Why just 90 days after membership?

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

Just like the GMAT... :roll:

Even with 200 posts , there should be some limit of kudos, what if a person just say welcome to forum and thanks for this in every post....Some contribution is must atleast 10 kudos

bb, overhaul in what way? Much along the lines of your questioning why you should fix something that isn't broken... why overhaul something that isnt utilized? Is the goal to get people to give more kudos? Is it to create a more accurate picture of which users are adding value to the forum, perhaps by scrapping the +1 system altogether? Some measure of search engine click-thrus (I think a good number of us found this site through a tangentially-related Google search) plus something else (admittedly probably not implementable)? Some sort of mod-superior or mod-exclusive kudos system (has its own issues)?

Posted from my mobile device Image



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).

This Kudos system is pretty cool, I had no idea what it was. I do feel appreciated and now I can also really appreciate the people that are helpful to me. I didn't know I could do that till today, but will start from now.

Hi BB. I am glad you like my views and am thrilled to read your detailed response and action plan for making the club much better! PFB my response inline in blue.

bb wrote:
Thank you very much for your suggestions and the kind perspective.

1. Yes - we have considered this system a few times but all of those times we found an argument not to do it. Perhaps it is time to revisit.... As to automating the merging, there is a bit more going on there (Bunuel actually deletes useless posts and leaves only one useful thread; he does not merge all posts but instead merges only the best ones and the others are left locked or deleted). Souvik is starting this process, but it is a bit slow starting due to his recent GMAC summit trip. Let me look into this again - it is a good point about the look up system. I will rekindle this project/idea/concept. Wow this is good news.

:) My best wishes to the team for all success in this project/idea/concept. I strongly believe this process should be automated to the extent possible though, if feasible. At the end of the day, this is unproductive work for the moderators, moderators for whom the GMAT student community is highly thankful! :) Their time could be used better. :)

2. Can you tell me exactly what shortcuts (all of them) you use? Right now ENTER works for confirm and submit, so double enter is enough to do that).

I was not aware of the enter and double enter. I'll try that. :)

In GMAT Prep I use Ctrl +N for next after I choose an option and thereafter when the pop up appears I use Ctrl + Y to confirm. Here are the other shortcuts available.

Hope this helps! :)


At the moment, probably can't have the full test experience unfortunately. You would have to time your brake on your own. The tests are not setup to be as a single test... sorry. Could you tell me the weakness or the main issue with taking the tests the way they are now - is that learning your score? or self-timing your break?

LEARNING THE SCORE. The last and only time I took the GMAT, I felt the quant session to be extra easy. How I remember feeling it then is that "I didn't need the scratch pad for the last 10 questions" (could be hyped due to text anxiety). I felt I did my quant miserably and screwed up in verbal. When the results came, I got the 47 I always was getting in quaunt and my Verbal score dropped from 36/37 to 31! :( How I remember feeling it now is "duh! Quant is pretty easy!"

BB, can we at least have a system, where one can submit their quant test and choose whether
a) they want to see their score right now OR
b) proceed to take a verbal CAT and view both CAT results later?


Finally, as to the Verbal Tests - we are adding them slowly. About 5 questions per week.. RC is the biggest weakness at the moment. So there are questions enough for about 7 tests... just not enough RC's. They are tricky to create and we have not attempted as the result. I guess we can venture out of our comfort zone sooner or later. If anyone is good at verbal and would like to take a crack at Verbal questions - Would love to hire them. If you know anyone, please let me know.
I am very glad to know that you guys are working on increasing the count of verbal tests :-D and can visualize the pain in creating RC questions :cry: . I hope to help the community post my retake and school applications.

BB, just a thought. Since you view that you can venture out of your comfort zone for creating verbal questions and are inviting people to work towards this goal, I believe this should be the headlines in the GMAT Club newsletters and home page for the next few days. I am assertive many would like to volunteer and few will volunteer! :)

BB can you add this as a part of the instructions before a test/quiz, I think it is not there (I'd checked the don't show me the instructions again and so I am not sure if this shortcut is a part of the instructions)

Sure - it is an "unofficial" shortcut so we have not listed it it there. We will get the shortcuts fixed/worked out ASAP.

Quote:
Further, in the screen where the question and explanation is there, can we have the difficulty of the question on that screen along with how many people got the question correct/wrong and the users time vs average correct and average wrong time?


You mean to move it from where it is right now (on the Stats tab/button)? screenshot attached.

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.

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.
