Grab a selection of your favorite beer|wine|pop|soda|water|beverage of choice, sit down at your browser, and enjoy!

Take one sip when:

  • Someone asks a question in a section other than Seekers of Perl Wisdom or Q&A
  • Someone asks a question in Q&A that should be in Seekers of Perl Wisdom
  • Someone asks a question with a vague title
  • Someone advances to novice, acolyte, scribe, or monk
  • Someone asks a completely non-perl related question.
  • Meryln replies with a pointer to his columns
  • Someone asks a question already in the FAQ
  • Someone doesn't use CODE tags
  • Someone asks a homework question
  • A reply to a node either states "use strict", "-w", or "you could have found that with Super Search".

Take one chug when:

  • Someone donates to kudra's World Domination Fund
  • Nodereaper reaps a node
  • Someone advances to friar, abbot, bishop, or pontiff
  • Someone starts mass-downvoting everyone
  • Vroom posts
  • Someone has a question about their own homemade
  • Someone complains that they cannot install a module
  • Someone compares Perl to Java|Python|C|C++|C#|any other langauge
  • There are more than 50 Other Users
  • There are no Other Users
  • Someone other than Erudil posts an ObFu
  • Someone posts a JAPH
  • You see a new sponser in the ad banner
  • Someone asks a question, stating that they're new to perl but their job requires them to get this done within a limited time frame

Down a can when:

  • Someone becomes a saint
  • Erudil posts a new ObFu
  • Someone posts a Tutorial or Review
  • Vroom posts with a non-site related node
  • A node gets more that -20 reputation before being reaped
  • Someone posts Perl Poerty that actually compiles with use strict; and -w
  • A saint completely blows an answer to a question
  • Vroom issues a Quest

Down the entire case when:

  • Larry Wall posts

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.
