S/N ratio might be an interesting statistic to monitor... but to be honest, I don't know where my XP comes from. All I know is that occasionally the XP nodelet tells me I've gained some XP, it doesn't tell me where it came from. Is that info even available?
I assume that you mean XP when you say "rep"... how do "I" get rep, as opposed from my nodes getting rep, and how do I get rep from things other than writeups? XP I can see, but rep?
But it occurs to me... that S/N formula looks like it's based on the intensity of the signal, not the power (which would be 10*log(...)). Which would make more sense to use?
