How to give Kudos

A kudo is a way to give positive feedback to another member based on their initial post or reply.



Why give kudos?

There's a couple of reasons to give Kudos – it’s good for the community and good for the member who is receiving the Kudos! It helps identify great posts, when you're scanning posts you can see particularly good posts/threads that have a few ‘Kudos’.


Additionally, Kudos act as a way of recognising the time and effort someone has put in and encourages good discussion. The number of Kudos someone received also helps their community ranking.

What's in it for me?

Giving Kudos feels good, and if that's not enough, giving Kudos is built into some of the ranking formulas, so along with a whole bunch of other factors – it can help increase your rank and contributes to the person's rank who is receiving the Kudos, so not only are you helping others, you're also helping yourself!
