in reply to Small text change in "How do I change my preferences"

Indeed, I was greatly confused for a long time by the "Some notes below your chosen depth have not been shown here" thing. I thought it had something to do with moderation, aka slashdot. Maybe that should read "chosen nesting depth" when hiding content that is deeper than your "chosen depth".

    That seems to be the right description for that "warning". And I guess that a link to the User Settings should be added in that warning, something like this:

    Notes below your chosen nesting depth have not been shown here. To alter this, adapt your User Settings.

    To finish it off, a named anchor could be added, like this:
    ...adapt your <a href="/">Note Configuration</a>.

    In that case, an anchor should be added to the User Settings:
    <a name="nestingdepth">Note Configuration</a>

    That's beyond my reach though.

      What initially confused me about that warning was that I hadn't chosen a value, and no value was shown on the edit prefs page. It'd be more clear if the text fields populated with the default value, or if leaving them blank meant "show everything".
