PerlMonks works because, among other things, it promotes self improvement.

By attending and partecipating in PM exchange of information, you become involved in the Perl culture. The Monastery system of peer review makes you aware of your limits as well as your strength.

You become a better programmer simply staying here and playing by the rules. The peer review encourages everybody to write only (well mostly) good code, appropriate comments, sound advice. If you know that a few thousand well trained pairs of eyes are going to check waht you say, you want to make sure that your posts are of good, if not excellent quality before they go to the general scrutiny.

It is like playing chess. You don't become a Grandmaster by playing to the average woodpushers. You must enter the arena and face the best players. It isn't easy, but it's the only way.

So the main element for PM success is the community driven moderation system tuned for quality.

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!
  • 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:
    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
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
