( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I guess I need to provide a rationale for this post. I had planned to originally, but discovered I really had many different things in mind all at once. Here are some thoughts, in no particular order:

I was kind of intrigued yet not entangled by the XP system and I read why did i get downvoted? which seemed to make a lot of sense, particularly as I was seeing little or no correspondence between my self-judgement of my posts and their reputation. I also ran across some (positive) comments about XP Whores which I thought of as an amusing concept. Then I discovered "XP Whore" feelings lurking in my own psyche. I hoped this simulation would fatally puncture them (but it has not come to pass).

I also was thinking about the different kinds of contribution to this kind of community, whether poster, maintainer, reader and wanted to highlight the reward for the contribution of just being there day by day and sharing opinions, if only via those little ++ and --'s.

I also found the description of the XP system to be just a little vague and wanted to formalize my interpretation of it and see if I got corrections. (E.g. what is 1/6th of 16, or of 5, anyway?)

And I wanted to provoke some smiles. BTW, it seems to take between 450 and 500 days to go from initiate to saint.

And last of all, I was hoping for some votes so I could advance a level really soon now. :)
