in thread Site facelift? perldoc, and many other perl sites were nicely rehauled recently
If I go to, I see Last updated on 13 August 2009. Not a sign of being "recently rehauled". Furthermore, the homepage also says The code generating this web site is based on the code that was generating as it was released by Jon Allen on 24th December 2008. An indication it was worked on for half a year, then abandoned.

On top of that, perldoc proundly presents "Perl version 5.8.8 documentation". 5.8.8 was released January 2006. Perl has seen 6 releases, of which 2 major, since.

But hey, if that works, great! All we need to do overhaul perlmonks, delete the last 4 years of articles, remove the ability to post new content, and Perl will eat PHP before Christmas.

I don't blame anyone; I'm happy with perlmonks as is, but I want my favorite website to attract new fans, and right now it's nigh to impossible.
      but I want my favorite website to attract new fans, and right now it's nigh to impossible.

      Is it really? Are looks really the cause? How do you know?

        People can't stand slow sites. People don't like ugly sites. This is true for everyone, programmers aren't a special race of mutants. I'd like to see site statistics to prove me wrong...

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
