I first heard of the Perl Monks after the first YAPC, where the site was mentionned as a sponsor and a strong community.
I started lurking every now and then on the site about a year ago before registering in April, lurking some more, then eventually posting on my favorite topic (XML of course) and being biten by the XP bug. I have been posting regularly since then...
I think YAPC is the perfect place for Perl Monks to be.
Beyond that I first thought that the XP system was just a
gimmick, but as I started posting, then voting, I realized
it plays a major role on the site:
So Thanks PM, thanks vroom and thanks to all the saints, monks, initiates and Anonymous Monks that make me hit the reload button every 30 seconds when I get a chance! (BTW, idea for a poll: "how many times a minute do you hit the reload button")
Update: hey! by the way, this was my 100 posts, cool! Now on my way to merlyn's score!
