in reply to Editing node titles w.r.t. Perl 6


I saw the request to mark it "OT". Clearly, that was wrong, as Perl 6 is not at all Off Topic here.

Developing a standard for denoting Perl 6 specific items is not a Bad Thing.

    "...Perl 6 is not at all Off Topic here."

    Agree wholeheartedly. I don't think we should alienate people and/or push them away due to the version of Perl they are using. New Perl users who adopt Perl6 as their first language should be welcome here, as should people who began with Perl5 (or 4 or whatever) who are moving to Perl 6.

    Besides... Perlmonks is declining in activity. I for one welcome anyone who's willing to ask questions here.

      While I agree with you, I'm reluctant to repeat a discussion we just had not long ago.

      Please don't fall into the trap to feed a certain monk, who tries to push his agenda again and again by attacking Perl6 posts.


      Or in divine words

        The underlying question is if it is a good think to encourage people who can edit node titles to put the [Perl6] tag on other's posts.

        I agree.

        Well, since you brought it up.

        You may try to make it seem like one person's grudge, but the vote counts inconveniently show a consistent 25% to 50% minority of voters agrees with me. not-Perl6 is not Perl and should have its own name, its own CPAN, and its own community learning website. It should stand on its own two feet (after 16 years!) or fall on its face, but quit riding on Perl's reputation, undermining it, and spreading confusion.

        The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
