in reply to Ranks Higher Than Saint

Is there a way to determine how many people of each level there are on Perl Monks?

Yes. Have a look at Number of Monks by Level.

It seems like every second person is a level 10 Saint.

That's because, as you can see from the above link, saints are such because they work hard at the Monastery.

As for your proposal, crenz has already told you where to look.

    From looking at that list, the only trend I'm seeing is that higher level monks have higher odds of having logged in within the last 24 hrs:

    lvl 24hr total pct --- ---- ----- ----- 1 82 26500 0.3% 2 33 1729 1.9% 3 46 1023 4.5% 4 50 676 7.4% 5 105 870 12.1% 6 108 583 18.5% 7 99 330 30.0% 8 56 187 29.9% 9 47 100 47.0% 10 190 386 49.2%

    I'm guessing that there's probably a difference in the number of post per capita, as well.

    So, my real question, about the issue with the quantity of saints (and I say this, after having only hit that level within the last week) -- why is this a problem? Would you rather have a community of people who don't contribute, and thus tend to stay at a lower level?

    I'm also going to assume that it's easier to get levels now (my second login was less than 5 months ago), as with a larger community, there's a greater number of people to upvote posts. There's only level inflation if by the time you hit saint, you actually care what level you are. You may care about reputation within the community, and XP may be a measure that has some vague correlation to it, but they are in no way the same.

    On a completely unrelated tangent -- as you can get XP for logging in, and then get XP from voting, I'd be interested to know who the highest XP lurker is (ie, never having posted anything)
