in thread XP for Consideration

That could be. My impression on the subject is probably a few years out of date. Regardless, it does not change much. OP deletes the OP and we consider it for editing to have it restored -- not likely to happen, etc. So, Considering is most useful for dealing with spam. So I don't hit Nodes to Consider that much anymore. And getting back to the OP's suggestion, what are we offering incentives for? Spam will be quickly considered anyway and anything else may or may not be acted upon. From that viewpoint, it looks like a system ripe for abuse.

    Actually consideration for restoring content is one of the things most likely to be acted on quickly, where the original content is available anyway.

    I don't see offering XP as an incentive to consider nodes as being good at all. There may be a small virtue in XP as an incentive to vote on considerations, but I suspect that's unlikely to happen and if implement it would be as an incentive to get new monks involved rather than try to re-educate experienced monks.

    And yes, it could be abused by XP gamers so on balance personally I'd leave well enough alone.

    True laziness is hard work

      I always assumed it was begin stored int he database? Not true? That would explain a lot.

      I should clarify -- I was really thinking of Nodes to Consider as voting on Consideration. I do not check on Nodes to Consider anymore, but I do still vote on nodes being Considered in threads I am reading. And if a node deserves to be Considered then I will act upon that as well -- just very few I catch before someone else does. Anyway, I did not do a good job drawing a distinction between Nodes to Consider and Consideration in general and I wanted to apologize for any confusion or ruffled feathers that may have caused.

      As for XP, I think Consideration and voting should be altruistic actions.
