in reply to Higher level posts

I'm not a very high level monk, and I think this is an interesting idea. Unfortuantely, I don't forsee this as a true probability. Many of the monks simply do not have enough time on a monthly basis to post an indepth tutorial, thesis, HOWTO, or FAQ. If a monk is unable to fulfill his monthly educational posting obligation, what will his punishment be? I think it would be quite unfair to drop someone 100+ experience because they were unable to provide an educational, indepth post. Another problem with this is that some people are not graced with excellent writing abilities. Small posts that provide concise answers to questions are simple, however, larger, more complex posts that require elaboration on a given topic are impossible for some monks, and they should not be held back because they are unable to write FAQ's, HOWTO's, or Tutorials. Some people can provide direct answers to questions, and others excel at writing Tutorials, FAQs, and HOWTOs. I don't think it's right to hold someone back for something they simply cannot do.

Just my thoughts,
