Quick Modern Theme Updates

We made a few changes to the modern theme today. At mobile widths, the Skip button is now no longer the Skip button—it's an arrow pointing down. At tablet/iPad widths there's a new similar down arrow button in the fixed header that appears as you scroll. And behind the scenes we enabled Grunticon as a fallback for older phones that don't have SVG support. [more inside]

Quick FanFare Updates

We made a couple changes to FanFare today. We added a show, movie, and podcast search to the front page sidebar. For movies we added links to buy or watch a particular movie at Amazon (if it's available). And we updated how movies are posted. [more inside]

This Pony Wants A Job

Right now, it looks like you can make unlimited posts of jobs in the "jobs" section, but you can only post one notice of availability that has to stay forever and can't be changed or added to or bumped up or otherwise flagged that "Hey, I'm still looking". Can we....do something about that? [more inside]

Comics (& other serialized content) on Fanfare

On Fanfare Talk, some mefites have expressed interest in discussing comic books on Fanfare; the necessary metadata could come from comixology or comicbookdb. What do other folks think about this idea? And are there other serialized media (ideally with metadata sources) that might be good to add?

Length limit for MeFi posts?

I wanted to ask MeFites and the mods if there is any interest in having some sort of length limit for MetaFilter posts. [more inside]

All I want is a small hidden pony

It would be great to have disclosure widgets on the Recent Activity page, allowing users to collapse and expand the display of each post shown. [more inside]

Did they eat that?

AskMe often receives questions of the "Can I Eat This?" variety. It would be nice if, when these were marked resolved, the OP was able to indicate whether they had, after all, eaten it, and if so, record what happened (presumably they didn't die, or they wouldn't be around to mark it resolved). My preference would be a little button and a field, with some way of tabulating the results, but it could be just a suggestion included in the "resolve" letter. [more inside]

Pony This Song to MeFi

We have a one-stop button for posting MeFi Projects to Metafilter. Could we also get a one-stop button for posting MeFi Music to Metafilter?

One last chance to be moderated by Matt: feel free to be extreme.

So, mathowie, you are still with us for one last night, as a so-called moderator. Interesting. Beguiling, even. Show us then: what are the uncouthnesses, insubordinations and downright fripperies up with which you will not put, while you are still in power?
