in reply to A PerlMonks 'Community' section?

Well, I agree in principle with your idea ( ++ ). I had a similar one not long ago. My fear is that we become /. or its ilk. I would like to see a clear policy on OT postings, regardless of maintaining the status quo or adding a 'Community' section - or even directing folks off-site somewhere.

Also, we may open the Monastery up to intense flammage and trolls. Vigilance on the Nodes to consider would have to increase. The stress on the Editors may have to be delegated.

But, I dunno ... maybe I'm just paranoid ... and overdosing on news and opinion.

[LanX]: before digging into deep debugging ... I have a strange UTF8 problem, probably it rings a bell:
[LanX]: two utf8 strings from different sources are base64 encoded, but after joining both the umlauts in teh second get deleted
[Corion]: LanX: You can't just join two base64 strings together
[LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
[Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
[LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
[Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
