in reply to Tracking your votes

It's an interesting thought, but I'm not sure it's really necessary.

First off, there's a risk of additional overhead with minimal benefit. After all, we already have a set of tools for discovering who the heaviest posters are and the relative reputations of their contributions.

For example:

  • Saints in our book shows you the highest level monks.
  • You can go to any monk's home node, choose their writeups, and then order those by Reputation to see which posts were the most well received.
  • Best Nodes and Worst Nodes provide useful information.
  • You can use jcwren's Statistics page to view all sorts of wonderful little details and tidbits
  • You can Super Search Users for references to a specific monk to find write-ups by that person that other monks like.
  • There are various snippets, craft, and CUFP's that provide PM-related functionality.

In short, you already have a number of tools available for discovering the best of what others have had to say.

Granted, good code doesn't always receive the same number of votes as an entertaining poem, but it's an idea, though tracking the posts linked in various home nodes might provide a clearer picture of what you might need to catch up on.

Besides, reputation already tracks the votes of the entire community. In some ways, that's more valuable than tracking your own voting habits.

[TStanley]: I'm sitting in the airport in Tampa, Florida at the moment, getting ready to head home.
[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
[Corion]: Yay, vacation time now - one week off work (but a Perl workshop in the middle ;)) )
[talexb]: TStanley I just realized that I was in your area for a convention back in April. We were at the high school for the weekend, the one with the long driveway. Nice spot.
