I used to be a saint
Actually, I think it is a fantastic idea and an opportunity for me.
As far as I am concerned the real reason for the voting and experience system is as an encouragement to participation.
I realized that once I maxed out to Saint, for better or for worse my participation dropped off...admitedly this was due in-part to demands in real life but I think that giving folks something more to work toward than attaining level vroom is a great idea as it will continue to provide encouragement.
