I find the approval nodelet to be most useful because inter alia it has the full link to the current node already in the [id://...] form all on a line and not as an hyperlink, so that I can double-click-select it and paste it when composing posts (using Firefox under X, that is), which cannot be said of the hyperlinked entry in the "header".

Unfortunately nodes for which {approval,moderation} is not sensible do not have that nodelet and hyperlinking such nodes is (admittedly only) slightly more complex. So I wonder wether an option could be added so as to turn on the approval nodelet on all nodes, of course with its fields disabled where they would not make sense.

PS: I'm aware of the tip at the bottom of How do I link to a node on this site by number?, but that is not quite what I'd like...

      As I wrote to you in pvt msg it seems great. I have now installed it but maybe I'm just too dense. How is it supposed to work? I tried both with X(-like?) copy'n'paste and with CTRL-C + CTRL-V. Yes: I restarted Firefox.
        Just right click on a link (or whatever invokes your context menu) and select "Copy Link as PM Shortcut".

    There's also the complete [id://...] plain text link in the "node status" nodelet.
      Thank you, this exactly what I needed. What is really funny is that I do have it activated. But it's at the bottom - time to move it to the top, I guess...
