Absolutely not true Jun 19, 2008

I've no idea where you heard that, but it's definitely not true. Kudoz points are eternal.

What might change is your ranking based on the number of points you've earned in the last year, but that's all, and even that is only relative to people who've earned exactly the same number of points overall as you for a given language pair and field.

Well, if so, then you know more than I do. I only just became a KudoZ moderator, but I have never seen an option nor a regulation to set KudoZ points to zero. And I would probably resign if there was.

No, I have 3 years here and I can say that is absolutely false.

You're probably thinking of this: Jun 20, 2008


Maybe you're heard something like this:

"- Time passes (potentially causing your point total over the last three months to drop)."

If you go to the FAQ about Kudoz and look at No. 30, you will read that.

This means that if you look at the leaders in points for the past 3 months, your total may be lower, but that is simply because a different 3-month period is being considered.

If you go to the 12-month or all-time totals, your points will still be there.
