in reply to Name Space Index + Mug?

This page has no rocket science - it just indexes the first node added to the thread by a given monk. If you didn't put your etymology on your first sub node then may I encourage you to edit the sub node?
I'm one of those affected by this, uh, bug. :) My first node in that thread is a Re^3, but I did explain my moniker in my first directly reply to the node. I'm pretty certain that this applies to most everyone else who is currently misindexed - so I'd like to propose a very simple heuristic: if it were biased towards picking direct replies over deeper ones it would likely make not a single wrong choice about which nodes to index.

Makeshifts last the longest.

    A very sensible suggestion... but if left to me for implementation it may be year or two... if any kind reader feels like tweaking the code in this direction, please do - it's on my scratch pad, let me know when it's ready for use!

[erix]: "code of someone that died" -- kinda nice if your code stops working too
[erix]: hard to implement, hmm
[Corion]: erix: Well, they also seem to have changed the server, or some software, or whatever, and seem to be in the process of changing the DB schema from having the "username" as primary key to something else.
[Corion]: Far too many things being done at once, or maybe only now has it become apparent that nobody knows that piece of software anymore
[marto]: good morning all
[Corion]: I consider having an abstract key as userid in your system good, because the "real" company-wide (or even larger) user id will likely not fit your criteria well
[Corion]: A good morning marto!
