[OT] How about an Off Topic Section?by flexvault (Monsignor)
|on Jun 05, 2015 at 16:15 UTC||Need Help??|
About once a week( sometimes more ) I see a question that is immediately answered as '...this is off topic, and you should ask on another forum...' which is technically correct.
So why not have an 'OT' section?
I have a lot of respect for the members of this forum, and not so much for other forums. If I see a comment about *nix, JS, HTML, etc., as part of an answer about Perl, I often find that response to be true and a valuable asset to my programming knowledge base.
The OT section should have some relation to Perl, but I would much rather test ideas and comments from this forum, then rely on the *comments* from other forums. There is a wealth of real world knowledge from the Monks on PerlMonks.org, that just can't be duplicated on other forums.
What do you think?
