Possible to know which member gave a 'Helpful Vote'?

Is there a way to know which member of trip-advisor gave a helpful vote?

I agree it would be a nice idea and it has been suggested in the past on the HUMTAB Forum

See link below if you want to raise it again

>>> I agree it would be a nice idea

Why? I honestly can't see why it would really matter... What are your ideas behind this, if you don't mind me asking?

I would not want to have more info rubbish than I already do. Can't wait for the "photo-thumbs-up" alert to be killed!

Personally, I would like t know the type of person that finds my reviews helpful. I do get a lot of PM's about them as well and it sometimes good to strike up some dialogue and share ideas

I also likes the compliment functionality that TA used to have

I think we sometimes forget that we all use TA in different ways and what appeals to one person may not appeal to another - it doesn't mean that it is a bad idea

No one said it was. Why make things up?

Internet is meant for exchange of ideas, and you can't expect everyone to appreciate what you like and would like to see done ;)

Second this.

It was simply a comment

I don't care if I get any helpful votes and who voted.
