- We’re introducing Kudos Rewards as a way to recognize your contributions towards our community, check them the rewards and how to redeem them by visiting this topic.
Hi Community members!
Following some of your feedback regarding the previous Top contributor leaderboard, we have decided to replace it with a new holistic Kudos Board which would take into account not only the number of likes you received, but also various other actions/criteria - think of it as the current badge system, but much more exciting .
1. Where can you find it?
There are two ways to access the Kudos Board, you can click on the link at the top of the header …
… or navigate to the hamburger menu and click on ‘Kudos Leaderboard’.
Please note that with both options, it will open the Kudos Board in a new tab.
2. How it works
The Global Kudos Board awards ‘Kudos’ based on certain users’ events and interaction in the Community.
Categories that award Kudos
Kudos scoring criteria
The points are updated every 5 minutes for events of the day, and the board would re-calculate points from the last 10 days once per day.
|Interaction / Event||Amound of Kudos awarded|
|User invites accepted||20|
3. Which user groups are included in the Leaderboard?
At the moment, the following user groups are automatically added to the Kudos Board:
Additionally, if for whatever reason you do not want to be included in the Leaderboard, you can join our newly created ‘Leaderboard Hidden’ group. Once you’re in, your profile will be excluded from the board itself.
As this is a new feature from Discourse, we welcome your feedback to make our Kudos Board better for everyone on the Community. And if you have any suggestion/idea for future boards for specific contests/events in the future, do let us know below.
