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

Aye, I take credit for this thread.   I just couldn’t resist the temptation to post it anonymously.   :-D

And the use-case basically is mine.   “IP-address” is a form of fairly-unique identification (meant only to keep someone from swiping Anonymous posts by someone else, when they’ve accumulated enough positive-XP?).   Sure, it might be reasonable to require “consideration,” but I’m not entirely sure that it’s necessary for the use-case that I am thinking of.

The use-case that I am thinking of, of course, has to do with a recent comment that I made to a Meditation, and in fact was(!) able to Update (as “my own”) several times, when, suddenly and unexpectedly, I was no longer logged-on and(!!!) the post that I had been editing suddenly had become(!!!!) anonymous.   I’d like to recover from whatever PerlMonks session-handling bug this might have been, and to reclaim my post as my own.   (No matter what XP it might have accumulated ... I’ll take my lumps if there be any.)   In particular, I’d like to reclaim the ability to edit it.

And that’s all.   That’s my use-case; nothing more or less.   I don’t care about XP here, one way or the other.   I want to compensate for the negative effects of a PM web-site bug which happens occasionally.   Since I do not myself stoop to manipulation of XP through exploitation of the Anonymous Monk disguise, concerns about this angle are of no interest to me ... and I would like to have the feature without delays or complications caused by “XP-proofing” it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
