They don't deserve kudos...

47 replies 4 views Edited Apr 7, 2009

For doing their jobs.

 

I'm tired of seeing them in the list of top kudoed authors, when they're only posting because its a part of what they're paid to do.

 

 

Sure, once in a while, something seems to be genuinely worthwhile as a response or post , go for it, but the whole lot of you who give them kudos any time they post something new... Knock it off already.

 

Subwaydesign got into the list because he posted an idea about a PS3 home bundle and really did something worthwhile by being proactive as a posting member of the community. I've seen people cry "KUDO ABUSE" before, but here when there's an obvious case, you don't read a word. So, again, knock it off already, jumping them to the top of the list of kudoed authors makes it harder to find worthwhile and meaningful posts coming out of the community & that's why the system was created in the first place.

 

They float all of those threads as information for the community, because that's their job... They don't deserve kudos for doing that.

Are kudos used for something I'm unaware of?

if you take them to the store, i think you can trade them for something REALLY cool.

 

that and they move 'popular' and 'relevant' threads higher in the search list...

     I do have to say that I agree with you on this one. The ones that are getting Kudos should be the active members on the forum. CydoniaX, Locust_Star, & BuggieTechnica work for Sony and i'm sure the kudos really don't do anything for them at all. They just post what they are paid to and that is that. Every now and then they post in another thread when they find time, not very often that I have seen though. I don't think that they should be getting all these kudos when they are just doing their job either. As much as I respect the Home Coummunity Managers and what they do, I still disagree with giving them kudos on every post that they make.

 I agree too. The only time they deserve kudos is when they own someone.

I do give kudos to CydoniaX and Locust_Star if I feel what they had posted was sound, yet the responses are negative. It is my virtual "pat on the back" and a "thank you" for the work they are doing. I want them to know that I support their efforts to make Home and this forum better and more interesting.

 

As for the rest of the community, I will give a kudo to ideas that I agree with or to a well thought out positive post (whether I agree with the statement or not). But, if someone has a good idea, but their post is very negative (cursing or putting blame on someone) I will not kudo their message.

A lot of posts on this forum don't deserve kudos, but they still get them.  It's because people are abusing the kudos system to get their friends to the top of the list.  I don't use kudos any more, even on posts that do deserve them.  It's useless at this point.  They should just remove the kudos system altogether since it has no value.

If that was directed at me, I am fine with that.  As I stated before, kudos have no value.
