in reply to RFC: Better Best Answers Gets Real

Sounds like a positive thing to me. Thank you for taking the initiative.

Bulk-convert the extant CatQ's.

Will there be some way to remove the blessings? I only ask because I think there may be some answers in the CatQs which were probably best practice 20 years ago but less so now. The same will probably be true in 20 years of some "good" answers today. If there is a blessing-removal facility then the bulk conversion is fine but maybe going through and converting one-by-one isn't such a bad idea for quality's sake?

If QandAEditors is most in need of more willing volunteers, then I'll put my hand up.

    Very insightful question. I can tell someone's paying attention! Yes, we'd certainly need the capability to remove the star. That would be (and is) within the QandAEditors' area of responsibility. I haven't written it yet, on the presumption* that it will be a rare enough need that the gods can execute a request manually. But given the large number of extant Cat Q's and A's, we probably should have a GUI for it.

    * And you know what they say: You shouldn't presume; it makes a pres out of u and me.

    Happy to take you up on your offer to help. Presto! :-) Be sure to go to your Nodelet Settings and add the QandAEditors Nodelet straightaway. Thanks!

    I like the original post. I am not sure why it says that I have no access or permission to post a comment to the OP. ??? Anyway, I come here to PerlMonks every now and then, and I always learn something new! I love this website! I have saved a shortcut to the "Recent Threads" page, and that's what I look at each time. It's probably the most active / most popular page on here.
