in reply to Linkable Node ID in Writeups

I think it is a useful idea, but not a very good design. First, showing one number, but linking to another number (either in the Node ID or the title) can be confusing. Second, i really like being able to quickly double-click the Node ID for copy and paste purposes - make it a link and now i have to carefully select it, always a PITA. How about something like this:
Node ID Parent ID Writeup Rep Created
190426 190421 Re: owner of a file 666 2002-08-15 11:05:16
190417 190399 Re: Showing , etc in HTML 42 2002-08-15 10:48:52
UPDATE:
Yes. RootID is a much better name for that column ... it even physically fits better. :)

    While we're on about this, how about another slight modification; adding a "Rep" and "Num" column to show the current reputation of the node, as well as the number of replies (children) inside that node.

    Also, calling it "Parent ID" is a bit misleading, since the parent of a reply wouldn't always be a root node. How about "Root ID" instead?:

    Node ID Root ID Writeup Rep Num Created

      The reputation shouldn't be there for all the reasons it's not ordinarily visible from anywhere else either. I agree with the rest of the suggestions though.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

        I second the notion that reputation should remain hidden, though I think that it may have started by hacker copying his own writeup listing.
