# Will you get karma if you like an answer that you edited?

## When you edit an answer.... It doesn't automatically like the answer. So my question is that if you like it..... will you get karma too as you contributed too?

Nope.

#### Explanation:

If you edit an answer written by another contributor and you give the answer a "like", you will not receive any of the karma points associated with the "like".

As you know, a "like" is equivalent to $100$ karma points. These points are distributed to every person who contributed to that answer as a percentage of the total contribution to the answer $\to$ see here.

So, for example, if you edit an answer and get 20% of the contribution, any "like" that the answer will receive will get you $20$ karma points. However, if you give the answer a "like" after you've edited it, you will not receive the $20$ karma points associated with your contribution.

So, long story short, no, you will not get karma if you like an answer that you've edited.
