in reply to No more XP for voting!

Nothing personal Anonymous, but this idea bites! I'm one of the longest active monks here and I know that the majority of my XP ( hence rank ) comes from my daily voting and not from my posts. It's nice to recieve recognition and standing for staying active. Especially when it reflects 4 years of eyerolling at RTFM and Troll nodes so as to find the worthy nodes to upvote. While my contribution is nothing compared to the Gods it is nice to know that there is at least recognition of daily reading off them via meaningless XP.

I don't agree with removing voting from the Monestary Gates as this is where I vote based upon the trust I put in my fellow monks ability to discern quality posts. Over the years I have found it quite reliable ( for the most part ).
