( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
A lot of new SOPWs are being rebuked with "This is a FAQ -- why are you asking before you search?" or simply being considered and eaten.
But for people who don't have the big perl brain on, some questions seem legitimate. It took me some time to get used to the network of resources, and time perusing the various docs that come with perl to understand how to use them. In the interest of treating new people with the velvet glove, rather than the iron fist, I suggest the following :
  • When a node is previewed, show a list of nodes with the exact same title.
  • Don't let people post nodes titled m/^(.*?)\bquestion/.
  • Especially if $1 m /^quick|^fast|^easy/.
Other suggestions?

In reply to Cut down on the FAQs, Jack, by searching for code before you post that node. BR(Serious Title : Searching for matching node titles reduces redundancy) by boo_radley

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.
