Re^2: Help authors to help themselves; don't consider the small stuff

Why limit it to the approval nodelet? I'd love to see it directly on the node. (Or at least have the option to see it - I'd turn that option on.)

    Sorry, I meant to reply to this earlier. I'd make it just a link that goes to a form for you to compose your reply (with lots of room to type), with the author's name prepopulated and "re [id://...]" prepopulated. I wouldn't put it in a nodelet at all as that can lead people to replying to a parent node when they meant to reply to some deeper reply that they were reading on that page. It'd be even better if the node content is displayed underneath the reply form.

    It'd be nice to have a good term for "private reply to node via /msg" as using "reply" even as part of the term will be confusing.

    - tye        

      That would work. A name like /msg <author> would seem fairly unambiguous to me. I'd think that it makes sense to put it after the timestamp. (Both on the post you're looking at, and in the replies.)
        "/msg" as a link may work, but I'd put it under the "reply" and "d/l code" links next to each reply (and under the root node). Another suggestion for the name: "talk".

        C.

    Darn fine idea. ++
