Why not add it to my personal nodelett?? Laziness (hey Larry Wall says it's a virtue and that's good enough for me ;-))
The serious answer is that I had considered that as an option. However (there's always one of those with me, isn't there) I had assumed (rightly or wrongly):
- The header is standard on all pages so we're talking about a (minor???) one time change. If I'm wrong and this isn't implementible simply, please consider the request withdrawn.
- Having it at the top of the screen means I know exactly where to go to get it.
- It also means that if the site tells me my experience has changed and i want to see the writeups to see what may have been affected, thens it's on the same screen. I have to scroll down and indeterminate number of pages to get the personal nodelet dependant on how many people are here.
I just remembered that you can reorder the nodelets so that might invalidate reason 3. I still think a new link in the header is cleaner and simpler.
Feel free to disageee.
