in reply to Pretify the site with CSS?

... and, from the point-of-view of PM as an information resource as “the Go-To Site” for Perl on the Internet (which I consider that it largely is) then CSS niceities really do not matter much.   Sometimes, a very simple markup really is the best.   I would much rather see improvements in the classification/points system, tagging or other means of adding taxonomy, and so-forth, because IMHO those would significantly improve the value of PM as an information resource.

Some of the visual aspects of the site are klunky ... some are downright strange.   But people do not come to PM for how it looks.

    Regardless of your opinions about improving the look and feel, using CSS you can have a theme which is slightly different when you are logged in, compared to an anonymous user. You may find this useful since you alone so often exhibit the inability to notice such things, despite being a user here for many years, and despite the site telling you that you're not logged in when posting. You're clearly not interested in resolving the issue for yourself or anyone else, since this has been mentioned to you previously.

      As I have patiently said before, please keep the interactions on this site impersonal.   We are talking about the site ... not you, and not me, and not your opinions of me.   All that I am saying is that CSS “prettying” is not a particularly high priority for lil’ ol’ me.   The site is quirky, some might say ugly (and, some might not), but who cares:   it succeeds in its core mission, and it has done so for many years.

      If you have a question about the Perl programming language and you want to get a fantastic answer now, is (IMHO) the place on the Internet to do that.   Heads and shoulders above all others in terms of information content.   Somewhat dicey (at times) in terms of the inter-personal politics.

        You claim problems, fall foul of posting when logged out, I offer a failsafe. You claim you have no time for this. To change CSS settings would take a few seconds of your time, but you seem to think that meaningless responses such as this are a better use of your time. This is personal only in that it addresses what you repeatedly claim (but have never proven) to happen. Since you claim to be interested in seeing improvements in other areas will you be offering to make those changes?
