On a much smaller level, this already happens. I may make an interesting post, but it doesn't mean that I am a Acolyte...I may (in reality) just be an Initiate.

I, however, can definetley see your point and am also concerned (not losing any sleep yet). Perhaps we could make XP points grow in proportion to time...or maybe we could have the XP points of a classic post in a ratio to the currently (I am speaking as if it is the future already) highest ranking post.
Excuse me if I am not making sense, I haven't slept for a long time.
