in reply to Sudden Impressions on the Experience System

I have to chime in to complicate things a little bit. I do that a lot at work too.

Please, don't forget that real experience will grow also with reading. Reading is an important part of the learning curve. Reading is important after having posted a question. And "lurking" can learn you a lot.

I think the idea behind getting points from voting is that one should read, hopefully understand, potentially agree and absolutely appreciate a post before voting ++. By reading many questions and answers one can learn a lot. (Personally, I just love FAQ pages. I learn so much from most of them.)

Writing is good, but reading is very important too to growing ones experience. I believe many Monks gain more in XP level from voting (after reading?) than from writing their own nodes. (It's possible that I could be proven wrong. BTW, it wouldn't be the first time. ;-)

To make it more real, how could we measure that a Monk has really read the node s/he is voting on? No, i don't think it's possible, so much of the XP system will rely on each Monks own consciousness.


Everything went worng, just as foreseen.
