The mods deleted it so I think they did. Good call though.

They're going to have to delete another soon.

 

Btw, what does it mean: my title says "Ace Contributor"?

It means you posted a lot. Keep that up and you will become a community leader and later a community guru. Untold riches associated with that!

What?  We are just discussing what gruel is, nothing wrong with that.

That leads to a very serious question that I haven't seen addressed anywhere yet: What happens to our kudos when a thread gets closed by the mods? Do they stay in our records where they keep track of "Top Kudoed Members"? What if the kudos you earn on a particular thread help you rise from leader to guru, then that thread gets zapped? Do you get to keep your guru hat? What about the people who awarded the kudos? Do they get their kudos back? FLs' time is valuable, and forum participation represents enormous investments that we make with the understanding of receiving certain benefits in return. If we find it's just smoke and mirrors, what does that mean? Is this potentially fraudulent? Should we call the SEC? Would they answer? Can I trade in some kudos for a coffee mug?

For half a second I was thinking...why does she care about kudos!

 

I think you are right that is the thread I was thinking of.

If you lose your kudos Upwork will stop awarding  you projects.

Did they zap the one titled "Client quality is going downhill fast"? This morning I had email notices that I received several kudos for my comments on that thread but when I try to look at it, access is denied. I go to the forum and can't find it anywhere.

I say, every newbie gets 20 free kudos when their profile is approved.

On Internet forums?

@ René --

 

Gruel is the accepted food that is offered to naughty forum posters, children, and lolcows who misbehave while Mommy and Daddy are gone, and who are then punished by being sent to bed without any proper dinner.
