Impact of Comment Score Visibility on Helpfulness to Peers

Are people more or less helpful when their comments are publicly visible? In the the context of I find that transitioning from a public regime to a private one makes low ranked members more helpful but high ranked ones less so. However, I find unhelpful feedback decreases independent of rank.

Impact of Reputation and Network Affiliation on Social Evaluation

If two individuals submit the exact same work, in theory, an audience should evaluate that work equally. However, inequality in judgments may exist for many reasons. In this paper, I examine how the reputation of individuals and their network strategies impact evaluation by peers. I find that reputation of a "producer" matters independent of "product" quality. I also find that individuals who interact with a few people repeatedly rather than many different people shallowly, receive higher evaluations.
