in thread Canonization Without Representation

You have no explicit feudal hierarchy. I'm exposing it now. The longer you have participated from ancient then to modern now is directly correlated to when you were born and thus, unfair to me personally and all younger monks. The gamification element of this site needs revamped, smells like mothballs.

the longer you participate the more xp you're able to acquire
My point exactly, the longer you've been ABLE to participate is a distinct and obvious advantage to those that were born earlier.

the number of participating monks declined over the years
More welfare benefits to those that participated during a period of time other than the one I'm participating in.

in the early years it might have been easier for good posts to attract more votes (because the electorate was bigger) voting gets rewarded, and some (silent) monks came back every day to cast all their votes

How can the electorate be bigger and some monks are coming back and casting their votes? Total contradiction. Yet even more hypocrisy. Obviously you are defending this system because of the opulent rewards it has heaped upon you personally. Well I can ++ that. However, once you see that this system is immoral, as I have demonstrated, you cannot sanction this immoral system any longer. #28, Saint LanX right there straddling the welfare bell curve.

    My point exactly, the longer you've been ABLE to participate is a distinct and obvious advantage to those that were born earlier.

    Here you are wrong, dear brother trippledubs:

    Lets assume that BrowserUk is a male inhabitant of the UK, born 1965. So he has a life-expectancy of ~76 years, in which he can shine as a monk. This span is reduced further by the fact that perlmonks wasn't invented before he was 34 - so he has only ~42 years to provide all his insight to the monastery.

    Let's then look at you ... and lets guess that you were born in 1995 - so you life-expectancy is probably 3 years higher. Furthermore you didn't have to wait that long for the doors of the monastery to open - you could already join it with 17, giving you 20 more years of monkhod than BrowserUk.

    So all you have to do is to write as many valuable nodes as he does, day by day. And then you can be sure that your time will come, and you will reach levels of wisdom (and XP) that leave us old ones far behind.

    Be patient and don't give up - time is on your side!

    TGIF, Rata

    So, what you're saying is "I'm a millennial, and I deserve free stuff for doing nothing, and if not, I'll scream age discrimination!".

    I lurked for nine years before making my first post in 2009. Does that make me nine years younger? Even though I missed those first nine years, I still rank reasonably well on the saints, but who cares? It means nothing.

    As far as "rewards", the rewards I get from Perlmonks is the ability to help others, receive help when I'm in need, and the respect from the fellow Monks for being a hard-working member of the forum.

    And it's "unfair" to 10 year olds, and five year olds and unborn fetuses; not to mention the lazy, the lousy, the unskilled and the disinterested.

    Bwah! Didums.

    I know, right? Like, I just hate that my Dad has earned more money than me so far.

    Nice trolling!

    I told you the ranking has no practical outcome, besides having more (read "too many") votes.

    Please note, I started in Sep 03, 2008! :)

      Nice trolling!

      You overuse this word too much, and you never explain how/why it makes it trolling

      Lately the troll label gets put on super aggressively

      Are you really that touchy?
