When viewing a question, I was wondering if it would be possible on the nameplates of the members who asked the question and the members who provided answers and comments, that their nameplates only display the reputation points earned in relation to the tags which are attached to that question?
I'm not sure if I'm explaining this the way I intend to but what I would like is for the reputation points you see on a member's nameplate to only reflect the reputation earned for the tags on that question and off course still see the total rep in smaller font at the bottom of the nameplate.
This should be dynamic, and be derived on the fly, depending on the tags.
I would find this good as it would not give a false impression of someone. Say for example someone with 20k rep (all earned from c# questions/answers) is asking his first jQuery question. Seeing 20k rep on the nameplate could be miss-interpreted and influence how people may treat that question. Will there still be down-votes if it is a bad question? Maybe..but maybe not.
Same goes for answering off course. If I'm answering my first question under the Java tag and I never done that before, my rep should probably be 1 in relation to the tags on that post, still showing my full rep as well off course.
By no means has that any additional effect on privileges and the like as the total rep is still used for that off course.
We already have the number of answer or questions associated to tags on the profile page I was just wondering if something similar could be done to the reputation displayed on the name-plates (not on profile pages).
I don't know if I explained this right but if not let me know and I try to clarify.
