Link to whole thread in Newest nodes

Hi,

I just saw that the Newest Nodes page now shows the name of the poster. Very nice!

Here's another idea I had just now: next to each link in Newest Nodes, add a link to the top node of the thread (where it makes sense, e.g. for "Notes/Replies" and "Categorized Answers"). Sometimes I want to see the latest replies, but I also want to see the whole thread for context.

Thanks vroom for your great work in this site. It is certainly where I spend most of my online time lately :-)

    That would help things a lot. Gets kind of confusing when you are looking at all those replies.

[Eily]: can't the nodelet be moved though? Maybe you could put one that doesn't change first ("Sections" or "Find Nodes" for example)
[Eily]: "Other Users" seems like a poor choice :P
[Eily]: nope, Nodelet Settings doesn't let you move the XP Nodelet, CSS might
[marinersk]: That would mitigate the distraction/jangle issue, but then the information wouldn't be easy to find when it is populated. Plus, I don't currently see a way to move it, but I'm not done poking around on that point yet.
[marinersk]: Ah, you beat me to it.
