in thread Editing node titles w.r.t. Perl 6

I would tend to avoid rampant use of square brackets in node titles. Such use complicates or even thwarts some ways of linking to such nodes.

And, despite the strong preference to refer to the language as "Perl 6" not "Perl6", the nature of search tags is such that the tag for easy searching for "nodes related to Perl 6" is "perl6" because most search methods know that searching for "perl 6" finds things that mention "perl" and "6" (or, increasingly, even things that mention "perl" or "6", much to my annoyance and frustration).

    There are already many brackets in use ... anyway I think adding the tag to the title is just a weak workaround.

    IMHO the real thing would be a better integration of the keyword nodelet.

    That is, at least providing an input box while editing a post and making them searchable.

    Showing the keywords alongside in RAT and Newest Nodes would be a plus.


    OTOH keywords are not inherited from the root node to replies...

      We (all monks) really just need to think of the "title" field as "where you put the keywords" (or really, key phrases).

      I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

        Perhaps the simplest mechanism would be to turn the problem on its head to provide a semi automated solution.

        That is, since most of the animosity is towards non-perl5 posts; have a pre-checked checkbox next to the title field on the create screen labeled [x]Perl5; and ask people to un-check it if their post is not strictly Perl5, and add perl5 to all new posts where it is left checked.

        Then the "nothing but Perl(5)" guys have a clear indication of which posts are suitable for them and the rest of us can make our choices on what sounds interesting to us.
