in reply to Why does PerlMonks rock?

Maybe vroom used psychohistory to predict that the Informatic Empire was in the process of collapsing. To minimize the ensuing chaos, PerlMonks was created as a sort of "foundation" upon which a new empire would be built. The success of the site is practically guaranteed by the science of psychohistory... --Encyclopedia Informatica

Although we tend to minimize its importance, I think that XP is probably one of the major factors of the success of PerlMonks. (How many people log in every day just to vote in order to pick up a few more XP?) Maybe there are ways to make a site like this even more RPG like...

[Discipulus]: so every library (js) to sdelect and modify the id parameters can be good.
[Discipulus]: I never understood something: I can on the fly modify the XML structure of the SVG using for example XML::Twig ?
[Corion]: Discipulus: If you want to rewrite the SVG, then yes, something like XML::Twig should be enough. I would try to not modify the SVG but only modify the display, but so far I haven't convinced IE to change the style...
Corion gives up
[Discipulus]: ah! so you mean if i need a static image i can use Twig, if on the fly better css selector and mody attrs (jquery?), rigth?
[LanX]: not sure what you guys are taking about, but a DOM manipulation in JS shouldn't be difficult
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, that's what I would try (but so far, I can't even change the colors manually in the SVG, which is why I gave up ;) )
Discipulus bad sign..
