in thread Monks with control over Anonymous?

I think Anonymous Monk votes should be votable on like any other. There are some quite good things posted occasionally (as well as a lot of complete crap!).
The less anonymous among us should be able to have some influence on whether an AM post is considered informative or actually is complete rubbish. Just as we can for the logged in users.
Unless the voting system is merely for 'give user xp' which seems a little trivial.
It should be possible to only view nodes with a reputation > 2, for example, to only get the better (or more popular at any rate) nodes.

    I agree the reputation of nodes created by Anonymous Monks should be ranked for quality just like any others, but Anonymous Monk shouldn't get XP. Basically I just need to short-circuit where a user gains XP if the owner of that node is Anonymoous Monk.

    My original thought was that users above a certain level would get certain editorship powers and I didn't want Anonymous Monk to have any of those for obvious reasons.

      I would be very surprised, if Anonymous Monk were allowed to have XP, if it ended up with a positive XP balance :)
      but yes. AM needs to be unable to do anything powerful.
