So hey, can we get some new topic areas, and improve some of the ones that we have? I'd like to see Perl News revived so that actual news can go there again... the automated feed has long since faded and often what is news is being passed off as a meditation. Maybe along those lines we could have an "off-topic" topic so that you have at least one topic where your post can't be downvoted for being off-topic? Also, I realize that there's some cruft that may be difficult to work with, but the redundant code sections seems a little odd... the essential question is one-liner snippety things versus working code. And last, and also likely least, how about combining the poetry and obfuscation sections and throwing in a bit of golf, calling the new topic something like "Perl at its [be|wor]st". Okay, just wanted to generate some discussion. Also interested in the opinions of the pm-dev team as to whether this is hard, not-so-hard-but-hardly-worth-it, trivial. That way us earthbound users know whether carping will be effective. ;)

In reply to Topic Sections Considered Harmful? by ichimunki

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
