in reply to Update PerlMonks on Wikipedia

Notable members include the creator of the Perl language, the authors of several well-known Perl books and the authors of numerous CPAN modules. CPAN authors frequently promote and provide support for their modules at PerlMonks.

Wikipedia will likely ask for refs for those statements (easily done I think, links to home nodes).

Thanks for posting this. I don't think I've ever looked up PM on wikipedia before.

    ... NOT so "easily done... (with) links to home nodes" /me thinks.

    How would TimToady's home node serve as a citation for his role in Perl?

    And one could selectively ID some CPAN authors by their home nodes here, but other Monks' have home nodes which make no reference to their modules.

    Nonetheless, ++ for noting the liklihood that some Wikipedian will ask citations. Such requests do undermine the credibility of the posted info, unless it's on a topic on which the reader (well, this "reader" anyway) is already knowledgeable.
