I've created a new editors group full of individuals I find worthy of the calling. These are people I feel I can trust and will take the responsibility seriously.

They'll have full edit permission to all writeups. Their editing will largely be doing things to make the site look prettier. Most of which will be getting rid of PRE tags, and adding CODE and READMORE tags as necessary. Most of the editors already point out these problems on the nodes to consider page. Now they'll be able to fix them. Other powers will include moving root nodes between sections, and removing items from view on the frontpage or a section page.

These powers will probably be arriving in the next few days when I get some time to sit down and code.

What about accountability for their actions? The truth is that if I thought I had to worry about the actions of any of the people in the editors group I wouldn't have chosen them. All of the chosen ones have demonstrated a good mix of the following:

  • High level (they've spent enough time and energy here to destroy their playground)
  • Offered help with site operations. This could come in helping with nodes to consider, /msging me with good ideas, good ideas in Perl Monks Discussion, or a variety of different places
  • Offering wisdom, and evenhanded approaches for dealing with the social problems that pop up in the monastery from time to time.

    The editors and I would welcome hearing what you think of the new approach to handling some of the daily drudgery around here. Discuss below.

    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.
