in reply to Considering Super Search: the Sequel

All good ideas I think, but I think it should be minrep OR maxrep, as giving the searcher the ability to specify both would make it pretty easy to uncover the actual reputation which is currently hidden unless you spend that hard earned vote to find out...

Here's an OT thought: how about being able to spend a vote neutrally in order to uncover the reputation without affecting it? Now I'm confusing myself - if indeed reputation should be hidden, why is it revealed to voters?

I'd like to be able to assign to an luser

    Regarding your last question, I think that people like to know how many people agree with them. E.g. if I upvote something, then I usually want to know if my vote made a difference. However, I also find that if I'm the one of the first to vote on something that I find really interesting, then I am sometimes disappointed to find that node only has 2 or 3 rep when I think it deserves much more.

    Not sure where any of this is leading. I'll stop rambling. But please don't "reap" me!!!
