Voting / XP

Here is some information on the voting / experience system; in particular, it lists how you gain / lose XP. If you're interested in learning what powers come with each level, go here and search no more; you may also be interested in seeing the change in $NORM over the course of the past 30 days. However, when dealing with XP, beware and keep in mind the following, lest you will surely be doomed:

The administration does not take the voting and experience point system all that seriously.

Woe to those who do.

[stevieb]: I am thankful that I fell into Perl years ago in the manner I did. I don't believe there is another language that people care about so much, that they're willing to give everything. Langs come and go, but in Perl, it seems, things remain consistent.
[stevieb]: The people back then (~2000) are the same people now, but with much more experience. I'm appreciative that I fell into the Perl rabbit hole.
[stevieb]: Coding circles around Python devs, showing how unit tests should be done, enabling easy access to everything, learning basic C to wrap for direct hardware access... I am thankful.
[stevieb]: I'm in an appreciative mood. Thank you fellow Monks, for all I know, and for the knowledge which I can pass on
