( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

This all sounds great. I have two minor contributions to add: First, I would really like to see the contention on a node. So once ive voted on a node Id like to see its rep and the number of votes cast. Second, I believe that if the last_node variable was used so that you plain and simply couldnt vote on nodes you reached from best nodes. If you stumble on the same node from somewhere else then fine, but I dont think Best Nodes should be votable on. (There are probably a host of ways to do this beside the last_node variable.)

Anyway, I think reviewing the XP system at this time is a good idea. Ideas that work when the user population is small may not work when they are as large as they are now. Especially given the 200 odd saints with a total vote power of around 8000 votes everyday XP and rep inflation is going to be more and more of a problem.

And I vote for downvotes having 0 change of XP gain. If you want to be nasty then do it to make a point, not to get XP.
