( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have setup a pseudo-clone of perlmonks at work for work related issues and discussions for our company and we were running into a similar quandary over the issue of non-work-related or OT discussions in the sections

After much deliberation, we finally came to the conclusion that since we were trying to build a virtual community for our folks to share ideas, those people needed a virtual 'watercooler section' to discuss the off topic stuff just as they would in the real world breakrooms

Since implementing this we have actually lowered the number of "don't post that OT 'stuff'" complaint posts as there is now a good place for them to post such and those that wish to ignore the same can do so easily by ignoring that section.

I am not suggesting we achieved world peace, but the users seem satisfied on both sides of the OT isle.

Title:
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.
