Re^4: Help authors to help themselves; don't consider the small stuff (private reply link)

in thread Help authors to help themselves; don't consider the small stuff

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.

      Yes, I'd put it there. "/msg" seemed too idiomatic so I didn't want to use that, but since it should become clear upon clicking on it, I think that is a good choice.
