( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I think it's an interesting idea, but like many proposals, risks over-engineering a solution away from the simplicity that makes Perlmonks work, all for the sake a what I believe are relatively few instances of PM "not working".

Personally, I see very few questions that aren't answered. The ones that aren't are usually poorly written or lack sufficient information for someone to help -- and there's usually at least one reply that points that out. If I see a good but poorly answered or unanswered question, I'll Front-Page it (if it hasn't been already) and give it a little more attention. (There have been similar proposals to yours about "re-Front-Paging" things that fell off and for simliar reasons.)

My default view is "Recently Active" so I can see what does and doesn't have significant activity. If you haven't tried it, I recommend reading PM that way for a week -- at first, don't mark the threads as read and you'll get an ongoing view of the pockets of activity and which posts are drawing less interest. It may help draw you to areas where your contribution will be valued.

(P.S. Statsmonks -- just for curiousity's sake, any way of counting how many OP's have zero replies? Or a distribution of # of replies?)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • 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.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
