xp means little, or nothing. i have pretty high xp, but i still make mistakes. i can point you to at least two dozen of my posts with inaccurate information (perhaps one day i'll clean them up.) i've seen some nodes considered by their authors because they posted inaccurate information, and didn't want down-votes. i think that's bad form. if you make a mistake, get an honest assessment, including any down-votes that come along with it. some monks, (merlyn for one) sometimes come across as harsh, and their nodes are downvoted. i don't see them considering a node to prevent the loss of xp. they realize it's not about xp.

i don't think the experience system would benefit from (this) change. perhaps a better solution is simply to put a small disclaimer under the monestary gates, it's not about the xp, or forget the xp, remember the experience. or better still: we can simply make those phrases part of our meditations on becoming better monks.

here are some posts to help you meditate:

On Monkness (mine, anyway)
Stubborn as a Saint
Beginnings of the Voting Experience System
The true PerlMonks Experience

there are many more like this. seek and ye shall find.
