in reply to Higher level posts

I think it is a great idea to require that users publish some sort of FAQ, Tutorial, etc. before being granted higher levels. I'd like to see a system where you have to contribute in this manner to get past level Monk, and to have to make increasing contributions at each level.

Right now, XP is primarily awarded for voting.

Not to say that I don't like to climb the list, but I really do think that I am climbing it faster than is deserved. Most of my XP is because I use all my votes, every day. Not hard to do, I'm highly opinionated. But, does that really make me a better Perl Monk? If it causes me to post more, than perhaps. But is voting really the largest contibution a person can make here? Sure it's important but, but is it the most important?

If I had been required to write a tutorial to get past "Monk", I guarantee you there would be one more tutorial than there is now. Should I do it anyway? Yes. Is it on my list of things to do? Yes. Do I get around to it? Not yet.
