SophosFreeTalk has a reputation management system that’s based on what other users think. If you really like someone’s post, give it kudos. That way, other users will see that the post is highly regarded by other users. It doesn’t have to be an accepted solution yet. Instead, it perhaps gives some valuable insight into how a problem might to solved, or perhaps it simply entertains. The SophosFreeTalk community is supposed to be fun as well as informative.
If you’re responsible for a post that earns kudos, you’re reputation is also enhanced. There’s a “Top Kudoed contributor” display both for the community and for the individual forums. Earning kudos helps gain you promotion through the SophosFreeTalk ranking system.
So, be generous. If you like a post, use the kudos system to reward its author.
