Should the All-Time Xper rank be adjusted to the new Xper point rules?

For example, before every comment was 3 xper, and now it's 1. Getting MH is 5 points, while before it was 10. Not that I care about cracking the all-time rank, nor will I ever be on here enough to do it, I still think it's unfair to those who will.

What do you think?

  • I think it's fine the way it is.

    They might as well receive some recognition for putting in the time and energy that they have... and in any case I doubt it would matter. Those at the top have lived on this site for years. I'd argue no can catch them except those near enough below them.

    • If that's the case in my opinion they may as well do without the all-time ranking. It isn't like anyone has an equal chance at reaching it. Who's to say new members won't be here for years or more?

    • Show All
    • Leave things be and give those who have been here longest the benefit of having been here longer... don't screw with my points :)

    • Haha, protecting your own interests. Can't hate on that. :)

  • What do you mean, adjusted?

    • Say they made 10,000 comments, they received 3 xper per comment, which comes out to 30,000 xper.

      According to the new rules it would only be 10,000 xper. Meaning the people who are ranked all-time have an unfair advantage because their scores are based on the old scoring system.

    • And by adjusted I mean change ALL xper scores accordingly.

    • There's no need for making Xper changes retroactive. That'd mean we could also take more points for rewards because those have now been raised, no one wants that... it'd get very messy.

  • Nah because that'd just be a big mess. I'd just consider it a bonus for being on the site and "grandfathering" the XP.

  • Meh, honestly I don't care. The point system is something that's probably always going to be fluid, and changes to it don't bother me.
