in reply to Automatically add name to replies

I like the concept of differentiating the different replies for a node. kudra's solution seemed okay but not exactly what I wanted, so I've been prefixing my nodes with a brief subject one-liner, like CGI::Vars, or sendmail. Seems to work rather well for me, although I wish more people would do it. ;)

    I'm actually inclined to agree with alakaboo. Were the change mirod suggested made (namely that search results include the author's name), I would see no further reason to put my name in the title and would stick with just my summary instead of the name/summary combination I use now.

    At the time that I made my original proposal, supersearch couldn't be limited by name, and newest nodes didn't show the author's name by the post in most instances. Things have obviously changed a bit since then, and in light of that I would much rather vroom implement the one additional change that would make name-attaching useless than have him automatically attach names.

    Oh, and tilly, I still have that link on my page, it's just called 'My title scheme' instead of what you remembered.
