Listing PM nodes you've ++'d?

I wonder if it would be convenient to be able to list all of the PM nodes you gave a ++ to? Similar to the Nodes You Wrote link in the Find Nodes Nodelet.

For me, this would be ideal since I frequently remember a neat idea that I ++'d, but can't easily recall where it is. I've tried using search and super search, but it usually takes me a few tries before being successful.

A quick query in CB snagged a reply from tye saying it would be easy for him, but not for me. This made me think it was possible, but not available (and I playfully made to stick my tongue out at him :-). I did a quick search, but didn't find any discussion on this, and wondered if implementing it would be bad (use up too much server resource or something like that).

Any thoughts?

      planetscape great pointers! Many thanks. Following the Free Nodelet Hacks looks like it will take me weeks to get through alone! I hate to think of the hodge-podge I'll end up with, but the journey will be fun nonetheless.

    The Personal Nodelet is an easy way to collect and manage bookmarks to nodes you want to remember. It's not tied to the ++ mechanism in any way, but I think it may suit your needs. (It's much simpler than the Free Nodelet.)

    A word spoken in Mind will reach its own level, in the objective world, by its own weight
      Thanks for pointing me to About the Personal Nodelet. I now have mine setup and it is indeed useful.

      While setting this up at Personal Nodelet Settings it occurred to me that it would really be cool if there was an Autoadd ++ nodes button I could push. Once enabled, any node that I upvoted would be automatically added.

      This is different than my initial request, but might be very useful in a slightly different way.

        You can add Javascript code to your FreeNodelet, which will be run on each page view.

        Have it figure out that you're on a voting page (I guess by looking for the CSS class of the radio buttons).

        Add a hook into the "vote" button so that it collects all the "checked" radio buttons' corresponding nodeIDs into a list and do something useful with it (probably involving AJAX).

        I've done something similar recently (with bart's help) to enable selective "quoting" of the parent post when replying to a node.

    I upvote so many nodes I'm not interested in remembering them. There are some reasons I vote them up:
    • The nodes provide great technical information
    • The nodes provide helpful non-technical information
    • The nodes teaches persuasive answer
    • The nodes present real problem, well prepared and well written
    • The nodes solve the problem
    • The (root) nodes generate interesting thread eventhough they're not qualified for the above reasons
    And if a node is so interesting that encourages me to read it again in the future, I'll add it on my Personal Nodelet. I don't think adding another list would add another value to the monastery. I would have a list with most nodes I'm not, again, interested in remembering them.

    Open source softwares? Share and enjoy. Make profit from them if you can. Yet, share and enjoy!

    Well obviously it'd have to be limited to your nodes based on your session. You don't want others knowing what you voted down do you?

    Folks already get too hung up about votes on their nodes... don't really need to give them more information :-/

    I don't really see the point. Browsers have bookmarks, history, "places". Perhaps you could export your bookmarks to a section of your private scratchpad ?


      What I'm looking for is a list of other people's nodes that I've voted ++ on. The theory here is that I up-vote nodes that are in some way valuable or useful to me. If I could quickly get a list of these nodes, I'd be able to find the things that hover around the foggy edges of my memory faster.

      Making browser bookmarks and then exporting them to my scratchpad is a good idea, and something that I can look into. I just thought that if enough folks felt the same way I do, it would make a useful addition to the Find Nodes nodelette.
