I talked about this quite a while back in another node that I'm too lazy to look up. Since I'm at work when I visit the Monostary, I rarely have a lot of time to spend, and so I rarely use my votes. Hence my being a Monk for around a year now.

I've found that I often use my votes (when I have time) in the Code sections. I love the idea of giving people feedback on code that they contribute, even if that feedback is simply an upvote pat on the back.

The other place that I like to spend votes is in the poetry and obfuscation sections. Whereas the coding section provides a functional set of tools for others to learn from and improve, the poetry and obfuscation sections are artistically based. And being a former theatre graduate, I like that.

Every now and again, I'll come across an exceptional node (or more often, and exceptional point made in a node), but those times are a lot more rare than the creativity in other sections.

But, then, if I'd been spending all my votes everyday, I'd be a little bit higher than a monk. But it's been, and continues to be, a great experience.

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