I sympathize. Many times I see a question I know I could answer (and thus advance on the road of Monkly Enlightenment), but The Usual Suspects have beaten me too it by a minute or so.

I also sympathize in that I don't spend all day watching to see if a new question has been poasted. It's not that one takes a long time in reading a post, it's that one may only look at Perl Monks two or three times a day.

Having said all that, though, I disagree with your proposal. The point in being here is to be helpful, not to be first. (Funny thing is, I considered posting something similar to this after I'd been here a few months...)

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.
