How do I take my kudos back?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I gave someone kudos by accident on Strava. How do I take my kudos back? The ride was not deserving of a kudos. Thanks.

I just want to see where this goes. I'm liking it so far. Where's the kudos button on this thing?

I thought about that, but what if he doesn't wave back next time we cross each other? How do I explain that to my group?

I want to know how to reject Kudos when they are not deserved.

That's a good point too. I've received kudos for hour-long walks with my GF!

I hate to detail a good circlejerk with a serious answer, but you can just go ahead and click the kudos button again to take it away.

OMG! That's totally worthy of kudos!

But on topic, there's no way to unkudo afaik. Accidental kudos live on forever.

??? I've never been able to take one back. A brief "sorry, didn't mean to hit the kudo button" does seem to shut down the comments tho.

Your life is like a jar of kudos - you only have so many you can dole out before you empty the jar and the remainder of your life is like a dry, sandy, kudoless desert.

You need to be more careful.

I'd give this thread kudos, but I'm not sure it deserves it... Rather than jumping right on in and saying "kudos," I'm going to contemplate it for the next few hours, weighing its kudoness.

No rash decisions over here...

This thread is not deserving of a kudos.
I am worried I may endorse it by mistake though. My internet kudos are almost as important as participation trophies so I want to be very careful with them.
What should I do?
I am to the point where I may start losing sleep over it.

A few years ago there was a member here - he mainly posted in the Clydes section but did venture into the 41 from time to time - who seriously suggested that BF should have a FB-style "like" button, because he didn't feel he was getting enough positive feedback on the ride pictures he was posting. Validation is clearly too serious a matter for jokes...

Apparently invalidation is important to a great segment of the population as well...

Funny you should mentioned waving, because I've come to see them as little more than virtual waves hello. The only time I don't give one to someone I follow is when the person was running or on Zwift. I don't want to see that

That is the very first thing I thought of trying, but I didn't want to end up giving him two accidental kudos, so I decided against it.

That's what I feared. Might have to look for a new MUP.

Please hurry spring time, and warm riding weather.....

No kudos expected, nor solicited, thank you very much, I don't wish to be responsible for someone ending up in that dry, sandy, kudoless desert on my behalf.

Not to derail @PepeM 's totally valid and important question, but I post on an auto racing forum that has a "like" system for posts and it isn't so bad, sometimes if someone posts something funny or whatever and you want to let them know but don't have anything to add, just "liking" the post is a nice option. If people panic about their lack of validation, there are deeper issues at play that a like system can't help.

Such a good choice. I did this... once. I kudo'd a ride for a former teammate that I now despise (he started wearing a Giro Air Attack with the visor all the time), and I tried un-kudo'ing, but I accidentally kudo'd again. He texted me within 5 minutes and invited me out for a beer.

NO THANK YOU! It was a total disaster. I'm still a little shaken.

Of course there are. But were a "like" button to be mooted, I'd be forced to campaign for a "dislike" button. Now that would really improve matters. LOL

Now you're talking. If we had "like" and "dislike" options, they could potentially organize the sub-forums and threads based on popularity or lack thereof.

This is where it gets crazy- maybe they could change the "like/dislike" terminology to something less reminiscent of Facebook, and call it up or down "votes", and you could have a bunch of special interest topics beyond just cycling. Wouldn't it be nice to have a place to discuss your favorite podcast or share memes, for instance?

I think I'm on to something here. Anyone want to fund my kickstarter campaign to revamp the site in this manner?
