Good idea! I think this information should be included on the monk's home node. For example:

Experience: 7,000,000,000
Reputation: 3.28 (5.23 site average)
Level : 10

Perhaps we could use XP as an incentive? Keep your average above 200% site average and gain +1 XP per day?

    It seems to me that a better approach would be to rank the posts directly, by giving a score of, say, 0 to 10. Then we can list the people who have the posts with the highest average, the highest scoring posts of all time and, even, take care of the inflating reputation problem.

    Even the experience system could be modified to use the added benefit ranked posts would provide. Perhaps it might be interesting if, for a monk to progress past level x, it were necessary to have a minimum average score in the recent posts.

      Just to clarify, I didn't mean to NOT have a central page. I'd just like to see it on the monk's home node as well. For example, I could see wondering if a certain post were trustworthy -- I could simply click the author's name and get (at least) their reputation.

      A page with one central listing is useful, but I can see me using the individual monk's reputation more.
