in reply to -ve XP, node reputation, voting and learning

There may or may not be good reasons why your node was down voted. I'm not even going to try and evaluate it.

In a community like this one, if you never get a node with a negative reputation, then you aren't taking enough chances. You can't always be universally loved and appreciated. Don't try and you'll be happier and more productive. Clearly, your progress is positive, feed on that and ignore the downvotes. For all you know, they could be random and you don't want to skew how you post based on that, do you?

    TBH, the only reason that particular node caught my eye was that it was the only one I could remember being downvoted, let alone having a negative rep. Of course, by starting this node I've managed to fix that :)

    As for trying to avoid negative reps, I can't say I'd change my posting style to do so - I try and make my posts something positive and try and help out. Sometimes I wonder if I should post a response to a particular node since I'm fairly new around PM and definitely learning, but then I decided that I could either sit in the background or try and comment/help where I can.
