in thread A Proposal for Additional Levels

I for one don't see any reason for making a change to the system without it being driven by some form of elitist 'sensablility'. The old timers want to stay on top and be extra special like they used to be. That might be human nature, but it doesn't make it the right decision.

I think this suggestion simply underlines that.

Many certainly deserve it. But changing the fundamentals of the system is also a bad idea, IMHO. I've heard some suggestions about branching based on community vs. expertise for example. This is something that's not reflected in the current system and many see it as a Good Thing.

I'm usually one who votes for change. In this case I don't see a compelling argument to alter a system that clearly works in building this community. It Ain't Broke... Leave it alone.



Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!

[marto]: Corion, pretty much. How are things? You were at LPW?
[Corion]: marto: Yep, but I didn't make it up north, sorry ;)
[Corion]: But LPW was enjoyable, even though it's always a bit hectic due to cramming everything into one day
[Corion]: I have no feeling about how my talk was received, but I'm happy with it, which counts the most to me ;-D
[Corion]: Also, London is always a nice visit, as I got to meet a friend there, and spent some time offline, working on "minor" features of the shadertoy thing ;)
[marto]: maybe next year when the kids are a little older I'll have time to attend perl events in Europe
