( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I agree with you completely, It should be your contributions to the site that determine your XP. But that's obivously not what happened with merlyn. Someone saw that he was around and decided that they'd give him another 1_000_000 XP just because of who he is. He has made valuable contributions to the site (even without the extra XP he'd be in the top 10 monks), but I'm not sure what good the 'free' XP do.

I guess my question is really: where do you draw the line? Is there a list of Perl Names who would be given free XP if they started frequenting the site?

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.
