in reply to Making Perl Monks a better place for newbies (and others)

I wonder if an RT queue might be a good tool for keeping track of requests and suggestions. It works well in other contexts and requests could be linked back to nodes on PM for discussions.

A few items from my wish list:

  • I too wish there was a preview on the update page.
  • I wish there was a preview on the scratchpad edit page.
  • I wish there was an easy way to find responses to my own posts. An optional filter on Newest Nodes so that it only showed nodes in threads I had posted to would be very nice. A count of responses on the list on Perl Monks User Search would also be helpful.

update: actually, there is a preview on the scratchpad edit pages - I just didn't see it because I never thought to look down for it instead of up top where it is on the comment edit page, and it was always just off the bottom of my screen.

    While wishing, may I/we have some sort of killfile feature please? Such a feature would allow to avoid display of nodes based at the very least on title (regular expression, possibly length) & author; if feeling generous, possibly on the length of the body if not content (regular expression based).

      Hiding all posts by an author can be done through CSS, by using for example the .pmnote-5348 rule to highlight or hide all posts by user 5348. We Stylin'! and PerlMonks CSS HOWTO also contain CSS references.
