With the Everything Engine
, the term node
has many definitions. First of all, it's what you get when you click a hardlink- that is, one or more writeups with a box at the bottom to add your own information. That's the most oft
There is, however, a broader, deeper, darker meaning. This may be confusing, so read it several times. Everything in Everything is a node. All of the following are counted as nodes in everything statistics and the stats nodelet:
- Nodes, the first definition above- this includes nodeshells.
- Each writeup- that is, the portion of a node submitted by a user.
- Each user's homenode, which is actually the user's node, in more ways than one.
- All superdocs, nodelets, themes, and "Special" documents
- All deleted writeups- that's right, writeups never die, they just become harder to see.
- Each individual section of code
- everything else
This is why there are twice as many "nodes" as writeups.
