I've noticed a few people link to nodes that aren't there but should be. (e.g. someone linked to MakeMaker
when the only info is at perlman:ExtUtils::MakeMaker
. Reaper got my attempt to link one to the other.) Maybe sometimes they link to a node that doesn't answer a question or provide as much info as certain other nodes.
I love this site, but searching is sometimes not as easy as I'd like, because the titles of nodes are not always the words that people would search with. Maybe it would be nice to see some crossnoding. Nodes that show up in searches and point to information already in the system. I think this would be useful. Nodes that point to one or more nodes. A place to put them. Could you put them in the discussions?

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
