However, I am frequent reader on PM (strange for me) mostly because community is great and feedback system (up/down vote) is so valuable that I would really missed it in NNTP-like client.
Well, the technique is there, although it's mostly used to filter spam. Potentially far more useful than the (IMO) worthless XP system we have here. Feedback is useful if you can use its results - to ignore posts for instance. But here you can only find out the reputation of a note by voting for it - and hence, spending more time on it than you want.

Usenet clients usually have a much better "feedback" system than Perlmonks has: the ability to score articles based on their headers.

Title:
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.
