Nothing against the Perl Gurus, but I thought the idea of XP was to encourage activity on this site. XP is a measure of how responsive and knowledgable you've been on this site, not in the Perl community in general.

XP are reasonably fair so long as they're based on what you do here. Otherwise it's a popularity contest, like elementary-school student body presidential campaigns.

I'd find it pretty demoralizing to start handing out honorary XP, because it would make it meaningless. If you wanted to create another statistic, perhaps something D&Doid like "Fame" or "Virtue", and list that in the Saints List, it might work. Gurusamy Sarathi should have mega-fame, but (as far as I know) he doesn't post here too much.
