RE: Keep the vote XPs. Don't increase vote #.
in thread Scalability of the voting system
I know what you're saying, but I don't beleive it works like that. Right now I'm at monk status too, and at the rate I'm going I'd probably hit friar in less than 20 days just by logging in every day and voting out at random. It seems that when you hit this status you don't really need to post at all to get XPs!
It gets even worse if you consider that a non-posting monk will increase his signal/noise ratio without any contribution whatsoever! Therefor I see increasing the number of votes as a bad idea.
Wow, my own post barely makes sense to me...
