Ajax updates that allow us to see new comments without reloading an entire page have been a wonderful addition to this site. Any chance we could get Ajax posting as well? This would be really helpful in long threads which can crash my browser after I post a comment.

Thanks to pb for the Ajax updates on threads. Otherwise I suspect that the election thread
would break Metafilter tonight with reloading. I've already seen a JRun error or two.

Facebook has finished its roll-out of an edit feature for comments on wall posts/comments. If you have a Facebook account, I'd ask you to take a look at it. I think it works and would like to discuss why it could work on MetaFilter. [more inside]

So that new 'more questions' thing on the ask.metafilter front page? How do I turn it off? I don't want to load an ever growing mega page with everything all at once and apparently neither does my computer. Downloading small chunks was easier for the computer's processer and works way better for my skimming, and I want to go back. [more inside]

What happened to the pony we named "Wildfire" -- i mean, the "x new" feature? Gone already?

Pony request: I like the way new comments are reflected in the document title. Could we do the same for the main page? [more inside]

is a bit of overkill, in my humble opinion. None of the sugestions on the page is relavent. My clicking of the [+] failed because my hellish internet connection hadn't loaded the page completely yet. Is this necessary? I'm quite happy for clicking the [+] to just not work
, rather than being bumped off the page.

Teeny-tiny pony request: Adding
favorites is all ajax-y and lovely. Removing
favorites - from your favorites page
- causes a refresh and a bump up to the top of the page. I can has ajax pls?

Would it be hard to enable AskMe's tagging system with a bit of AJAX so existing tags are pulled from the database as you type them -- kind of an "auto-recommend" feature -- in order to prevent redundancy?

Without complaining about a specific thread, Matt, can we get "flagging" to be inline/ajaxy, as a drop down, rather than the press, choose, new page, back to thread? The way that the favorites work?

I'm testing out ajax favorites on MeFi right now (only www.metafilter.com). If you open any thread you can add the post or any comment as a favorite without leaving the page. Lemme know if you hit any snags and please hold off on "but, but, can you also make it do x?
" requests until we're sure it works in most all browsers.

FYI: the tabs on mefi, metatalk, and ask mefi are no longer ajaxy, loading whole pages instead. They all have permanent easy to read URLs and your back button works again.

I don't mean to sounds like a complete luddite, but is there advantage to the new ajaxy front page other than being cool and web2.0-ish?

Musical pony requests: could the "add to favorites" flag be set so that clicking it does not interrupt songs in progress, and could the volume settings be saved somewhere?

I'm testing out a new ajaxy spellchecker here on MetaTalk for the next couple days. Let me know if you find it better/more useful/buggy. If all goes well, it could be carried over to every textarea on the server.
