Kudos are virtual credits awarded to registered users, each time they contribute content to Joinup. In other words: the higher the total number of Kudos a member has, the more active he/ she is.
How does it work? Each activity a registered user performs on the portal is awarded a credit, a numerical value, which is associated to the member’s profile.
Kudos do not only help to locate highly active members within the community; they also serve to track down users with comments, cases and posts highly rated by their peers. Kudos also affect the order of the People’s list, giving more visibility and recognition to active members.
