This is due to deleting kudos that were awarded by a member who has been deactivated, AFTER you redeemed them for a GMAT Club subscription.
Or in case of Kudos inflation, when those kudos would be removed, again after you do a redemption for GMAT Club tests.

Got it bb, at this point of time, i do not have the access to my subscription of GMAT Club tests and i have -8 kudos.
This means that i will get the subscription reactivated when i reach 0 kudos? Am i right?

Re: Kudos Points on GMATClub Forum [#permalink]
Hi bb, I have positive kudos now, the total count of my kudos should be 26, but i redeemed kudos for the GMAT Club tests which were revoked later, so the count is just one.
I believe that now i have covered up for the inflated kudos.
I really need them to aid my preparation

I am a new member here, so bear with me.

As I understand, you need to post at least 5 replies before you get to post a topic. Do Kudos points help in any way?

No, you can post a topic but you can't post links until you have 5 posts and 5 days of membership.

Thanks very much to design such wonderful platform for the GMAT prep. I guess would have donated \$ 1 million check for this community service. But right now not a millionaire ; so sorry, but will help in future, if got some bucks.

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)

Re: Kudos Points on GMATClub Forum [#permalink]
The only 2 reasons Kudos would go away is if the user who has given them was deleted or if the Kudos were given from another user with questionable intentions; in that case the kudos are removed.
