in reply to History now influences voting

Good work. I gathered from one comment that you'd be delaying actually putting voteavg into the equation. If so, I suggest that voteavg be set to 1 for all monks now (and for new monks at creation). Otherwise, you'd end up either waiting a very long time for all monks to cast enough votes to get a reasonable initial value or shortchanging monks who rarely vote of some XP for a number of votes. YMMV.

    $voteavg doesn't enter into the equation for XP earned for up-votes. But I think I'll change it to default to 1 as you suggest anyway (and then adjust existing $voteavg values).

    Update: Default for new users is now 1. 1 added to the voteavg of the 20 users who had managed to get their voteavg below 0, all others had theirs set to 1 (like adding 1 to all but w/o overflowing above 1). Over 400 users had voted and raised their voteavg above 0 before I made this change.

      Oops; I knew that and yet somehow didn't know it.
