I just noticed that my experience (ex: Marauder 11,023 / 18,000 with a progress bar underneath it) has the first number 11,023 in yellow and the 18,000 is normal white. I also noticed that during the leve I was doing after I beat mobs it would say "You've earned 123 experience" AND "Your axe skill bonus increases." It said this after multiple mobs each time.

Any idea what this means? When I change to another job it turns white and I've seen my fisrt expereince number be green before. I'm not getting a surplus message (bonus wouldn't be surplus would it?).

I wondered what my green numbers meant.

Are they seriously calling it "bonus xp" though? That's even worse of a name than "surplus". Why not just call it what it is, "penalty xp"

Mikhalia: Sounds about right.

What players said:
"I think the surplus system is silly."

What SE heard:
"I think the name 'surplus system' sounds silly."

What SE responded with: "Hey guys, we're not calling it surplus anymore. Now it's Bonus Experience Points!"

Apparently changing the name is supposed to make it [seem] better. SE's little Book of Things to Help You Suck Less doesn't have any of that silly logic to get in the way of critical decision making.
