( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help?? that I've had a chance to participate in the voting for some time, I find that I'm still not using any negative votes on most days.

I have discovered that I have time to race in here, read for about 20 minutes and grant an up vote to any nodes that I feel contribute to the information worth of the site.

I find that I'm not usually here for long enough to be stingy with my votes. I have about enough time to search for information that's interesting or useful to me, and read a few things serendipitously, and then I have to go.

I think that a useful extension to the voting system would be to allow a person to cast multiple votes for a node. We are given a finite number of votes each day, but it would be nice to spend them en masse for a really good (or really bad) node. Perhaps the scheme would still have to contain a built-in natural limit (such as a maximum of three or five votes for a given node).

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.
