Removing nodes from your personal nodelet

A small point, but it would be nice if when you are on a particular node that is on your personal nodelet, the "add <node>" link were changed to "remove <node>".

    I thought I would mention this trick as there might be other people just as dumb as me (I just tought about it today):

    You can add User Setting to your personal nodelet

    Then you are never more than 2 pages and 3 clicks away from removing a node (against 2 pages and 2 clicks plus some work for vroom with your proposal).

      Ah, sorry for asking for something that's already been asked for. Please consider my post another request for this feature. :)

      I've had a look at the replies to your post, and I have a couple of comments (I'm going to reply to them in this thread, as perhaps more people will see them; your post is three months old now):

      fundflow said:

      Wouldn't it be easier if the personal nodelet had a small checkbox style thing to remove the page?

      and

      tye replied:

      Sure that would be nice too. :) In fact, that would solve my other frustration with the personal nodelet: the long titles run together so it is hard to tell where one title ends and the next begins.

      Maybe this could be solved by using a <ul> tag for the list of nodes?

      In fact, I've done /msg tye 12345678901234567< em>45678901234567< /em*gt;5678901234567 to exploit a bug in the chatterbox breaking of long words so that my right-hand column is wider just to reduce this specific problem..

      An excellent idea, one which I'm now using myself (as you found out when I forgot to change "tye" to "mischief" when I was testing what length of characters looked best on my screen :-). (update: ... and then proceeded to forget to add the "/" to the beginning of my message, annoying not just tye, but everyone who's got their chatterbox turned on. Sorry. It was the cat! Honest!)

      Yes, I'm a freak

      I recommend beer. It helps.

      My personal nodelet has gotten a bit out of hand, so I'd still like the "remove this" feature ... if I had to choose between the two, I think I'd vote for fundflow's idea

      Personally, I think having a list of checkboxes next to the links in your personal nodelet isn't such a good idea. It would take much more space than it does already, especially with a submit button below the list. Perhaps we could have the option to display checkboxes if we wanted to?
