in reply to Categorized Votes

First off, I agree with the other experienced monks regarding categorized voting. However, I also sympathize with Ivory and the newbies in their quest for the GOOD information.

One thing I think would help newbies out is if, until you earn your first few votes, you were able to see the reps of all the nodes and replies. As I understand it, the purpose of not showing the reps of the nodes is to not skew somebody's voting habits. But if they haven't earned any votes yet, that precaution hardly seems necessary.

*Woof*

    Hmmm. I wonder if people who are NOT yet allowed to vote, but ARE logged in, should be allowed to see the rep on articles. This lets the newbies get a feel, and keeps people from coming in as an AM to check article reps before voting.

      <devil's advocate>Not really: it would be trivial to create a second user and do the same thing. I can't imagine anyone so insecure in their voting practices to need to see reputations before voting, though, so I doubt it would cause any real problems. I would just like some way to see reputations of nodes I didn't want to vote on.</devil's advocate>
