I love the forums so far. When someone posted a solution to my problems, I have 2 choises: Solution or Kudos. The first one is obvious, but what does the second one do? And do they "stack"? Or is it only possible to activate one at a time?

Please explain

Solution is to be used when the post answers the question of the poster.
Kudos is when the poster makes a great post and someone wants to give them kudos for it.

They're for recognition of exceptional posts. They don't stack.

I really don't see the difference. Either way it's the same thing for me - if someone fixed my problem, by answering my question, I appreciate the post, respect the poster and want everyone to know that that poster does the excellent job. So I guess I just use one of the two. Solution for a good answer, and Kudos for a great answer :)

A "solution" is a tag for a technical answer that solves your problem.

A "kudo" is for posts that are more general in tone and larger in focus -- such as the discussions that take place in our business forum -- which are not technical questions but are great thoughts to consider when doing business, etc.

There are many discussions in the COW that are outside the focus of technical problems and "solution" does not work for these kinds of posts because they are not solving a problem but they are great posts with powerful ideas -- hence, the "kudo" button.

I hope that explains the difference.

Best regards,

Ron Lindeboom
