it does not seem fair to give just one vote sometimes i want to give more then each monk could show just how much they like each node or how much they don't

    XP is nothing, why change the weight of votes like seasons in the year?

    and to paraphrase moxliukas:

    votes just indicate, a personal message is warm sun in winter.
    perl -MHTTP::Daemon -MHTTP::Response -MLWP::Simple -e ' ; # The $d = new HTTP::Daemon and fork and getprint $d->url and exit;#spider ($c = $d->accept())->get_request(); $c->send_response( new #in the HTTP::Response(200,$_,$_,qq(Just another Perl hacker\n))); ' # web
      May I suggest a change to your paraphrase?
      votes are monk shadows,
      a personal message is
      warm sun in winter.

      Corion, I never knew you were so poetic :)

      The first rule of Perl club is - use Perl
      ith rule of Perl club is - follow rule i - 1 for i > 1

        not only that, just how right he is!

    Have you e'er voted
    On a writ so atrocious
    It's left demoted?

    Sorry, it was the best Haiku I could come up with on short notice.

    In answer to the question, though, I believe having a multi-vote casting system would not be all that good. What if someone is out on a vendetta (sp)? While I am not an XP whore yet (looks like I'm headed that way), if someone were to throw all of their votes to kill someones write-ups, it wouldn't make it a very fun place, nor friendly for that matter. The XP doesn't matter all that much, but it does sort of add a little excitement. A multi-cast would throw too much caos, and those without the fortitude to withstand something like that, might not want to come back into the sandbox to play. Think of all the insights and general knowledge that would be lost because someone didn't think that it was worth it to come back. Not that XP makes it worth it, but it is a part of the overall experience.

    Bottom line: If it is a well hated or well loved write-up, enough people will vote on it and the author will get the idea, real fast. Leave the voting the way it is -- it works!


      ++ on your Haiku. It mixes poetry styles in that it also rhymes. Cool!

      (so many nodes and so little time ... )

    When one vote is not enough, you can always send a private message to the monk and tell them that you like his node or not. Unless he is Anonymous of course.

      vote insufficient? send a /msg to the monk give some real feedback
      (Update: fix wrong # of syllables on 1st and 3rd rows, and again)

    If you really like Haiku, put at various places on Internet, put it on mug, t-shirts sell them and give the royalty to the author.

    I like Haiku
