Hi bb
I have been enquiring about when is this event planned and i learn today that it has already started a week ago! Even on august 9th , there was no ad for this event but surprised registration was open since august 4th



OK. But....
We have had banners on the site and under the timer since Aug 4th
Our YouTube channel, FB, and other social media has had it since Aug 4th
We have had pop ups, announcements, and other messages
Our newsletter has had it 3 weeks in a row (but you have unsubscribed from it)
I even sent a PM to some of the active users who have used a timer (but you have not used it in 90 days so I did not PM you)

There is definitely a limit as to who we can reach....

I’m slightly confused about the 30 timers score bonus. I believe I have taken 30 qualifying timers today, and have received no bonus so far. Will the score be added eventually or am I missing something?
Thanks!

Hi bb Bunuel,

I hope you are doing well.

I respect the quiz rules set by the team but I recently answered an SC question along with an explanation but didn't receive the Kudos.

Just in case it got missed, here is the post again:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-club-ol ... l#p2843939

Thanks in advance!



Thank you for the request. We have done a secondary review to make sure that all posts have been treated equally.
Today the moderator was looking for 4 out of 5 correct answer choices (meaning you got the right and 3 out of 4 wrong choices ruled out correctly). Answer choices that identified the correct answer choice but for incorrect reasons were not accepted.

The standard that was applied was 4 out of 5, allowing for 1 mistake. Unfortunately it seems your answer choice did not qualify.

Thank you.
BB.

Dear moderators bb , Bunuel , generis , chetan2u , siddharthkapoor , hope you all had a great weekend.

I am pretty sure that this post of my “not so close friend” most likely meets the criteria above. He says he knows the official problem on which it’s based very well, and hence explained every choice in due manner. I have no reason not to believe him :D

bb Bunuel generis chetan2u I see lot of inadvertent inconsistencies in Kudos assignment by moderators and I really do not want to focus on following up for kudos.
I understand the moderators are doing great by managing the competition so well. May I suggest your team to look into the possibility of flagging the post if post has been acknowledged of worthy for kudos by moderators.

I see some pattern in which if post is already given kudos by someone, not a moderator, Moderators have missed giving kudos to such posts. At the same time I wonder how users are giving kudos when posts are hidden. For instance below two are such posts and there are few more, but I lost the track and do not feel wort investing my time in relooking for them again.

I too faced similar issue,

Initially I didn't notice it, But when I came across this post I verified my posts.

Please re-evaluate this

Hi Moderators,

Didn't get the 50 points for the 30 question timer for Friday.

Also, sorry for the trouble but if you can review the explanations of the following verbal questions and let me know whether they deserve any Kudos.

Hello everyone,

We can understand the anguish one may have, feeling that some posts have missed out Kudos. But let us grant the moderator or admin who is trying to go through all explanations his/her due. It is surely a tedious work with lot of monotony involved.
There will surely be some posts that get missed out in this. Surely, as we move ahead, we will find fewer misses.

Let us look forward for more tricky, more challenging and more educative questions.
All the best for the remaining questions.

The Explanations for Yesterday's questions have already been released!
Yesterday we had harder Verbal questions so don't feel bad if you did not get them all correct. They were really tough.

Thank you AndrewN for providing these great questions and explanations!
