    Reputation now displays who left rep - comments

    By popular demand, the reputation system now displays who left you positive or negative rep. Anonymous negative repping was causing too much pain. This was anonymous by default to avoid retaliatory repping where a user counters the person who left the negative rep.

    This setting works for all past and future reps so every rep left in the past will have a visible author now. We realize this can be controversial but use this information wisely and avoid retaliatory reps.

    The rep system is explained here: Rep System FAQ Please use it with respect.

    You can view who left you rep in your Control Panel .

    You cannot go back into the history of your past rep other than what is viewable now?

    Not sure a good idea. Some folks leaving negative had a reasonable expectation of privacy. You could have restarted it.

    Couple other forums with that feature - people do get pissy.

    So?

    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    Why worry about digging up bones on someone that left you neg rep 6 months ago? It's simply a mtn bike forum. Will it have an effect on your life's outcome 2, 5, 10 years from now?

    I'm not big on the whole rep thing anyways. It's only a matter of time where most users will have a big green 12 step stick to swing.

    Most of the users with huge rep power. Generally only leave a simple one sentence, snide remark. Which does'nt contribute to consumers, which is what this forum is suppost to be about. Then their little internet buddies come along. Dropping them a green turd. Giving them a reach around. Stroking their fragile internet ego.

    I don't get it.

    It's Ho get it right.

    Thanks for the new function Francois.

    Is this what they meant by the "end of the world" in terms of retaliation reps today?

    Great! Now when I pos rep somebody I don't have to waste valuable internet time signing it.

    I think it would have been cool if Francois hadn't told anybody, let people find out on their own. I'm sure there will still be a few of the idiot comments from some of the more stunned members who don't pay attention.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    I always sign it when I leave it anyways... even if it's negative.

    I guess now I should start signing it with my own name though.

    It could, if the owners of this place decide that for some greater good, real names and adresses (and it is trivial to figure it out) need to be searchable as well. (Yes, I do know it is unlikely). But, personally, I would not want my employer to easily Google out my rants that have absolutely no bearing on anything.

    Yes, anything you say online is never really anonymous, but there is some basic trust - and one of them is not making privacy and visibility changes retroactively.
