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!

Sure - that's exactly why you clicked it :lol: Just teasing.
I had 4 different people check in with me over the weekend about not having a Kudos button next to their profile, so Voila...

no, the kudos button is available to anyone now. We have made this change after I received four messages in one day about the same question :)

So, I hear you, and if you have any other suggestions, just PM

BB, I have 2 questions:

1) When I give kudos to somebody, do my kudos get transferred to them? As in does mine get reduced by '1'?
2) Suppose I get 25/50 kudos, do I still need to have a 90 day membership?

1) No - your kudos are yours, you can give as many as you would like to
2) No. However, we verify kudos before granting test access

WOW, getting 50 kudos for me is like scoring a 800 on the GMAT!


Yes, this is a bit dated system, from back when multiple Kudos were awarded by moderators - a few folks received 50 right away for a few posts but those were crazy times. Today you can post 50 semi-useful posts that somebody will notice or you can post 1 FANTASTIC POST that 50 people feel is valuable :wink:

To get access to the test I need 50 in total number of kudos or only post's Kudos are counted?
