in reply to I used to be a saint

Yeah, I don't really like change any more than the next guy...

What I'm immediately missing is the binary nature of Sainthood. I'm not one, but I'm on track to be one. This has been taken away, and now there's a vague continuum that I'm drifting around in. There doesn't appear to be such a tangible threshold that I can 'make it' to... (Although we as a community may continue to revere 3000XP -- that remains to be seen.)

That's the emotional side though. Realistically, I'm 100% positive that this is a good move for PerlMonks. To a certain extent, the Saints are what this place is all about. They volunteer their time for not only infrastructure, but to share and teach some immensely valuable concepts. Anything that motivates, encourages or benefits those who have come before me and given me a hand up, I'm behind, without question.

So, to those People-Formerly-Known-As-Saints: Thank You.
