I like this last post! I think the XP-system is good...
It's rewarding to come back to PM to just vote everyday and to read new nodes and to answer them. It also is good to get a fast answer on a node because most monks come everyday to cast their votes. This site is based on interaction between their members. The cortibution is not only in writing FAQ's, HOWTO's and giving answers to nodes but also voting. There are monk discussions, well getting XP to vote and to answer these nodes is also important.
So IMHO you also could get a higher status to vote, write/answer nodes and interact with all the users AND come back everyday to this site. Well you need to motivate people to come to this site(even people who aren't perl guru's) every day and not just when they need a answer to their node!
Maybe... giving a higher impact of votes cast by higher monks is maybe ... the only change that could be done ...
My opinions may have changed,
but not the fact that I am right
