Re: New Notes on Newest Nodes pageby Brovnik (Hermit)
|on Jul 06, 2001 at 17:12 UTC||Need Help??|
A variation on this I'd like is for new notes on Nodes that are also in the Newest Node list to not be shown.
Most nodes get most replies fairly soon after the Node has been created, so many of the New Notes are replies to Nodes already on the New page.
If the Node title looks interesting, then I'll see the replies anyway when I click on the top node, and if not, I'm not likely to want to read the replies.
This large number of notes makes it harder to pick out replies to nodes that I have seen before and might want to see.
I agree that cutting out the new users is a good idea. Since few if any (I haven't checked) new users will have useful content on their home node immediately after creating an account.
Summary : Remove (with an option if necessary) replies to nodes
that are on my newest nodes list.
