  • We should make votes from higher monks more weighty, and if a monk is above a certain level (monk, for instance), they should be able to see a post and the score of the post before voting to ensure that the post is not getting inflated uneccesarily.

I like this idea. There seems to be a tendency for some people to vote up a post simply because of the reputation of the author -- even if the post was rude, inflammatory or just plain incorrect. Some posts could receive negative votes for similar, non-quality-related reasons. Higher level monks are expected to contribute to the quality of the site and to help regulate the workings of Perl Monks. This would definitely help them fulfill a "balancing" role...

    Russ,

    I tend to disagree. Generally speaking, I think the higher level monks tend to make more correct statements more often than less experienced people.

    I think the general tendency is for people to vote ++ unless a node is really stupid or inflammatory. Voting ++ doesn't help as butt-kissing since you don't know who voted the node. And there's already a fairly good check in place since you don't know what the reputation is until after you've voted.

    In fact, I tend to think that allowing higher level monks to influence the score is a negative thing.

    Just my $0.02USD.
