Update 18 May 2009:
We have reduced the number of points for making comments to articles to 2 points, as we noticed that some of the comments are pretty thin.

However, when your comment or article receives Kudos from others, you will get 10 points instead of 1 previously. This should encourage members to write responsibly, and to allow others to show their appreciation to members who care to share by giving Kudos to their hard work.

Also, members who give Kudos to comments and articles will also get 1 KiasuPoint for taking the trouble to show their appreciation :D

If you are logged in, you should see it at the KiasuParents.com homepage (rightmost column, under the Activities section). Alternatively, go to your account profile (either by clicking on the My Account link on the homepage, or the Profiles button in the Forum). It is listed on your Profile page.

What are the perks for the points?

KiasuParents.com is continually evolving to bring in new innovations to benefit our community. KiasuPoints was invented primarily to facilitate our Kiasu Auctions so that we can reward our contributors for the effort they take in sharing their thoughts and experiences, or simply helping out others on the site.

Yes, there should be an "on-boarding" guide... it's just that we are still experimenting with a number of things and need time to see what works and what doesn't. (Actually, the REAL reason is that I'm too lazy to get it done yet :) ).

Anyway, if you wish to have the blogging facilities in KiasuParents.com, you need to have the KiasuParent status (Yes, it's the equivalent of the GEP in our Primary Schools :wink: ). You can either write to us directly, or simply post useful information on the Forums. If your post is selected for Portal publication, we will upgrade you to the KiasuParent status and you get to post and edit your posts by yourself.

You cannot give Kudos to yourself :) . So Kudos will automatically be disabled for all the comments and articles that belong to you. But it will be enabled for others who are reading your comments.

Note also that you can only give Kudos once to each article or comment.
