Why is PerlMonks not mentioned on the new Learn Perl Site

Sorry if this isn't the right place to post this.

I noticed that the Learn Perl section of perl.org has been reworked and relaunched recently. I was surprised to see that under the "Where will I find an answer?" PerlMonks is not listed as a resource. The page lists StackOverflow, blogs.perl.org and, oddly, a few of the news sites as places to get answers about Perl.

PerlMonks is still listed under 'Community' on the, I guess now, older part of the main perl.org site but I'm a little confused why 'they' decided not to list a site that's been helping people learn Perl for ??? years.

    Thank you for pointing this out!

    I suspect that it is just an oversight.

    I have submitted a pull request, mentioning your node, and including a change to add PerlMonks to FAQ and to the "Related sites" sidebar.

    I thought it would be helpful to include the link to the Community page, which you were referring to. At first I thought you confused the "Perl Mongers Group" (pm.org) with "Perl Monks" (perlmonks.org).

    Also, their "Related Sites" points to perlmonks.com instead of perlmonks.org, which I'm not sure it should.

      Note also that PerlMonks, the site/community, is canonically written "PerlMonks", not "Perl Monks". (Not that it matters, really...)

    The same reason you dont' go to reddit.com/r/perl for too much. There's some serious people, a lot of people who are new and not much else.

    If you want a small community, perlmonks and digg are awesome (now-a-days). want big and anything else, go elsewhere.

      Rude and non-informative response, I agree. The aggregated content is valuable. The current performance of the website , its engine, and possibly the web interface is open to these questions.
