... is now on. The Admins and Mods have talked about it for awhile. Here's the essential justification for it being on: Say that you just casually browse here. How do you know if someone's advice is any good? Well, you could browse all of that person's posts, but that takes time. Why not just look at his Reputation meter? If it's high, chances are the poster is a respected member of the community. If it's low, he's either new (i.e., an unknown quantity) or doesn't give good advice. Now, I've also mentioned that the WF is currently small enough that I could go through the user list and just set people's titles to things like, "Hoopy Frood" or something like that because I know the experience of some of the folks and the quality of their advice, but this will be more difficult to do as we get more members. In any event, we're just testing. I'm going to put up a poll so y'all can tell us whether you like it or not. And I'm brave enough to currently show my reputation level .
