Proposed XP System Changesby vroom (His Eminence)

A new system has been devised and proposed to me by a group of users. Here it is:
The changes are (in the order they'll be implemented)
The odds for the XP bonus to the voter remains flat, regardless, but is lowered from 1/3 to 1/4.
Lemme know what you think, personally I think it will help to make levels a better indication of site contributions. The reduction/elimination of the voting bonus will prevent users from gaining XP by only voting. Also this change will also hopefully make votes more meaningful because people won't feel compelled to use them up but will use them to in effect say "good job!" or "this is unhelpful, or incorrect." This will make votes more meaningful because people will only vote on posts they think deserve a push in either direction.
