I know this could be judged as somewhat akin to complaining about the texture of the left index fingernail on Michaelangelo’s David... ...but I thought I might anyway:

Is there any profound reason for having a voting option on nodes submitted by anonymous monks?

Outside of the possibility of the node appearing in either the Best or Worst Node lists, most monastery residents are unlikely see much difference between a Anonymous Monks node at +25 or –25.

Instead of this waste of votes I humbly put forward the following options:

A – We kill the vote option on nodes posted by Anonymous Monks
B – The votes spent on such a node go towards a charitable cause.

With the latter option, the votes could be used for all sorts of interesting things. A daily random act of small blessing? A fund for under priviledged monks? A prize for completing quests and awards?

Maybe we could organise it so that we get the best of both worlds ie. A vote that gets donated but still shows up in the node for statistical things such as thresholds etc.

Thank you for your brain cramp time.

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.
