i wrote a very helpful theory under AWA forum. I dint get 100 kudos for that...sad but true.. can any1 over here help?


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)

Hi bb,

I tried doing this - "You can add schools and fill out your GMAT Club profile and that will net you 5 Kudos right away." but there was no increase in my kudos. Thoughts?

Thanks for your post on Kudos and information on getting Kudos "by completing profile". 4 more to go :)

25 is not daunting number! but definitely you have to dedicate some time on the forum - which is very reasonable, for the prize you get :)

BB! I've a couple of key suggestions! :-D

1. In the verbal section there are instances where the same question is on multiple threads. In the Quant section we can often see Bunuel merging similar topics and reminding the users the rules of posting. I'm not expecting the moderators to do this. This would be a tedious task. Can the merging of similar topics be automated?

Similarly before an users posts a topic, can we have a system check to ensure that the user doesn't post an already existing topic? This feature is there in FB. If the first few words you type in a help question is similar to what is existing the user is not allowed to post his/her question. The user is directed to similar questions. This restriction of course would only be for the PS/DS/CR/RC/SC and IR sections. :-D

2. I've started taking the club tests and I LOVE THEM. But, the keyboard shortcuts allowed in the real thing - next question & confirm submit at least - are not enabled. Can we have keyboard shortcuts enabled in the tests?

Further, can we have tests in the format of: Quant - no result pop up - timed/untimed break - verbal - quant & verbal scores along with overall score pop up?

Can we have more verbal CATs too! :-)

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.

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).

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?

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.

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


Yes BB! May be we could have it in between the present 2nd and and 3rd row. It would be great if the entire stats can sit in 2 rows.

While practicing questions on the club, I find the stats very useful. I look at the options which many test takers chose wrong the maximum and try to analyse how I can avoid falling in such traps. I take such screen shots of questions and put nice traps on my error log. I'd be glad to see this stats in the club tests too easily so that I can update my error log easily. :-D It's not about laziness but about convenience! :)

That's a nice idea with Kudo's, but why do people get so many Kudo's for posting worthless comments in the forum, and some people get only 1 or none Kudo's for solving complex problems.....

Dear GmatClub Moderators,

I take great pain to inform you that my previous account(User ID- gmt1) has been deactivated and when I tried to reactivate it, this information showed up:

"Your account has been manually deactivated and is only able to be reactivated by an administrator.".

I have spent enough of my time posting stuffs and views to earn 'Kudos' apart form utilizing the resource. I earned 25 kudos by yesterday (9 june 2015) and unlocked the tests for 3 months.
And now this IS NOT funny that you have 'Manually' deactivated my account. I have not invested my valuable time and effort only to get such nonsensical message from your forum.
I would request you to check the issues and reactivate my account. (Hope this post will not be deleted!)

Hoping to hear from you soon.

Thanks a lot!

Thanks a lot for your reply BB.. But, I can assure you that, I have done nothing sort of cheating/inflating or any other stuffs to illegitimately achieve kudos. I would earnestly request you to spare some of your valuable time to go through my actions/postings/kudos (i.e. those from user ID gmt1) and let me know where I went against your rules/policies so as to face such deactivation.
I very well understand what you said about the supremacy of the moderator decisions, but still your response will certainly help many people like me avoid wasting their precious time in future in your forum. Hope you will consider my request and point out where I went wrong(specifically i.e.)

Thanks,
Test Taker

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.

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
