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

Great reminder...one 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."

Title:
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.
