in reply to Possible changes to Voting/XP

I would just like to ask what timescales are set for the implementation of these new measures?

I visit perlmonks every day, I cast all my votes as I like to express my interest in what is written here, I post when I have problems and I am grateful for what help I receive. The majority of my XP probably comes from voting. I tend to upvote nodes on the front page as they make me think, I upvote interesting nodes in SoPW as they come through. I rarely downvote, unless I see something is blatently wrong and *I* can see it. I think my useage pattern is reasonably typical of a monk here.

Make the changes, but let us know when :) There doesn't seem to be much opposition ;) It would take an awful lot of changes to stop perlmonks from being a site I check every single day.

    Thanks for the insight/mini-profile. (:

    I don't ask volunteers for schedules as it rarely does any good and it tends to annoy the volunteers (and these are especially true when I am the volunteer).

    The work required to make these changes is fairly small so I hope we can get them implemented in the next month. Perhaps much sooner, perhaps things go poorly and it'll be later.

    I wasn't planning on announcing them this soon and I was expecting a lot more resistance to some of the proposed changes, so I hadn't started looking for a slot when I could make the code changes yet (and I'm finishing up some rather more important work at the moment, not counting trying to stay employed and keeping the dishes/clothes/children clean).
