What are Kudos?
Kudos is a peer recognition program, a way to acknowledge the activity and reliability of registered members.
How does it work? Each activity a registered user performs on the portal is awarded a numerical value which is associated to the member’s profile. In other words: the higher the total number of Kudos a member has, the more active he/she is.
Kudos do not only help to locate highly active BUILD UP 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.
Following is a list of the activities awarded with Kudos:
|Register a new account||100 kudos|

What does “% Completed Profile” mean?
According to the amount of personal information provided by registered members in their profile, the system calculates a “percentage of completeness”.
|profile section||% completeness average|
|Areas of interest||10% (at least one)|
The Kudos score will appear in the user profile and will be integrated into the filter of “People” in order to see the most important and active users of the platform.
