in thread time for new highs?

As Randal said, I don't need more XP or a higher level. The point system and levels are a game. Not a competitive one, just a fun one. I get nothing for it other than being at the top of the list of people logged in. When I look at the scoreboard I have 4 people in front of me. One of whom I am probably going to pass when he has to take significant time off of PerlMonks to get set up in Europe, another being far enough ahead of me that I will not get close to him for a very long time if ever, and the remaining two I am not catching. This one because he gets XP faster than I do, and that one because he controls the whole system.

No, I answer questions because I find them interesting to answer and because I think that they help others. The questions that you asked were more fun to answer than the majority of the, "How do I do X?" questions out there. However because it happened in a buried conversation, not many are going to read it.

A bigger need IMO than finding ways to give away more XP is to find ways to direct newcomer's attention towards some of the top discussions that have already happened in the past. (A lot of home nodes do this informally. Perhaps that is enough.)
