You make a good point.

Of course, if we are thinking in terms of Monks, then we should not be concerned with the chart-o-saints. Sadly, we are but mortals (except two Monks whose XP demonstrates otherwise) and we have this obsessive flaw. Fine. In that case, I like the idea of some formula that takes into account our XP and our number of posts. Maybe (warning... introducing work) there could be a way to differentiate questions from answers from comments. Questions would be worth a certain amount, Answers with a good reputation would be worth some other formulaic amount, and comments would be worthless (or worth less, depending on how you want to read that.)

I'm not sure of a good formula yet... but the algorithm is begining to take shape in my head.

    Well, answers with a good reputation already are "rewarded" in the form of additional XP for the user who wrote them, as well as allowing "punishment" for nodes with a bad reputation.
