in reply to Making assessments

I'll describe my personal pattern of use rather than a possibly inaccurate assessment of use of the site as a whole. Then I'll leave it to you to decide what stats to look for to determine what might be a larger pattern.

  • Frequency of visits: I was admittedly in a lull in my frequency of visits even before the incident. I maintained my low frequency of visits since the intrusion.
  • Frequency of logins: I used to login every time I came. Now, I work as anonymonk unless necessary (I never post as anonymonk; my postings are my own). Necessary = posting, voting, accessing a few tools on my Personal Nodelett that I can't ever find without.
  • What I do here: I used to religiously live in RAT and strove to catch up all the reading. Now I check Tidings, Best Nodes and Status of Recent User Information Leak first. I'm always dissapointed at the staleness of these nodes. Then I catch up on Monastery Gates. If I have a Perl related problem I always come here first, even before Google (and usually find the answer so I don't need to go to Google and if I do go to Google, it almost always points me back here).

My general assessment is that perlmonks has suffered no ill reputation in my mind. I have the greatest respect for most of the monks here both as perl-ers and as general developers/computer scientists. If someone was struggling with perl I would certainly still recommend they create a new user and get involved in this community.

I know that there was some technical problem that led to the password problem, and I changed my password as a result; no big deal. I've been told to look for changes and updates and I expect to change it again when those are made (in addition to my own password frequency rules). Perhaps if some technical solutions are advertised as implemented I'l revert to my logging in every time and working from the more complete RAT view instead of staying ananoymous at the monestery gates.

#my sig used to say 'I humbly seek wisdom. '. Now it says:
use strict;
use warnings;
I humbly seek wisdom.
