I think that, as with any other scheme to make XP more visible, this will just move PM closer to the degenerate karma-whoring that makes /. what it is.

My mood aside, I keep seeing relatively new members asking for ways to make XP seem more important, or obvious. Here's the lesson, simplified. XP is a general indication of experience here. It has little bearing on quality of posts. If what you seek is to know who makes good posts, hang around and read them. Get involved here and you'll eventually figure out more about each poster than a simple number could ever tell you. Part of the atmosphere of PM is the lack of condescension in most posts. Hang around here a while, get to know the other monks, and XP won't seem important anymore.
