    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: <a href="http://forums.mtbr.com/faq.php?do=search&q=reputation&match=all&titlesonl y=0">Rep System FAQ</a> Please use it with respect.

    You can view who left you rep in your <a href="http://forums.mtbr.com/usercp.php">Control Panel </a>.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks for the new function Francois.

    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 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.

    Francis I think it was a bad idea to reveal who neg reps ya.
    Should've at least started from scratch.
    Positive rep, based on participation, or no rep at all. Rep system is Lame.IMHO.
    I went and looked who all the anonymous d-bags that neg repped me an all I can say is if you get your panties all bunched up, and want to tell me, then at least man or woman up and show some balls by signing your drivel.
    Rant over.

    OMG - This is the end of neg repping as we know it.

    Edit: I just checked my rep (all positive, I'm such a beloved guy), and all but one were already signed.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    nvm, found it... not surprised with which morons left negatives. Wonder if they'll have the balls enough to leave such comments in the future though now that its no longer anonymous.

    I don't really care about rep. but its nice to see who left the comments whether it was positive or negative.

    Ha Ha, I think it is great. Just realized it is retroactive.

    Yes it does. I bet your name is not "Fishbucket" either. Mine is not "Axe".

    Different online communities have different rules, but people's expectation is it stays the same. It would take a few seconds to, say, pinpoint my address, name of my business, etc. with a reverse IP lookup, if admins decide for some reason to publish it in the open. I do not want that. I have no idea who are the people on the other end of the line.

    It is perfectly fine the way it is now - I do post on other forums configured the same way - it is the retroactive nature of a change that I think is inappropriate. I can not trust people who act in such a way. (Even as this is a minor one and will not affect me in any meaningful way).

    By the way - a useful feature on Silverfish forum rep - you can revoke it for some period of time. Cuts down on mistakes.

    I find it funny that there are people leaving negative rep for spelling errors.......and trying to defend their lame offensive comments below the radar instead of out in the open.

    Pretty chicken-**** in my opinion.
    How can anyone who's been riding as long as I have, be so slow???

    There are always those who stand up to be counted and those who don't. There are those who contribute to discussion and those who lurk. As citizens of a free country there are those who vote and those who don't but who we vote for is always confidential.

    Remaining anonymous is valuable. I have no problem with negative rep.
    I don't rattle.

    In the open? A dude named "Axe" with a crazy russian penguin for an avatar talking to "Fishbucket"?

    If I neg repped you, I would have preferred to do it anonymously. Less butthurt for everybody.

    I don't pay much attention to the rep thing, but I'm appreciative the powers here made the effort to respond to members' desires. Bravo, guys.

    I already know who that spineless MF is who left me that anon potshot anyway

    Cheers, all,

    I think it is REALLY bad form to let someone believe they are commenting anonymously, and then make it non-anonymous retroactively.

    It is a SERIOUS breach of trust.

    Make whatever policy you want with regard to rep, but changing this retroactively was in really bad taste.

    It's no skin off my back (I very seldom leave neg rep), and I do not plan on retaliating for any petty ones I received (cough006_007cough), but this was not handled properly.
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    Yep, that what I thought. I could not care less about the whole rep thing, but I just can't trust owners of this community. Too bad, I liked to participate.

    I am concerned as I do know for a fact that my employer did extensively search out my online presence - I do not have anything to hide, but I do prefer that not to be easily searchable or public. People changing visibility retroactively are not cool.

    This is going to be fun.
    The retroactive part is probably not the most appropriate action, but it sure does make things more interesting.

    Why not have positive rep only? It's not worth the time to neg rep someone.
