( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm not sure how easy this is to implement, but....

I've noticed that when I get on after a weekend off the Newest Nodes page is heavily clogged. (I can only imagine what happened with ZZamboni, who just returned from a vacation).
I could just clear the list, but I like to go through and read the threads for good messages to vote up and learn from. So here's my thought:

Why not only list Notes/Replies to threads that are NOT listed as Newest Nodes?

Of course, to be perfect it would have to know the ancestor node, which it probably doesn't, otherwise we'd have links to the thread-starting node. But a simple Regexp should match most of situations.

/(Re:\s?|Re:\s?\(\s*\d+\s*\)\s?)+ (.*)/
That's my 30 second version to match the name of the ancestor node in $2. Doubtless a better one could be worked up with a little effort.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
