in thread Perl Monks Birthday?

The site has become pretty antiquated in its look and feel.

Perlmonks is retro. Retro is cool. Please don't change a thing! (But feel free to clean up that section list at the top anytime :)

    Could you please elaborate on that.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

      It's the only thing that bugs me about Perlmonk's otherwise perfect utilitarian design (vroom++). I think pipes are problematic separators there because capitalized text has a lot of vertical lines, so it looks cluttered, compared to something like bullet points:

        Log in • Create a new user • The Monastery Gates • Super Search • Seekers of Perl Wisdom • Meditations • PerlMonks Discussion • Obfuscation • Reviews • Cool Uses For Perl • Perl News • Q&A • Tutorials • Poetry • Recent Threads • Newest Nodes • Donate • What's New

      • When the line breaks are removed the menu wraps smoothly (as shown here).

      • Turning off text-decoration (underline) on links would clean up the menu and modernize the look of the entire site.

      • Maybe integrate the monkquip with the blue page header. I think it wants to be under "PerlMonks" or over the search box or in its own blue <tr>.

      • Need Help?? One question mark.

      Thanks for all you do, and keep up the good work on Perlmonks!

        pipes are problematic separators ... compared to something like bullet points

        Fair enough. This will require modifying CSS in a static file, so will take some time.

        When the line breaks are removed the menu wraps smoothly

        Done. Feedback requested. :-)

        Turning off text-decoration (underline) on links ...

        I don't know about that. We need to make accessibility a priority. I would want any change to ameliorate it, or at least not pejorate it. :-D

        integrate the monkquip with the blue page header

        Maybe.

        Need Help?? One question mark

        It's been that way since the beginning, and I think falls into the category of "fun, quirky stuff that makes PerlMonks distinctive".

        Thank you for your suggestions!
