Kudos is coming soon to the Official PlayStation Forums!

Kudos is coming soon to the Official PlayStation Forums!

 

This new feature allows users to demonstrate their appreciation of forum content that they find informative, helpful, or otherwise simply pleasing - all at the click of a button.

 

When a user gives kudos to a message they are essentially applauding the author for his/her efforts. When a message receives lots of kudos it can become highlighted within the community, and accordingly the more kudos an author receives the further his/her community reputation is enhanced.

 

We expect the use of kudos to be a fun and enjoyable way for you to interact with the PlayStation community.

 

Stay tuned for more information...

Brilliant News - Thats SCEE and MusterBuster - looks like they are on a roll. And over taking SCEA

I have nothing to complain about now - if the 2.70 firmware rumours are correct and is coming out soon then the PS3 will be so good

@JordanBlack - Implementing a high post count limit to allow kudos seems stupid. It would deter new users, or encourage them to post sh*t to reach the limit, and those who cannot post like 20-30 times per day would miss out even if they were excellent members. It would just encourage a circle jerk for high posters/no lifers IMO.

That's a good idea. Should really help improve the quality of the posts. Will you be able to give negative kudos? It might bring down the number of "FAIL" and "+1" posts.

 

(Wait for it....)

Epic Fail... :)

 

Couldn't resist that.

 

Unfortunately, I think it may well have the opposite effect though, there's bound to be some idiots out there who see getting the highest negative score possible as a badge of honour... Hopefully it can be tied into a forum ban system to prevent this though.

One mention of the words 'XBOX 360' and prepare to see your Kudos plummit into the minus anyway mate. It's a good idea but too easy to abuse in my opinion.

Maybe an automatic 1-week block is in order if users reach a certain amout of negative cudos.

 

Lol. Sorry, MB. I think we may be loosing sight of the "spirit" of the kudos system! :)

 

Maybe we just forget the negative cudos idea alltogether!

I'm fear that you are.... XD

 

Let me put it this way - you will not be able to give negative Kudos. It will simply never happen!

 

However, we can moderate everything to do with Kudos, and we will be doing so.

 

There will also be extensive guidelines and FAQs on the feature so that everyone knows what it is, how to use it and importantly, when to use it. We've spent alot of time on it.

 

But sit tight! You'll find out much more soon.

Ah good.

 

So one assumes that the moderating team can remove kudos for pointless spam (or MSN type) posts?

What colour will the kudos buttons be can we have a poll to see which colour is more popular silly question i know looking forward to kudos as it might help have less nasty posts as a kudo is anonymous.

 

well done forum and thanks muster buster for letting kudos be put on
