We're testing out a new way to flag posts and comments that lets people include a note to moderators if they'd like to. It's enabled for this thread only so you can see how it might work. [more inside]
Would it be possible to get the ability to filter MetaTalk posts by tags and create "My Talk"? [more inside]
ObitFilter - Maybe it's time. Awesome people seem to be dying at an unprecedented rate, and the MetaFilter Front Page is filling up with Obit posts. Frankly, it's getting depressing scrolling the main site and seeing obituary post after obituary post. When someone famous dies we can generally assume that someone will post about it. Why not create a new section for Obituaries Only. This will keep the Main Page from being cluttered up with obituaries all the time, while still providing a space for them. When someone prominent passes, we can post about it "on the black," and when people hear about someone passing they can go to ObitFilter to join in the grieving without being distracted by election posts, cat videos, etc.
Can we have an "add to activity" button on the front pages like we do for favorites? If so, what should it look like? Discuss.
Can we add the show/movie rating (PG, R, TV-Y, etc) as a searchable item for each show in FanFare? [more inside]
Would anyone else like to see a rating system added to FanFare? [more inside]
Would it be possible to add a feature to the new post form that checks for URLs while the user is writing the post, and instantly notifies the user that the post is potentially a double without having to hit Preview? It can be a bummer when you've written a long FPP and then discover it's a double on preview. Site search/domain-specific Google search is kind of unreliable for this in my experience. Or, could we have access to the URL-checking system with a user input field somewhere else in the site?
A lot of websites and text editors use Ctrl/Command-K to insert a hyperlink around a highlighted selection of text. It'd be great to have a similar shortcut on Metafilter to speed up post creation!
Chrono-pony request - can we have better timekeeping on MeFi? [more inside]
Now that the book clubs are more or less up and running, why not kick them up a notch and make something like "Metafilter Groups"? An online meeting space to organize, discuss, and experience group activities (like reading books, doing online courses, playing video games, learning stuff, etc.) together with the nice folks here at MeFi.
