Have you seen your User Settings? There is a Show quips on XP loss/gain messages option that triggers such messages.

D'Oh! I was aware of the quips. (I didn't really know I could disable them, although it was easy to suspect that, but that doesn't matter because they do not annoy me.) Only, I didn't realize this was one.

On a largely OT, I presume, basis: anyone care to explain it? I just can't make sense of it, possibly due to English not being my mother tongue. An USA/UK biased cultural reference, maybe? (Or am I just that ignorant?)

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.
