Always some thing interesting at PM!

on Feb 19, 2016 at 18:02 UTC ( #1155652=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

After logging into PM this morning, I found what I thought was a new monk called 'FlexAgain'. To my amazement he has been around much longer than I, and is still Level 1.

FlexAgain:

User since: Oct 24, 2002 at 11:47 EDT Last here: Feb 19, 2016 at 10:49 EST (2 hours ago) Experience: 18 Level: Initiate (1) Writeups: none

It this a typo, or has he been AM for years?

Regards...Ed

    I'm not sure what you mean by "AM", but I don't think any of the information you see is incorrect. The monk is still Level 1 because Experience=18. This is the monk's XP, which is less than 20. Refer to Voting/Experience System. The monk has no writeups, which means there has been no opportunity to collect upvotes. The monk also probably never votes on any nodes and visits the site infrequently. In other words, the monk does none of the things which would lead to increasing XP.

    I registered here about 7 years before I had my "pass the salt" moment and finally wrote my first post (asking for help with some XML).

    For the most part, you can get a lot out of PM just by searching, or even just choosing it over other links when Googling for answers. Perl has been a very stable language for a long time insofar as stuff that worked a decade ago is very unlikely to be broken by later versions (unlike some other languages I use). This makes it easy to solve problems by search if you understand the basic logic of what you want to do and can read the examples in module docs and read a perldoc page.

      Monks keeping silent for 7 years in a monastery? Who would have thought? :)

      "Thank you." "You're Welcome...Oops!"

        lol! That's a silent vow broken! (thanks for the laugh)

        Spooty has been here 12.5 years without breaking his(?) silence, as far as posting is concerned anyway.
