in thread -ve XP, node reputation, voting and learning
Why don't we just get rid of this entire XP thingy?
Because it offers value through moderation and feedback. You seem very good with perl. I, on the other hand, haven't much experience (as opposed to XP) but am trying to join in and maybe offer what little I can. How am I going to know if their post is not worthwhile? Through votes. How am I going to know why I was wrong? Through replies.
Besides that I agree with you. In this post I am not saying that everyone needs offer feedback. I agree that to many of these explanations will lead to clutter. The other worry is that it may erode the anonymity enshrouds the voting process.
In spite of everything, I think everyone (esp myself) should remember involvement in this site is voluntary.
