'Tis a tiny mail pony...

Firefox should highlight MeFi's pinned tab on new mail like it does on new comments. [more inside]

Feature request: add "Add to Favorites" on the /favorited page.

Hello! I have clumsy fingers and clicking the plus sign to "add to favorites" often leads me to the /favorited page for that post, because I miss. It'd be neat if the option to "Add to favorites" appeared on that page, so that I wouldn't have to go back to the original post/moment and try again (often missing again). Thanks for your consideration.

Announcing My FanFare

We just added My FanFare: a way to tell FanFare which shows, movies, or podcasts are your favorites and then limit what you see to posts about those favorites. [more inside]

Ask The Pony Anything

I've felt uncomfortable for some time with the "AMA (Ask Me Anything)" posts at Reddit becoming such a high-profile 'thing' that they make it too easy to ignore that place's general toxicity. Then this happened and I really wasn't surprised. But I wondered "why does Reddit have a seeming monopoly on the format? Couldn't some other site do something similar, but SMARTER and MORE CIVILIZED? Someplace like... here?" (Wait... don't reject out of hand until you hear details of my proposal) [more inside]

Profile Links on Mobile Devices

The number of times I've intentionally tapped the profile link of a thread poster on my phone: 0. The number of times I've accidentally tapped the profile link of a thread poster on my phone: an embarrassing amount, uncountable in modern number theory. Can we do something about that? [more inside]

Could we allow comments to be posted on music.metafilter.com by Ajax?

I was listening to a piece of music on MeFi Music and posted a comment. It was great that it asked me first if I really wanted to leave the page, but it occurs to me that you could also set it up so that the comment is posted by Ajax instead so you never leave the page. Last time we had this brought up was Nov 2012 and in the context of long threads rather than threads where posting actively interrupts a listening experience. [more inside]

All I want for Christmas is a tiny pony

Would it be possible for the "Random" link to be included in mobile view? I like this feature a lot as it's a great way of finding cool FPPs from the past, and some old MeTas are just...wow. But to get to it I have to switch between the mobile and desktop views, which is a pain on my phone. On desktop it's between the "Popular" and "Best Of" links so could it be put there on mobile as well? Does anyone else even use it on a regular basis?

Nintendo love?

So hey, any chance we could get Nintendo (Miiverse) IDs for Wii U/3DS users as an option for other networks we use on the profile page? [more inside]
