Occasionally, the gods find it fitting to set the faithful to a task: a Quest.
Each Quest is active for a limited time. This is usually fairly short — a few days or weeks — but sometimes a Quest lasts until the end of the epoch.
Quests are the gods' way of soliciting idea from the general populace for ideas for improving PerlMonks.
Therefore, Monks who contribute worthy suggestions are eligible to receive special dispensations of eXperience Points. However, a greater incentive is the fame and karma (let's call it "pharma") that naturally accrues to successful Questers .
misty is getting a dye-sublimation system which means there could be more varieties of PM merchandise in the future. She would take care of all the work and give PerlMonks a percentage of the sales. So now we need to give her designs to work with and or items you would be interested in getting.
I'm notoriously bad at coming up with new poll ideas. Help me out here please. You probably won't get awarded any extra XP even if this is a quest cuz that equals additional work for me. However, if I find your poll idea worthy I can add it to a pool of potential polls for the future. Then I just need to write a script and add it to my crontab.
