Update #3 on the community kudos beta

Hello again, everyone, especially those who are new to the beta!

We have an exciting update for you, so buckle up.  First things first, our program overview is here and has been updated! If this is your first time checking us out, you should start with the overview. You can also find all our previous beta updates here. 

This update covers what's new since our last update

New: This group is now open, so you do not need moderator approval to join or read the group content. This does not mean the beta is open to everyone; we are still in beta mode and kudos is still open to a limited number of people for the time being. 

New: We may not be adding everyone, but 25,000 users (yep, that’s 25 with three zeroes) will be added to the beta next week. If you see new folks around, please welcome them warmly!

New: Badges for fighting crime spam have been released, available for moderators only.  

New: It’s here! A kudos tab has been added to your community profile and the profiles of everyone enrolled in the beta.

Note: community hovercards look different if you are in the beta. The easiest way to tell if someone is enrolled is that beta users have their kudos points and level listed on their hovercard.  To see any user’s hovercard, simply hover over their name anywhere on community:

From here, you can click on their name to be taken to their profile, where you can check out their Kudos tab. 

Once you're on the Kudos tab, you can:

  • Give kudos directly on the profile. This will avoid the currently clunky search experience, and also encourage folks to check out each other's profiles!
  • See why you got kudos. Here is where you can now find a feed of who gave you kudos and why. On the profiles of others, you can see what they have been appreciated for!  And the design even includes an aggregate count of how many kudos you've gotten in each category. 
  • See a list of all your completed challenges:  And how you earned them
  • Access the kudos FAQ: Click on the tooltip above your list of badges to access the FAQ. This will become more comprehensive over time.

We're excited to release this update and hope it really improves your experience! We are as always eager for feedback, so let us know what you think in the comments.

Thanks for being a community member!

@Jack Brickey yeah mine too, waiting for a cache flush, which I assume is some kind of magic spell?

@Jack Brickey - now that I can navigate directly to your profile, it's way easier to dish out kudos to you 😂

Sounds exciting! Started exploring the challenges. 

@Monique vdB  - Just one quick query, do we have scheduled updates on the challenges and badges earned or is it preconfigured and gets updated with the levels only? E.g. - Suppose someone new to beta in July,2021 would get new challenges in contrast to someone joined beta in June.

Monique vdB Community Manager Jul 23, 2021

@Suvradip Paul good question, new challenges appear often! So we're still adding challenges as we go.

At some point we are planning to turn on quarterly leaderboards. Everyone will still have their points but the leaderboard will reset every quarter, which means everyone who is new will get a chance to catch up with those who have been participating since the pilot phase!

Thanks @Monique vdB for clarifying. I think it's fair and this would encourage people to join, learn and contribute actively in community.

Can I participate as well? I've joined the group but I can't see the kudos tab.

Hi @Mark Jestings 

Welcome to the Community!

I think we're still in the closed beta stage, so you won't automatically see kudos yet.

@Monique vdB will be able to clarify whether you're able to join the program at the moment

Hi @Monique vdB! I hope you are well! I wanted to know if I can participate on the kudos program. Are there any empty seats left? Am I eligible to join? A feedback would be highly appreciated! Thanx!
