( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'd keep the current sections but add a Tutorials-like table of contents for a significant subset of the questions. But someone has got to regularly update such a thing. Are you volunteering? (Just asking, and not pointedly.)

There are tons of things that need to be done to CatQ+A to make it work well as a FAQ repository. Several times I've seen one or more of these changes get started but they have never really kept traction. Too much maintenance work is required for most of them.

In some ways, no matter how well-done CatQ+A becomes, there will always be new guests who don't make use of it and post questions that are well-answered there. And in some ways, CatQ+A is just not close enough to the focus of PerlMonks.

In reply to Re^3: Q&A area should look more like the tutorial area by tye
in thread Q&A area should look more like the tutorial area by 5mi11er

Title:
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.
