in reply to Is "Tidings: What's New at PerlMonks" Obsolete?

while "constantly improving the appearance and functions of PerlMonks" is certainly true, reporting such via Tidings is not.

I rarely see any updates; the last was 16-Jul-21.

it seems many [changes] occur without notification in this node.

What other recent changes do you think are Tidings worthy? I did a quick skim over all the PMDs since 2021-07-16 and didn't see anything I'd call Tidings worthy...

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon staffed with 16,000 zombies.

    "What other recent changes do you think are Tidings worthy?"

    There may be a disconnect between what I and others consider "worthy". While I'm happy to accept that, perhaps some change to the opening paragraph of Tidings would clarify the situation: a simple modification along the lines of s/change/major change/ might be all that's needed.

    It's also possible that some changes may be in an experimental or work-in-progress state which would make them inappropriate.

    I haven't kept a list of what I consider to be missing; however, a Super Search has found:

    While I would consider that to be a non-exhaustive list, it does highlight at least three items that could bear revisiting (and perhaps further action).

      Thanks. What I'm asking for is a concrete list of specific changes that you think should have been announced in Tidings.

      To address your points:

      • "Notification of updates to "Tidings"" (Nov. 2016)
        This is a discussion of Tidings notifications and how we might make them more prominent, so, not really apropos to my request.
      • "Re^6: New posts added earlier in posted list" (Jan. 2021)
        "Supplications in the Monastery Gates; layout in Nodes to Consider..." I'm afraid those are too vague to be actionable. I don't even know what "Supplications in the Monastery Gates" is supposed to mean; the Gates has always had a Seekers of Perl Wisdom section...🤷
      • "Invalid ID in reply notification" (Dec. 2021)
        I was never able to identify a cause. In any case, a random glitch causing a node to disappear is not something we'd announce in Tidings! Nor even a fix to such a bug, unless the bug were well-known and affected more than few users.

      Now please do me a favor and stop saying Tidings is disused/obsolete. Corion and I both update it as we deem necessary. If you or any monk knows of a change which you think could be Tidings worthy, feel free to /msg gods or post in PMD, and we can discuss it. Thank you.

      I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon staffed with 16,000 zombies.

        My problem is that I've always liked you; at least, until recently. Since you ascended to godhood (the ineffably resplendent form called erzuuli) you have treated me nastily (for instance, that noisome instance of messing with my XP — it's unknown what joy or satisfaction you got from that).

        "Now please do me a favor and stop saying Tidings is disused/obsolete."

        That is a complete confection by yourself; I beieive you to be intelligent enough to know this. I did ask the question "is [it] obsolete?"; I never made the statement "[it] is obsolete.". The word "disused" appears nowhere in this thread until you wrote it.

        "I don't even know what "Supplications in the Monastery Gates" is supposed to mean"

        Please review your own post "Re: Monastery gates typo and title change"; in particular,
        'I also renamed the SoPW section as "Supplications" ...'

        In that thread there are other changes that I would have considered "tidings"-worthy. If this is not the case, please explain why (not just to me, but in the introduction to the page).

        — Ken
