Having a voting/experience system will be a good thing...I think
the structure vroom
's got now is going to be fairly okay at
keeping down XP-whores and encouraging valuable community
participation. But I also think that the real value of the
site is that if a person asks a (well-framed) question, there
is at least one answer posted even before the question gets to
the gates. It's a faster and better way of getting
information than newsgroups and IRC, and way easier
on the ego than asking Tom Christiansen.
Which is why I support chromatic in the idea of extra
rewards for good answers. I don't care about particulars of
implementation, but I think it is important. Funny poll comments
just should not be worth as much as excellent answers.
