in reply to Proposal: Option to Decline XP from voting

I'd prefer to see this combined with A Proposal for Additional Levels (which I thought got mostly positive commentary) and say that at certain levels you stop getting XP for various things.

For instance at Monk (6 in the new system) you'd lose the 50% bonus for voting out, at Vicar (11 in the new system) you'd lose the bonus for signing in, and at Bishop (16 in the new system) you'd lose the bonus for voting on someone else. With tye's XP scheme only 36 users would lose the voting bonus, a few hundred would lose the login bonus, and more people would have the "vote-out" bonus than do now.

Yes, I know that you wanted a smaller change. But the real issue with a big change is not getting people to agree to it, or getting it implemented, it is agreeing which change to make.

    My general impression is that A Proposal for Additional Levels will happen in some form or another. Main issues are tuits. It could also be argued that I am the reason that it hasnt happened as I have argued rather strongly a number of times that this change should coincide with some other internal changes, partially to make it easier to facilitate and partly to avoid changing the same code twice. My girlfriend is going away for the weekend though so I expect to have a nice of chunk of time this weekend to get my changes to Everything::NodeBase fished and tested and posted for peer review. How long it takes after that depends on how the changes are received. One nice bonus of the changes involved should be speedup, a subject that weve been workingon in the background for some time. In passing I wonder if you or others have noticed any speedup of the site over the past week or so?

    alter ego of demerphq

      I'd support that change. I think your XP and writeups count should reflect your overall contribution to the monestary.

        These are the current patch creation statistics, they dont tell the whole story by any means however. update: for instance the patching system was not around for the first few years of the site so all that work isnt included. Nor does this show if the patches are applied or how signifigant the patches are. Also, it seems people are downvoting this node. I posted it only for information sake. Im happy with the rewards I get on this site as it is without needing additional XP for my work.
