This is all a roundabout way of getting to my point. Those monks who think they haven't earned their 'points' are wrong. It's not just Perl skill, it's contribution to the Monastery.

Indeed. Don't forget, seeking wisdom can be rewarded as much as giving it -- as well it should be. Good questions involve thought, for both the questioner and those who would answer. A good question serves more than just the asker, and it serves more than just those with similar questions who don't ask them. It also serves everyone else who might also *know* the answer to then get exposed to additional answers and approaches.

To be honest, if I were to voice a moderation/voting suggestion (and I guess I'm about to) it would be that ++ votes on top level 'seekers' posts should have a slighly higher probability of garnering XP in recognition of the fact that good questions (at all levels) are the driving force behind the sharing of knowledge. The only downside of higher XP's I can envision is that some might still view XP as a knowledge indicator and once they reach a certain point they may be too embarrassed to ask a seemingly 'simple' question that any <insert level here> monk should know. More recognition of questions might help alleviate any such potentially stifling effect.
