in reply to Could Perlmonks be used as a reference?

I've seen people's CVs (resumes) with Brainbench Certifications / Scores on it, so I don't really see why you shouldn't use PerlMonks. Although IMO a concrete test score would look better than "Level 8 Bishop on PerlMonks." I guess it's down to what you as a person feel is right, if you are proud of your contribution to the site and you feel it accurately reflects your status in the Perl Community, then by all means show it to them.

Perhaps providing links to useful code, or good answers to tough questions you have written would be a good idea to include. If you're gonna link to PM as a reference, they'll want to see some action, not just the picture on your homenode. So make sure you've got a few "Top Nodes" up your sleeve. I think that would work.

Update: FYI, I am *clearly* stating that your XP level does not equate to skill. Which is why I suggested a code link or an answer link...

[LanX]: you can manipulate a html tree by addressing and replacing so called document objects (DOM) and from my experience the same methods can be used with any XML, though I didn't test all browsers yet

[marto]: the race to the bottom continues, many people lost their job yesterday as a client moves to another outsourcer
[LanX]: brexit or perlxit ?
[Corion]: Ow, marto :-/ I hope you aren't affected (except for the looming dread of more work for the same pay)
[marto]: unrelated
[marto]: Corion, no we're already being g tupe transferred to another employer. This was a banking sector client. They provided a reporting platform using ancient tech
