Hi,

Thanks for sharing such a good post. However just curious apart from Gmat club test does kudos give you access to certain questions as well (imp , latest and good questions ) . Read it in someone's post. Would appreciate your help.

Thanks
Megha

All questions and content on the forum is available to everyone. However, you do get access to GMAT Club tests with 25 kudos - that's the main recognition besides being appreciated and contributing to a society.

Thanks a lot for replying and clarifying .

When you give a kudo point does your kudos points get deducted?

No. By clicking Kudos button and giving someone Kudos, you actually don't lose any of yours - you give but it is not removed from your balance.

can i take away kudos?

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.

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

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

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

Just like the GMAT...

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.

Oh... Did you recently edit the rules?

My apologizes, I could have sworn I read "50 kudos within 90 days".

Am I seeing things?

Don't think so, the rules are here: http://gmatclub.com/blog/free-gmat-test ... b-members/

Sometimes there is an assumption that 90 days applies to all of the options, but it does not.
We used NOT to have the 90-day requirement before but that lead to too much junk posts and one-liners (which we still have quite a few of those in the question forums but that's tolerable there).

Dear BB,
I am just curious about your GMAT score. How long did it take you to study GMAT to score 750? Did you get 750 for the first test? I haven't seen anybody who has higher score than yours. To get 750 on the GMAT test is like mission impossible for me.

There are plenty of people with a higher score

Here is my suggestion and study plan:

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

And there I was wondering why I was suddenly getting kudos email.

Nice job, though, guys.

Of course there were attempts to inflate the Kudos. These attempts don't succeed because we monitor the Kudos misuse constantly. We usually ban users who misuse Kudos after one warning.

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!
