in thread RFC on suggestion of possible addition to Writeup Formatting Tips

popups have always been voted down around here in the past. some (like me,) don't like them. others point out usability problems, such as alternate browsers not capable of handling them. i agree that a link or cheatsheet would be useful, but i doubt it will be implemented as a popup window.

    After thinking about your remarks and my own feelings concerning popups, I would like to withdraw the popup suggestion.

    I use Mozilla, and have popups turned off for "All" sites, which I should have considered when making the original suggestion. The times that I have to use IE, they annoy me no end... Plus if the user does want a new window to open there is (in most newer browsers anyway) the option for right-clicking on a link and having it come up in a new tab or window.

    I still think a "cheatsheet" of the most commonly used markup and linking information below the text entry box on the input page with a link to a "complete" list of formating and linking information would be a helpful addition to the site.

[Corion]: But LPW was enjoyable, even though it's always a bit hectic due to cramming everything into one day
[Corion]: I have no feeling about how my talk was received, but I'm happy with it, which counts the most to me ;-D
[Corion]: Also, London is always a nice visit, as I got to meet a friend there, and spent some time offline, working on "minor" features of the shadertoy thing ;)
[marto]: maybe next year when the kids are a little older I'll have time to attend perl events in Europe
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - there isn't a Perl Day-Care at Perl events - we thought about it for YAPC::Europe 2012 but it's a gigantic effort to organize that
