In which way is voting detrimental to the section?

Downvoting (which probably is what you're hinting at) is likely a double edged sword whose absence would be just as bad, in a different way, as its presence. I'm sure everyone will agree that we don't want the section to drown in a sea of trivialities, even though we do want a place for news of narrower magnitude than posts them.

My vote is to leave it alone for the time being. I believe we still need to find out just what it is we want out of the section. That won't happen without letting the section run for a while and observing whether develops in a satisfactory fashion. If we determine it has not after a while of observing it, we can then address the specific issues that have become apparent in the meantime, and discuss how to fix them.

Makeshifts last the longest.

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.
