in reply to PerlMonks for newbies?

It's a free world. If you really wish to run a "Perlmonks-the-newbies"-site, I wish you all the luck. Just know that it will be very difficult to emulate the success of this site. I cannot think of another site that is as close-knit as this bunch of totally different people and still welcomes all newcomers in their ranks.

The worst thing that could happen is that you give up half-way through and that all these abandoned newbies retreat in disgust from our beautiful language and start coding in PHP or --may the Gods forbid-- Java.

A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    I'm afraid this is already happening and has been for some time. Addressing this issue and bringing new people to Perl which these days would automatically go straight to PHP is the real aim for this project, and all the surrounding plans.
