Yes, this is a good point.

Maybe that the current rating system should be a little reviewed. It does not mean that a newbye does not deserve getting points by asking questions, but I would simply add some "requirements" that would unify a little more the actual knowledge of the monks at each level. Just to point it out, a few days ago, a newbye was wondering how he could get Monk by simply voting and asking questions.

My propositions is to require postings that are not questions to go from a level to the upper level, and require also a number of reputation points that would increase along with the level.

Example:
  • to go from initiate to novice, require to have a post with +2 for reputation
  • to go to acolyte, two posts with +5 for reputations
  • etc.
  • and to get to the Saint status, having at least a post in each category with +50 or more for reputation (hey, not everybody could be a saint like that! :-)

    Otherwise, I am pleased with the current grading/XP system. I like the fact that you get XP just by logging on the site several times a day, because it proves that you are an "active monk".

      I don't agree with the idea of requiring posts with a certain rep to advance to the next level. We all know that there are problems with voting (people who vote randomly or against people they just don't like).
