I've killed so many writeups today I've lost count. I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- we need a better system for teaching new noders. I always feel bad when I have to kill some poor newbie's first writeup -- I know how much it discourages -- yet it's necessary to preserve some semblance of order and quality.

I haven't Cooled very much in a while, but I'm open to suggestions. Have you seen a node worth the Page of Cool? /msg me, and I'll take a look.

Does anyone think this feature suggestion is worthwhile? ... put a "e" or other mark next to editors and gods in Other Users, which, when clicked, opens a popup window that lets you send a chatterbox /msg. This would be quite useful for newbies if properly promoted.
