in thread time for new highs?

"++ votes on top level 'seekers' posts should have a slighly higher probability of garnering XP..."

I follow your logic and good intent, danger, but that looks like it would *compound* the issue raised by jptxs at the root of this thread.

Indeed, I have been somewhat embarrassed at advancing beyond Monk(5), knowing that my Perl ability will likely never be more than "understands and applies the fundamentals".   But I make a point of not hiding that fact, and do what I can to contribute to vroom's fine Monastery.   Mostly that means trying to formulate good questions, voting to encourage positive posts, and enjoying the site's comraderie.

So...   if PM's levels were to be extended or restructured, I'll still be able to do those same things, whether it's as "Pontiff ybiC the router guy" or as "Zapped back to Scribe where he belongs ybiC".   8^D

    I mention that as a risk, but meant that by actually giving higher recognition to questions (and making that publically known, say, in the Voting/Experience System), it might help people realize that XP isn't just about Perl, but overall contribution (as Ovid said), and thus not feel as if they haven't earned their XP nor to be embarassed to continue to ask questions when they do have high XP. Just an idea.
