( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I must be missing something, but I can't figure out how to get past this minor problem I'm having at PerlMonks. If I see an interesting post, then I like to keep it open in a browser window and refresh the window periodically to stay on top of the discussion.

The problem occurs when I either vote on a post or send a message in the Chatterbox. The URL changes to and I can no longer refresh the page. (It tries to repost the form data when I click the button.)

Currently I try to remember to copy the URL before clicking the VOTE or TALK buttons. To me this is the easiest way to get back to the main discussion without jumping from page to page (i.e., Newest Nodes > Post).

Am I missing a better way to do this? I tried searching the User Settings, but unless I can set something up in the Personal Nodelet, I don't think I can configure this behaviour. If there isn't a better way, how can I request adding a link to the current node as a UI change?

Thanks for your help and patience.
