Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Stack Overflow is a good RPG so far with so-called reputation (which I easily decrypted as being xp). But it can become a great RPG. It needs more emphasis every time you make a level. And there should be a few more levels. For example, split the 100 rep level into two levels.

And there should be titles along with each level: Beginner, Helper, Communist, Nerd, Full Grown Geek, Young Jeff Atwood, Young Edsger Dijkstra, and finally: Q.

Personally I want 16 charisma and 18 intel. And 7 strength as every other geek...

I think you mean Jon Skeet, not Q. – Brad Gilbert Aug 18 '09 at 0:11
No .. Jon Skeet is the highest level. – Tyler Carter Aug 18 '09 at 0:14
Silence must be new here. – TheTXI Aug 18 '09 at 0:16
Why must I be new ? I recognize the Jon Skeet. I just think the Q should follow in the logical order of things. – Philippe Carriere Aug 18 '09 at 0:18
No .. Jon Skeet is beyond logic. He supercedes Logic. – Tyler Carter Aug 18 '09 at 0:19

"And 7 strength as ever other geek..." Speak for yourself. Some of us are jocks in our spare time. – dmckee Aug 18 '09 at 0:29
-1 this question is just silly. and it's not a question. and the comments are even sillier – Steven A. Lowe Aug 18 '09 at 2:14
Someone needs to cast Ultima on this question and put it out of its misery. ;) – gnostradamus Aug 18 '09 at 4:39
Sure, let's have some fun! – Shadow Wizard Mar 11 '15 at 9:34
@TylerCarter The only one begin that can really claim to be worthy to be after Q is Pinkie. Now that is what I would call "supercedes logic" – SPArchaeologist Mar 12 '15 at 13:30

Although I like the game aspects of it, the more and more you try and make it a game, the more and more people are going to treat it like a game, and that isn't always an ideal situation.

You could put a Game Interface on it Greasemonkey. That would be interesting. – Tyler Carter Aug 18 '09 at 0:07

There are always people trying to game the system.

Why should we encourage this behaviour?

Yes the game aspect does promote continued activity, but we don't want it to be just another game on the Internet.
