Hmmm...turning perlmonks into an e-commerce site beyond the Offering Plate is iffy in my mind. I'm wondering if that's not best suited for some other site.

I'd much rather see a group gathering, live chat, teaching area which is for free. No signing up required- just stop by on Saturday at 4:00pm EST and....

For example, I feel that I have a firm grasp on Perl Curses. If someone doesn't have a specific question, but would rather "just learn to use Curses", I'd offer to go through some simple excercises and examples with explanations. Currently, folks like that are turned away with harsh RTFMs and such which put on the map of anti-newbie as suggested in a previous Meditation. So, I would announce that I would offer a Curses Colloquium at such-and-such a time- stop by if you'd like! This area might contain a live chat area where the lecturer has precedence and can filter content. This is so interesting, I just might do this on my own server. Thanks for the thinkjuice, tilly!

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.
