I like #1 as is.

On #2 I think we could even out the 'goodness' of older versus newer nodes by making a weighted 'goodness' index. Ideally we would want this index to be the number of votes the post has received versus the number of people (of qualified voters) who have seen it. Since we probably don't have a record of the latter then we could divide by some other number akin to it. Example:
goodness = votes / number of viewers goodness = votes / (number of registered monks / number of posts on th +e week of the posting) # maybe?
It would be good to know what other statistics are kept of our use of the site in order to craft the best possible index.

I also think that it is a good thing to not disclose the votes a given post has. We could make this or the proposed goodness index remain hidden and be used only as a sorting key for search results.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
