( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm not sure I like the idea of needing a ++ vote to get any XP for a post. Many times if I post a reply 2 or more levels removed from a root node, it is overlooked and never voted for. Part of this may be because it is useful only to the person who I was replying to, and they may be out of votes or simply choose not to vote for me.

I think one of the goals of any change in the voting system should be to prevent the 'karma whoring' phenomenon seen on slashdot. People who post a hasty reply right below the root node are more likely to get votes simply because they are the first reply people see when they look at the node, and as long as they are somewhat useful and polite, they will get votes. This is not to say that people who write in depth replies that appear much further down the page don't get votes, they often do. But I think we should strive to continue rewarding the latter behavior and possibly even discouraging the former.

Just my .02,
Mark
