As I noticed before, there is no real standard for when to frontpage a node, and I feel this is not sufficient. This morning I asked in CB why a particular node was frontpaged, and it appeared some monks have really different 'rules' for frontpages than I have (some others act similar).

My ruleset goes like:

  1. I 'OK' a node if it's properly formatted, doesn't feel trollish and it is posted in the right section. If it's not, I go to CB and ask for other opinions. I may move it thereafter. or consider it.
  2. I do not normally frontpage a node.
  3. If a node is really something of special beauty or importance, I frontpage it. If I'm not sure, I go to CB for more opinions.
  4. I never frontpage my own nodes, as frontpaged nodes have an unfair headstart.

The other monk said he frontpaged a node because he didn't know the answer and didn't see any replies.

As always, the truth lies in the middle, and I'm probably too restrictive. So, what do you think?

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.
