I was just going through Nodes to consider, selected "reap" (for a node that was considered for reaping), hit submit and this was displayed:

You said "I've reaped your node [id://1149099]. Reason: [[stevieb]]: reap: homework question; no perl content " to johnrock47

I've gone to some effort to recreate the message verbatim: that's exactly what was displayed.

I have twothree points regarding this:

  1. Whatever code that generates the [[stevieb]] part, was probably intended to generate a link to the monk who initially posted the consideration, (in this case stevieb).
  2. While I was one of the monks who considered this for reaping (and I don't really have any problem being identified as such), I didn't actually reap the node. Perhaps the message should, more accurately, identify NodeReaper as the one doing the reaping.
  3. Update: Whatever code that generates the [id://1149099] part, was probably intended to generate a link also.

I don't recall seeing a message like that before, so I'm guessing it's new. I can't see anything in Tidings about it. It's potentially related to the experimental change (Reaped Nodes ... Aug 11, 2015 at 04:00 EST), but that's really just a guess.
