For any new user like this one, you can now see in his profile page links to the FAQ for explaining terms like answers, bounties, tag and... "votes": the latter with the following link supposed to get to /faq#reputation.

vote link

That seems good, except the FAQ page has no id=reputation section.
It has an id="link-reputation" though, so this link should be more appropriate for the "vote" reference.

  • Yep this is intentional (and necessary, to prevent jitters), just part of how the FAQ highlighting works...Mark already has it explained so I 'll refrain from duplicating it. – Nick Craver Feb 13 '12 at 11:37
  • @NickCraver Excellent. I had never seen that feature before. – VonC Feb 13 '12 at 11:49

While it's true there's no element with the reputation id, /faq#reputation does link to the correct place.

If you deep-link to an anchor like #reputation in the FAQ, it highlights that section at the top so the page doesn't scroll, something you don't get with #link-reputation:

Reputation section

  • The beginning of the page and its section "What is reputation?" seem to be quite redundant actually... – VonC Feb 13 '12 at 10:26
  • @VonC I think you might be a bit confused about how anchors work on the FAQ: if you deep-link to an anchor like #reputation in the FAQ, it highlights that section at the top so the page doesn't scroll. Compare #deletion to #link-deletion: the former is what you should be linking to. – user149432 Feb 13 '12 at 10:32
  • confused? I completely missed that fancy feature (that I never seen elsewhere on the web!). if you mention it a bit more clearly in your answer, I will accept it and will propose to close my question with a "by-design" status. – VonC Feb 13 '12 at 11:24
  • @VonC Revised :) – user149432 Feb 13 '12 at 18:08
