Yet again I have a suggestion for the Newest Nodes page (still hoping for the # of replies feature!). Clearing Newest Nodes with "I've checked all these" is a rather broad slash at clearing stuff out when you've gotten behind; it might be good to have PM not include nodes in the list that you've actually read (i.e., on a per-node basis). This would essentially entail implementing a history system, which would probably be fairly database-expensive (requiring an additional update for each node accessed) and so possibly not desirable, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.
RE: Suggestion for Newest Nodes (kudra: prevent titles from matching superdoc nodes)

    Vroom, would you please change the title of athomason's message? It's rather disconcerting to get a 'multiple pages' message when you select Newest Nodes. Perhaps it shouldn't be possible to create a node or make a username which matches any of the superdoc nodes?

    I think this discussion relates to Massive Newest Nodes Page, so here's a link to it.

    Update: The node I replied to was named 'Newest Nodes'. vroom renamed it to Suggestion for Newest Nodes.

      Another example of what a good place the Monestary is - as Monk of Monks, vroom still manages to be very quick to respond to polite requests like kudra's.
