( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I've poured pored over all the Friar duties and responsibilities links (perhaps too many at once is my problem) and I find a conflict.

On one hand it says we don't correct spelling; on the other hand it says the titles are the key to long term usability of the site.

So what happens when a keyword for search is misspelled in the title?

I recently submitted what I think was my first NTC and I may have committed a social faux pas, in that I requested a spelling correction on node title.

Just looking to see if I should refrain from that particular activity in the future, given my confusion after reading conflicting guidance in the veritable sea of PerlMonks documentation. :-)

Update: Thanks to everyone who sent me private chat messages with s/poured/pored/. I was starting to think it was some kind of old PerlMonks insider joke or something, but after getting multiple identical messages, it finally dawned on me that I might have a typo in my post.

Context is everything. :-)


In reply to Guidance Requested: Spelling in Titles? by marinersk

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
