#1: Introducing myself...

Posted on 2011-10-04 21:44:53 by John SJ Anderson

Hi everybody --

As Casey announced the other day, I recently volunteered to take over
list moderation duties. I think this list is a really important
resource for the Perl community, and I think it's important that
people new to Perl can start to get an understanding of how great that
community can be via their interactions on this list.

I apologize for taking this long to send this message out; my
volunteering was somewhat spontaneous and happened to come at a time
when I've got a lot of other balls in the air -- so I've had to keep
juggling those while trying to draft this email, and in the end it's
taken me longer than I would have liked.

One thing I will be doing in the very short term future is revising
the list FAQ -- Leo Lapworth is helping me with that (thanks Leo!).
I'll post a note when the final version is up on learn.perl.org. The
primary changes are removing sections on topics that are now better
covered on other parts of learn.perl.org, and moving Casey and others
into a "valued emeritii" section. However, one of the sections I'm
actually adding content to is the "No flames" section, and that seems
worth mentioning now.

First, the Reasonable Person Principle should be considered to be in
effect on this list, just as it is on irc.perl.org. If you're not
familiar with the Principle, see
<http://www.irc.perl.org/reasonable_person.html>

Second, I'm adding a guideline clarifying that posts should be about
beginners questions and answers to those questions. When your posts
start to get more into talking about other people, their behavior, and
what you don't like about it ... you're crossing into off-topic
territory. If somebody answers something in a way you don't care for,
the very best thing you can do is to write a better answer. Failing
that, just ignore the behavior you don't like. If you're absolutely
unable to ignore it and just *have* to send an email about it -- email
me, not the list.

I'm hoping that most people won't need to remember who the List Mom
is, that things will continue to run in a reasonable and friendly
fashion without too much external course correction needed. I think of
the additions to the FAQ as clarifying existing practice, rather than
being any sort of drastic change. That said, if anybody has any
questions -- let's talk.

Again, I think this list is a valuable part of the Perl community, and
I think everybody for their participation -- the questioners and the
answerers both. I'm happy to be able to play a small part in
maintaining the list.

thanks,
john.


PS: For those of you wondering "who _is_ this guy?" -- and I don't
think it will be all that many of you, which is why this is down here,
where people can easily ignore it... -- here's a brief bio: I've been
programming Perl for about 13 years now. I'm primarily self-taught
(and would have loved this list back when I was starting out...); my
formal training is in molecular biology, not computer science. After a
number of years as a Linux sysadmin, I'm currently a web developer. I
live outside of Washington DC, USA, and am a regular attendee of DC
Perl Mongers meetings (dc.pm.org). I will be speaking at PPW this
coming weekend, and if any list regulars are there, I'd be happy to
buy you a $BEVERAGE and talk about ways this list could work better as
well as ways in which it already works well. Thanks again and cheers.

Welcome to your post John

Moderating this list is a huge undertaking and I am grateful that you
have volunteered

Soon after your promotion there were two posts; one from Octavian asking
whether bottom posting was the rule, and the other from Ron talking
about 'List Experience'

I would appreciate a reply to both of those (although I would respect a
statement that said that rules were in flux)

This list is a valuable resource to people worldwide and you have my support

Rob

Replies to those are forthcoming -- as I said, I'm juggling a number
of things at this point, including trying to get a presentation put
together for the Pittsburgh Perl Workshop this weekend. I will get to
them, and I hope sooner rather than later.

thanks,
john.

Is a quick congratulations too OT? If so excuse me.
Dp.
