What is this Kudos widget now found on the left side of the screen on each post? (The one with the star.)
Kudos is a new 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 forum and find a post particularly valuable, click the star to give it a kudo!
A little about kudos, courtesy of wikipedia ...
Kudos (pronounced /ˈkjuːdɒs/, often /ˈkuːdoʊz/), from the Greek κῦδος - 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.
