in thread Proposed XP System Changes

Also, a lot people come into the converstation late (like me). Most of the readers may have moved on by that point, and thus the chance of being voted one way or another is decreased.

On the other hand, this would prevent 'idle converstation' posts from giving the poster XP.

hmmm...would it be possible to have an option for the poster to say whether or not this post should be considered for XP? An honor system way of seperating 'idle converstation' from posts that are supposed to be true contributions?

    Random thoughts:

    This "most of the readers have moved on" problem is probably because they use the individual sections rather than the newest nodes page (just an observation).

    Perhaps if we pointed out to new people how useful it is and more people used it, the inital posts wouldn't get such a boost from being early.

    I know that if I had to trawl through converstaions I'd already read looking for new bits, I would miss an awful lot of good stuff.
