For a few months, we've been running a test where some members were able to see reputation (rep) given on posts, within the following limits:
- Only positive rep is visible. Neutral and negrep is not visible.
- Rep can be reported (by anyone who can see it). Reported rep no longer appears unless it is subsequently confirmed as valid by a mod. In this case, when it reappears, it no longer has a report button.
This update has two goals:
- To encourage people to use the rep system more. If you see a good post with no green box on it, that means it is up to you to rep it!
- To encourage people to report invalid rep. If you see a post with rep that doesn't deserve that rep, that means it is up to you to report it!
