Expressing levels of achievement/reputation (eBay stars)

We all know eBay stars - different stars denote accumulated reputation
or "feedback score".

I like Ebay's colored star icon system because it's more elegant
and more subtle than, say, a "five star" hotel/restaurant system.
It's more like a karate belt color ladder.

But can levels be expressed in yet subtler ways? What other graphic
elements can be used?

So you're saying there's nothing to be learned from the experiences of other people? Then why even have a "discussion board"?

Seems a bit self-contradictory :-)

Folksonomy v/s Taxonomy

In my case, I need to categorize user created lists of places/
organizations. I can either have user defined categories or use tags.

My obvious concern with tags is that the use of synonyms can potentially
fracture the usefulness of the data and creation of meta-noise. For Eg.
if the users are creating a list of high-schools- they could be
potentially tagged as schools, school, educational institution etc. But
it does work well in Flickr/delicious etc.

So..when do I use one over the other?

1st reminder: CALL FOR PAPER: aaate 2009 conference

Hello there,

I already posted this last month, but there could probably be someone new in the Forum who could be interested, so I'm re-posting this call for paper.

I also take the chance to launch a proposal: It'd be cool to meet if some of you is working in Italy. Just come up in some way and we'll try to arrange something.

Messaging when user does not have permission to edit some data

I'm working on an app where users have fine-grained permissions to edit
specific bits of data on a page (edit buttons appear next to each set of
data). The problem is, when users don't have the permission to edit the
data, then they think it's not editable - period. They don't realize someone
else in their organization might have permission to change it. Instead, they
call the app host's customer service.

What's a friendly, non-obtrusive way to let them know that even though they
cannot edit the data, someone else might be able to?

There are some sensitivities around this.
