BOOKMARKED
What are Kudos? Kudos are a reflection of quality of contributions at GMATClub as perceived by GMATClub members.
Kudos can be awarded by anyone to anyone and are used to show appreciation, gratitude, or indication of value.
Kudos are awarded to both a post and a poster. (You must be logged in to see/give kudos)

What can I use Kudos for?

  • You can use Kudos to find the best posts on GMAT Club - we publish lists of the posts with most Kudos on the Forum Index Page as well as here: Top Forum Posts.
  • You can also Sort by Kudos in each forum and find the highest ranked discussions or even highest ranked posts within each thread (they are highlighted by green and yellow colors)
  • You can also give Kudos to others - when you click a +1 button to award Kudos, the receiver gets a notification about your award. It works much better than posting a short line saying "Thanks"
  • [Cool] You can use Kudos to get access to the GMAT Club tests. If you have 25 kudos, you can get full access to the gmat club tests for 3 months. Once you hit this milestone milestones, please visit this page: http://gmatclub.com/tests.
  • [Cool] You can use Kudos to get a free copy of the GMAT ToolKit iPhone/iPad app
  • Why Give Kudos?
  • We identify the Top 10 members every month and publish the listing here.

Interpreting Kudos

Near each post, you will see the following information:

Total user's Kudos ("A" in the image below)
This post's Kudos ("B")
Kudos given to others ("C")
+1 Kudos button (you can see one on the left)

How to get more Kudos?




Do you want to check who and for what posts gave you Kudos?
There are 2 ways to see this information: click on your profile button while browsing forum. That's this button:
Image
or just go to this URL: http://gmatclub.com/static/kudos-details/

Image

- Kudos are collected when somebody clicks +1 button. If you benefit from somebody's post, do click +1, which will increase that score, both for the user and for the post.

- Only positive Kudos can be given.

- You can give only one Kudos point to a single post. After you give that point, there is no way to withdraw it or award another one. The +1 button will be removed from the posts you have awarded Kudos.

- Kudos given are usually displayed with a delay of approximately 10 minutes due to caching.



If you have suggestions or comments about the Kudos system, please do not hesitate to PM me. Thank you.

Kudos 2.0 sounds awesome. I hope this forum had a web 2.0 like template, but it might take a lot of bandwidth to load all those background images.


We are working on tweaking the templates on the forum all the time so if you have any thoughts - we have big ears :)

So far bandwith is not an issue - our dedicated server comes with 750GB and we use only a fraction of that, so we could easily allow for additional usage.

What I am leading to is - if you have any suggestions or ideas how to improve the templates or make the user interface better - PLEASE - share your thoughts -I will be happy to implement or try to. Esp. if you have seen something that you liked. The forum is customizable (users can have their own individual templates). The forum somftware is driven by templates - many exist for this forum but we have not explored as were pretty satisfied. We are actually playing with the templates right now a little - you can go here: ucp.php?i=165 and set your board style to SubSilver_beta and see what we've been playing with past few days. I welcome your thoughts on the new menu. keep in mind it is very early in the development so the colors are a bit off and not all menu items are populated.

(Don't set it to mTheme - that's a mobile theme for iPhones and Blackberries - huge font)

Hm.... this looks very interesting :)

Thank you!!!
We do have a number of the mods installed on the forum but definitely not such a variety. I guess one question is whether it is easier to re-install the board or add some mods to the existing ones.

is there any functionality that you feel would be valuable to to the user experience out of the mods listed above? (would hate to go through the pain of upgrading without a benefit)

Questions:
- What BB Codes would you like to see on the forum? They are easy to add and as long as they add value we will add them

- What do you mean by header adjustments for both styles?

Thank you for your initiative!

:-) We should have a way to see best posts and source of kudos pretty soon. (so you know who gave them to you for which posts)
The functionality is there but needs to be prettied up (which sometimes takes a while).

Hi,

Please give a closer look to the first post of this thread:

Your total Kudos are shown above the red A letter in the image. Your total Kudos at the moment is 0, but you only have 2 posts at the moment. BTW, welcome to the Club!!!

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:

90 days is an approximate number of days needed to generate content worth of 50 Kudos. We might change the policy in the future, but the current terms proved effective. Do you have a suggestion? Please share what you think :).

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.
