in thread Should I write your code ?

I agree, in principle. Sometimes, however, the code given as an example in such a case as you describe is riddled with myriad incorrect assumptions, out-and-out coding errors, misused idioms and common mistakes and is so far from my own coding style that after addressing all the above, there's no longer any question to answer.

My own approach to situations like this is sometimes to simply write a completely new code snippet which accomplishes what I estimate was the original goal, without so much as the slightest resemblance to the original, along with an explanation to the effect of, "here's how I might try to do this."

And sometimes (here on Perl Monks, anyway), I leave it to those more adept than I.

[Corion]: Mr. Muskrat: I'm not sure if it really happens more often, but I don't exactly know either
[LanX]: yep
[LanX]: more often for some weeks now
[Corion]: I think I'll have to manually (as god) intervene with that node, as the simple reparenting didn't seem to fix the parent/child relationship of the nodes
[Corion]: I think I have an idea but I'll have to open a ticket with Pair.com on that - hopefully I get to that on the weekend

[Mr. Muskrat]: Thank you!
[Mr. Muskrat]: Oh that is odd. I got the message that it was reparented but yeah, it didn't actually do it. lol
[Corion]: LanX: No, Co-Rion appears as Monkey God :-)
[Corion]: Mr. Muskrat: Yeah, that message is automatic when the "normal" reparenting is done, but I think some rows that make up the node were not added to the DB properly
