in reply to The Center of PerlMonk Mass

Thank you, Masem.

Will be interesting to see North American and European Mass centers, too. Then, we can meet there some Sunday morning and have a real mass, as monks should have... :)

As a compromise between 'one man - one vote' and XP points, you can use monk's level - otherwise center may soon closely follow merlyn :)

Update: Sorry I mis-read scain's post - he already said about levels, not XP points.

    Well, it's certainly not a big problem to do the NA and Euro centers; simply define some bounding box of lat/long to select said points, repeat calculations, and have xplanet center appropriately.

    XP weighting might be interesting; it's not as easy as the .xml file I get from jcwren doesn't have that info in it, but I'm sure there's ways of getting it in a couple more steps. I'd take Merlyn & vroom out specific only to avoid such problems. Fortunately, the method of generating this stuff is simple once you have the data.

    If merlyn were to be weighted by his XP (and severely influenced the center of mass), maybe someone should try to parse his itenerary and keep track of him.

    He seems to be a pretty mobile Monk ;)
