Events [back to top]
Ku-do [koo-doh] -noun, plural -dos for 2.
1. honor; glory; acclaim: No greater kudo could have been bestowed.
2. a statement of praise or approval; accolade; compliment: one kudo after another.
B. What are kudos on AdultMatchdoctor?
Kudos are a way to show praise or approval on a member's blog. The concept of the system is to give "kudos" to blogs that you connect with or thought were really well done. 'Giving someone kudos' means acknowledging that you approve and really like their post. Kudos are totally anonymous. Your kudos cannot be tracked back to you and you will not know who has given kudos to your blog.
C. How do I give kudos?
You can give a kudo on a blog by clicking on the green smile face icon. Each time you give a kudo, it will reduce the amount of kudos you have to give by one. Once you use up all your kudos, you will no longer be able to give kudos until you receive more.
D. How many kudos do I get?
The total amount of kudos you receive daily will be based off of different variables. If you're a new user, you may have a very low number of kudos to give. As you use and interact with the site, the number of daily kudos you receive will increase. If your limit is 5 kudos/day, you will not exceed that limit, so it is best to use them each day. If you don't use your 5 kudos, you will not get 5 more and have 10. You will remain at 5 kudos.
E. How do I know how many kudos I have left to give?
The number of kudos you have remaining are displayed under your screenname located in the header of the site.
F. Why do we have limited kudos to give?
By putting a limit on kudos, their value is increased and this should entice you to "spend" them wisely. You should want to give kudos to blogs that you felt were worth spending one of your "kudos" on.
