Well, as far as I can see, no branding guidelines have been published yet.

This site's footer says something like PerlMonks somehow became entangled with The Perl Foundation or PerlMonks is a proud member of the The Perl Foundation but I don't know what that actually means beyond "it's being linked to from's Community site". Are there any other connections, like funding, which might make TPF believe they could require a style change?

In their working document there's a note that PerlMonks "pushed back" when talking about consistent sites. Maybe we should find out which monks did the pushing, and why? After all, changing a website layout causes some effort for which some volunteers need to find time for. There is a chance that those volunteers just fail to turn up, and it is also likely that any change causes criticism by some who like this site's 20th century style.

So I'd just wait and see whether and when a branding guideline appears, what support TPF is going to provide, and what the consequences would be if PerlMonks continue to push back.

As a user of this site, I actually couldn't care less.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
