In my opinion Scratchpad has some limitations:
- space is limited and nothing will warn you when you reach the limit of 64Kb;
- nodes are added using href links, wasting even more space but probably saving some load to the server;
- it isn't devoted only to bookmarks;
- it doesn't detect duplicates (Personal Nodelet has the same problem of course);
- it cannot be accessed by programs if it is marked as 'not public', even if you provide your login and want to access your scratchpad.
Using your brower bookmarks isn't a good solution, because it may be difficult to obtain a 'bookmarkable' address after you voted on a note.
So, I think coreolyn
has some reason on his side, but I would ask for something different: a third link to something external and user defined that would receive the id of the node currently showed. This solution would provide a hook to implement your really personal way to set bookmarks.
fixed an error
is right, it is possible to access your own scratchpad parsing user info, but the canonical solution remains broken.
In the meanwhile, larsen
informed me that there is a patch from belg4mit
that would solve the href problem.
clarification for tye
: the canonical solution is to use displaytype=xml
on a user node. In normal conditions, with scratchpad public, I see the content in the data section; otherwise it is not shown. Using displaytype=raw
with node 108949 is not a good solution, because the page would be rendered, altering the original content.
