( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm coming in late, as I was offline during the holidays... It seems to me that posts about XP may end up going negative. I am too lazy to back this up with data. My making this comment seems to reinforce this point, as I felt inclined to downvote you, and then in a fit of perversity, voted you up. Go figure. My posting here won't help my XP.

That said, I found out about this thread in "Recently Active Threads", not the front page. Your post isn't about PM, it's about XP. You are doomed as long as you focus on your own XP, or other monk's XP, instead of the real focus of this site: a support network for perl people.

I have asked stupid questions here, and received helpful answers. I have posted unhelpful answers by not thinking clearly, and have regretted them and revised them to indicate my error. I come here often, and learn new things. As my other brothers and sisters have pointed out, a response that seems unhelpful to you may be just what I needed. Don't try to judge the whole site's content according to your own experience. perlmonks works because of the diversity of the members, not because of the authority (or XP) of any one member.

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.
