As one of the principals in a CB discusion that erupted over "Religion in the Monastery." being moved, I feel compelled to post a reply...   ahem...   Well said, tye.

I had developed the opinion that Perl Monks Discussion was for discussing framework facets of PM as a site (voting, experience, markup, etc.).   Barring any supporting posts in this thread that are as sensible, well-researched, and eloquent as "Are "PM Discussions" only to be technical?", my thinking will doubtless be swayed to agreement with brer tye.

As for updating "Where should I post X?", that sounds like a swell idea - go for it!

  striving toward Perl Adept
  (it's pronounced "why-bick")

Update/Clarification: my original thinking was the opposite of what tye says above.   In light of his compelling and clear arguments, I now agree with him that posts primarily about social aspects of the Monastery would generally be best posted to Perl Monks Discussion, along with posts on mechanical facets of this site.

Two benefits come to mind for as-consistant-as-is-reasonably-practical placement of nodes within sections:
  A - facilitates more effective topical searches in the future
  II - provides a more consistant and grok-able user interface for monks both new and old.
Clear & public recommendations/guidelines for best-practice node placement would seem to be a big part of this.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
