( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It is a 1/3 chance of increased XP for each ++ vote, until the value of the node goes over $NORM, which has been pretty stable recently in the 10 range. Then it goes to 50/50. And the chances get better as you go up farther. Voting/Experience System

I imagine you've just been "lucky". 1/3 chances aren't bad at all. My last node that got to 12 netted me about 6 xps (might have been slightly more or less because I don't know if I got the 2 point "login bonus"), where the expected value would have been 9/3 + 3/2 = 4 1/2, so at least here it seems pretty much inline. I've had 4-5 rep nodes that netted me no XPs as well.

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.
