User Settings Help

by roboticus (Chancellor)
on Jul 30, 2009 at 00:16 UTC ( #784426=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

After the "password scare", I updated my password, and then was going through my profile and settings, just in case something changed. While looking over the Miscellaneous section on User Settings I noticed that several items don't have any help in Help for User Settings. Specifically:

  • Default XML ticker style.
  • Extras in Domain Nodelet?
  • Show count of all replies
  • Show quips on XP loss/gain messages
  • No April Foolery

Obviously they don't all need explanation, but I certainly don't know what the first two are. (I turned on the Domain Nodelet to see what it is, but now that I've seen it, I still don't know what it's for.)

Finally, if changing the page is warranted, then I suggest that you add links to the "Miscellaneous" items which are currently missing them.

    I'm thinking the documentation for User Settings should actually go on the User Settings page, below the form. Does anybody have any objection to this?

    Between the mind which plans and the hands which build, there must be a mediator... and this mediator must be the heart.

    Sorry to revive such an old thread, but...

    I was about to post an almost identical query when I found this post from 2009!

    (The only thing I would add to it is: the explanation for Null vote doesn’t seem to cover the missing (default) or mid options.)

    So, is an update to Help for User Settings still on anyone’s TODO list?

    Thanks,
