There are 10 levels. Ten seems like a good number because
that's how many fingers people usually have, and fingers
arturo's hints of dimensions and honorifics
caught my attention. How about leaving these ten XP based
levels, and adding another dimension to them, one somehow
based on reputation?
This could use a degree scale of 1 to 10 (what else :-)
calculated dynamically by looking at the average reputation
of all users above level 1. If the worst avg rep was 3 and
the best 33 the scale would look like this:
1 - - - - - - - - 10 (degree)
3 - - - - - - - - 33 (average rep)
Now imagine an extreme example of a friar with avg rep of
33 and a saint with avg rep of 3 illustrated by ranking
them as a 10th degree Friar
and 1st degree Saint
would tell you something useful. Since both the degree
scale and each user's avg rep vary, they could
change in interesting ways.
Update: MeowChow suggested in cb that avg rep might
not be the best measure. Maybe total reputation would be more
accurate? I don't know. I'm just suggesting another
dimension somehow based on reputation. The rest is
