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..!!
