I frequently find myself with time to browse, compose, and share content at about the same time of day. Multiple times it's happened that I type my stuff in, hit 'post' and get an error message that I have to wait, say, 18 more minutes, or 6 more minutes. This is mildly annoying. I suggest the post wait time be shortened from 24 hours to say, 21 hours or 23 hours.
FanFare turns three years old this month and needs pretty pictures as a present. [more inside]
As per Rock Steady's comment in the mega-thread ...thread, I thought i'd set up a separate post about this related content widget pony. [more inside]
My impression is that all of the infodump data is in the public domain. Is that license explicitly stated anywhere? And, if it is stated somewhere, could we get that statement reprinted on the infodump’s home page and possibly bundled with the zipped downloads. It’d be nice to have some legalese posted somewhere so that no one feels at risk of getting into trouble.
Links followed by full URL: Anyone out there have a script or something they could share that does this? [more inside]
My first MetaTalk post, and alas, it's a Friday afternoon pony request for the queue. I think it would be nice to be able to filter my Contact Activity to exclude activity on threads with specific tags. The election threads (yes, of course that's what I'm talking about) have been a lifesaver, and I'm spending most of my MetaFilter time on them. But my Contact Activity is also completely taken over by highly-favorited comments in those threads, usually topical but transient, and I'd like to be able to see what else is happening on MeFi. And I think others might like this feature too. [more inside]
Since the megathreads are so long and cause problems with mobile browsers occasionally reloading the page, I've found it easiest to "checkpoint" my place by occasionally clicking on the timestamps so that my browser will update the URL to have the anchor of that comment. That way if the page is accidentally reloaded it will go back somewhere near the right location. If I'm unlucky enough to click on a comment that is deleted due to moderation, the anchor goes away and I must endlessly scroll hoping to find where I left off. Is it possible for the anchor tags for deleted posts be preserved into either the next comment or maybe the [moderators comment] that removed it?
Comrades, I think it's time to revisit the idea of allowing users to post multiple AskMe questions in a week. In the past I have gone on record as being against this, but upon further reflection I realize it was merely kneejerk, reactionary fear of change. Let us embark together down this unknown road.

Hey mods and fellow MeFites. Apologies if this has been discussed recently but I didn't find anything. I have two questions: Can we make it easier to find the Mefi Wiki? And is it okay to add a page of links to groups like Indivisibleguide.org so there's a central list of progressive activism resources? [more inside]
Hey, you folks who know how to do such things… Is it possible to create a Greasemonkey script that would strip everything from a thread except the external html links? After reading this AskMe, I was thinking for those short on time, it would be a pretty neat way to get a MeFi curated news feed. (obviously related to current political events, but I’m guessing this level of participation isn’t going away any time soon)
