Can someone explain what is wrong with this KUDOS system, a lot of people don't know about it and if we inform and ask to appreciate with KUDOS the account is apparently disabled with no intimation and no replies to mail..not even considering someone's side. SHOULD WE ASK for KUDOS or NOT if the other person doesn't know about this.[

These KUDOS as dam addictive, just as smoking is.
When you don't have any, you don't care ****.
Once you get your first few, you want them more. In a good way though.

Yes, Sajjad1994 is absolutely correct. At some stage you don't even care about the kudos.

I think it is supposed to work once (meaning the first time you do it/give it) but I think nobody did and I frankly don't know what state it is in

Kudos should be redeemable for GMAT Club Forum Quiz Mode as well.
That would be really great. bb

Hi friends.

Perfect solutions deserve Kudos..However, while most of us can solve questions within the prescribed GMAT time, we are unable to design wonderful solutions akin to those of Sajjad1994 or Bunuel or bb or abhimahna or Gmat Ninja.

Besides penning down the well designed solutions as posted by the aforementioned stalwarts, are there other ways to earn Kudos?

Can anybody help?

I would check the on-going events such as Butlers - you will get Kudos for correct answers to those new questions posted in PS/DS/SC/CR/RC and IR sub-forums.
