I'd rather we didn't see the reps on *everybody's* nodes -- I'm afraid that would make novices too timid about posting. I do think that all registered users should see the reps of Anonymous Monk posts. That would make Anonymous Monk a responsive way for people to float ideas, as well as providing a little motivation to use it responsibly. Shy monks could use it to get their feet wet, and it would make the voting system less mysterious to beginners.

On the other hand, people might post things anonymously just so everyone could see how cool they are... then try to take credit later via posts and chatterbox... and beginners whose anonymous posts get slammed might be frightened away.

So there are two sides to it. Isn't life tough?

Happy programming,

Speaking of votes, I just became a novice but I don't see any ++ and -- buttons.... Is there something I need to change in my user settings?
