Other Experience/Reputation Ideas...

chromatic suggested that notes be ordered by reputation. What does everyone think about that. I've implemented that for responses in the Categorized Questions and Answers section. The answers with the highest reputation will show up at the top of the list. Right now Anonymous Monk's writeups can't be voted on so those writeups will always have a reputation of 0. Do people like the idea of ordering notes that way as well. If people reply to the note or node they are actually replying to notes should still be threaded correctly and the responses should make sense. The only problem is that you no longer can tell which order nodes were added easily. I suppose we could make note ordering configureable, I mean that's what the Everything Engine is all about but I'd like to hear all of your thoughts.

    Well, I do like the idea.
    "If people reply to the note or node they are actually replying to" : this doesn't often happen though.
    It could be a good way of encouraging this practice, however.
    I vote we try it, and if no-one likes it then it gets changed back.

    I think it is a good idea, but it could be confusing since the nature of the comments are threaded. So if you refer to the node above, then it gets reordered by reputation, then the comments might get confusing and the context of the response might get lost. Also do sub threads get bumped up simply because they respond to a highly reputable thread?

    Giving the user the option of sorting by reputation or time would be very cool though.

    I like seeing the order in which they were added. Often people comment or indirectly refer to previous comments.

    I personally would like to see a "Sort By" column ala c|net downloads.
