What is kudos?
Kudos (from Greek meaning glory/praise) is a scoring system to acknowledge the activity of portal members. Each activity of registered users on the portal is awarded a numerical value which is associated with the member’s profile. In other words: The higher the number of Kudos a member has, the more active the user is.
Kudos also affects the order in which users appear in the People section by sorting members according to their amount of kudos, thus giving more visibility and recognition to active members.
Below is a list of Kudos points awarded for each activity (as of 16 May 2012):
|Become a member of a community||100 points|
|Become a facilitator of a community||500 points|
|Rating a portal item||5 points|
|Propose a portal item (News, articles, directory, TV)||400 points|
|Propose a new community||500 points|
|Post a project/event||400 points|
|Blog post or comment||100 points|
|No login to the portal during a month||-100 points|
* The points are awarded when content is proposed/published by the user. However, points will be deducted, if content is rejected/deleted by the editorial team.
