RFC: Review of "Seekers of Perl Wisdom" description?by i5513 (Monk)
|on Apr 08, 2012 at 20:16 UTC||Need Help??|
While I was browsing the monastery, I found my last comment (basically a reply which says, "please search in internet before posting") with negative reputation.
My first impression was "waw! what did I wrong??"
Now reading "Seekers of Perl Wisdom" description, I understand it. Description does not invite to do any research before posting the question, so some monks sees my reply with wrong eyes (or maybe there are other issues which I possibly missed?)
What I'm proposing here is updating the description. I can understand that search engine wasn't very powerful when Perlmonks started. But now it is another history.
So I think monastery could replace this part of the description (of course if other monks agree and there is a consensus):Original:
/If you have a question on how to do something in Perl/ ...Modified (or somethink like it):
$& ,and you did not find the reply to your question in a fast search in Internet, perldoc, or supersearch ...
What do you think about?Thank you!
