1. Forum Awards are important - one of the reasons I am on the forums; good for Forum spirit and encouraging participation

2. Forum Awards are not important - they are exclusive/not fair as just a few Forum Members are nominated because they have more time to be on the forums; are good photographers; can visit the parks more often than others

3. I am not bothered either way

I fully agree :thumbs_up: The monthly kudu rewards recognize the contributions of all forum members on a regular basis.

Sadly, IMO the forum has become less and less the source of valuable information about the parks that it once was, one of many reasons why I spend less time here. And why for me forum awards are irrelevant.


Just stumbled on this thread.
And have to agree with this post 100%, in particular the comments which I have highlighted.

On a personal note.
I frequently post in the Books section, sharing titles from my extensive Wildlife Book collection which I think will be of interest to other members. Lucky if I get 1 maybe 2 comments.

A few weeks ago I mentioned in the Chill Room and then started resurrecting old discussions on Kruger Roads. Once again, often get very little response.

I find it very disheartening.
