Thank you for raising the questions.
I think the Kudos system has a lot of potential but has been on a back burner for a long time. We are not having too many issues with junk posts for the sake of tests access (that does not need fixing) but at the same time, we are not using it as a driver of this community - i have seen others that have much more centered their forums around Kudos/points/etc.

Main reasons to tinker:
1. I think it can be more than it is today :0
2. I'd like an easy project to complete in a few weeks in contrast to my day job where it takes months and years to get through things
3. We do need to reward/punish people better
4. Give control to people to identify good content

A lot of it is speculation but we won't know until we try.
This is not highest on my priority list but up there. If you think there is a better use of my/admins time, feel free to PM me. I will be more than happy to put your idea into fruition or even better, put you at the help of its design (if you want to of course).

You may have noticed - we have made a [strike]slight[/strike] huge improvement into the Kudos system - now every time you get a Kudo (or Kudos), you will get an email notification with the link to the post and also the person who awarded you Kudos. Thus allowing you to know

1) Which of your posts are truly fantastic (and which are just plain fantastic)
2) If you have any secret admirers and such


P.S. We are working on the unsubscribe feature next 8-)

Just curious!

Ever seen someone misusing the Kudos to gain test access??
Say for example, a group of friends all started giving kudos to each other just to reach the target of 50. :)

Or say, one fake email id, giving kudos to whatever post some user makes.

Cheers!

Even now, There are people who do not know about kudos;
so, I suggest that we add a button on home page or Forum that introduces the Kudos Button to all.
(I tell it from my own experience )
and ... a picture of kudos!!!
don't forget to consider kudos 4 me :wink:

why not create different labels in your email box and your email service provider would move all your kudos emails from Gmatclub to particular folder. This way if you want to check the kudos email you can see easily or you can delete all the emails in the same folder in one GO.

Thank you. This is an example of a good scenario where you could just give the poster Kudos without replying - thank you though :)

My 3 month subscription has ended....now i am not able to take CAT's....I want to get the subscription renewed, by redeeming of kudos. But i am unable to do so.
Pls note that my initial subscription was also through the redeeming of kudos........Can i not again use redeeming of kudos fr second time to get the subscription renewed.

The extra exclamation marks and full stops will not help or make any of us work faster.

Judging by bb's response on this thread, you should get access.

good luck with your prep.

Thanks very much to design such wonderful platform for the GMAT prep. I guess would have donated $ 1 million check for this community service. But right now not a millionaire ; so sorry, but will help in future, if got some bucks.

In order to receive 100 kudos on a post, 100 different users must feel its kudo worthy... Due to the number of users who felt his post helped them in their gmat prep, Chineseburn's post (the first in that thread) received more than 650 kudos over the past 5.5 years.

You do not receive 100 kudos automatically when creating a helpful post in that thread. Sorry for the confusion, but thank you for your contribution.

(on a side note, great avatar +1 from me for that)

Originally you could but it quickly became clear that people were more interested in taking them off than giving them, but a good point. Some posts definitely deserve that.

Why just 90 days after membership?

50 is hard enough, plus we're given a time limit?

Just like the GMAT... :roll:


The way it works is:
1. 200 posts and at least 90 days
2. 100 posts and 25 kudos (no time limit)
3. 50 Kudos (no time limit)

If you get 50 kudos in the next week (not sure how you would do it, you will get access).
However, if it is based only on posts, then there is a 90-day waiting period.

I like the idea. However, I am not sure if we need to fix what I don't think is broken.

90 days is a decent deterrent.
We catch most of the junk posters as many mods review forums and catch the slick guys. not to say we don't have any junk (a conversation of its own) but usually we are able to whack it. (there is an easy admin button to delete one's all posts ;) )

However, I do think we should overhaul the kudos system
