Thanks bb on taking forward this initiative.
Question - Should not these TOP 20 users be notified telling - "Congratulations !!! You have received the highest Kudos for the month of July 2011? "
I know this will not matter to the regulars like :you, Bunuel, fluke, walker, etc. BUT it will matter to someone newly joining this league. Just my 2 cents !!!

The mind-boggling thing is that the spot #5 was at 31 Kudos in July and is at 31 in August.... who would have figured... and Karishma is #4 month over month.

P.S. I also got the same number - 71 in both months.... is this a conspiracy?

As per Wikipedia: Kudos (from Greek κῦδος) is an English word meaning acclaim or praise for exceptional achievement.

In GMAT Club speak - it is points that reflect your level of participation and input on GMAT Club.
Getting 25 Kudos and 100 posts or 50 Kudos allows access to the GMAT Club Tests.

Hi BB

A quick question:

goalset gave me 2 kudos yesterday, taking my kudos tally to 11 - my profile reflects 11 kudos.

But when I go to the list of kudos I received, goalset's 2 kudos are not in the list.

Any reason why?

Cheers

Santanu

Thanks PTK!

I can see the 2 new kudos now - probably the new links get updated once every day - and may be not immediately.

bb I just want to say thanks for implementing the Kudo system. I think it holds a lot of value for the members of this forum. It enables us to offer a tangible "high five" and reaffirm the rewards for offering great advice and giving helpful solutions to tough GMAT problems. The biggest benefit, for me, is the rewards you offer to individuals who make a genuine impact in this community. By offering the ability to use kudos to purchase GMAT Club quant test access, you reward community service and help those who get kudos gain access to some rather amazing material. (a big thumbs up for offering the tests/analytics on holidays!!). Seriously, thank you for that opportunity.

I just wanted to make sure my gratitude was expressed in a public way. I owe a lot to this community and to the help it has given me through my own GMAT journey.

Detailed Kudos Stats

The first table is sorted by Received Kudos, the second one - by Given Kudos.

In older threads, I've seen a Guest account, which I assumed was from a time when someone could post without registering, with 17,000+ kudos given away. Are those kudos not reflected in the charts?

No, those Kudos are not reflected. Right now, only registered members can give and receive Kudos. These tables show the stats for real users only.
