Ozymandias: Re: Suggestion for post-naming convention

in reply to Suggestion for post-naming convention

Although this is a good idea, I think it'd be easier to use use node id's when linking to replies. It WOULD be nice if a square-bracket link could point to a node id, like this:
[node:21820|This node]
That'd be just as convenient for linking, and you wouldn't have to go back and change all your titles.

Update: kudra has made some updated suggestions on her home node, since root level nodes can't be edited (hint, hint).

After discussing it a little more with kudra, I find I misunderstood her intent; She's not proposing we all go back and change titles on existing nodes, she's suggesting we should change node titles on replies. She has a good point with that; I agree completely. To prove it, I'm going to change the title of this reply. <G>

    You can point to a specific node in square brackets...
    [id://10195|Russ' Home Node]
    results in Russ' Home Node

[hippo]: Can anybody suggest a scalar value of $x for which ($x && !length $x) is true?
[Corion]: hippo: If you have a Unicode-wise Perl then likely some zero-width characters in $x would work. Maybe $x = "\x{200b}" works.
[Corion]: Hmm - no, that outputs 1 for me on 5.14 - perl -wle "my $x = qq(\x{200b}); warn $x; warn length $x"
[hippo]: Smart - I'll give that a go. Thanks.
[hippo]: Ah
