As I said earlier in this discussion I have develop some kind of addiction which has led me to write a script that retrieves my XP and cumulative reputation of my write ups. This script now runs hourly to record my history in the Monastery. It uses my name and password, otherwise it cannot see the reputation of my write ups.
Whether or not this is proper monkish behavior (probably not), I am wondering whether this will actually get me extra XP over time. Right now I log on anyway every day, so I guess not. But if I stay away for a few days, will my script create undeserved XP? In which case I should shut it down while being away?
