in reply to The meaning of life, the universe and node reputation

I submit that node reputation is pretty much useless to anyone but the auhtor of a node.

This is why I liked the Node Tension idea so much -- at least for node authors to see

I'd be a lot more interested in the rep of my nodes if i knew how many votes had been cast.

"rep: 10" ... is that 10 good votes, or 60 bad votes and 10 sympathy votes? was my post well recieved or not? oh well... i guess I'll never know.

    Opportunity cost would be nice to know too. I'd like to know how many people read my post and then voted for somebody else. ;) Seriously, a post that gets 10 reads and 10 votes may be much better than a post with 1,000,000 reads and 100 votes. Knowing this could help solve Warnock's dilemma.

    That said, perlmonks works perfectly for the community. Conversations are on-topic. Flames and attacks are rare. Wrong answers are quickly corrected. Changes at this point will only help authors seeking meta-enlightenment.

    Yes, that is an interesting proposition. After some thinking, I do think others shouldn't be able to see any more than just the node rep as such - for a reason I can't quite put into words yet. But letting the author know the precise stats would provide them with even better feedback, which is all the concept is about.
