in reply to Monastery gates typo and title change

Thank you, esteemed brother!

  1. Fixed.
  2. Fixed. I have removed "Offer your reply" from the last few places where it was residing.
  3. Fixed. I have renamed all the sections of The Monastery Gates to remove the word "New", since that's not really what the Front Page is about (anymore?). I also renamed the SoPW section as "Supplications". If people have heartburn with that, let me know. Maybe I'll change it back. :-)
I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    When logging in, I often have in the back of my mind: "Let's see what supplicants we have at the front gates today."

    I think "Supplications" is very apt; causes me no "heartburn"; and gets my vote.

    I think it's a nice addition, I just would pick one nit: "Starts at", "Ends at", and "Current Status" are on separate lines, taking up a fair amount of vertical space, I think they'd fit much better arranged horizontally.

      Indeed. Maybe "$STATS: Runs from $START thru $FINISH".

      Also, maybe title/hover text on the section headers:

    Thanks! I think that "Supplications" works quite well :) . Except for the fact that this time I didn't get to learn a new word like others seem to have :'(

    Never heard the word, I had to look it up. Are you sure newbies will get it?

    I'm not sure which problem you are trying to solve with the rename.

      Also new to me. I also had to consult the dictionary. When I read the translation "Smeekbede", my conclusion was that I was happy to have learned a new word that is perfectly in line with the PerlMonks theme.

        Well it's only the Monastery Gates, who's using that anyway and cares about the titles.

        > perfectly in line with the PerlMonks theme.

        So changing the css-font for code sections to early medieval handwriting would be even better?

        I have apologize:

        I really thought it's about making perlmonks a better place for newbies.

        I really should have asked what the intention was.

        Cheers Rolf

      Nobody would guess what SoPW was without looking it up. "Supplications" is consistent with the monastery theme and being a slightly less usual word makes it, IMV, more appealing.

        Did the old title use to be the literal acronym "SoPW" or was it "Seeker of Perl Wisdom"?

        update

        I was able to answer it myself, it used to be "New Questions"

        That's the diff:

        - "New Questions",$sopwnum,0,0,"Seekers+of+Perl+Wisdom") + "Supplications",$sopwnum,0,0,"Seekers+of+Perl+Wisdom") unless ($VARS->{fp_sopw_off} eq "on");

        Is this the problem we are trying to solve?

        I just had a look at "Other Users" and only one third of the monks currently listed were native speakers.
