in thread Googlish approach to voting/XP?

We could just rename XP to Lastitude. As in that dude has lots of lastitude....he's been around forever! :-)

I have to agree with getting rid of XP. Although its a nice way to judge someones probability of being right, its not realy a measure. As a fairly new monk myself, its kinda a barier to entry, as i'd like to participate in the design of the site but am not allowed until a higher level. Then agian maybe barriers to entry are needed, i'm not sure though :-)

    You misunderstand. XP does not, in any means, give any clue whether the poster is saying something sensible or not. There is no correlation between having a high XP and having Perl knowledge. XP is not a nice way to judge someone.

      I said judge someones probability of being right because as new monks come thats the only thing available to them as that kind of indicator. After a short time you learn that it is a bad idea to judge anything at all by XP, but by calling it Experience it gives the feeling that people with high experience will be right.

      Abigail-II, what's your opinion on reputation? Does it measure something?

      Thank you, Valerio

        I think it's been clearly stated in the previous 2 posts that Abigail-II doesn't think it measures anything meaningful.
