Now I know this may cause some to think that this may lead to bias and others may start arguing that it's already a click away, however, I was wondering what everyone's thoughts may be concerning color-coding a person's nick to correspond with their level when posting to any of our sections, including the chatterbox*. I am aware that many people consider experience to be somewhat pointless. But experience does indicate one thing, how long said person has been hanging around the monastery. Most of the monks I've seen who are ranked fairly high are for the most part very knowledgeable about Perl and willing to help. Of course, I'd suggest keeping this setting off by default so bias won't begin from the very beginning of a potential monk's career here and just allow said monk to enable the color coding through his or her user settings.
Of course, it could be made available through CSS or something of the sort. Since most of the names show up within blocks, just set the classname to his or her level.
This is just a thought and was wondering how others felt regarding such a suggestion. Thanks for your consideration.
