It may just be me, but I have been here at the monastery for only about a month now, but I have learned a lot since I have been here, and have noticed something that seems to happen a lot in the Perl Monks Discussion area. And that is, discussions where an experienced Perl hacker here posts some type of discussion topic along the lines of: "Has anyone noticed that lately, all the newbies are asking dumb and vague questions and should know how to ask 'correct' questions related to Perl now?" or even "Maybe it's me, but it seems like alot of posts to SoPW have been vague and/or ambiguous. -- Tuna
Now these aren't really a bad thing to discuss... but when it happens over and over of people discussing how newbies need to figure out how to read instructions and stuff here at the monastery, it gets very annoying to read it over and over, so in this discussion, I am simply suggesting that there could be a big section for newbies especially where they can find out where to post items of their concern, etc. Yes, I know that there is the FAQ page related to how to know where to post various questions and so on, but it seems like newbies don't know to check there... even though it and other people say to read it. I think there should be a section in the future titled something along the lines of 'newbies area' where they can learn the basics of Perl and PerlMonks.org. I don't know if this is another annoying post, but I hope it is something that is important enough to discuss!
Please write your thoughts on this subject if you have any relevant ideas/suggestions/criticisms/etc. ^_^
