Never heard the word, I had to look it up. Are you sure newbies will get it?

I'm not sure which problem you are trying to solve with the rename.

    Also new to me. I also had to consult the dictionary. When I read the translation "Smeekbede", my conclusion was that I was happy to have learned a new word that is perfectly in line with the PerlMonks theme.

      Well it's only the Monastery Gates, who's using that anyway and cares about the titles.

      > perfectly in line with the PerlMonks theme.

      So changing the css-font for code sections to early medieval handwriting would be even better?

      I have apologize:

      I really thought it's about making perlmonks a better place for newbies.

      I really should have asked what the intention was.

    Nobody would guess what SoPW was without looking it up. "Supplications" is consistent with the monastery theme and being a slightly less usual word makes it, IMV, more appealing.

      Did the old title use to be the literal acronym "SoPW" or was it "Seeker of Perl Wisdom"?

      update

      I was able to answer it myself, it used to be "New Questions"

      That's the diff:

      - "New Questions",$sopwnum,0,0,"Seekers+of+Perl+Wisdom") + "Supplications",$sopwnum,0,0,"Seekers+of+Perl+Wisdom") unless ($VARS->{fp_sopw_off} eq "on");

      Is this the problem we are trying to solve?

      I just had a look at "Other Users" and only one third of the monks currently listed were native speakers.
