in thread Proposed XP System Changes
You may not be able to answer questions in time
(I know I never can) but I try to occasionally write an
informed post about something. (Occasionally.) I'm always
tired too. I try to pick my battles, so to speak, as they come up and as they seem important: help
out newbies in the chatterbox with site problems, or
write vroom about things I think are not working. I post
too sometimes. I don't much like receiving XP, it makes
me feel guilty. :)
Of course, I believe that if you want to earn XP, you
more than deserve it. Your posts are excellent, I've voted
up many of them! I didn't know you personally, but you've
got both explicit reputation (well-rated posts) and implicit (eg
I know that you make good posts, your nick is familiar that way).
This is a community of people, not of database entries.
When I think of reputation, I don't think of a number, I
think of a person who has posted good ideas or thoughtful
replies. I think what we are trying to get to is an XP
system that works more transparently, more in the
background, and still encourages the kinds of
posts and personal conduct that the community as a whole values.
