    You could always give him positive rep to "counter" the neg you feel bad about giving him. Of course, you have to serve your sentence of giving rep to 14 other people to do that. Just an idea.

    I think the only people that would compain about it, would be people that have given negs for no reason. I deserved the 1 neg that I got, so it won't make me so upset at the person. It's just an internet forum. Surely, most adults will feel the same way.

    I don't think you'd even have to do that -- the HTML table showing our reputations received are already displaying the date/time of that record. So it should be as simple as a conditional date test within the code when building the HTML table, and include/exclude the giver's username based on that.

    Perhaps. Changing the query is always my method because building a page takes longer than the actual query.

    As I understand the issue, they have to change the code anyway to add the "giver" column and this would be easy to slip in as part of that. Much easier to implement for a non-SQL expert than trying to change a query. I agree with your general principle on database server versus PHP script execution efficiency, though.

    Re: Information on turning off the anonymity of the reputation system

    The "switch" has been flipped and from this point forward, all reputation comments, positive or negative, will have the commenter's user name attached to it. That means you don't have to sign your name in the comment field, as this information is already included. Please do NOT carry over any disputes about negative reputation into the forums; if you must, handle that privately.

    Let the chaos ensue.

    I wonder how many people are viewing User CP right now?
