The issue of editing root nodes is considered a feature, and not a bug. I don't totally agree with the policy, but I do understand the reasons for it. Changing a top-level node can cause havoc (or at least some extreme out-of-context replies). Hence, the mighty "Preview" tag. Some top-level nodes *can* be edited (e.g. snippets) but in general, you just have to be really careful. Extreme errors can be changed by making a petition to the gods. For minor ones, replying to yourself is sometimes the best way to go.

Don't worry about making a post you later regretted or really, really wanted to edit - we've all done the same. Consider it a rite of passage. :)

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
