We have added a view of Total Kudos given within the thread to be visible in each Forum.

Curious about any feedback - do you find it helpful or cluttered?
The idea was to help you find the most Kudos'ed threads easily and find the best content faster.

How do we calculate the numbers by those little thumbs? Those are Kudos points awarded by members to all posts within the thread. Want to learn about Kudos?

Appreciate any feedback,
Best Regards,
BB.

Below is an example of how the Support Forum looks with the Kudos thumbs highlighted

- how is it calculated? I am guessing you don't want more than X % of the posts to be tagged like that?
Otherwise it doesn't really matter and doesn't really differentiate topic?
- Maybe keep the symbol (with the text on hover) and have the # of time an expert answered?

I really liked it. If the thread author is BB, Bunuel, GMATLA or a couple of other heavy guys and there is a few kudos you can be sure that is good crap

I could see it being useful in the GMAT forums, it may give people a better idea of the more popular review materials. It would be more useful if there was a way to sort by it though.

We have added the Expert reply in the Math Forums to test the functionality out and will be rolling it out to other forums later on: gmat-quantitative-section-7/

is this what you meant?

one more thing related to EXPERTS REPLY, Don't you think it would be better to place the two words(EXPERTS REPLY) under a separate column. I think the present way is disturbing the uniformity and appearance.(sorry, my personal opinion though).

I think having it on the left is actually a distraction and it takes me longer to look for threads.

The ability to sort topics by Kudos is coming soon.

Thank you. Good idea.
Let me play with it a bit (I am not a big fan of adding another column) but if we can make it look good, then absolutely!!!

Good point! I don't think these show up on the search pages in general or the tags pages such as Hard PS Questions. I will put in a request to add these! (probably a day if it is easy or a week if it is hard)
