( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Guys, so sorry perlmonksflair has been down for a few weeks. Sadly enough I was extremely ill all those few weeks and hospitalised. Now I'm back home (with slight amnesia) so the site will be up in a few days to a week

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

In my endeavour to learn perl I built a little project for the folks at perlmonks. A flair generator :)

It's called

It was made with perl, varnish, dancer, starman and lots of love!

Just stick your username into the end of the url with a "jpg" and voila! You have a cool looking badge with neat graphics based on your level, all designed by my dear friend Jennifer Holt.

Enjoy! Please tell me what you think? Suggestions, feedback and insults all welcome. (There were talks with my designer about different themes and possibly an LOTR theme in tengwar?)

Feel free to post issues here :

Updates 12-Dec-13 :
  1. Site was down for some odd reason. Brought it back up.
Updates 29-Sept-13 :
  1. Cleanups and some refactoring
  2. The project is now a cpan module : PerlMonksFlairApp
Updates 10-Sept-13 :
  1. Changed the sizes for levels, making them smaller and also fit on the badge in all cases.
  2. Fixed crashes when user is initiate. (Really sorry about this one!)
Updates 21-Aug-13 :
  1. Flair badge will now show the actual level "Priest", "Monk" instead of a level.
  2. Fixed crash for usernames with spaces, dots and hyphens
  3. App ensures it gets a user (?type=user) so it works for a user like "japh"
  4. Experience shows up in black text for Scribe. (This is a wee bit of a hack) I shall talk to my designer.
  5. Images are now cached for 5 days. There is some additional browser caching added.

Thanks for reporting all those issues :)
