in thread Code Review section, anyone?

Okay, let me see if I understand completely:

You want a section that is different from Seekers of Perl Wisdom in that:

  1. It is explicitly for reviewing working code
  2. The posters are aware that the code is there to be reviewed
  3. Replies can be private
If this is indeed what you want, I would overall have no problem with it, except:
  1. I see no reason for private feedback. PerlMonks is about sharing learning, and this could be an excellent learning opportunity for more than the poster
  2. This would be best accomplished by revising the Code Catacombs section. As it stands, there is no real distinction made between Code Catacombs, Craft, and Snippets. Rather than adding a new section, I would modify one of those existing ones.
If I am now understanding your wishes, and with the above comments, I think this is a great idea. You mentioned something in the chatterbox yesterday about what you considered good/bad usage of the ? : construction during a code-review, and I found it interesting. Where I work I'm the only Perl programmer, and there is nothing resembling a code review. My only reason for writing good code is that I have to maintain it, and my only means of learning new tricks is reading books and PerlMonks. I know I would benefit from code review, and I imagine others would too.

All of this is IMNSHO, of course.
