Re: Can I opt out of kudos and badges?

Or did you find a way to revoke your kudo?

@Dain, I think I found that you can remove kudos.  Sometimes.  In some places.

 

I'm not sure of the whole picture: there are some factors I seem to remember, but can't find right now.  Anyway ...

 

Most of the time, when you see a posting, and you haven't given it a kudo, you see a green outline, green thumb, and white background, like so:

kudo no.PNG

If you have given a kudo, you see a button with a green background, and the thumb in white:

kudo yes.PNG

If you click on that icon, you should "revert" your kudo, and take it back.

 

(At some point, I've seen "faded" kudos.  I assume in those cases I've given a kudo, but can't take it back, for some reason.  Sorry, at the moment I can't find an example to illustrate.)

Re: Can I opt out of kudos and badges?

Just popping in to let you know that if you see a greyed out kudo icon it should reside on one of your own posts. This is due to the fact that you cannot kudo your own post. If you see this on another post, it could be that kudos were turned off on the post itself. 

 

If you notice this on a post and you are not sure why, feel free to ask!

Re: Can I opt out of kudos and badges?

On everyone's favorite social media outlet, Facebook, I will occasionally post something.  

 

Nothing irritates Mrs. Fly more than when I go and *like* my post.  

 

Sadly, I can't *kudos* my own posts here in Community.  If I didn't appreciate what I had to say why would I go to the effort of posting my wisdom and sharing it with others?

 

Signed,

Re: Can I opt out of kudos and badges?

I think we can upgrade the answer to "mostly".  As @SamanthaO_isc2 earlier stated, you can opt out of email alerts for both Kudos and badges.  Today, I ran across a setting to hide Kudos buttons and counts.

 

Although Kudos and Badges continue to exist, you will only see them on the summary pages and in your profile.  If these remaining remnants bother you enough, a bit of tampermonkey work could hide them.  There are examples of user blocking that may help you get started.

 

@Dain, If Kudos and Badges bother you so much, why have you given out 4 Kudos?  Was it to satisfy an internal desire to earn the "Enrich" badge? Smiley LOL

I was weak... the allure of the "Enrich" badge was just too much.

Reply via email function?  I'm still testing, but it seems to be working intermittently ...

Apparently, it does if you are not named rslade. Keeping my fingers
crossed that this email submission goes through.

I think I can change "intermittently" to "mostly." So far I've only had one
bounce from the reply via email function today.

We'll see if this gets through :-)
