Good point @revjonty I actually have no idea, but then I don’t really care that much, I shouldn’t think I feature on any list as I don’t do H&S at all, I tried, but too many people are on it immediately. The only thing I will say is, why is it not widely known?
@the_islander wrote:Click to reveal@revjonty I completely agree with you regarding the announcement board, it's very easy to play the game there if you get in quick with a favourable opinion, seeing the "great job" responses getting double figure kudos just because they're on the first page of the thread getting the views can be frustrating when a post in H&S with a perfect answer doesn't get anything, but that's what the BA setters were introduced to try and help improve. The users of the forums are different too and has a big effect, new members after help don't understand the significance of kudos or BAs whereas frequent visitors to the site looking at the announcements would do and are more inclined to give kudos to like minded posts. Its not a perfect system by far as we all know.
@extreme_one the leaderboard has always been around and has shown kudos gained on the whole forum, originally you couldn't earn kudos in GD (or whatever name it had back then) and when kudos were introduced there, they were not included in the leaderboard. I'm unsure whether this was a giffgaff decision or if members were asked about it (might be worth a search to find out) but judging on how many perceived GD kudos back then I should imagine it was a move most members would have supported.
You're on this page with 856 kudos, if you haven't already found it 👍
@the_islander something happened on the communty that made me think of this thread again. So I looked up my place again, and it transpires that I'm now on this page, with 815 kudos.
So in a little over a month, 41 (of the good kind) kudos have vanished! Huh?
And that's depsite the fact I've earned roughly 370 additional kudos (the wrong kind, clearly) since this discussion took place.
This whole system is so full of holes it's ridiculous.
That's bizarre @extreme_one on my view it says you're #381 with 873 kudos?!
I agree it's bizarre @the_islander, even moreso now I've checked again and I'm no longer on page 20, but back on page 19 with 873 kudos.
It probably sounds as if I'm imagining things, I wish I'd screenshotted it now.
There's definitely something up with the database though as it was showing a different value earlier.
It turns out it does show a different result depending on whether or not you're logged in.
This is the view I get when I'm logged out:
Thanks for the update @t_will
I was more approaching the issue from the viewpoint of trying to understand it, rather than how it beneffited (or not) me personally.
I like to know how things work, and when they appear not to, or not in the logical sense, then that frustrates me.
Looking forward to seeing your improvements in the future...
ps. I'm now a member of the 10,000+ Kudos (despite them mostly being of the wrong variety)
