I think a "really exceptional node" is not an easy thing to find. Besides reading some guide on voting, I prefer to follow my own good sense.

I think one thing that is really important is to remember that this site is a learning tool not only for advanced programmers but for the beginners too - they are the future advanced programmers. I often see people downvoting a beginner-type of post. I, on the other hand, like to upvote'em when I feel that the guy is really working hard to solve his problem and is like "half-way from the solution". Have you guys ever thought about this?

So, my voting guidelines would be something like this:
  • Is the author asking an interesting question?
  • Is he really trying to solve his problems or did he just came here to find a ready solution?
  • If there is code on his post, is there any terrible logic error on it?
  • The code is well posted? Can I understand it?
  • Is he asking his question in a clear, respectful way?
  • Did his post generated a good, healthy and clever discussion?
I think you shouldn't keep saving your posts. I think you should be less selective - in the good meaning of the term - in your voting choose.

Just my personal thoughts on this matter.

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.
