I've been here just about as long as anyone, months before there was a Chatterbox or a Voting/Experience System.

Instead of making pronouncements, I would rather emphasize the design intent, history, and evolution of the current mechanisms and culture surrounding them.

The Chatterbox came about to build a sense of community -- a way for users to get to know each other, making small talk and sticking around, giving simple advice. It's publicly viewable, but messages only stick around for five minutes by design.

Nodes, on the other hand, last until the heat death of the universe or vroom has to sell the server to pay for heating oil. If you want your words to have a sense of permanence, post them in a node.

By all means, take advice from the Chatterbox when possible and from nodes as often as you can. But leave the chatter light, and treat your other monks with respect.

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;
