This is a little off-track, but I just had an idea about the "XP-growth" problem. How about assigning monk titles based on an XP curve for all levels above scribe (or some other arbitrary level). (I made up the percentile numbers, just using them for example)
LevelPercentile
saint%99.9
pontiff%99
bishop%95
abbot%90
friar%75
monk%50
This has the downside that people could go down levels while still gaining XP. Of course, it also punishes high level monks for not contributing by dropping them back. But it does keep everything in proportion, preventing us from having a site where everyone is a saint if they hang out long enough.
