Replying to Homenodes

in reply to Mr. Muskrat

This should really be in Perl Monks Discussion but I wanted to see if it could still be done. I copied the url for replying to a node and pasted it into my favorite text editor. It took a couple of seconds to change the parent, lastnode_id and parent_node to point to my homenode. I then clicked the link and what should I see? A reply to my homenode titled RE: Mr. Muskrat.

Should we be able to? Why or why not?

Where will the replies show up? On the persons homenode? Or simply in Newest Nodes? I'll find out here in a minute when I hit submit. Updated: It appears that they only show up in Newest Nodes and Message Inbox if you have the notify on reply option enabled.

If we are allowed to reply to homenodes, where should they show up? A private message to the person perhaps?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I like the idea of being able to reply to homenodes. When I see a cool or informative homenode, I generally want to tell the author my thoughts and feelings about it. What better way than a reply to the homenode? You can still see the homenode when writing out your reply.

    Perhaps we should be given the option of having a reply to link added to our homenode?

    When replying to a homenode, couldn't we be given the option of making the reply private?

      I like that idea. Of course, sending a Chatterbox /msg works too... I've had several interesting conversations started by private CB /msgs about homenodes.

    I don't know if we should be able to do this... but I tried to do the same thing sometimes ago, without success; may be we need a minumum level... i'll try again :)

    In the meanwhile, just put a link in your 'user information'...

    Ciao, Valerio

    What a pity it doesn't seem to work anymore...

      That is correct.

      As usual, just blame ar0n. ;-)
