G'day flowdy,

Firstly, it's important to understand that moving and approving nodes are two entirely separate operations. They cannot be done together.

  • Whoever moved your post may not be the same person who approved it.
  • Whoever approved your post may not have known that it had been previously moved.

Here's what the Janitors' Guidelines say (in part) under "Moving posts":

"Note that you must never attempt to move and approve a node in the same step! Or even two steps!"

Armed with this information you can probably now answer the question for yourself:

  • Q. Would it be too hard ...?
  • A. It may be impossible.

Whenever I move a post, I normally /msg the OP to this effect: I do this as a courtesy; it is not a requirement. I never advise OPs of node approval.

Finally, please consider the wording, and hence the tone, of your questions. Something like "Would it be too hard for moderators ...?" rather suggests that you think that moderators are lazy. Of course, that may not have been your intent at all; however, to demonstate the point, consider this:

"Would it be too hard for you to post a link to the node you're commenting on?"

Compared to this:

"Please provide a link to the node you're commenting on."

Both convey much the same information, i.e. you've failed to tell us what post you're referring to; however, the former has a nasty undertone whilst the latter is a polite request.

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.
