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

I like the idea that a certain percentage of users are allocated to each level. That way, those that continue to enrich the site, will gradually rise, whilst those that have left will slowly decay in their level. Rather than a strict bell curve, I think a partly exponential drop off would work better:

% Ranking Level
0-2 Initiate
2-7 Novice
7-15 Acolyte
15-25 Scribe
26-39 Monk
39-71 Friar
71-87 Abbot
87-95 Bishop
95-98 Pontiff
98-100 Saint

It would also be a good idea to ignore all accounts not accessed in the last year, and those that have never posted when working out these levels.

Thoughts?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
