Wow, what an improvement over the old FAQ which, every time I reread it, led me to use the Chatterbox incorrectly.
I suppose it's probably a little late for this, but the interface seems a little inconsistent, and I'm a big fan of consistency even if I'm terrible about keeping it. ;^)
For instance, it might be nice if the documented interface ran something like:
- [user:vroom] for user links
- [node:979] for nodes
- [cpan:Parser::XML] for cpan
This is just off-the-cuff you understand, but something like that would certainly be easier for me to remember/use in a day-to-day context.
