forum rights increase. new users are limited in the number of posts they may make per hour/day. eventually, users can post unlimited times and gain the ability to use the "message detail" flagging system. ranked users also gain access to private forums and advanced features such as searching. users cannot become moderators through the karma system.

karmic values. only the total karma value is viewable publicly (displayed on the profile page). only moderators and yourself may view specific information. this includes the accuracy of your use of the "message detail" function, the number of your messages that have been moderated (and an option to view those messages), and so on.

karma tracking. karma only applies to user accounts. whether or not a thread/post is thought to be usefull is irrelevant. the idea is that all posts should at least be on topic or will be flagged for moderation by ranked users and removed by an actual moderator. thus, tracking relevancy on threads is moot.
