  • Under Consideration
have the ability to specify XP degradation for a chore as a number of points over a period of time, e.g. 1pt/day or 5pts/week or 2pts/3 days etc.

The opposite of this has already been suggested (that chores become more valuable over time) - if it's implemented, I'll make sure to include options for both directions.

it was the opposite suggestion that inspired this idea. Suppose I just could have added a comment on that suggestion...

Eventually they will become valueless and nobody will bother with them. The positive approach is better (though of course they shouldn't increase in value indefinitely). As the value increases there will be a risk that someone else will grab them first so the strategy of always leaving them as late as possible won't work.
