in reply to A Level Playing Field

Why hasn't this thread been downvoted?? All of you people who claim you always downvote nodes about XP, well here's your chance to downvote a node. It's all about XP and worse yet it has over 150 ++.

This new XP system is a big step in the wrong direction. If you really think XP doesn't matter then why are we expanding the system? Now instead of just 10 levels to go through we've got 28! Now you've got almost 3 times as many levels to worry about attaning before you can stop worring about XP. Also we go from needing the extremely high 3,000 points to needed the outrageous 100,000 points. Now point accumlation is even more important as you need 33+ times as many points.

XP is more important than ever before.

    That depends on why you are here. If you are here to exchange ideas, help folks etc. etc. then XP is merely the fruits of your labors and not the ends to the means.

    If all you care about is a title, then IMHO you are here for the wrong reasons.

    If all you want is XP then the new system just gives you more XP to go after! :-)

    Hello, Anonymous Monk-who-can-view-nodereps,

    your claim that this node is about XP is kind of silly. It’s more about site changes than XP, particularly anyone’s personal XP, much as it may be about the XP system.

    That said, a) I don’t care about XP b) the only nodes I have voted on in this thread were in subthreads which don’t have anything to do with XP. I don’t plan to change that.

    Wouldn’t downvoting a node that is about XP be a bit of an oxymoronic rule anyway?

    XP is more important than ever before.

    Obviously it is to you – why else are you posting this node anonymously? I thought you don’t think XP is important; why would downvotes phase you?

    I’m tempted to downvote your node for trolling and for your self-contradictory cowardice, but that would be a waste of a vote. (Instead I’m wasting a node.)

    Go away.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      Hello, Anonymous Monk-who-can-view-nodereps,
      As pointed out in another reply you can see nodereps as Anon.

      Now who's being silly? A massive change to the XP system isn't about XP? I don't follow that logic.

      I agree, I've never understood this behavior. That's why I'm pointing out the hypocrisy of it.

      I never said I didn't think XP isn't important. I'm complaining about those who do claim it isn't important but clearly act contrary. The truth is that XP is extremely important and we must discard this lie that it isn't important.
      Go away.
      After you.
