Are there stats as far as posts/quality of posts over time?
I have kept up to date this summary of best nodes reputation from 2007 onwards
which shows that the node reputation of best nodes of the month steadily decreased
from 83-135 votes in March 2007 down to 46-65 votes in Dec 2011.
It has been remarkably stable since then: in Dec 2012
it was 47-64 votes, today it is 40-64 votes.

Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
- a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
