( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

We already had various discussions in the past that Saints in our Book and Selected Best Nodes are biased to the early millennium because of the deflation of votes.

See Deflation and "Selected Best Nodes"

I'd like to provide and code a "yearly saints" page and more relevant selected nodes.

I think it's beneficial to motivate new monks instead of making them stare at some unreachable "alte kakers" who haven't been here for a decade or keep bragging about their past achievements.

  • One approach for nodes would be multiplying corrective weight per month calculated by the total number of cast votes.
  • Another having an additional saints list for the last x years only.
Other suggestions?

PS: to make it clear, this is not about me.

I'd pay money for restricting my online time here.


) there seems to be a misunderstanding that I want to disable the old pages/mechanisms. That's not the case, I want to extend them with more choice. For instance is "saints" already linking to two other statistics.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
