in thread -ve XP, node reputation, voting and learning
TBH, the only reason that particular node caught my eye was that it was the only one I could remember being downvoted, let alone having a negative rep. Of course, by starting this node I've managed to fix that :)
As for trying to avoid negative reps, I can't say I'd change my posting style to do so - I try and make my posts something positive and try and help out. Sometimes I wonder if I should post a response to a particular node since I'm fairly new around PM and definitely learning, but then I decided that I could either sit in the background or try and comment/help where I can.
