<div>Hi all!</div>

<div>&nbsp;</div>

<div>I just wondered why the article &quot;Writing Games with SDL Perl&quot; isn&#39;t part of the SDLPerl website.</div>

<div>There is a web site called sdl.perl.org and his has a lot of (outdated) stuff on SDL and Perl.</div>

<div>But when it comes to content interesting for beginners, all we get is a link to a repo on github where you see the HTML source code of the text&nbsp;(a link to the HTML source code of a web site makes me cry) or a link to a PDF file that ypu have to download before you can open it.</div>

<div>As it&#39;s already available as HTML, why exactly aren&#39;t we showing it as a web site on sdl.perl.org?</div>

<div>&nbsp;</div>

<div>Please correct me if I&#39;m wrong, but aren&#39;t we interested in new people starting to use SDLPerl? How should one even get started if we put such obstacles in his way?</div>

<div>Having outdated and partial manpages online isn&#39;t a good thing, but why additionally hide the good things?</div>

<div>&nbsp;</div>

<div>So, enough of the rant. How can I help? What about the following: just put the page online, as first item under &quot;Articles&quot;.</div>

<div>Let&#39;s make it the first item even if it&#39;s not the most recent one. E.g. something called &quot;sticky&quot;. Maybe make a bubble to it like &quot;Get started here&quot;. Something glassy like that: <a href="https://3c.gmx.net/mail/client/dereferrer?redirectUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.clker.com%2Fcliparts%2FQ%2Fg%2Fq%2F4%2Fq%2F4%2F45-red-star-price-tag-md.png" target="_blank">http://www.clker.com/cliparts/Q/g/q/4/q/4/45-red-star-price-tag-md.png</a></div>

<div>Is there a way to contribute?</div>

<div>&nbsp;</div>

<div>Regards,</div>
