in thread Should there be a Perl Monks Award?

I think another difficulty is that a substantial portion of the "good" content out there is probably created by monks. So we have kind of a conflict of interest if we start handing out awards.

If merlyn writes a good article about Perl, as he has been known to do, and we all vote to give it an award, that's fine. But like I said, monks create a lot of good Perl-related material on the web. Over time, as every Perl article that a monk writes gets the PM Seal Of Approval, it starts to look like we created an award to give to ourselves.

    Well, that's kinda too much of an assumption IMVHO. Speaking of which I wonder how many monks also spend some time on other renown online Perl communities: I know some, but I only have a partial view of the thing. However as an issue it's OT here. But now that you make me think of it, it may constitute the subject of a poll suggestion. Whoa! The second in just few days...
