Participating is not enough Jun 23, 2004

Hi Silvia,

KudoZ points are assigned only, if the asker chooses your answer. From what I can see, none of your answers has been chosen as the most helpul until now.

Hi, did you get a mail which stated: "Congratulations your answer was chosen to be most useful (or similar)".
Only in this case you can be sure your have been awarded Kuodz points.

Hi, Silvia! Jun 23, 2004

In order to get Kudoz points the asker has to choose your answer. If the asker does not grade the question, the robot grades it automatically based on peer agreement: either the answer with more agrees or if there is just one answer, it must have at least two agrees.
The asker may award you 1 to 4 points and the robot always awards 4 points.

Good luck!
Andrea

Hi Silvia,

Feel free to browse in other members' profiles. On the top right side of the profiles you will see a tab called Kudoz. Click there and you can see a list of all the answered (and asked) Kudoz questions for this member. You will notice that mostly, only one question in a few is rewarded with points, especially when a member is new to Kudoz.

Good luck with Kudoz and welcome to Proz!

Stefanie

Keep on answering! Jun 24, 2004

Keep on answering, because even if an answer doesn't get points, it may be useful.

Some good answers simply do not fit the asker's context, but they may be useful for others who search the glossaries later.

Only one gets points each time, but it often takes two or three suggestions to find the final answer.

And in fact 'wrong' answers may warn others not to fall into the same trap!

For instance if the asker posts a word like 'accessory' and gets wildly different answers because the word has different meanings depending on context.

Best of luck - you're sure to get in with the best answer sooner or later!
