in reply to A Proposal for Additional Levels

Looks interesting. I'd make a few changes:
  1. Bell-curve the votes. I'm hard-pressed to use a half-dozen votes when I log in, and I think that's not uncommon. 10 votes seems a more reasonable point for the pope than 100
  2. Voting should be worth less the higher up you go. I'd ramp it to zero chance of XP about 2/3 of the way up the level chart. If you want to be pope, it ought to be by other people's judgement of your actions.
  3. Might as well spread out the level powers some
  4. Allow people to opt out of the system and stop collecting XP
  5. Age the XP. Bits rot, why not XP?
Or, since it really is mostly meaningless, hand out xp at random and give a 4% chance per day of getting the Bozo The Clown background and image set...

    Well I had 40 votes today and you just got my last one.. I use them up at least 2-3 times a week.

    2. Voting should be worth less the higher up you go. I'd ramp it to zero chance of XP about 2/3 of the way up the level chart. If you want to be pope, it ought to be by other people's judgement of your actions.

    I'm never going to have the quality of posts that the Gods put out. Voting is my action.

    Generally speaking I like the idea.. Makes the ladder longer

      You think all our posts are good? Think again. Most of my posts are horrible, this one included.

        I vote ++ if they entertain me.. so you're going to take my ++ and like it!

[Corion]: Hehe - $work is a place where we have lots of (money) accounts, and lots of journals where every transaction is recorded. But our HR system where the accounts of hours worked and vacation days taken are stored, there is no real account of who changed ...
[Corion]: ... that balance, and when. And it seems to me that they somehow really messed up the database since the start of the year and have been frantically adding and subtracting numbers from the totals, but without trace ;)
