As I slowly climbed the XP ladder towards the seemingly impossible level of monk (let alone saint) I considered what I might do when I got there. Perhaps start over again with a new userID?
About XP: one measure that might be interesting would be a display not of absolute XP, but rather of some combination of number of recent posts and associated XP. Also, if the database contained XP broken down by source (just showing up, votes cast, votes received) that might also show some interesting statistics.
Happily, for current members all that extra 'stuff' isn't necessary -- we grow to recognize posters whose Perl-fu is strong (and whose is weak) and accord their posts the appropriate amount of attention.
It's a fun sort of meritocracy, this place.
Life is short: get busy!
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
