on May 06, 2001 at 04:26 UTC ( #78305=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I would like to see a new tag. it would be
and it would take the string and turn it into a full google search string for you. so
[google://perl|Perl Links]
would automagically turn into
[|Perl Links]
for you.

and I just want to say, this is an amazing site, not only is it chock full of experts(r), the signal/noise ratio is better than any website that I have ever been a part of... I look foward to "wasting" many hours here. thanks again .mincus

    I just added the google link functionality. Update: [lucky://blah|stuff] now works too.

    Since this the the only node that came close...

    New tag suggested : [author://].
    Imagine a CB moment :

    Wow... [id://5993] is really cool... [author://5993]++

    The purpose of this tag is pretty obvious :)

    ... Quidquid perl dictum sit, altum viditur.

      OK, so here are the arguments again ;--)

      • more work for Vroom for very little benefit: [author://5993] instead of mirod? Not a lot of keystrokes saved!
      • I like calling people by their names, and it's much easier to remember than an ID number.
      • I am not a number, I am a free man !

      Be seing you!

        I'm suggesting this tag, not forcing :)) and Yes, I do know Vroom has a pretty long Todo list.
        The whole idea is to easily point to the author of a certain node without actually having to look up who it is... Similar to the node title in [id://]. If saving keystrokes is your main concern, you're always free not to use it :))

        You're a number, just like the rest of us. Learn to live with it! :)))
        Seriously, I'm not one to assign people their own private number. I don't address people by their homenode id, I don't think anyone here does.
