in thread Process for Site Improvement

I was looking up the process to join a group - I have a strong interest in joining pmdev - and was wondering about the specifics. Do I /msg gods or msg a particular individual?

Update: Incidentally, the directions at What are PerlMonks Orders? are clear enough. I just need to trust the English language a little more.

    Update I see you linked to that in your node now. Sorry to reiterate. Asking a member of the group for advice on joining before messaging a whole might not be necessary, but it would be polite and possibly helpful.

    Please see What are PerlMonks Orders? for more information about the orders and how to go about applying.

      My position has long been that I won't add somebody to a privileged group unless they have somebody active from that group (and gods belong to all groups) who agrees to mentor them (along with the documented requirements). In the case of pmdev, I guess I'll have to define "active" very loosely since jdporter can't mentor everybody. :)

      Anyone interested in joining pmdev should demonstrate an eagerness for tedium and frustration by actually finding old discussions about how the work of pmdev is done.

      - tye        

        I've been coding professionally for 11 years so far. That says nothing about skill or talent, but it does indicate an unhealthy tolerance for tedium and frustration.
