in thread new tag

OK, so here are the arguments again ;--)

  • more work for Vroom for very little benefit: [author://5993] instead of mirod? Not a lot of keystrokes saved!
  • I like calling people by their names, and it's much easier to remember than an ID number.
  • I am not a number, I am a free man !

Be seing you!

    I'm suggesting this tag, not forcing :)) and Yes, I do know Vroom has a pretty long Todo list.
    The whole idea is to easily point to the author of a certain node without actually having to look up who it is... Similar to the node title in [id://]. If saving keystrokes is your main concern, you're always free not to use it :))

    You're a number, just like the rest of us. Learn to live with it! :)))
    Seriously, I'm not one to assign people their own private number. I don't address people by their homenode id, I don't think anyone here does.
