Knowing Your Role: the Effect of Reputation Signals on Participation Intentions

Reputation signals high in role clarity generate greater participation intentions than low role clarity signals, mediated by feelings of connectedness (Study 1a/b). New users are particularly motivated by high role clarity signals (Study 2). Low community endurance attenuates the effect (Study 3) and face-to-face interaction mitigates the effect (Study 4).
