Votes do affect XP. The voter still draws a bonus for casting a vote until they reach monk level. The votee gets an XP bonus from the cast vote no matter what level the votee is at.

I cannot speak for other monks. I do not look at who wrote the article when I read it or when I vote. I vote on the article based on a couple of really simple criteria, based on where it is in the Monestary.

I vote for a question in Q&A or SoPW if the question makes me think "Hmm, how does that work?" or if I recognize it as a problem I have had and really had to slave out of it.

I vote for answers if they are clear, precise and are of a "good" tone. I also like answers that address larger issues and try to answer even the unasked questions.

Most everywhere else, I vote for an article if it makes me laugh. I vote for an article if it is well written and makes me think a bit.

Nowhere in my system do I care who wrote it.

I am sorry if we miss the shy people. They are important to this site. I am not sorry if we miss Larry Wall incognito, cause that is what he wants - by the very definition of the word incognito. I feel that allowing karma whores and the whole slashdot thing is more dangerous than missing the shy people.

Make your proposal. The goals are to encourage and increase the reward for particpating, to keep the signal/noise ratio high and make the levels somewhat indicative of how much a monk has given to the community. vroom reads this stuff. If it is a good idea, he will think about it.

I can't speak to the missed articles, cause I have a fair number that received nowhere near the number of votes they should have as well.
