( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Great I'm take advantage of by adding a few things that've been bugging me lately:

When a post is a true duplicate (original author submitted twice without substantial rewrite/rework), it would really help if people would see if either post has replies. If so, then consider the one that doesn't have substantial replies.

And, while we're on the subject, please enter reasons when you consider nodes. Almost every time a node has been considered "silently," I've had to vote Keep--because my personal copy of PSI::ESP seems to have a bad install, if you know what I mean.

Finally, I do not believe the following reasons are valid reasons to consider nodes:

  • "vague"
  • "answered previously"
  • "again?"
  • "poor composition skills"
  • "off-topic"

While these may not be the best nodes on the site, they generally are posted by new members or people who haven't yet learned the ropes. Please consider these opportunities to welcome and educate, rather than to criticize and rebuff. If we want people to feel welcome, then you need to roll out the mat and start smiling when they show up. Please treat them as guests, and not "freaking [l]users."

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:
