I think a good way to pick out the "actively involved" perl monks would be to use your XP system. Perhaps initiates and novices would not be able to see the section at all, acolytes and scribes could read but not post, and monks and up can post. I think this will encourage people to log in and contribute to the perl knowledge base before diverging into different interests.

in thread perlmonks.org: More than just a Perl resource?
Besides, it looks like we're getting quite a number of monks and above around here.
