the system can contain seperate subsystems, allowing the meaning of XP to be more personalized.
It is often (and truly) said that XP don't mean enough that they should be taken seriously. That doesn't stop people from expressing the desire that they should be made meaningful, and there seems to be desire to make that happen. I think having a "personalized meaning" falls somewhat short of that. Here are a couple ideas I think could move things in that direction.
Drop the random element
Randomness reduces information, it doesn't contribute to it.
Keep separate scores
Number of writeups is already tracked. Total number of votes cast and net number of upvotes minus downvotes received can be derived from things that are currently tracked. Each level could have a minimum score requirement for each category (as well as a total score requirement), to ensure well-rounded monks. At higher levels, the minima for upvotes and writeups would get higher, and those for voting would level out or even drop off.

Bonus things like casting all your votes or appearing in the Daily Best wouldn't have minima, but would contribute to your total.

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.
