[INFO] Kudos Leaderboard Removal

11 replies 339 views Edited Aug 17, 2012

Hey everyone. As an FYI we have taken down the kudos leaderboard based on community feedback. You can still give kudos like normal but the leaderboard will no longer be shown. This is part of our continued efforts to improve the forum layout and give our community the best experience possible. Thanks everyone and we appreciate your patience during this re-structuring! :smileyhappy:

 

Please feel free to share your thoughts on this change below. Thanks!

Personally, I do not like this change.

 

I understand that people saw the leaderboard as a intrical way for users to gather kudos through unmeritable posts and threads. However, what's to stop people from giving kudos to undeserving posts and threads? Who's to say that kudos kings will stop hording kudos?

 

I think this change is simply fixing a symptom and not the actual disease.

 

I can't seem to understand how the removal of features enhances our experience... Could you please explain the specific feedback that generated such a removal of the kudos leaderboard?

 

I think you guys and girls are doing an awesome job, and I'm confident you guys will continue to impress. The mods are awesome people (I miss Sushi, my punching bag :smileysad: ), and the Lithium people are also cool lurkers :smileyvery-happy: I just want to know why the removal of the kudos leaderboard was so dire.

 

Thanks :smileyhappy:

The difference is, while kudos hoarding may continue, people that game it will stop being rewarded for it. Surely the fact that a post has a lot of kudos is a merit on its own and serve as a good middle ground between pro and anti camps.

Who cares about this...what I would like to see addressed are the trolls that make thread after thread under multiple accounts just so they can comment to boost their own post counts.

Well, I spend most of my time over in the PSABR section. And the top kudo'd posters were actually deserving. It was nice to see who was receiving a lot since them it meant something worth reading was up. I understand the change, however I'm not fond of it. Might as well remove the entire kudo system to be honest. Now it just seems a tad, pointless.

I don't know, there are plenty of news sites that use a Kudos or Karma or other point system with no set leaderboard. Nobody in those places find it too pointless.

To me it just sounds like sour grapes. "I can't be #1 so the new rulez R stoopid waaah!". Without the leaderboard the Kudos system will get more sensible use at least.

For the record we (the MVPs) have seen plenty of cases of abuse with the Kudo system. This led to user losing all their kudos or receiving a straight up ban. The kudos were added as a friendly reward system, but people tend to abuse it. I personally do not agree that the leaderboards needed removing, but I do believe that people need to be more careful with how they hand out these rewards.

 

I personally only give one when I see a post that is either informative or helpful. A lot of people do not think like this I am afraid. There was talk of removing the system all together, but I am happy to say that did not happen.

 

Cheers, Brrnout

I think it was a good idea to remove the Kudo leaderboards.

 

eliminates ppl from boosting kudos.

 

I am also loving the Homepage with the featured discussion.

 

Nice and clean.

 

So far beyond jive.

 

Thank you

I turned off Kudos just prior to the leaderboard removal. I thought the '128-bit' & above qualification we had at one point was a good enough setup =\ Once it was open to everyone, the abuse started happening.

Since the boards are removed though, can we have the tech people kill the dead space on the right hand side now by extending over the center section and maybe extending the view of thread titles (so we can see the entire names)?

isnt the top tags in that section though...

 

Where would they put that?

 

I ended up zooming out one click and everything fits on the screen so I dont need to scroll to the left like I did before.
