in reply to Monk to Monk jobs

I still think the right way to approach this is by limiting access to the jobs section. Yeah, make it it's own area, but don't allow everyone to see it.

I propose adding the section only for those seriously involved in the site. Perhaps, levels 4+ (monks, and monk-wannabes *grin*). Keeps the recruiters out (but, hey, if they're willing to put in the time contributing to the site, I have less of a problem).

    I like the idea of restricting access to the jobs section, except for the fact that it is possible to reach levels 4 and 5 without contributing to the site. You can get to these levels by showing up and voting out, not necessarily adding anything to the discussion. So this would need some more thinking about before this was implemented.

      Granted, "showing up and voting out" does gain you some experience, but I seriously doubt someone would take the time to get up to fourth or fifth level without posting even once. Let's take a look at how long it would take, with the recent changes to the Voting/Experience System:

      Just to get to level 2, you need 20 XP. With no votes, you can only show up. If you do this daily, you have a 25%chance at 2 XP. Given that, it would take 40 days to do that.

      Next, you need 50 XP (30 more) for level 3. With 5 votes a day, and a 25% chance to get a +1 with each vote, I calculate it'll take another 18 days.

      But, we're still not there. We need 100 XP (50 more) for level 4, with 8 votes a day now. That's gonna take another 12 days.

      Total that up, and we've got 70 days. And that assumes you log in every day. Shoot, we're still not to 'monk' level (for those of you keeping score at home, it would take another 23 days to do that). I doubt someone is going to make that kind of commitment, just to see a few job postings.

      I think it's far more likely that the user will post, vote, and, in general, contibute to the site. In fact, simply the act of voting (wisely) is contributing to the site.

        Some _one_ may not, but the same people that build spiders could build an agent. Forget about it for 3-4 months, and look at it once the section has got some content and they can get in.
