MF,

I'm not certain this is entirely necessary. As I understand the level system, it provides a darkly reflected idea of the community's idea of your contributions. I don't believe it's meant to reflect your skill in Perl itself. Again, it's a sketch of your contributions to the community.

While the specific threads escape me, I've seen many of the higher level monks post messages that say, in effect, there are many areas of Perl and its use that they wished they knew better. Take a look at Best Nodes and Most Visited Nodes. You'll see that some of the most popular nodes deal with the process or the philosophy of Perl, rather than the mechanics.

Besides, there aren't that many PM users with that high of XP. Check out the bell curve on the Monk Stats. According to the Overall Stats, there are nine saints, five pontiffs, and thirteen bishops, or slightly over 1/2 of one percent of all users. This hardly seems a significant number of users to be concerned about. They know who among them has the highest Perl skills.

While I personally would love to be able to claim Demigod as a professional job title, I personally believe the existing XP levels are more than adequate for this particular community.
