While I agree that ability is important, contribution to the site is what, in my opinion, should determine XP on this site. Just like on everything. Webster might have a great thesaurus and dictionary, but he didn't write much on everything. Perhaps the reputation of one's posts should become more important. This way, people who write really good nodes will rise to the top, whereas people who just write a lot of nodes will not rise so quickly. If necessary, the amount of experience to achieve certain levels would be modified accordingly.

Also, the sections. I like to comment on a poll, but my comments on a poll aren't as important as a code contribution is. Perhaps WHERE you post should also make a difference.

Just a few more thoughts :-)

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!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • 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
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
