in thread Format of Q&A Section

Yes, the Q+A section is less polished than most of the other sections. A reply count would be great. (Part of the point of the section is to provide "finished" answers and not discussion so the content of replies usually gets merge back into answers, which is why the replies themself aren't shown and probably never will be).

It'd also be nice to show the author more often (some views don't show such). But this will probably be fixed by making Q+A nodes owned by the author since I've found a work-around for the need of having them owned by a seperate user. That will simplify code in several places. Just haven't gotten around to finishing that task yet.

The section should also be renamed so people are more likely to go there to find Perl FAQ answers.

Thanks for the suggestions.

    content of replies usually gets merge back into answers - this can be a problem with answers full of critics. There should be some pressure on the author to do that - perhaps by a written instruction.

      Authors can't do anything in categorized Q+A. Have you ever posted to the section? QandAEditors are supposed to do these things (and are the only ones who can).
