May I post a job ad?

No. PerlMonks is not to be used as a job board.

Job postings (either offering or looking for) should be posted to, which exists specifically for this purpose.

And if your "job" posting isn't appropriate for, then it is even less appropriate at PerlMonks.

However, monks should feel free to use their home nodes for this kind of advertisement.

There are several good reasons for not supporting the posting of job ads here, including:

  1. Postings on PerlMonks have a permanent character, whereas job ads are ephemeral.
  2. PerlMonks already has a well defined focus; this should not be altered. (If the Perl community did not already have an outstanding resource for job ads, then it might be appropriate to consider doing it at PerlMonks. As it is, it's not something we need worry about.)
  3. If we did change the scope of PerlMonks to include job ads, we'd probably have to have even stricter rules than on what kinds of posts are acceptable; so there really would be nothing to be gained.

[Corion]: ambrus: No, you're misunderstanding. If you place content too far on the left/right/top/ bottom, people might not see it because the view is obstructed ;)(
[Corion]: In Amsterdam, the screen went down to the bottom of the stage (60cm above ground) and the seating was on the ground, meaning that the rows in the back couldn't see the bottom of slides.
[Corion]: There also were some columns that meant that maybe you couldn't see the left/right edge of a slide.
[ambrus]: Corion: Sure. I've had a course in a 50 seat lecture hall that has two fucking columns in the middle.
[Corion]: Talking about it, the top should be fairly visible in the situations I've experienced at least. The top is uncomfortable for people in the first three rows, but that's life ;)
[ambrus]: The pillars are there because this is in the 6th floor of building R of BME, which is an attic that was built in after the original building, which is also why the elevator doesn't go that high and the windows are tiny.
[Corion]: ambrus: Hehe ;) Yeah - such real life stuff is far more inconveniencing than wasting display area due to screen ratio problems :)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, it's a bit tricky. you can try to adjust the slides live to cover only a part of the screen, but it's still hard.
[ambrus]: Corion: two very hard things about presentations I should try to work on if I have twenty times as much free time as in real life are:
[Corion]: That's why I like HTML - it makes it relatively easy to resize stuff. Resizing with Powerpoint is much harder, or at least, I remember it being that way
