        Oh, you only wish you could be as cool as me.

          • I don't see a 'quote' button. Where did you hide it?

              Ah, forgot to mention one thing: you need to have Discussion2 turned on. You should see "Slashdot's New Discussion System Testing" under "Discussion Style" on your comment preferences [perl.org].
              • O well. No quotes for me then.

                Speaking of which, is use.perl running an older slash? The floating comment thingy works fine for on Slashdot (sites in the left column), but on use.perl it obscures the top of the screen.

                Why yes, I am a Safari user. :-)

                  No, useperl is actually a newer version of slash. It's just a design difference. useperl actually has no room on the lefthand side. We'll be cleaning up the horizontal bar though, sometime soon.

                Do the titles have to cascade in this mode?

                  I don't know what you mean. Please explain titles/cascade.

                    • OK, now explain "have to." :-)

                      The way it works is that if the comment is a reply and has the same subject line, then we just use "Re:" in "abbreviated"/"oneline" mode, to reduce clutter and take up less space. There's no way around that currently.

                      Does that answer your question? Would you prefer the whole subject line be displayed?

                      I would actually rather it do this:

                      That way it stays on the "page".

                    • I don't understand. They are indented because they are children. If they were immediately below instead of indented, they would look like children of a common parent, instead of children of each other.
              • Ah, forgot to mention one thing: you need to have Discussion2 turned on.
                This convinced me to turn on Discussion2.
