There are other threads questioning the slow turn-over of frontpage posts and now one questioning the quickened turn-over of posts - This is really a non-issue from my perspective.
The front-page of the site is not intended as a reward for posts, but rather to represent a cross-section of recent posts which may or may not provoke thought or consideration. As to whether these represent the best of the community or daily posts is fairly unimportant, it is the cross-section and discussion knowledge base as a whole which they represent that is significant and indeed, the value of this site. Furthermore, given the wide and diverse usage of Perl, the focus of this cross-section is necessarily broad in scope, in turn, further adding to the value of this site and it's place in the Perl community.
For a previous discussion on this topic, see Rampant Frontpaging.
perl -le 'print+unpack("N",pack("B32","00000000000000000000001000000110"))'
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
