And of course you also need to know the rules of XP-not-whoring or "how not to get XP's with a detailed, accurate and sound post":

  • post during the week-end: a killer, no one reads "technical" posts during the week-end, discussions are OK because people just read them quickly and upvote the whole thread just to use all their votes, but no one downloads and check code when they're still half asleep and in a hurry to ++ as many posts as possible before making breakfast for the whole family,
  • post after 7pm GMT: by that time even West Coast monks have used up all of their daily allowance and by the time everybody gets their votes on the next day your post will be burried way down at the bottom of the Newest Nodes list,
  • correct a mistake by a high-ranking monk: yeah, like anybody's going to believe you!
  • post a Re: Re: Re: Re node: of course no one reads those,
  • Q&A answers: for some reason these always get a ridiculously low amount of votes, if any, probably because the name of the poster does not appear and Monks like to know who they give their favors to,
  • post something about security or cryptography: of course general advice like "Though shall use" or "Net::SSL does what you want" rack up the votes, as no one can argue with the Gospel, but anything more detailed and specific seems to scare the s*** out of Monks who are very hesitant to give their blessing to a method they have not seen approved by higher authorities,

And by the way you forgot the easiest trick to get XP's, even without writing a new post: just type "Hey, just 6 more votes and I'll gain a level" in the CB and wait...

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.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;

    [Lady_Aleena]: Corion, how are things?
    [Corion]: Lady_Aleena: Quite good ;) I'm working four days now, instead of five, which helps my mood and my weekends tremendously
    [Corion]: My Perl output hasn't recovered, but as $work is still somewhat stressful, I don't think this would be different with a five day workdweek
    [Lady_Aleena]: Corion, that is a good thing (TM) 8)
    [Corion]: And this evening, I'm actually dusting off some old module of mine and bringing it up to the last version of the library I'm wrapping
    [Lady_Aleena]: Updating things can be fun, if there is a better way to do it.
    [Corion]: Lady_Aleena: Mostly, it's just housekeeping, but it inspires me about things I could do with it, so that's good ;)
    [Lady_Aleena]: By the way, I stopped by to let someone know I'm still alive, though I haven't found anything to write in perl for a while now.
    [Lady_Aleena]: I need inspiration.
