in reply to Significant Updates for Updatable Root Nodes (or Others)

I like this idea, if it's voluntary, but I'm not sure how best to display modified posts. Would it be better to create a Recently Modified Posts section? (I think not.) Do they belong in Newest Nodes? (Probably.)

Should there be a special marker for updated posts, or a special section? Probably...

For the latter idea, I prefer behavioral solutions, not technical constraints. That's just me, though. :)

    i of course intended it to be voluntary, just like it is for home node updates. this turns it from a technical to a behavioral solution, since somebody has to choose to flag an update as significant.

    as for the display of these choices, i would agree that they probably belong in Newest Nodes, with some some of marking to denote them as updates. i'm not sure they should be in another section, but if they were, they could better remain optionally hidden based on a setting in the user settings.
