in thread Nifty New Feature

That's what that nifty "preview" button is for. You can check to see if your links are correct.
Not after the fact, I can't. I make link [2345]. Someone three weeks later adds a node with title "2345". Boom, my link is broken.

If the [2345] feature would prefer a node-id to a search, my complaint would completely go away.

And maybe you don't care that someone could hurt your node by changing the location of a link, but I do.

    yeah, that could be a problem. There are nodes all around here that get used as regular parts of the page or references to user settings, etc. Would perlmonks break if someone named a node 1425? Or some other such node that gets posted on just about everyone's page?

    PS it is my understanding that nodelets like Other Users and Chatterbox are full nodes that have id's, please correct me if i'm wrong...

    Your "clever" little trick of creating a node that happened to be a link to your random picture display, is rather annoying. As a saint here, and possibly as a "respected" person, I'd expect more from you than petty tricks.

    It seems that perhaps, if you wanted to gain respect, you would point this error out to vroom, so he could fix it when he gets around to it, but you instead decided to exploit it: Congratulations. Here comes a -- from me.

      It was not my intent to leave it that way last night. I left it on for a few minutes so the others in the CB could see that it was (again) possible. I left before I remembered to change it back.

      Chill dude. Take a happy pill or something. Stop putting me up on a pedestal just so you can watch me fall. Stop attributing to malice what can be explained by stupidity!
