I'm happy The Monastery
has stayed simple over the years. It seems like every time I turn around, one of my favorite websites has mirrored TMZ
into eye-candy-land, which includes dumping the content.
Perl Monks is as fancy or as simple as you want to make it, for the most part. I make good use of the personal nodelet, and sprinkle in a bit of CSS.
If there's something you want to change, bring it up in a discussion. While it seems most suggestions are not followed up either for lack of tuits, or the added server load, some are, and you might be surprised at which suggestions do get in. Even better, make your own solution -- you might learn something about this site and hacking in general.
I keep coming back here for the content. I probably have my current $job because of the time I've spent here soaking up ideas, playing with things, and yes, even asking questions and getting a variety of good answers. (Even the occasional "WTF?" has been helpful.)
If you want pretty, tittilating, and "you have to read this" headlines, try TMZ or The Sun or even HuffPost (sorry HP, you drank the Kool-Aid too).
