For the "personal use only" option, you can do what you're proposing via the Free Nodelet.

I have the following bit of code in my Free Nodelet. It makes a text box pre-loaded with a link to the current node; when you hit <enter> in the box, it sends a /msg to the author of the current node.

<form method="post" action="?" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlenco +ded"> <input type="hidden" name="_redir" value="`id`"> <input type="hidden" name="node_id" value="`author_id`"> <input type="hidden" name="op" value="message"> <input type="hidden" name="replyto" value="user"> <input type="hidden" name="sendto" value="`author_name`"> <label for="replytotext">/msg&nbsp;[`author_name`|author]</label> <input type="text" name="replytotext" size=40 maxlength=255 value="re: + &#91;id://`id`] - "> <input type="hidden" name="sexisgood" value="submit"> </form>

I also have another one just like this but which sends me a /msg.

For more ideas, see Free Nodelet Settings, and the three threads linked there; they explain how the Free Nodelet works and present numerous examples.

We're building the house of the future together.

    Wow, this is cool. I put the following in my Free Nodelet:
    <form method="post" action="?" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlenco +ded"> <input type="hidden" name="node_id" value="`author_id`"> <input type="hidden" name="op" value="message"> <input type="hidden" name="replyto" value="user"> <input type="hidden" name="sendto" value="`author_name`"> <label for="replytotext">/msg [`author_name`|author]</label> <input type="text" name="replytotext" size=30 maxlength=255 value="ple +ase retitle &#91;id://`id`] to '' or similar, see &#91;id://17558]"> <input type="hidden" name="sexisgood" value="submit"> </form> <form method="post" action="?" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlenco +ded"> <input type="hidden" name="node_id" value="`author_id`"> <input type="hidden" name="op" value="message"> <input type="hidden" name="replyto" value="user"> <input type="hidden" name="sendto" value="`author_name`"> <label for="replytotext">/msg [`author_name`|author]</label> <input type="text" name="replytotext" size=30 maxlength=255 value="ple +ase add code tags in &#91;id://`id`], see &#91;id://17558]"> <input type="hidden" name="sexisgood" value="submit"> </form>
    But the suggestion still stands: it would be helpful to have such a templating feature, so that it is available to all "off the shelf". Anyway... thanks!
