everything v. perlmonks

I may be installing The Everything System soon for an intranet type site. The Everything Engine is absolutly incredible, and AFAIK, perlmonks has even added upon its greatness with extra options, user settings, and features.

What features does perlmonks have that are not implemented in the Everything Engine?

Are there any features that monks here have developed that have made it back into the core of the Everything Engine?

So, is perlmonks superior to the Everything Engine?

    I think the nicer message inbox, the consideration system, and the edev patching system haven't been ported to the latest version of Everything. Most everything else is available.

    The biggest advantage of the current version of Everything is that it's current — it's documented, increasingly better tested, and, lately, getting faster all the time.

      There exists eMessage, perhaps you've heard of it? It's very very nice :)(screen shot)

    Okay, I'm no pmdev, or anything of the sort, and I can't even begin imagine how much the fine folks here have hacked Everything Engine. However, I have Everything installed and am using it for my personal site. From my experience with this, I can tell you that the 'base' for just about everything on perlmonks( chatterbox, threading system, voting ), is available for your everyday, run-of-the-mill Everything system. The beauty of it is that everything on Everything is hackable, leaving it wide open for development like perlmonks, everything2, etc.

    So, to answer your question, I'd say that the Everything code running perlmonks, is good for perlmonks, but probably nothing like Everything. :)

    A conclusion is simply the place where someone got tired of thinking.

    I was told previously by one of the saints in pmdev that perlmonks and Everything are substantially different now, and that the code that makes up the goodness of pm is not available for public consumption. :(
