Last week, I posted my first writeup here. I've been a member since the beginning of the month but hadn't really used the site until very recently.

A few days afterwards, I approached St. vroom on IRC and brazenly asked how he would feel if I hacked together some changes for different areas of the site for him to check out. (Okay, so maybe those weren't the exact words I used, but you get the idea) I expressed to him that I felt there were some things at the site that could be improved upon and that I'd like to take a shot at it. Rather than brush me off for being the ignorant and naive adolescent I am, he said he'd be interested in seeing a list of things I see that I would change. I told him to expect an email in a few days, and we left it at that.

**notes the mouse cursors headed straight for the -- radio button** but wait, there's more! :)

After spending another day or two surfing the site, reading and responding to writeups, posting perl poetry (grin), I've come to the conclusion that the quirks in the site really do make it enjoyable to learn and use. Something that jcwren had mentioned to me before; the longer you spend figuring out something like this site, the more apt you are to becoming addic--er, good at using it. Kind of like Perl itself. :) Many aspects of the user interface can be altered, and once you get used to things like 'stumbit' and the voting process, it's not bad at all. As a matter of fact, I can't even remember the things that were bothering me last week!

So I guess what I am trying to say is this: please forgive my foolishness, vroom, and indeed everyone on #perlmonks. This place rocks and I enjoy it the way it is.

Your humble acolyte,

Alakaboo

    I like the site like it is. Don't see the need to change things. I read many threads were people wanted to change things to the site because they felt there were things they needed to see changed.

    This doesn't mean I'm a conservative, but I feel the site does just the right thing on the right way. See the succes in member growth and not only registering members but also in actually active participating members.
    In stead of trying to program things for the site, what this site actuall needs is people asking/answering questions, writing tutorials helping to get a nice content to the site.

    Off course these are my opinions...

    My opinions may have changed,
    but not the fact that I am right

      I generally say that anything can be improved upon, and this site is almost always growing. Not exactly "changing" but evolving and it does so at an incredible rate.
      Update: I'm not sure why this post got --'d but hey thats life.
      Nobody expects the The Spanish Inquisition
