|There's more than one way to do things|
I suspect that like most monks, I have the "XP Nodelet", "Chatterbox", "Personal Nodelet", and similar items on the side of my perlmonks pages.
I would like to request of the powers that grace this site to add a collapsible feature to this column. The concept does not have to be fancy, just a visible toggle to turn this information on and off.
For a slightly fancier example, please see the Collapsible Menu Item in this link
The perlmonks version does not have to be quite so fancy. Perhaps simply replace the column with a small button to turn the column back on once hidden?
This would be a wonderfully useful feature that hopefully will not be difficult to implement.
