in thread -ve XP, node reputation, voting and learning

But if every one is going to comment their votes, soon more than half the posts here are about explaining their votes. But since you can vote on those votes, eventually, all that's being talked about is how one voted. Perl content will be hard to spot.
That's one application for the /msg facility in the Chatterbox. You can give a private message to the author, congratulating them on a good node, or LARTing them without embarrassing them in public. However, if there is a correction to code or factual inaccuracy, it is a much better idea to post a reply, so that everyone can get the benefit.

    I've never used the chatterbox, and I never will. Not as long as it has a tiny, tiny, tiny textfield to input your stuff in, and an itty-bitty column cramped in the right column for reading. The textfield to put your normal posts in is already small enough (djees, even in the 70's we had 80x24 ttys) to get claustrophobia. If I want to chat, I'd use IRC. The simplest of clients has a better interface than the chatterbox.

      How about some user defined CSS for the writeup edit box, the Java Chatterbox for chatting, and the Message Inbox for (at least replying to) /msg's? Even with ye olden days Unix tools, the idea was that users should be able to choose things to their liking, and the monastery is the most accomodating website I've run across with regards to letting you set things up the way you like them best.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

        The Unix spirit also means reusing tools. If you want to send me a private message, and have some chance of reply, do what people have done for more than 15 years already: send me email. If you want to chat, use IRC.

        I don't believe every web site should have its own set of tools to basically do what has been around for eons.
