Hi Community newcomers! :wave:

In this topic, we’ll look at our Kudos Board, a way for us to identify and reward the most active and high-performing members of our Community.

Accessing the Kudos Board

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 β€˜Kudos Leaderboard’.

How it works

1. Kudos scoring criteria

The Board awards β€˜Kudos’ based on your continuous interactions within the Community. A list of these interactions and the amount of Kudos awarded are as below:

Kudos are updated every 5 minutes for events of the day, and the board would re-calculate Kudos from the last 10 days once daily.

5. Notes

  1. Each Kudos Board last for two years. For example, the 2022 Kudos board will last from 1/1/2022 to 31/12/2023).
  2. When the current Kudos Board ends, your Kudos will be reset and won’t be carried over to the next Kudos Board.
  3. Any interactions within our minigames e.g. Tester Personalities game WILL NOT be counted towards your total Kudos on the board.
  4. Interactions within our Miscellaneous category WILL NOT award you with Kudos.
  5. If you redeem the KRE (Katalon Runtime Engine), KSE (Katalon Studio Enterprise), or TestCloud, you are bound to each tool’s respective license policy and support policy.
