Make people accountable for giving rep Watch

    Hey, I just thought I'd bring up an issue with rep and hear what people think.

    I believe people should be able to see who reps them, so that we can have some accountability. The rep system is slightly flawed, as I reckon I get about a 10:1 ratio positive rep to negative rep, yet it is still in the negative.

    There are a few people here abusing their status on TSR and negative repping to make others look bad.

    For example, I made this post, no.8 on this page http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...706&highlight=
    which got neg repped by someone with high reputation level, despite the fact I genuinely took about 20 minutes to write this, to help out a fellow TSRer and got negged for it, which I know I shouldnt care about, but really does make me think twice about helping people on here and being nice.

    So my solution is, is there any way to make sure neg reppers can be made visible to the poster, or at least some form of feedback as to why? Because sometimes its beyond me...

    Once upon a time you could see who rep'd you, and you could leave comments alongside your rep.

    This turned into a hugely abusable and unfriendly system.

    So it was removed, and reworked so that only subscribing members could see who gave reputation, but the comment section was not reinstated.

    If you thumbs me up now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

    Ages ago before they changed it, it showed the person who negged or gave rep where the rep is now but for some reason they changed it to the way it is now

    Negged for not checking to see that someone had made a similar post before.
