I tend to disagree, for two reasons.

First of all, I don't feel like going everyday to the Newest Nodes page and taking time to memorize people's new usernames.

Secondly, some people have established identities for their usernames, so that when you hear their name, you immediately know who they are and that they are devoted to PerlMonks. When people keep changing their usernames, the usernames lose their meaning and it just becomes "What we will call you this week."

You know, maybe people should be allowed to change their username, but in that case, people should lose all their XP, also, since they are under a new identity.

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.
