XP is just a number

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thanks sundialsvc4. I agree on all points. I couldn't care less about the XP as well, but because XP comes with responsibility, I wanted to know what my responsibilities were. Even if I decide(d) not to use the new powers, I wanted to know what they were and how to use them wisely.

Regarding up/down voting, I'm on the same page. I'm sure I've only downvoted two or three times since I've been here. I'm a firm believer in rewarding positive behaviour/actions/etc with my votes. I'd sooner have extra votes at the end of the day after only upvoting than having no votes left to upvote with on a good post if I used some of them for downvoting.

ps. I thoroughly enjoy your posts and hold you in a high regard, but I appreciate and understand your modesty :)

Update: Fixed a mistake in my wording that reversed what I meant, thanks to jdporter's keen eye. Thanks!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
