( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
i said this ages ago, and i'll say it again:
nevermind the XP, remember the experience.
only vote on what's worth it. a 'wasted' vote is a non-vote on a node that deserves a vote. a vote isn't wasted if there's nothing worth voting on.

i've also commented on the idea that votes are 'wasted' on Anonymous Monks. people believe that nobody is getting xp for the vote they submitted, so they hold back. this is bad for the community, because anonymous posts can contain good information that might never make it to Best Nodes because it was posted anonymously.

don't vote on people, vote on nodes. vote on ideas. vote on code.

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.
