I have answered at least 6 questions but no KudoZ have been added to me
Does anybody know why is that?

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.

| sure you were awarded the points??? || Jun 23, 2004 |
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.

| i know. it's so tough in here, Silvia :-) || Jun 24, 2004 |

dont't get too despondent!
| 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!
