- Russ ++ for insightful explanation of reason, logic, and intent behind recent XP changes.
- ++ to <insert here names of all monks who helped develop XP changes> for their efforts and the anticipated benefits. Including vroom, our most esteemed Monk of Monks. Fwiw, it makes a lot of sense to me.
- I fully believe that all Monks involved had nothing but the very best intentions.
My concern is with having PM policy discussions take place outside Monastery walls. I'm not "bent outta shape" over this, don't get me wrong (grin). It's just that #perlmonks puts IRC(?) impaired Monks like myself at significant disadvantage for staying abreast of developments. Missing out-of-band PM-related discussions may have led me to some distinctly incorrect assumptions in heated discussions a month or two ago.
At the risk of repeating myself, the XP change results appear to benefit PM's meaningful community atmosphere, but the process appears to have detracted from same. What do fellow Monks think?
As always - my opinions, worth exactly what you paid for them...
