It's been said before, but as a reminder, please keep the following in mind when submitting posts for consideration:
  • If the post is a duplicate, first verify that the other instance hasn't already been considered.
  • If the post is a duplicate, provide the id or a link to the node it is a duplicate of. Nobody should be voting to delete a duplicate without first verifying, and if the duplicate isn't mentioned, this requires each person to search to find the missing original, until someone modifies the title of the post to point to it.
  • If submitting a node for a title change, supply an alternate title in the consideration. You've read the post--the editor who goes to correct it might not have, and if s/he isn't following the thread, s/he probably doesn't want to read the post to think of an appropriate title. If you can't think of a better title than the original author did, you have no business considering it for a title change.
  • Be very clear what the node is submitted for: edit or deletion and why. Something like "should be obvious" isn't. What's obvious to one person may not be obvious to another, especially if the second person hasn't read the message yet.
  • When considering for duplicate deletion, only consider real duplicates. This means that questions which have been asked time and time again should not be considered--rather, reply to the post with an explanation on the use of search and some results which would have answered the question. This won't stop the next person from asking the question (but neither will deleting the post), but it might teach one user how to use search instead of bewildering her/him with a vanished post.
All this and more is available in the Consideration FAQ.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • 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:
    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
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
