I'm new here so I think this interesting. Surely the vote value will always go down over time if the Monastery grows? So far I noticed I have a vote surplus, I used 2 yesterday and 3 today (I'm normally pretty neutral). You're not going to tell me I only get 8 votes _ever_ are you? So where are the surplus votes going? Probably to /dev/null unless corrupt Abbots are trading them behind the herb gardens. If I am typical and there's a vote surplus doesn't $NORM depend only on voter activity? Also whats the relationship between votes cast and reputation? I gave you a vote and you got 10 points. If everybody has 1 vote to give and gave it then $NORM would be 10 exactly right? The 0.24 variance is votes that went down the plughole? So I'm guessing votes are a kind of accumlatable currency of value. Wanna buy some votes, maybe I know a guy who knows a guy who has some spare? :)

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
