Since Reputation seems to be here to stay I have some suggestions on how to improve it. In a post you can click on the Reputation number to see who has voted for it. It would be very nice if this feature could be implemented for a user, that is, if I were to click the green Reputation box in my profile it would produce a pop-up with the names of everyone that has up- (or down-) voted me with numbers for how often. Similarly for others' profiles.

Also within the profile is the option of viewing the last few messages and threads that someone has posted in. However, it would also be nice to be able to see recent posts for a given user that have been upvoted. If nothing else this might help improve post quality as users can see quickly which types of posts receive a positive response and which not.

Finally, in the Members section it is possible to search by User Rating but not by Reputation. It would be nice if the users for a search could be ordered by Reputation, or that one could search for users above/below a particular Reputation level, or both. This last is more a matter of making Reputation look like it is a part of the forum software rather than the belated add-on it really is.

I would find it much more useful to be able to see which forum(s) a user's upvotes are coming from. Water Cooler upvotes just aren't the same as A/E upvotes.

Your suggestion #2 is implemented in IP.Board 3.3, which is in beta test. When you view a user's profile, there will be a Like tab, with Given and Received buttons to select whether to view recent posts that they've given or received upvotes for.

I think looking at your Likes received would be a reasonable approximation for what mgoetze asks for.
