in thread A Proposal for Additional Levels

First off I doubt God would work as a last level because it would be confused with gods. Second it shouldn't matter how many post it takes to get to a level, as long as you earn the xp required. I like to answer questions alot causing me to have about an average of +3-7, which would make me a Pilgrim though I have enough xp for a Friar and almost a Hermit (at the time of this writting based on your chart), if my average node rep determined my level I'd proably stop answer SOPW questions, if there are others who would do the same this could ruin the best part (or at least most used part) of PerlMonks. While some people might be able to write a couple of xp getting Meditations, I only have time for that during the summer (when school + work don't take up all my time) and I'm not the best at thinking up good meditations either ;).

    I really don't think that "God" as a level will be a problem. I doubt anyone will ever be able to get 2,000,000 XP in a lifetime. Also note that the $NORM column says the *number* of posts that exceed $NORM - it doesn't say anything about an average. So, for Hermit, you'd need at least 15 posts with a node XP that's higher than $NORM. That's 15 posts of all the posts you've ever made.

      Ahh...$NORM, as I've seen it, is the average amount of exp nodes earn so that confused me. 2,000,000xp is reachable, at least for vroom who's already half-way there ;). I see limiting level by nodes written even worse though as that would make strong silent types seem like they're at a much lower level then there xp suggests (xp however earned is always deserved, IMHO).

    If your worried about people confusing level God with gods, how about changing level 32 to Deity. Means about the same thing :-)
