Priority vs Points Assigned

Just wondering what is the mechanism/purpose behind the recently updates of "Priority" ?

It seems that the asker can assigning the Priority. But how would this affecting the Priority in actual case? like sorting of question list, etc? or just affecting the points that will be awarded to experts?

Nope.  They replaced the grade multiplier with priority.

I like this new priority method, for some reason it kills my wish to answer questions.

May I post here?

There are fewer questions right now, and I try to pick a multiplier 3 question for every multiplier 1 question that I answer.

So after a very rocky start on July 31, I am averaging 1,275 points per answer Aug 1 to now and 1,262 points per answer since Oct 18, 2008.

So in fairness to EE, it appears to be coming out the same.

Nonetheless, I still feel devalued as an Expert as Askers are given ever higher priority and preference in here.
