( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I prefer to see as uncluttered front page as possible.

I like to see things that are of general interest that I wouldn't look for. New discoveries, methods etc. Things that would be of interest outside the specifics. Maybe where the discussion makes more general reading.

Take a newpaper, the front page has the attention grabbing stuff and pointers to other articles that don't fit. Regular features, contributors and so forth are usually in know places so can be found quickly. You may need to know where to look but there are often guides to help new comers.

Papers and their ilk have fixed sizes for a page that is absent in web pages but if the front page gets too much on it then it becomes less usable.

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.
