in reply to PerlMonks as Ambassadors

Having read everyone else here, I've had a thought. Why not put the following in front of every submit box on question pages for user's whose experience is (say) under 100, or if they are anonymous?

(_)I have looked for my answer in Super Search
(_)I have tried to find my answer in the Library
I am a Perl (_)Newbie (_)Beginner (_)Adept

That way, the answer could automatically get stuck in a Newbie section if they select that they are a Newbie or Beginner. And if they don't check the first 2 boxes, they get a warning that they can still submit, but that their post will get sent to Purgatory (a new node, perhaps?).

Also, we could add a flag to all users that could be set to prompt other users if they consistantly ask RTFM/homework questions, whatever their XP.

Thoughts?

    I second the motion. Sounds like a great idea.

    $PM = "Perl Monk's";
    $MCF = "Most Clueless Friar Abbot";
    $nysus = $PM . $MCF;

[marto]: Eily, there's actually a lot of good discussion on the topic in the HN link choroba posted
[marto]: sorry for the late response, busy busy :/
[Corion]: I think you need to load Readline in the debugger, but I don't know how
[Corion]: Yay, invitation for a team-building workshop, with a team of 100 people :-/
[Eily]: marto after an additional read I started to see the light actually. And choroba's link was helpful as well :)
[Corion]: I'll send my colleague who doesn't yet know the people there, and I'll do production duty instead.
