Kudos is an important feature we've enabled in the Lenovo Community for members to recognize the best contributions of other members and to let them know that they have a shared a great thought, idea, or solution. While one post may become a solution, there were likely a number of strong contributions along the way... and it's great to recognize those too!
As you browse the forums and find a post particularly valuable, click the star to give it a kudo!
Likewise, you can give a kudo to KB articles that helped solve your problem or were particularly helpful - this helps the community not only recognize it's most valuable contributors, but also allows Lenovo to better understand what kinds of articles and information are most valuable to customers.
Here is what the Kudos icon looks like in the forum - it is the white start on the blue background found to the left of each post....
Click the star to recognize the post or article with a star.
The number which appears is the total number of kudos that this post has received so far. Click the number displayed in the kudo box to see a list of other members who found this post valuable.
A member may award a particular post only one kudo, and may not kudo their own posts.
Look for leader boards to see who and what has been voted as valuable over time in the community!
Within the Community Knowledge base, the kudo graphic is in the top right corner of each article and appears slightly different, but works the same way...
Kudos (pronounced /ˈkjuːdɒs/, often /ˈkuːdoʊz/), from the Greekκῦδος - not to be confused with κύδος "taunt" kydos, (literally "that which is heard of'') means "fame" and "renown" resulting from an act or achievement. Extending "kudos" to another individual is often done as a praising remark. It entered English as British university slang in the early 1800s. In Standard British English, as in Greek, Kudos is a singular and not a plural noun, and is used exclusively as such in Britain. However, in common use in the US the noun is often plural: She received many kudos ['ku:doʊz] for her work.
