I was wondering what the community and dev team thinks about adding a ctrl+enter shortcut to post comments. It's something that's fairly common elsewhere on the web, and in my opinion it would be nice to have it here as well. Going to the mouse to click on Post Comment is not exactly a big deal, but it would be cool if there were a keyboard shortcut for those of us who are slightly mouse-averse.

An intuitive interface. Built-in keyboard access. Three world-class modulators.

Is it just me? because i'm fairly uncomfortable and annoyed with how this thread
has become the "soandso show" of over 1/4 posts by one person...

Episode 90 of the MetaFilter podcast was recorded today and runs about an hour and twenty minutes long, covering all the best bits from the MetaFilter universe for February.

When browsing on my mobile device, I noticed a rendering issue
and wondered if others have seen the same?

Similar to fffm's pony request
from January, I wonder whether it would be possible to add another flag category or two.

I hate to be the poster child for tinfoil, but... (dons tinfoil hat): I have recently had several comments deleted from threads
relating to the Ukraine crisis.

I wonder if it's okay to have a contest where I ask people to suggest possible subtitles for a book I'm writing. I would give the winner a prize, like send them some food from a mail-order place or something (haven't thought that part through yet because first I want to know if this is a verboten thing to do or not).
If it's okay, would I post this contest on Projects? or where?
I didn't contact staff because I thought this would maybe not be a hardwired policy question.
Thank you for feedback.

In the sidebar of the main Metafilter site, there's a Feb 21st entry* reading, in total:
brainmouse reminds us: "Check out deezil's and samsara's profiles as really fantastic starting points."
Say what now? That blurb would benefit from a few more words, like "Concerned about malware on your computer? brainmouse reminds us ..."
(* yes, I'm slow)

Did MeFi just get a new favicon? It looks strangely different all of a sudden.

Hello all :) I would like to post a meetup event. I am new to Halifax (Nova Scotia) and several AskMeFi responses suggested this as a good way to make friends. I would like to know the behavior Metafilter participants expect of the "hosts" ... More inside ...

Since not everyone is USian, I think it would be a good idea for people to refrain when possible from using "we" when discussing the people of the United States. This especially rankles when discussing military action, as in "we should drop a nuclear weapon," as even fellow citizens may not want to be included in that "we".

Youtube is Google and coercive. I just tried to simply 'Like' that husky/head-scratch video, and was told I had to log-in. I loged-out permanently several months ago when I couldn't comment without logging in. Deleted all my content, too.

Lipstick Thespian points out
that my latest post about clothes is "absolutely the dumbest thing I've ever read on Metafilter." They've got a point! I admit I've posted some real stinkers
in my time that I would gladly take back. So I'm wondering, what are some things that you yourself have posted, that in retrospect you would take back, and why?
