( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The problem with this suggestion is that it simply formalizes something many of us have been working very hard to avoid; that is, votes being cast for individuals rather than posts. Generally speaking, it quickly becomes clear which monks are the most helpful/accurate/insightful, and I don't believe a system such as the one you are proposing would actually help that very much.

There are a lot of changes that many different monks have thrown about as being solutions for various problems; the inflation of vote counts, for example, or the apparent ease with which relatively new and inexperienced monks are advancing their level of experience. Before we rush into implementing any of them, I'd like to see a lot more discussion of the possibilities and their expected and hoped for effects. Like the old carpenters' rule of measure twice, cut once, let's be sure of what we're doing and what we hope to accomplish before we make too many changes.

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.
