in reply to Bug in the saint's board

Another possible tie-breaker is time when the XP was gained so that the first monk to reach the XP number gets the higher ranking.

This, of course, depends on XP changes being timestamped...

Then there always is asciibetical, or Moe could just write a really popular node and break the tie himself.

    Though, adding the timestamping of XP changes would be useful in adding another featurette - instead of providing the aggregate XP change, saying "You gained 213423 XP and lost 2 XP" (or something of the nature ...)

    Moe could also downvote one of more nodes of the other guy. Or log in his other identity, and upvote his own posts.


      But of course, a saint being .... well, saintly, would never resort to such tactics.

        It would just show how silly it is to give someone who hasn't done more than collecting a certain about of xp the title "saint".
