Yes, it is quite the mystery! At least I couldn't find anything. That won't stop me speculating though. :)

Searching indicates the (now dormant) Petruchio was the driving force behind changing the Perl Monks levels:

As you can see, all 28 of Petruchio's levels of 2005 remain intact, with just one minor tweak, Petruchio's level 28 (Pope, 100,000+) being split into two:

  • Level 28, Patriarch (100,000+)
  • Level 29, His Eminence (1,000,000+)

Why? I have no idea, but after examining the early history of the Perl Monks experience system, I cannot restrain myself from speculating. It seems that vroom gave himself a gift of one million XP as a reward for founding this site (to balance the books, Perl Monk antivroom was created with an XP in excess of minus one million! :).

So, and this is just a guess, perhaps the "His Eminence" level of 1,000,000+ XP was created for vroom, and vroom alone, designed to be unreachable by other monks ... though it seems we now need more (attainable) 100,000+ levels given we have three monks above 100,000 XP with nothing more to realistically strive for.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
