Proposal: About Perlmonks document

by artist (Parson)
on Nov 11, 2003 at 02:16 UTC ( #306043=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

When I go to other community site, I don't like the lack of the sections such as "About" or "FAQ". It simply wonders me that in the digital age and time why the introduction of these types are not easily available especially about digital media when there are many hard working people behind the things.

About Perlmonks could be an introduction to site, credits to the people/parties where it's due and could serve as a good showcase for the site. People get truly the idea of the site, explore the richness of the content and join in the mission of the site.

Update:: hossman covered my point.. Thanks..!!

    I'm wondering if artist has forgotten that users who are not logged in, see..

    If you're new here please read Perl Monks Site FAQ the top of The Monastery Gates when they first come to the site. Not to mention that there's an Information nodelet, containing links to "PerlMonks FAQ" and "Guide to the Monastery" among other things.

    (Every now and then people who have customized their user experience forget what the experience is like for new users. some stuff seems easier to find, other stuff seems harder. I think the concept of an "About Perlmonks" or "FAQ" page is pretty well covered for new visitors here.)

    About Perlmonks is the first section of the FAQ. Are you just suggesting that the link be renamed from the current "Need Help??" to something else?
