in reply to Quicker more accessible link to my writeups

What about adding the writeups node to your "personal nodelet?" That way you can access it at any time, and vroom doesn't have to make any changes.

I'm not opposed to the idea, but I don't know as it's useful enough to everyone to be worth it.

    Why not add it to my personal nodelett?? Laziness (hey Larry Wall says it's a virtue and that's good enough for me ;-))

    The serious answer is that I had considered that as an option. However (there's always one of those with me, isn't there) I had assumed (rightly or wrongly):

    • The header is standard on all pages so we're talking about a (minor???) one time change. If I'm wrong and this isn't implementible simply, please consider the request withdrawn.
    • Having it at the top of the screen means I know exactly where to go to get it.
    • It also means that if the site tells me my experience has changed and i want to see the writeups to see what may have been affected, thens it's on the same screen. I have to scroll down and indeterminate number of pages to get the personal nodelet dependant on how many people are here.

    I just remembered that you can reorder the nodelets so that might invalidate reason 3. I still think a new link in the header is cleaner and simpler.

    Feel free to disageee.

    "don't know as it's useful enough to everyone to be worth it"
    I agree with Ozy on this point, since it would only save one mouseclick.

    "add to personal nodelet?"
    but I wouldn't do this myself, since I use personal nodelet to temporarily link posts to revisit for ++.

    Different bonks for different Monks, is what I always say.
