good that it is for points in the Kudos program between now (July 23rd) and August 8th

otherwise, we would have a winner with the 105k kudos

I really like this new functionality and the new badges and challanges that come with it. I'm getting super excited and I also really like that we can give kudos to others.

There's just one thing that I find a little intimidating... the Leaderboard. Instead of showing the global champion wouldn't it be great to see a monthly (or weekly) leaderboard. Or maybe this can be added? For a person who just got enrolled I find this leaderboard a little disheartening.

@Svenja you are right! And we are going to be doing a quarterly rolling leaderboard! It just hasn't started yet. ;)

Thank you so much @Monique vdB , I'm glad to see my name in the leader board as on date and need to buckle my shoes to stay in the ranking.

@Monique vdB 

what kudos points count?

  • from achievments
  • from other users (let's maybe call this "doping")

@Monique vdB  -  Glad to see my name in the list. Thanks.

@Alexander Pappert - Thanks for raising the question. Do you mean challenges as achievements? What do you mean by others ('Doping' sounds really harsh and should be against the Atlympics spirit)?

@Suvradip Paul 

with "doping", I mean the kudos sent from user to user (when you post something good, or just for fun)

To clarify my question a bit:

When I look at the Top5

  • 3 have < 4k kudos
  • 1 <8k kudos
  • I am the only one with now >20k (think it was 19k when event started)

This means, you have a lot more open challenges to get kudos, so I need the "doping"   ;)

Hi @Monique vdB Thank you for the leaderboard you posted earlier, and congratulations to the top 5 members. I had a question specifically about Members category - the counting is only for the users who have "MEMBER" tag attached to their name ? or any new member (not having "MEMBER" tag) who have registered for Atlympics are also included?

@Alexander Pappert unfortunately the peer kudos doesn't count (the reporting on those numbers is a little weird, among other things).  We did release a couple of new challenges for August thoug, and "No Question Left Behind" can be completed daily! 

@Kishan Sharma anyone who is part of the Atlympics group and who is not a Leader or an Atlassian is included in the Member cohort.

@Kishan Sharma the only reason you aren't on the list is due to an error on my part; I just double checked and you are actually in first place for Members!

@Monique vdB @Bridget First of all thank you very much for organizing this event. I think Peer Kudos have came into picture for "Community Event - Member" category. Requesting you to please double check and confirm, thank you! :)

@Kishan Sharma 

peer kudos count in your profile, but as @Monique vdB wrote, they don't count for atlympian event. I think they will use there some DB screenshots where they can filter the peer kudos.

@Bridgetwhen do we know who won the challenges, or did I miss some post?

@Alexander Pappert Yes, I attended Timezone-2 closing ceremony already and my comment was based on my finding. I think you missed this post. You still have time to join Timezone 1. :-)
