The larger problem though, becomes scalability. If you make the weight of higher level users votes count for even more XP, this increase compounded by the constantly growing number of total PerlMonks all voting more and more total votes everyday, it gets to the slippery slope point where a newbie signs up, makes a great post that gets moderated to the Monsastery Gates and gets so many votes so quickly that they climb several user levels in one day. If 31 high level monks voted a ++ on a post and each of those was worth 3 or 7 XP combined with say 127 normal votes (as there would be far more total users) and you have a first post leaping right onto the doorstep of the Monk user level. It's gotta scale well with many more users and votes and still be meaningful.

I think Shendal is right on above that we first need to evaluate what the XP system is supposed to designate (if not solely participation which includes voting). TTFN.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
