Kudos

Postby jacmoe » Wed Feb 02, 2011 2:09 am

Maybe you've noticed that you've got a new 'Kudos' field in your profile? :)

We have installed a Kudos mod which enables you to give Kudos to the author of a post.

So if you like a post because you find it useful, and you think the author deserves a Kudos for writing it, you can click the new Kudos button ('thumbs up') and the Kudos will be recorded.

Why did we do this? :)

Let me quote our project founder Sinbad:
I think in cases where we want to recognise good community members, some kind of karma mod might be useful where users can give kudos / karma themselves. I generally try to avoid mods, but this is one case where it would probably be justified, to make sure people get recognised for their good everyday work in the community


So, what's the basic idea?

Let me quote Masterfalcon:
masterfalcon wrote:So the basic idea is similar to rating posts on stackoverflow? I could see that being helpful, especially to new users. It could increase the confidence they have in certain peoples' advice.


Post count is not always an indicator of quality.
Kudos count could be.

Also, we want to recognize all those community members who take the time - and put effort into - writing quality posts.

Thanks! :wink:

I clicked to "thumbs up" and got the notice: Invalid kudos
The counter is still 0 for jacmoe.

Thanks Beauty! :)
It looks like this mod doesn't work in a global sticky.

Thanks for my first codo. :D
Unfortunately now the thumbs up symbol is not visible anymore.

Now the kudos counter works, but I still get the "Invalid kudos" message. (Now this happened in the main forum.)

When a post got a bonus point, the thumbs up symbol changes to Image.
It's an action button, but it looks like a mark for a BAD POST.
Better would be to highlight/ink the thumbs up symbol (instead of showing a thumbs down symbol).

This was not helping. The thumbs buttons are still unvisible.

Kudos are probably not available in the Announcements forum.

They were available last night.
Right -- in other sections of the add-ons forum the button is visible.

The kudos button is also working here in the announcement section, but perhaps only for mods which however would not make sense. I will ask jacmoe...

Sometimes the phpBB permissions setup is too confusing..
Thanks for your patience, guys! :)
