I suggest that we try as much as possible to work by consensus ... if such a thing can be had ... because, even though there are a lot of “visual clods” in it (including silly-stuff, like the fact that the pictures in the top-of-screen rotation have no anti-aliasing thus “jaggies”), and some things that I wish would be changed (like Anonymous Monk and the content-evaluation system), there are many things about the site that do still work admirably well. I would like for there to be continue to be o-n-e “goto site about Perl,” and for this site to continue to be “it.” Although the site is admittedly ugly, it is functional and it contains many years’s worth of a cornucopia of information. That’s what’s important – vital – about PerlMonks, not so much its irritating warts and ugly looks. A “fork” never quite turns out right despite best intentions.
