I have tried twice now to split the point awards in Kudoz for people who have helped me translate. In the FAQ's it says you are encouraged to do this - but I can't figure out how to do it. If I award one answerer 2 points, it doesn't give me the option to go back in and grade again to award more points to others. Am I missing something? Thanks!

Hi Tiffany Sep 19, 2005

I moved the thread to the KudoZ forum.

Splitting points is impossible - you may award points to only one answerer whose answer turned out to be most helpful to you.

P.S. Which place in the FAQ are you talking about? About this one?
20. Can I agree with more than one answer to a question?

Yes. You are encouraged to agree with as many answers as you consider correct, and disagree with as many answers as you consider incorrect.

This concerns the so-called peer-grading i.e. all those agrees/disagrees below the answers of other colleagues.

You cannot split the KudoZ points Sep 19, 2005

Just give them to the answer that was the most helpful to you.

Have a nice day,

Be generous with your thanks Sep 19, 2005

Although you can only give points to one answer, you can thank everyone who helped you. If there was some particular piece of information from an non-selected answer that helped you, whether from another answerer or a peer grader on any answer, it is nice if you thank them by name and mention in what way their comment helped.

If the correct answer was offered by more than one person, the custom is to award the points to the one who answered first and/or the one who best supported his/her suggestion with helpful references.
