It happens that sometimes, we feel that some kudoz points must be awarded to another of an answerer or so. Say, you have awarded 4/3 to the correct answer, which is containing all kinds of references etc.
Still you may sometimes feel that another of an answerer does have some uniqueness in his/her answer and you feel a single or two points to be given to that answerer as well.
Is this option available in proz? If yes, then please tell me how to use it. If no, then I feel it 'll be good to add such facility in kudoz area.

Through thank-you's Jun 24, 2004

Although there is no option to give partial points, other askers who helped you will appreciate your thanks. When you select your chosen answer, you have a chance to make comments. Here you can discuss any factors you considered in determining the best translation of your term, and you can mention and thank by name all the answerers who helped you.

My point of view is that the asker should be given an opportunity to grade the best answer, and it might look as small site improvement if all other answers could be graded automatically with minimum KudoZ points. The question is whether that would increase traffic on the site or not, which then imposes other questions related to technical support.
However, I strongly support improvements and therefore believe that participants will be given additional option while grading their KudoZ question.

It is possible to award points to only one answerer Jun 24, 2004

While I am always open to improvements, the fact that only one person can be awarded points is an integral part of the way KudoZ works. GoodWords' suggestion to thank the others is the best answer, I think.

Thanks for the suggestion, PRAKAASH.
