    Interesting New Feature: Rep Comments No Longer Anonymous

    Just clicked over to my account page and noticed that rep comments are no longer anonymous. You can see who made which comments and when... which may not always come as a surprise.

    It's like an MTBR Xmas present!
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    LOL, have you been hiding under a rock GM, a few other changes aswell, only 5 reps a day, it takes 200points to move up one, all of us over 100 had 100 points stripped, lol, its the great rep rape of 2012.
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....:cool:

    This is the first I've heard of this. I stopped getting excited about the rep system here some time ago. Most people that gave me rep would sign their name anyway.

    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    I think it's a good idea, sort of in keeping with the "if you won't say it to someone's face, don't post it on the internet" philosophy that I try and subscribe to. But I don't think it should have been retroactive....
    Strava made me do it....

    Bah, that's what makes it so fun!

    Most people had already started to sign their positive reps anyhow. Negative ones, on the other hand...

    that sounds boring.

    but you mentioned snowshoeing, so it made all the difference...

    any neg reps that came as a (no) surprise?

    It may be something you can fix with settings but I can only see back to last March so nothing too earth-shattering but there were some very odd ones way back when MTBR started with the rep thing that would be very interesting to see now.

    Same here, and likely for others too. Luckily, it's limited to those that know who they are. We'll just leave it at that.

    i like it. keeps the negative nancys in check. maybe it'll be used to actually single out negative posts.

    Yep, my only negative rep was from the usual suspect and his Mrs. I haven't been posting much since this rep business started, so I don't have much (or my posts are very bland ).

    nah, post what you want nerdgirl...you or anyone else should not be silenced by the self-appointed thought police. i'd say more but I don't want to make the anon neg repper cry, and possibly live up to my self-title.

    Never really cared about all that rep crap until I recently checked mine and wondered who gave me negative rep. I too got one from the Mrs. for posting a Frostbike video back in 2011...

    I never look at my Rep - mostly don't care.
    Just looked now and odd, my only recent neg rep looks like they are errors where someone clicked the wrong thing - no comment on non-controversial statements where the neg repper agreed with me.
    Too bad it only goes back a few months - always wondered who neg repped me for saying that Turkey Point conditions were good back last spring.

    It will all be okay. If it leaps just close your eyes and thinking of winter in England.

    I like giving reps to people that have contributed in a positive way to mountain biking.
    by that i mean things like trail building and teaching newbies how to ride.
    people like garage monster and nerdgirl have been mentioned a number of times in building trails.
    single sprocket and cyclelicious have done quite a bit for trails around here.
    crash&bern has been real busy locally building and maintaining trails.(and fighting the evil horse people)
    he has also spent time teaching newbies some skills and spent quite a bit of time teaching kids.
    I've also encountered Oggie on the trails teaching kids the skills.
    these are the people that are helping our sport grow and deserve reps.
    and there are alot more like them out there.
    i don't pay attention to all the trash talk, it's these contributions that count.

    Me too. I'm fairly abrasive though and have been known to offend. How do you neg rep the nerds tho???
