in thread Thoughts on voting and reputations

Ah, I see what's meant now. It may be valid to show reputation and still allow voting for older nodes. After all, if you've spent the time to trawl through the archives looking for an answer to a problem, and you find exactly what you are looking for, you are likely to vote it up whether or not it had a high reputation to begin with. Voting a node up is also a way of commenting on it.

Hrm, one of the disadvantages of the current voting system is that nodes posted very recently to front-page items tend to get voted up a lot more than (possibly better) nodes posted later on. I tend to go back to discussions I voted on previously to check if any new nodes have better answers, and I often note that an average, but early, answer gets +20 or something, and a later, but better, answer tends to only get around +6 (in fact, +6 seems remarkably common...). It may be an idea to allow higher-level monks to vote older nodes +2 if they turn out to be particularily good.

[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: I just found out that in $current_top_prior ity_project , the part I am in is not even in the top three worries. That's somewhat bad, not because I'm happy with being a top worry but because that means that I don't even know how bad the rest ...
[Corion]: ... of the situation is :-)
[marto]: it's good to know that things can always get worse :P
