Visibility of a Node's Reputation

Hm didn't see a faq on this, and thought I'd mention it.

Once you vote on a node, you can then see its reputation, in place of the ++ and -- Radio buttons, which are now gone..

After using up all my daily votes, however, the Node Reps are gone from each node I've voted on previously..

However, I can see my upvotes and a node's total rep in Recently Active Threads.

I only mention this since sometimes it's interesting to see the total rep of stuff making it to the top of Daily Best, but when I open the node the Rep is gone! (if I previously upvoted it). I wonder if this is by design, or if I just need a couple weeks off.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    With 40 votes a day, I don't usually run out, but I believe that when I do, the node reputation is visible on nodes that I've voted for. And I would bet that logic is the same logic that is under the covers of the RAT page.

    That's odd. It should certainly continue to show you the rep of a node, after you run out of votes. It does stop showing you the voting buttons though, maybe you are looking at nodes that you haven't voted on, and getting confused?

    What do you then see? Could you link to a screenshot?


      Screenshot is a good idea.. don't think I've gotten confused, though, as I noticed it a couple days in a row and then went through yesterday to the nodes I know I voted on..

      Let me do a screenshot when (and if) I run out of votes today.

      Also: I was using some on-site CSS, and have removed it temporarily, so will test with both CSS and no CSS, on the of-chance that had something to do with it

    I've never seen that happen. Are you sure it does?

      I just gave you my last ++ for the day, and I can indeed still see the rep of your node.

    I haven't seen this happen, either. Wondering if you are mistaken about which nodes that you have ++'ed. If you overrun your vote count and ++'ed more than you have votes for, the ones that you actually don't have a vote count for won't show a reputation (because you haven't actually voted for them!). Things to chew on....

      Apologies -- I was not able to reproduce the situation I initially described, after a couple tries now, so what you say here is very likely what had happened, as I have overrun my vote count a lot of the time, I've noticed, this makes sense. And glad too, as that might have meant a bug, and me reading from the bottom of the East River!!
