Something that I could see being useful is a banner that
appears when you first log on as a new member urging you to
read nodes like Writeup formatting tips
and the like.
It wasn't immediately obvious to me when i started as a
perlmonk that the submissions were html, much less how one
went about formatting submissions properly and what things
like the square brackets do.
Maybe this would cut down on poorly formatted newbie posts
and the need to explain formatting while answering somebody's
question. Currently, newbies are expected to 'pull' the
docs, rather than getting 'pushed' the docs, or at least
being 'pushed' in the general direction of the docs.
Thoughts? Which paradigm (push or pull) is going to benefit
perlmonks in the long run?
