I should suggest that we need a live score dashboard like the one you posted today . This will help the moderators to track their scores on daily basis and they can push themselves to score more. What's your thought ?


I agree but our developer is super busy with some of the other features. So, I have to do it manually for now and I will try to do it often like every 2 days or something like that.

Hi bb, workout,

I was wondering whether rewarding users on the basis of counting the number of posts is an accurate metric.

Here's an excerpt from the very famous story of an Apple engineer who thought something was wrong with measuring productivity in writing a piece of software - "Counting lines of code was a silly measure of software productivity. He thought his goal was to write as small and fast a program as possible, and that the lines of code metric only encouraged writing sloppy, bloated, broken code."

Link to the full story: https://www.folklore.org/StoryView.py?story=Negative_2000_Lines_Of_Code.txt (short story and an interesting read)

Kudos are given more weightage and that indeed is an accurate measure that inspires posting meaningful and useful stuff for the club community members.

Not necessarily for this topic but in general, should /can we differentiate "just posting" and "posting something that drives engagement or serves the purpose"?

I agree. However, Kudos/likes/upvotes/reacts popular as with any other social media tend to be with one who is already an influencer for e.g. Ross, Kellog etc.

While schools like Owen, Rice etc don't have any followers and no matter how engaging post you like , it doesn't get any attention.

Foe e.g. Rice has a fee waiver if you apply before certain date but haven't seen any engagement. I understand from mods that Rice has similar engagement even last year.

I guess mods moderating the top schools (or say "achievable" famous schools) tend to win.

Actually there are even longer posts that are total trash and don't cover the entirety of the problem at hand
People just post about anything to get those points. seriously,... ANything
Just like I am doing with this post. But it keeps the traffic and keeps site busy

Hi,

Thanks for bringing this up. It is good to have a discussion on what performance indicators we can use.

The number of lines of code and the forum posts are completely different as the code gets rewritten all the time and in the forum, you make responses to earlier posts. Hence they cannot be compared. We have been tracking the number of posts for years and it has been a good performance indicator for us. I am happy to know what other KPI's you or anyone may have?

The kudos and posts from all the MBA forum will be taken into consideration and NOT just from the forum you are moderating. I want to make this clear. So, having one school like Rice where you are not seeing a lot of engagement shouldn't deter you from participating in the other MBA forums.

As long as you are active in the MBA forums, you will do fine in the points :) but since you have specifically signed up for a few schools, we hope that you put in most of your efforts there.

Feel free to disagree and I am happy to discuss this in our next moderator call.

Hello workout,

Great to hear that rewarding number of posts has been working well for the platform. Then must be good to follow this custom and practice.
I was just wondering rather than questioning in total disbelief.
Also, I did not intend to do a direct comparison between coding and posting.
By quoting an example, I wanted to highlight the Qualitative vs Quantitative approach.
And that's why I mentioned "just posting" and "posting something that drives engagement or serves the purpose".

Yes. I totally understood your point and just wanted to bring in as much transparency I can :) I think the "Kudos" will help us in determining qualitative posts and we have mechanisms built around it.

I don't want to dismiss any suggestions but I just want to emphasize that Kudos and post count have worked for us but if you guys think of better alternatives, I am totally on board to try them out. Let me know :)
