I'm relatively new here, and haven't had voting privileges for too long, but here's what I do:

What I usually do is log on sometime in the mid-morning and read all the new nodes I'm interested in. I give out ++ for helpfulness, cleverness, clarity, humor, and things that make me go "Wow". I like to give out ++ votes. I try to spend all my votes at once. I don't save any for later in the day, because I usually only read Perl Monks once a day for an hour or so. (I used to spend more time, but then I found myself not getting any work done :-)

I hate to give out -- votes. I would rather give out ++ votes. But I will downvote a node if I feel it's misleading, belittling, or a question that could easily be answered by RTFM. I think I might have given out one or two downvotes, ever. It's rare.

BTW, ++vladb. This is an interesting discussion. Thanks for bringing it up!

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.
