Occasionally, the gods find it fitting to set the faithful to a task: a Quest.

Each Quest is active for a limited time. This is usually fairly short — a few days or weeks — but sometimes a Quest lasts until the end of the epoch.

Quests are the gods' way of soliciting idea from the general populace for ideas for improving PerlMonks. Therefore, Monks who contribute worthy suggestions are eligible to receive special dispensations of eXperience Points. However, a greater incentive is the fame and karma (let's call it "pharma") that naturally accrues to successful Questers .

    First, read How do I create a Poll?. Then suggest your poll here. Complete ideas are more likely to be used.

    Note that links may be used in choices but not in the title.

    misty is getting a dye-sublimation system which means there could be more varieties of PM merchandise in the future. She would take care of all the work and give PerlMonks a percentage of the sales. So now we need to give her designs to work with and or items you would be interested in getting.

    The most obvious items are:

  • Mugs
  • Mousepads

    Here are some other possibilities:

  • coasters
  • keychains
  • wall clocks (8" round)
  • wrist watches (quartz, genuine leather bands, 1 1/4" diameter)
  • fridge magnets
  • frame magnetic magnets (4" round, hold 1.75"x1.75" photos)
  • polyester or cotton tote bags (have to check them out)

    I'll leave it at that. If you've got ideas for items, cool designs, or know which items you'd be interested in getting let us know below.

    I'm notoriously bad at coming up with new poll ideas. Help me out here please. You probably won't get awarded any extra XP even if this is a quest cuz that equals additional work for me. However, if I find your poll idea worthy I can add it to a pool of potential polls for the future. Then I just need to write a script and add it to my crontab.

    Note: follow the prior instructions in How do I create a Poll? before replying.

    All right kids the moment you've all been waiting for. That's right there is a new quest. The goal is to get all of you to write up a review of your favorite most used modules. Conversely you can writeup about modules others should avoid. Hopefully this will raise awareness of many of the wonders of the Perl world which often remain hidden within the dark recesses of CPAN.

    Your mission: make the Reviews Section look a lot less bare. Write up a review for your favorite module, book, conference, PM user. If you're lucky I might write up a review of YAPC or Memoize

    If you really have an ax to grind with a given book... etc or believe it's your divine call to warn others to avoid a given book etc... that's allowed too.

    Update: Post your review in Reviews. I'm deleting any reviews in this thread when they become a /real/ review.
