Mr. Muskrat++ for a well-written and informative article.

I have to admit that I've been very hesitant about clicking the "Front page" button, and I believe I've yet to do so. I've always been under the impression that only the creme de la creme of the Monastery should be front-paged. (And therefore usually somemonk had beaten me to it).

I agree with Aristotle and atcroft that the front-page should be representative of the breadth of the community; that SOPW posts by "newbies" that feature good, clear answers should be front-paged along with the more advanced meditations to show that PerlMonks is a valuable resource whatever your ability. I have to admit to being a little bit intimidated and scared off by Perl initially, so much so I didn't really start frequenting the Monastery until three months after I had joined. I also think that front-paging nodes that have yet to be answered, lest they have been casually overlooked, is a good idea that I intend to practice in future.

On the subject of spelling, I have on occasion sent a gentle private message to a couple of monks whom I've noticed have nodes which contain spelling errors while I have been approving nodes, and I'm wondering if this is being a little bit too pedantic, or whether other monks approve of this. What are your guidelines regarding speling errers? :)
