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

Personally, it doesn't bother me. When I first arrived I found it a little confusing to have several seemingly different AMs posting in the same thread. I don't find that to be so much of a problem these days.

I like the fact that people don't have to create an account, it lowers the bar for entry. If people have a positive experience when using the site they may end up staying and creating an account. If they don't register an account, who cares? For all I know they may keep coming back as AM.

I think BrowserUK put's it well in (part of) their signature: "Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.". I'd be just as happy with you explaining something I've done wrong or offering to help than I would with AM doing the same. Of course this is only my opinion, I've seen occasions were others have refused to help someone because they were posting as AM.

Don't put too much stock in voting systems. People often vote for the wrong reasons. IIRC this has been discussed several times before.

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 editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
