Thanks for the clear explanation. I think what I was trying to get at was that the site seems to promise to be much more than a discussion forum for help with Perl, but the level of "other forms of dialogue" seems to have been ebbing, when looking back at older nodes compared with current.
Maybe a bizarre analogy will help... Visiting PerlMonks is like visiting the house of an old, retired wizard. Lots of supplicants come by to ask questions, and for the most part they are answered. Sometimes they are disrespectful and are reprimanded. But if you look around the house, there are tomes, scrolls, trophies, magic items +5 and better, but all disused, sitting around gathering dust. It's as though the grand adventures are all over. Maybe I just joined during a slow phase, I don't know. Am I getting a wrong impression?
