in reply to New Notes on Newest Nodes page

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.

    ++ to the suggestion of removing new notes that fall under "New Nodes". There were 225 new notes added today. The list is too long for browsing. I could write a LWP script to re-sort it by author, which might be useful, but that's the only use I can think of for this list.

    It would be tremendously useful to have a list of new notes on older pages. Those are often the most interesting posts: follow-ups, corrections, and improvements after a few days of thought.
