Nothing against the Perl Gurus, but I thought the idea of XP was to encourage activity on this site. XP is a measure of how responsive and knowledgable you've been on this site, not in the Perl community in general.

XP are reasonably fair so long as they're based on what you do here. Otherwise it's a popularity contest, like elementary-school student body presidential campaigns.

I'd find it pretty demoralizing to start handing out honorary XP, because it would make it meaningless. If you wanted to create another statistic, perhaps something D&Doid like "Fame" or "Virtue", and list that in the Saints List, it might work. Gurusamy Sarathi should have mega-fame, but (as far as I know) he doesn't post here too much.

[marto]: Corion yes I saw them Pandemonium_Tour
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, and I doubt that they'll ever get back to something like Violator/Songs of Faith and Devotion - it would either alienate their "regular" crowd, or be "too much Violator" ;)
LanX needs to see Freddy Mercury'
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I have that on DVD even, and I missed them last year because I was in London at the time ironically ;)
[marto]: put me in the mood to listen to this now :)
[Corion]: LanX: Well, grab a shovel :)
[Corion]: Kraftwerk also are still touring (well, only Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider), but I'm too tight fisted to spend EUR 150+ for standing around two hours ;)
[Corion]: Oh. Queen have a new front man. Not really sure...
[marto]: Florian retired some years ago. I have been gifted a ticket to their show in Glasgow as my friends husband can no longer make it
[Corion]: marto: Ah, so it's only one original remaining, and his clones ;)
