When I was new here, (not that long ago) I felt like I had been dumped into a D&D-like maze - passages leading everywhere and no idea which one to take. I suggest that the Monastery Gates have an obvious link to a "Site Tutorial" explaining the layout and function of the various sections. Appropriately, most of the tutorials here are aimed at gaining perl expertise, but newbies really need a "map" of this place to make the most of it.

    Are you thinking of a guide like Welcome to the Monastery! Make yourself at home.? If something else, then someone has to write the "map" of this place that you refer to. If you want it done, the most reliable way is to become that someone.

    Once the map is available, it is easier to get it moved to Tutorials and then possibly linked from other places.

      Yes, tilly, that's just about exctly what I was refering to! I wish I had seen that when I first arrived here. Is it possible (or even permitted) to put an obvious link to that node on the The Monastery Gates page? Perhaps a link something like Finding Your Way Around the Monastery and put it in the center right above the Donations gladly accepted link.

      Thanks for showing me the link.

        I'd suggest asking people in chatter, or posting a new Discussion, rather than burying your request in a long-dead thread where it is likely to be missed. (I am not in pmdev.)
