GTAForums used to have karma stars instead of medals until around October 2007. If I remember correctly, then one verbal commendation resulted in a karma star, however, one verbal warning "killed" one karma star. As you might know, [full] commendations result in medals. You'll notice that there are a bunch of members who joined the forum before 2007 and who have a medal with a GTANet Contribution Award that says "Previous karma level carried over to the new system. Thanks for your contributions.". Only members who had five karma stars or more, have got these medals.
Oh, thanks for clearing that up.
