( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

First of all aayers: thank you for contributing to CPAN, and please don't let anybody discourage you.

As the second point I'd like to thank you again for reacting on feedback, even if some of that wasn't formulated very friendly at all. That's not something you can take for granted.

I think you did well in responding on the review page.

On the ratings page of one of my modules I found that some ratings disappeared after a while (and after releasing a few new versions), so I don't think it's a doom hanging over your project for long.

Should I try to publicize my project a bit and try to get more reviews?

Yes. I recommend starting a small series of blog posts. You can join the Perl Iron Man, the RSS aggregator seems to have lots of readers in the Perl community (at least I got much more feedback on my posts after I joined it), and it's also worthy to get your blog listed on

Maybe you'll even find some new contributors to your project that way.

Perl 6 projects - links to (nearly) everything that is Perl 6.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
