Could you please explain why some off-topic posts are still approved such as (OT) Your Dream OS
, (OT) Experiences with Netbooks
, (OT) Issue in chrome
, and (OT) Issue in chrome
while others are not? Or (OT) Listing / Inquiring on MQ Cluster Queues
, which you
approved. Sure seems like an inconsistently enforced policy. Or, are we maybe trying for that "editing on Wikipedia" feel that's all the rage
(pun intended) these days? ;) Oh well, I guess we're back to the non-starter "we should have an Off Topic section" :(
Update: from one past discussion: Re: An OT section (again).
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! —
Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
- a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
