What is reputation?

What is reputation?

Each writeup (user-posted node) has a numeric reputation, which is a (very unreliable) indicator of the PerlMonks community's collective estimation of the writeup. A writeup's reputation is simply the sum of the up-votes and down-votes which that node has received. So, for example, if 5 monks voted ++ on a node and 3 other monks voted -- on it, then that node's reputation would be 2.

Please remember that only nodes have a quantitative reputation; users do not. Each registered monk has experience points, a distinct quantity which is determined, only in part, from the up-votes and down-votes which his/her writeups have received. Read Voting/Experience System for the gory details.

(Of course, everyone has real reputation and real experience, but PerlMonks makes no attempt to quantify these. :-)

[1nickt]: choroba Understood. I'm wondering about the logic in a cpanfile. If the perl doesn't support threads, it's easy: require MCE. If the perl does support threads, as you say the user has a choice, so require both? Or, assume that irrespective of the choide
[1nickt]: ... choice, the threaded-perl user *probably* wants to use threads, therefore only require threads and leave MCE out, allowing the user to manually install if desired?
[choroba]: just require any of MCE and threads. Not sure if that's possible in the cpanfile, but should be possible early in the Makefile
[1nickt]: The app expects threads as default anyway, right?
[choroba]: that's true
[1nickt]: expects threads *to be* the default
[1nickt]: I think cpanfile can handle the logic. testing now.
