Many feel as you do. It is not clear if big infrastructure changes would ever see the light of day here, if someone had enough initiative to even post something that people liked. That initiative would not be hard to take since there are plenty of scrapeable nodes, but few go that far.

Also Pair sponsors Perlmonks so nobody is stepping up to invest in the infrastructure they want.

Perlmonks has a winning formula, but you can too. If you build it, they will come. New site can link to here, they can link to there, probably would be mutually beneficial relationship. Almost guaranteed to succeed. Enough users have quit here that you would probably pick up at least 10-20 in the first month that just couldn't stand unanswered Perl questions laying around on the internet.

Sell some ads or perl books or camels or whatever, make some money, reinvest it and buy some new attractive content that the brightest Perl minds have to offer, attract some recruiters and sell them job listing, eventually culminating into a best selling autobiography about your success and fly in helicopters, get old and donate all your money to charity saving hundreds of thousands of lives.. It could happen.
