( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Who cares about the XP. You have come to this website for one of a dozen reasons:

  • To learn
  • To help others learn
  • friendship
  • reference
  • because it's just a cool site
  • The list goes on and on... My point is, I've written only a handful of posts and I have more XP then I ever thought I would have. I still consider my knowledge of Perl limited and I come here mainly for reference, when I find a post that helps me (new or old) I give it a ++ and also any responses that may have helped me to understand my knowledge of the subject in question.

    I think you are putting too much importance in the XP given on this site. If XP were taken away completely 99.9% of us would still come to the site for many of the reasons previously mentioned (the other .1% are usually looking for any reason to leave the site forever - who knows, this post might even do it)

    Just come by on a regular basis, check out the posts and learn from them. If you are knowlegable enough to help someone out while you are here, even better (let's face it, you don't REALLY understand a subject until you can explain it to someone else). Many of us have developed good friendships with other monks while we are here (the chatterbox is a good indication of this) but it's all about learning and teaching.

    XP given at this site do not show your skill of the subject. Many people on this site have fewer XP then I do, but they are far more knowlegable of Perl and have been doing it longer then I have.

    Just relax, have fun, teach, learn and the XP will come.
