Pony Request: Re-promoting Threads with Notable News

With various open threads such as the Nepal Earthquake Thread and the UK Election thread, it makes me think that certain threads where significant events come up days or weeks later, that the moderators would be able to re-promote those existing open threads to the top of the front page, as though it were a new post.

FanFare MeMails on the Pony Express

Could we please give users the option to get two kinds of fanfare-related memails?
  1. An alert when someone starts a thread for an episode of a podcast/show that you're following on MyFanfare. (This is perhaps redundant, but I can't be the only one who doesn't think to wander over to MyFanfare that much…)
  2. A digest listing all of the new shows, podcasts (not individual episodes) and movies added to FanFare in the last week. I can't even think of all the media on which I'd be interesting in seeing the community's perspective, and this would be a good way to discover that other folks want to have those conversations as well.

A Fat Thumbed Pony

Between my fat thumbs and vintage iPhone 4 occasionally having browser stutters, I occasionally manage to mistakenly hit the [!] and scroll through the reasons list in one misplaced thumb swipe. I'm talented like that. [more inside]

I would ride this pony into a sunset and a title card that says The End.

On FanFare, would it be possible to have the option to subscribe to a film club like you can subscribe to a tv show? [more inside]

Treat member's websites as external links?

I have my preferences set to open links in a new window, but if I click on a user's website from their Profile page, the site opens in the same window. Is it possible to get those links to act like other external links? Is there a downside to changing it that I'm not seeing?

Add to favorites straight from the Popular Favorites tabs

Would it be possible to add to favorites straight from the Popular Posts and Popular Questions pages? Just a + sign like on the main page? [more inside]

Pony: "X users favorited" mouseover tooltip

Might it be possible to have the tooltip that shows up when you mouseover the "x users marked as favorite" display the usernames that have favorited it up to that point. I expect you'd have to limit the total number to like...the first ten, or something? I guess it's a UX behavior that I expected but didn't see.
