a little backgroud, We have translated about 30 articles since January perlchina started and more are coming. In return of showing appreciation for their effor, we decide to pick 4 or 5 best translated articles every two months and give the translator a Perl book/t-shirt/mug . but the fund is limited and APress 's donation is definitely a big help.
this is the first time I have involved in building an online community. since january, we have gathered a small community of chinese perl users around perlchina. It's been exciting. But I have heard too many communities died out for one reason or another and I keep wondering how we can survive and seeking advice.
we have the wiki site for translation collaboration. forum for member communication. I am going to set up a newsletter to keep other less frequent users updated. hmm, it would be nice to hear how perlmonks becomes what it is now.
oh by the way, the translated article i like the most is "brian's Guide to Solving Any Perl Problem" it's in chinese
I wish someone could give me a link to that article when i started learning perl or programming. (even so, that article wouldn't have born yet
