(Kidding) XP-whoring HOW-TO
You forgot : Be the first to answer
More seriously, I'm really a XP-WHore but I don't feel it isn't something necessary bad.
Let me explain :
I like recognition from my peer (through XP, reputation, rank...)
It's not my goal, however, it's only a good support in my path to Perl Mastery and sometimes and indication of my progress/weknesses when I post technical posts...
As long a you're aware that rank is not a tied only to your Perl level, but to the way you contribute to the monastery it doesn't seem so evil.
- A lot of posts often mean, a lot of answers or questions which leads to answers => Lots of info (you contribute!)
- Being pleasant is not only a way to gain XP it's also a way to make discussion pleasant and more interesting (or even possible)
