I am "Big XP Baby" button

by Anonymous Monk
on Dec 20, 2003 at 04:29 UTC ( #315991=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I think that each monk should be able to turn in 10 votes for a "I am BIG XP BABY" button. This button would appear when the monk is viewing any node of his that has negitive reputation. When the button is pushed the node's reputation score becomes 0 and the message "monksoandso is a BIG XP BABY" gets writen to the Chatter Box. What do you monks think?

    ++ for being original, but is a bad idea.

    I have thirty votes each day, so I could reset 3 bad nodes each day and I will do so in the dead of night so nobody sees the "I'm a BIG XP BABY" in CB.

    This will not improve the quality of the nodes.

      There is no "dead of night" here, the Monastery being intertwined with the whole spatial continuum (read global). Someone at the antipodes would see the message in full daylight.

        The monastery is not that global. It is rather empty in the evening, but in the afternoon when it's evening in the US, it's full. So, there must be much more people here from America than from Europe.

    Errmmm... no. Well, we could still have the "I Am a Big Baby" button, and the message could still be put in the CB. Hey, I'd press it every once in a while for kicks. But node reputation is actually somewhat useful (at least I think it is), so being able to reset it is a bad idea.

      I just got bored, so I decided to actually implement a "BIG XP BABY" button on my home node. Enjoy :-)

    No. A node's XP is not a monk's XP, and chatterbox messages disappear.

    Sorry, I have to disagree. I have a node I could use such a button on right now. I got shellacked on a careless answer I gave. But I don't especially want to get rid of the node embarrassing though it is. It reminds me to be very cautious about what I write. Another salutary lesson(I get lots) and worth the XP.

    And, btw, it is 9:36 pm on a Saturday night and there are 12 monks in the monastery (up from 6 a little earlier). I am joined by other geeks with nothing else to do on a weekend night(or a burning desire to study Perl). Someone always sees what is going on.

[Your Mother]: American English vowels are pretty lazy/mumbly in general.
