You make a good point.

Of course, if we are thinking in terms of Monks, then we should not be concerned with the chart-o-saints. Sadly, we are but mortals (except two Monks whose XP demonstrates otherwise) and we have this obsessive flaw. Fine. In that case, I like the idea of some formula that takes into account our XP and our number of posts. Maybe (warning... introducing work) there could be a way to differentiate questions from answers from comments. Questions would be worth a certain amount, Answers with a good reputation would be worth some other formulaic amount, and comments would be worthless (or worth less, depending on how you want to read that.)

I'm not sure of a good formula yet... but the algorithm is begining to take shape in my head.

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.
