I swear to Celestia, I've been trying to figure this out but there's no logical conclusion (at least for me). How is experience calculated, I need my epeenpoints.

over time, though the more posts you make, the faster you get some.

If you can understand php, the code for experience is in lib/functions.php at https://github.com/Xkeeper0/jul

Originally posted by 2Tie Yes, but members that have less posts than me have more EXP. By what I understand by quickly skimming function.php, the more posts you make in a day, the more xp you get.

Basically, EXP = posts × ( posts × days )^{½}

Mm, yes, that does display it pretty well.
It tends to end up scaling pretty directly to post count in the end, there's only a few cases of ancientness outperforming posts...

So, I've learnt the lesson the "medium" way. In any case I'm not an user that is able to write a long post about something, so my posts usually tend to be quite short too.
