Thank you for all the good hints :-)

I'm afraid that in some manner, I'm an XPwhore as well: I like it when I get experiance and reach a new level. It's like a new game.

E.g. at the german-language forum at, I had the most writings for a long time (about one year). But when I reached about 3500 messages (there is no exp), it became less important to me, and in the meantime, I mostly answer questions nobody else answers or the like. So, another one overtook me and now is leading at about 800 messages. :-)

I think here at perlmonks it might be about the same: as long as you are rising, it's important, but after a while it is not so important any more.

Ps: another hint for XPwhoring might be: write down some of your thoughts and ask the people how they'd use it or what would they do, and that in a less technical way, just in a more common way :-)

Best regards,
perl -le "s==*F=e=>y~\*martinF~stronat~=>s~[^\w]~~g=>chop,print"
