in reply to Sharing credit for a submission

This problem has an obvious solution: post anonymously and place both your names as co-authors at the top.

This way, no one gets more credit for it than the other one(s).

Or are you really that materialistic that you crave these silly experience points? I've been wandering around the monastary looking for new and exciting Perl-things for longer than some people with 20 times my XP-level. My first account was CBAS but I never used it, so what, it's the stuff I learned that counts!

Now go into a corner and print "I will not care about XP and write more kick-ass articles!\n";

heh, I just like sharing (there's a BIG difference between sharing and leeching ... I ain't no damn lazy hippy!)

Have a nice life.
