I agree with the part where you state that such a change would deal with the meaning of the word "saint", but I don't believe it would cause any technical problems, since the Monastery is based on nodes IDs and not names.

    ...the Monastery is based on nodes IDs and not names.

    Mostly true, if you're talking only about "site" docs, such as the PerlMonks FAQ, the Tutorials, and so on.

    But people are free to post nodes in which they link to nodes by title, and it's best not to go wantonly breaking such links, at least without very good reason. See, for example, How do I link to nodes on this site by title? :-)

    We're building the house of the future together.
      I understand, jdporter. As a matter of fact I was expecting that someone would say that =:c)

      The truth is we, as programmers, should understand the basic difference between using a node ID and a title and that is IDs should never change and most probably won't. A node title is a whole different story just because it's nature: a bunch of words. Words carry meanings, emotions, and so on, while numbers don't (at least not in the context of this discussion).

      We deal with code, databases and stuff so we should know better =;c)

      Anyway, as I've stated before, I understand your point of view and yes, I must confess treating words is more comfortable and easy than numbers.

      Best regards,
