It suddenly appeared next to my name on PH. I tried to check the FAQ of Product Hunt, but I didn't found the answer.

@jacqvon As far I can tell... Bronze... starts with a B? Silver... starts with an S? Gold.. starts with a G? What does my K mean? I will temporarily assume this means I am a King, unless told otherwise.

@jacqvon I did an "inspect element" and now realise I believe this stands for Karma am I correct?
