It could just be the number of smart people here and any eager learner of Perl soon realizes that after landing here at the Monastery.
But that's probably not the real reason— I think it's the sense of community, as kiat points out. For instance, I frequent DevShed, simply because it covers more topics, but I've never felt it was a community. I credit the community at PM to things like:
- the Chatterbox
- home nodes
- scratch pads
- Monk stats
- XP system
- monastery metaphor
(I have some other reasons here)
Bottom line—my job would be a lot harder without the monks.
