Hey, I asked this from Community manager Rorey.
"The music forums are excluded from Kudos leaderboards along with the "Welcome to the Community" category and any posts by employees. The reason is so we can reward folks such as yourself who solve the most problems. It doesn't seem quite fair that folks contributing to the music discussions get reckognized when the folks that do the most troubles shooting dont. - Rorey, Community manager"
So Kudos and Posts aren't counted on those areas.
