It's the only thing that bugs me about Perlmonk's otherwise perfect utilitarian design (vroom++). I think pipes are problematic separators there because capitalized text has a lot of vertical lines, so it looks cluttered, compared to something like bullet points:

    Log in • Create a new user • The Monastery Gates • Super Search • Seekers of Perl Wisdom • Meditations • PerlMonks Discussion • Obfuscation • Reviews • Cool Uses For Perl • Perl News • Q&A • Tutorials • Poetry • Recent Threads • Newest Nodes • Donate • What's New

• When the line breaks are removed the menu wraps smoothly (as shown here).

• Turning off text-decoration (underline) on links would clean up the menu and modernize the look of the entire site.

• Maybe integrate the monkquip with the blue page header. I think it wants to be under "PerlMonks" or over the search box or in its own blue <tr>.

• Need Help?? One question mark.

Thanks for all you do, and keep up the good work on Perlmonks!

    Fair enough. This will require modifying CSS in a static file, so will take some time.

    Done. Feedback requested. :-)

    Turning off text-decoration (underline) on links ...

    I don't know about that. We need to make accessibility a priority. I would want any change to ameliorate it, or at least not pejorate it. :-D

    integrate the monkquip with the blue page header

    Maybe.

    Need Help?? One question mark

    It's been that way since the beginning, and I think falls into the category of "fun, quirky stuff that makes PerlMonks distinctive".

    Thank you for your suggestions!

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

      Wow? That's beautiful! Thank you
