in reply to Another consideration on considering

Maybe a list of nodes to read each time a new level is reached would be good to have. The XP nodelet would be the obvious place:
"You have gained 2 XP, you have 499 points before level 7, please read On Responsible Considerations and ...insert other Friar related nodes here...".

    You can visit this node for a summary of each level's powers. Within the description of powers for a certain level is also recommended reading for using those powers. I know it's helped me when I've hit the next level.

    Interesting idea... The problem is that you (or at least, I) can wind up missing changes like that in the XP nodelet, if you're clicking talk to send to the chatterbox, or you're previewing/posting a node, for instance.

    I think the original suggestion was pretty good. If you haven't considered before (or even possibly frontpaged?), getting diverted to a page that refers to On Responsible Considerations or How do I moderate? (or Am I a power-mad Friar? :)) would not be a bad thing...

    All we need now is to get a pmdev interested.

      I imagine it would be relatively difficult to fit into the XP nodelet code, where it doesn't really belong. A simple solution that addresses the elusiveness of the XP nodelet messages that should also be much easier to add somewhere: when you reach 490 XP, you get a root /msg saying something along the lines of the text that was proposed. That will probably also attract more attention, ie not be so prone to conditioned click-through-EULA reactions.
