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).

I am thrilled to announce that now you can see the source of Kudos (who gave it to you and for which posts)
(you must be logged in to see this information)

There are 2 ways to see this information: click on your profile button while browsing forum. That's this button:


or just go to this URL: https://gmatclub.com/static/kudos-details/

P.S. You can also see other people's Kudos :wink:

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 :).
