    Have you ever wondered what members were getting reputation for?

    Well now you can!

    Whenever you click on a members profile, the latest reputation they have received is now visible.

    For an example, click below:

    http://www.catfish1.com/forums/member.php?u=1853

    This was added based on member request, in the event it is, "To Much", it will be removed.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    The biggest issue I see here is members may have posted comments they do not wish to be made public. If this is the case, Private Mail me, post here, e-mail, etc, and this new feature will be removed.

    Currently, the reputation display is limited to the last one received, to reduce any damage until a green light is given by the membership.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    personally i dont like this feature.
    i feel rep comments are akin to private messages which should be private
    if a person is giveing someone a reputation comment i feel it was for that person and not the board. JMO

    This is why it was left to display only the last one, I know I have left some, that if made public, would cause a controversy with the content.

    Point Taken.

    I pretty much agree with Darryl on what he said.I think it might lead to alot of blank spaces on comments or not giving rep. JMHO

    Gents,

    Point taken, project flushed.

    But, the effort was made for those that requested.

    Thanks,

    I seen this as more of a Privacy issue, than anything else. I didn't want to over-react. Any communication that is made under the suspicion of privacy, is done so with the expectation it wont be broad-casted.

    Sorry to those that pushed hard to get this.

    It's good to know that our opinions are considered when making changes to the board.

    I have to agree with Crispy's thoughts on this. It could lead to no comments or no reps. Why is it so important to make it public?


    Try to have as good a life as you can under the circumstances.

    It is refreshing to be a member of a web forum that solicits opinions and listens to them, rather than asking for comments and then doing whatever they want regardless.

    Thanks, Paul, you're the man.

    Oh yeah, I agree with these guys, I think rep points should be private.
