Don't give XP for votes AT ALL. I think it encourages people to vote when they shouldn't.

I disagree. Giving XP for votes encourages new users to start voting. As you rise in ranks, XP becomes less important (for most, I'm pretty sure at least - especially as it makes less and less difference to the total) but by then you have gotten into the habit of voting.

Of course people vote when they shouldn't, but generally, good nodes rise and bad nodes doesn't just the same. The votes on frontpaged nodes and the first posts are another matter however. ;-)


You have moved into a dark place.
It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
