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

I guess I don't see the problem. ): I don't notice myself wasting a lot of time jumping to nodes that frustrate me because they are just corrections or thank-yous.

I do agree that /msg is a better way to point out typos and just updating a node is a better way to fix many minor mistakes. But mistakes that seem likely to cause some readers of the post to come to incorrect conclusions might be better updated via a reply so the previous readers are more likely to see the update.

I also enjoy the "thank you" nodes that mention which solution the person chose and how well it worked for them. I could certainly do without the "empty" thank-you nodes but my suggestion would not be to turn them into /msg's but to add more information to them.

So I mostly agree. :)

Title:
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.
