Hi Jim Barry,
It sounds great incorporating the ideas site and others into GeoNet.
Perhaps off-topic, but I'm not sure I completely like what GeoNet does to any link included in a post (the "auto-title"). Just look at the links below, that link to the Home REST folders of 3 different sample servers:
I noticed you can click on the link, a "hyperlink/insert link" icon appears and allows you to change between auto-title, bare url and "un-link".
Now, when writing a post, place your cursor on a hyperlink and click on the "insert link" button. This will remove the actual hyperlink and leave the "auto-title" text, which in the case above is not very useful. I think there is some room for enhancement here...
Kind regards, Xander
